What Part of "Consenting Adults" Do Some People Not Get?

Every once in a while I'll get a comment from someone accusing me of encouraging the abuse of children, or actually abusing children myself.

Nowhere, ever, have I done anything like any of that, or anything of the sort.

I have made it clear, over and over again, in multiple places on this blog, that my support of legal protections and recognition for consanguinamorous lovers pertains to consenting adults.

An adult preying on a child is not about love or sex, it is assault and abuse.

One person, regardless of age, assaulting another person is not consensual sex.

It is insulting to compare lovemaking and recreational sex between consenting adults to preying on children.

I argue for laws against adult consensual sex be repealed or overturned. I do not argue of the age of consent to be lowered.

An adult... ADULT... should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with any consenting... CONSENTING... adults.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
