“Police have been accused of “victim blaming” children who were targeted by grooming gangs in the Telford sex abuse scandal.
Officers investigating child sexual exploitation in the town were sent an internal memo telling them “in most cases the sex is consensual”.
Some of the victims were just 11 years old and specialist child abuse lawyer Dino Nocivelli said: “This is victim blaming at its worst.
“The authorities just don’t seem to get it. Children cannot agree to sex.
“Just because a child is not being physically forced to carry out sexual acts, it doesn’t mean they consented.”
A person under 16 cannot be deemed in law to have consented to sex, but the word “consensual” was used to describe offences involving children four times in the memo.
When questioned about the memos West Mercia Police Assistant Chief Constable Martin Evans still referred to the issue of consent.
He said: “Any incident that is reported to us as child sexual exploitation is investigated as such and is taken very seriously, regardless of any consent which may or may not have been given by the victim.”
Ah…another one of those…
…Force the dialogue into strict submission to the law, and brow beat anyone “not with the program”.
Yes…”They who know best took a vote, and now the law says consent is impossible”…”checkmate!”…
Why is nuance so impossible for these sorts?
…It’s honestly not that sophisticated of a concept…is it?
When we discuss these kinds of issues…there’s a difference between a legal setting, and a natural setting…
…Perish the thought, that an eleven year old who just might have liked [or even loved] the sex, may have considered such a thing to be a bonus in the deal.
…”The law says no”…so…”Obviously, all laws of nature yield and warp, to the words in law books!”…
I swear…the stubborn refusal to acknowledge real world, true consent of the individual, is a form of psychological manipulation…It is an institutionalized lie, used to censor and sabotage real dialogue.
There is no reason anyone should have been offended by this type of revelation, nor those words being chosen to describe it.
…This is common sense reality.
In addition…the police don’t even give a damn, that “the victim consented”…They steamroll ahead, without a care to treat anything different…
…So…what possible good is all of this utterly useless outrage doing?…
Oh yes!…”Even the cops doing their bidding, aren’t submissive enough”…
…Refusing to use their pre-approved lexicon, challenges their “authority” to lord over how all the rest of us think, and speak about this issue.
This is why it is so critical, that we stand up and tell them where to shove their draconian “rules of speech”.
They’ll have you “hog tied, gagged and shoved in the closet”, while they go off and leisurely do as they please with out contest, before anybody else knows what happened.
We must be vigilant, and fight this social cancer.
Stand up and champion truth, no matter who does not want you to.
