The Democrats are bringing our society ever closer to normalizing pedophilia by giving sexual agency to young children.
California is, predictably, leading the way down this slippery slope. Under the guise of combating anti-LGBTQ discrimination, Golden State lawmakers recently passed SB 145, which significantly weakens state laws designed to protect minors from sexual abuse at the hands of adults.
While ostensibly intended to eliminate disparities in the handling of statutory rape cases so that heterosexual and homosexual acts are treated the same, the legislation takes an upside-down approach that puts all children in danger.
Instead of enhancing protections for victims of heterosexual predators, SB 145 diminishes protections for victims of homosexual predators by making it possible for them to avoid felony charges and the sex offender registry as long as the offender is within 10 years of the age of their victim. A 24-year-old predator, for instance, could theoretically receive leniency for sexual crimes committed against a 15-year-old.
