RE: LEADING OFF (ERIC’S CREEPY SECOND POST)

Paul. That’s genius. Asking people not to pass along what you consider irrelevant personal anecdotes, but then dragging my daughter into your clumsy attempts to make your point. That point being … what, exactly? That because I have a daughter, I should ask the Lege to criminalize all acts that would upset me? Perhaps I’m missing the refined, subtle point you’re trying hard — so, so hard — to make. The fact that I have a daughter in no way influences what I think the law should be. I’m not that particular sort of idiot, the one who can’t separate his desire to protect his daughter from what makes sound law. My argument is that the law is silly because it makes it illegal for someone to have sex with a 17-year-old woman when she can legally have sex with any other adult on the planet. And you keep saying you think it should remain a criminal act, so the FBvians are right to point out the problems with taking that stance when the world isn’t as black and white as you make it seem.
