An interesting talk on Beyond Fear podcast. Scroll down to “Do Women Do These Things!?”
Definitely worth listening to.
Fk contact offenders. If the contact offender was 13 at the time of the offense, I can be far more forgiving in the same way I’m more forgiving for 13 year old murderers. But these women were adults who preyed on young children such as defenseless boys. Fk them.
Criminals of the female type tend to get very lightly with these sorts of crimes, if they’re pursued at all, it’s a bit of a double-standard. If someone does go after them, “my husband made me do it” is a common defense. The police also let them go a lot, and the media shows pictures of them sobbing.
If they were pushing the narrative that criminals are people too, but they still have to punish them to enforce justice, it may be one thing, but there is such an egregious double standard, especially if it’s a teacher doing something with a teenager.
This was my cellmate’s GF. He decided to turn her in after I convinced him that his X was not safe with her because they both engaged in CSA. He didn’t want to hurt her, but after many LONG talks in a closed, very small cell, he proudly told me he’d turned her in to protect his X from further potential abuse. Of course, her defense is he manipulated her. My take from my many hours of note taking with my cellmate is that she was an eager // almost more eager // offender. She’s serving 4 years and he’s serving nearly 9.
