Unfortunately, incessant lobbying by US feminazis and anti-sexual Christian fundamentalists, in the US and on location in Third World countries, has lead to a clear anti-male bias in the laws of many poor nations.
It is by now common practice in the courts of law of many developing nations that murdering a 19-year old man in a fit of anger is punished more leniently than, after being aroused, touching the genitals of a 17-year old girl, even if this happens with her consent (or even upon her invitation).
Expect 4 to 6 years for the manslaughter of the 19-year old male (and very little public interest), and expect 8 to 15 years for the indecent act involving the 17-year old girl (and front-page coverage in local tabloids for child sexual abuse).
Feminazis and anti-sexual Christian fundamentalists (including media-savvy Catholic priests) have achieved this distortion in the span of about 10 years through a sophisticated campaign.
In well-organized international conferences, which received huge media attention (nothing sells as swiftly as sex), they focused on child prostitution. Typically, they presented a small number of forced prostitution cases involving teenagers, or the selling of 10-year old or 11-year old children to brothel owners, which were widely publicized. These cases were then presented as typical for certain countries.
The feminazis and anti-sexual Christian fundamentalists propagated wildly inflated, totally unproven figures as to how common child prostitution allegedly was in various countries: 600.000 in Thailand, 800.000 in the Philippines, millions in India.
Do some simple math. Thailand has some 60 million inhabitants, of which about 30 million are female. Of these, about 12 million are below 18. Let's assume 6 million between the age of 8 and 16. The 600.000 figure would mean that 10 percent of all Thai children of this age group would have been locked up in brothels, or sold by their parents into prostitution.
Yes, Thailand does have a considerable massage parlor infrastructure. But there definitely never was a problem on the scale announced at those conferences addressing child prostitution. The figures were blatant propaganda.
I am sure a good number of politicians in the countries that were blamed also did the above little math. But would they stand up and tell feminazis and anti-sexual Christian fundamentalists that they totally exaggerated the problem?
In democratic societies, politicians know better than that. Their instinct clearly tells them never to speak out publicly that a moral problem isn't as bad as presented. Instead, politicians always fare better further exaggerating a problem and presenting themselves as the moral crusaders capable of drying up that swamp.
So, instead of defending their countries against the defamation and lies that were circulated by Western feminazis and anti-sexual Christian fundamentalists, they did exactly what was suggested at these conferences: pass new child protection legislation with Draconian punishments.
Harsh punishment for those who keep 10-year old girls in brothels. Nothing wrong with that.
But then, feminazis and anti-sexual Christian fundamentalists made it clear to the politicians that by UN definition, a child is a person below the age of 18. By UN definition, there is no difference between a girl of 7 and a girl of 17.
Furthermore, lobbying by feminazis and anti-sexual Christian fundamentalists has resulted in a decisive redefinition of terms: "intercourse" or "rape" no longer means the insertion of the penis into the vagina, but the insertion of the penis, a finger, or any object into the vagina or beyond the labia, the anus, or the mouth (in case the penis is what is inserted) of a person.
I don't expect anybody to publicly back my opinion, but while I believe it is not decent if an uncle inserts a fever thermometer into the anus of a 10-year old girl (option a), I do believe that it is not as grave an offence as forcing vaginal intercourse with the same girl (option b).
I want to introduce a third scenario: a 12 year old boy who is seen stealing apples is struck by a fruit-stand owner with an iron rod over the neck, and thereafter paralyzed from the neck down (option c). People may consider this a sad case, but a Southeast Asian court will most likely pass a sentence of no more than 2 years, probably on probation. But in some countries, indecent touching and rape with murder already carry the same sentence: lifelong imprisonment.
I have a teenage son and a teenage daughter. That for a man, touching my daughter indecently will mean the same punishment as murdering her, puts my daughter in additional danger. Any rapist should be aware that letting a victim live after abusing her will mean a leaner sentence than strangulating her.
I and, I assume, she herself would prefer, after she has been raped, if the rapist lets her live, rather than strangulating her. I would expect the law of the land to reflect this.
Actually, if the choice is between rotten options, being raped (option a) is probably preferable to being struck by an iron rod and subsequently being paralyzed from the neck down (option c), regardless of the gender of the victim.
As mentioned above, I also have a teenage son. He is healthy, physically and mentally. I am proud of his achievements in school, and I grant him his interest in girls. He wants to buy a motorcycle, so that he can take his girlfriend around.
As he is 18, it is quite natural that his girlfriend is 16 or 17... a child by valid UN definition, which has been adopted by most developing countries (and legally not different from a 7-year old one). As a father, I am proud not only that he is healthy and an achiever in school, but also that he is a good-looking young fellow (being of partially European, partially Asian descent). And yes, I am proud that he is popular with the girls.
I just hope he won't be trapped by a 17-year old bitch who claims statutory rape, just because he touched her between the legs. And all of this because his interest shifted away from that girl, and towards another. Yes, girls, and women, can be very vengeful if the law gives them the opportunity.
