Got the thread title off of Glenn Beck (I love that guy) and a thing he did this morning. Here's the story (paraphrased, haven't found it online yet). A 22 year old nanny was babysitting a 4 year old boy. He wanted to watch a movie, so what did she pop in? They watched "Die Another Day," the most recent Bond movie. After the Brosnan/Berry sex scene, the kid asked the nanny to take off her clothes. The knee-jerk response is "no." The good response is "I think we've had enough James Bond for one night." Her response was "ok." So she took off all her clothes, put the kid between her legs and let him fondle her breasts. At this time the mom walks in and they both panic, knowing they were doing wrong. The girl's been arrested, but they're not exactly throwing the book at her. The question is: Why? Why is it that women get a free, or at least less expensive, ride on sexual "misconduct?" During the latest rash of female sexual abuses, namely teachers sleeping with students barely into puberty, the women have been getting off pretty easy. Maybe you don't think this, but let's consider a few facts. Fact 1) A man caught with child porn in federal jurisdiction gets at least 10 years, as much time as most of these women get. Fact 2) If they were male teachers sexing up female students, everyone would want to nail them to the wall so bad, they'd be talking death penalty for sex offenders. I will give you that men are far more likely to become sex offenders than women, but if the offender is a woman, why prosecute less? The same excuses given by rapists before the women's rights movement are the excuses given for these reprehensible women, only they reword the excuses. "She was asking for it," has become "You know he enjoyed every minute of it." "He couldn't help himself," has become "She loved him." I'm getting sick of seeing these sickos get off with a slap on the wrist, especially when compared to the penalties of their male counterparts. On one final note, consider the "runaway bride" story. At first, everyone was saying, "The husband probably killed her." Then, when they found her and her fake 911 call, it was, "The stress got to her." Now that he's still going to marry her, even after they've proven the dissappearance was premeditated, the story is, "He's such a great guy. He still loves her after all that." If the roles were switched and he had run away on her, the quotes would have been. "I can't believe he ran out on her right before their wedding without even telling anybody. How cruel," to, "I can't believe he even concocted this fake 911 call to weasel out of it. He should be prosecuted," to finally, "I can't believe how foolish she is for staying with that guy. She should dump him right now." You know I'm right. The feminist movement has been asking for equal rights for decades now. I have this to say. I'll give you equal rights, but at the same time, I want equal wrongs. Is that too much to ask?
