Wondering your thoughts on this? Does this have the same gravity as a Male teacher sending nude photos to a 15 year old student or is that different? There could be more to the story than what we see but does sending topless photos warrant 20 years in prison in your mind?

    I think the idea is not applying a sexist interpretation to law.

    If indeed this is the law we want to have, we cannot have differential application based on sex. True equality cannot have women receiving entitlement consideration and a soft hand where a man must face the fullest duty responsibility and consequence under force of the law. Equality cannot be “just when convenient/it favors me”.

    But the jury (actual or proverbial) has still not even been selected. Still it’s a safe bet that even if convicted, she will likely get a much lesser sentence than a man would in similar situation.

      @griz I am certainly not for any adult having this type of relationship or resembling anything close to it to a child. However, I think you may be being facetious with your answer. In any case, was wondering about the power dynamics at play between say a 28 year old male with a teenage girl versus what happened here…

        I play some Devil’s Advocate with the silly ideologies that seem to hold the media, education system, intelligence and critical thinking abilities of our culture hostage.
        Because they are deserving of it.

        We have classified an adult sexting a minor as criminal predatory behavior. Should different outcomes result based on sex? Do we throw the book at one, and special considerations at the other? Hot stove principle.

        I think an important question that needs to be asked, is whether true and total equality between men and women is even possible?
        Are there sufficient differences (strengths/vulnerabilities/ biological and psychological realities) as to warrant one receiving special privileges and entitlements under culture and law, that the other is bound by culture or law to render unto them but should not expect for themselves?
