Why is this an unpopular opinion? I honestly couldn’t tell you. For whatever reason, society at large seems to believe that when a story comes out about a teenage boy being exploited, sexually harassed, or outright the victim of statutory rape, that they are not the victim, and instead should be happy about it. EVERY SINGLE article that comes out when a woman (specifically a hot women) lusts after or acts on that lust with a teenage boy, the comments section is a litany of people (mostly men) saying that the kid wanted it. Wishing that they were getting sex when they were the kid’s age. It never fails to piss me off.
Just recently, a woman at the front of a Netflix kid’s series called Twelve Forever had a series of Tumblr posts and Tweets where she openly admitted to lusting after, stalking, and outright trying to pursue teenage boys come out. Thankfully, Netflix took immediate action when this woman was outed as a fucking pedophile and fired her ass. Good. I hope that her sick lusting need for underage boys follows her the rest of her life and effectively destroys her career. If there is one group of people who I have ZERO sympathy for, it’s pedophiles. Fuck them. Especially the ones who go to Tumblr bragging about it, like that sick bitch did. She’s a sexual predator, and if you read the archived Tumblr posts, it’s pretty disgusting.
What’s interesting about this is that the reaction to all this is pretty quiet. Not hard to see why. She’s a woman who dyes her hair a color not found in nature, and created a show that as I am to understand has been reasonably popular on Netflix with the future of its production in question. But there are those who have come to her defense. Saw one where a dude laid out a case where all he wanted as a young man was to have sex with a woman, and how teenage boys try to get with girls who are older than them all the time, so what’s the big deal?
The big deal is that this woman is a sexual predator. By her own admission, she has stalked boys she likes, and goes out of her way to try and get their attention. In one of the Tumblr posts, she outright wished that the mother was not with the kid, because then she would have tried to take it much farther. The kid in question was allegedly 14 years old! That’s what she said, so we can’t be sure of the authenticity of that number. Still, taking this at face value, that means he’s underage, you sick fuck! She’s a skinny, reasonably attractive woman. No grown men whose cock you can jump on? It has to be some teenage boy that you met at a carnival? Fucking sick cunt.
I try and rationalize where this mentality comes from. Probably from men who were lonely as teenage boys, and had some girl or some person in authority that they were secretly lusting after, but couldn’t get what they wanted. Now, all these years later, they hear about some kid who got with some hot chick who is an adult and they think back to that and feel that little sting of resentment. So when the news talks about them as what they are – sexual predators – they feel like it’s wrong because that’s what they wanted as a kid. Their sad, lonely teenage years coming back all these years later.
Meanwhile, there are plenty of stories about how boys are exploited by authority figures, like that woman who convinced teenage boys to let her blow them. So many male white knights talking about how they wish it was them. And the reality that some of those boys were scarred for life, all while being told to suck it up because boys can’t get raped. That they wanted it. Because all the teenage boy’s mind is on is sex, right? Regardless of from who or why?
This attitude sickens me. I genuinely try to understand where it comes from, but it just eludes me. Maybe years of everyone saying that all men want is sex and only think with their penises. Maybe men who wish they were the ones who got fucked. Who knows. What I do know is that people who think this way piss me off. It’s people who have never been in this situation. Who have no frame of reference to begin to understand what that’s like. And because empathy is this thing society talks about but doesn’t actually feel, here we are.
And to Julie Vickerman, happy trails, you sexual predator cunt. I don’t feel bad for the fact that your career is over.
