My Kiddo arrives today! Going to spend a week with me, cant wait. I will be working 1/2 days (at a job I may or not have), which is ok since she is not a morning person anyway.

So if Stool says anything moronic (I know, what are the odds) and I dont catch it, please just cut and paste them into a PM to me, and I will bash her when I have the chance.

Enjoy!

FINALLY! The morning after pill is now available to children! Look for it in the Flintstones vitamin aisle!

"it seems a little weird to support giving what is essentially birth control medication to anyone who walks into a drugstore, when the same people seem to think allowing kids to keep aspirin in their high school locker in case they get a fifth period PMS headache, and selling bottled soft drinks and chocolate chip cookies in the school bookstore, are issues of national concern requiring swift and stringent legislation to prohibit. You canít have a Motrin from the school nurse, kid, and your mom canít pack your lunch, but youíre free to mosey into Walgreens, buy a drug that will force a major organ to subvert its natural programming and empty out the contents of your ladyparts into a public toilet, because thatís what America is all about."

Very interesting. From the same site:

"At any rate, itís unlikely this will stand, and very likely everyone in Washington will do everything in their power to avoid talking about it lest they reinforce any negative stereotypes going into a mid-year election. And given that the delineation between ďminorĒ and ďadultĒ is not as seemingly arbitrary as this judge suggests, the administration will likely be able to uphold their OTC guidelines. But at least this will probably cause you to have nightmares about pregnant twelve-year-olds and allergy jail."

Personally, i liked it better, when i was allowed to work more overtime and pay more taxes, just so more illegitimate and unwanted children could have government entitlements, paying the way for their upbringing.....often, and including their lengthy and expensive prison terms also, as adults.....yeah, give me those olden days of government support at the taxpayers expense.....now, get back to work.....

Personally I liked it better when kids had some "Home training " on morals and ethics and integrity and character builders, but I dare say those have been pitched out the door . Where are the parents who should teach them the rights and wrongs. Society has left it up to our schools and media and books to teach sex education to our young people. How does the concept for young girls to respect their bodies and for young men to treat girls with decency and not as objects of self pleasure come across in today's society ? Society has thrown out the basics of love and marriage ... And heeded the lust and live-in as acceptable. So .. We pay the price for our own faults one way or another.

Apropos your comments, there is a situation in Connecticut at the moment where a couple of 17-18 year olds had sex with a couple of 13 year old girls. tThe boys are being prosecuted but the kids in town have a massive sounding social network against the girls about why they are also not being prosecuted. I'll see if I can find a link. There is clearly a generational disconnect about teh responsibility for sexual activity in kids under 16

Another sad , sad realization of where young people act out their sexual aggressions. I followed the Steubenville case and trial that the article mentions. Very similar , but those men posted their deeds through a social media and I believe in the trial it was used against them .

Our teens today seem to have an issue of not caring about what is right and wrong. 18 yrs old know it is wrong to have sex with 13 yrs olds. But .... did the 13 yrs old have a true understanding how ... Teasing and highly sexual suggestions play on the minds of others and their fantasies? Again .. No Home Guideance about how to conduct oneself with the opposite sex.

I have teenagers and we talk after movies and TV programs about how the actions of those actors are not true life. Teenagers and their brains are not totally developed and their rationale is still a work in progress.:)

There is another aspect to look at . The underlying notions of age appropriate sexual behavior and the laws on statutory rape pre-date the hyper-sexualization of young girls and pre-dates the wide dissemination of sexual behavior in the media, as well as the advent of pervasive media like Twitter. The people wh are analyzing and decrying the situation have one perspective. The kids who are tweeting,etc have a different set of social assumptions

The teenagers have one code of conduct that says that all 4 boys and girls should be held responsible. The grownups and the law cast eh girls as immature victims. My daughters are in their early 20's. I find I am more sympathetic to the CN teenagers

I have a 12 yr old turning 13 this summer .... Do I think that she fully understands the implications of teasing and flirting with someone 5 yrs older? No .. Even though we have discussed this and sex in general ( assuming she is in the majority of kids her age ) she doesn't have the grasp of the emotions that is going to occur during sex. I know very few who are even close to this level of maturity at that age.

By the same token .. I have an 18 yr old too. By law an adult , who wants to be treated as such.. Wants to make ALL the decisions now for herself. The problem is her rational thinking and critical thinking skills are still in development . BUT.. She knows the right and wrong of such actions , maybe not the total consequences .

Even though I sympathize with the older teenagers .. Their right and wrong is developed .. Just not the thinking through to the consequences. Do I think our laws need changed? Maybe .. Maybe not. I believe that most statutory rape laws have done their job ... The only problem may be in teenager to teenager where "consent" is more the issue.
