    I think the lowest age for the 10 year difference is 15
    Even there a 15 yo with a 25 yo?
    Should not be

    bystander, this is such an important statement. This has to be the habit to have any kind of order. There can be grace at the margins but you don't attack the margins.

    The weaknesses of our political spectrum as I see them are that the Left always attacks margins and the Right gives no space or grace for exceptional cases.

    One party has goals and the other has systems. Goals with systems is chaos.

    I am not a fan of what I would call "legal anarchy." I am not a fan of destroying a standard for the benefit of one special case. Certainly, when it happens to you, you want to bend the law, as most most laws cannot possibly cover all contingencies as written. But we know the game and the failure to accept line of demarcation is an intellectual exercise in egoism as far as I'm concerned. OF COURSE, we can argue that the margin is in fact erroneously laid. You can do that all day long.

    SO WHAT?

    I'm not impressed with it and as much as I am for individual freedom, I am also supportive of a union that must somehow hold itself together on the basis of voluntary acceptance of standards and not custom made rules for each and every one of us.

    Well, yeah bystander, I don't think I was saying we shouldn't have common standards. All I am saying is that there should also be grace. That can be in how the laws are written or how cases are judged. There is already room for some of that in our judicial system or in how police choose to pursue crime.

    This isn't legal anarchy. It isn't arbitrary either. But it recognizes that there has to be something beyond the law that affects how decisions are made. Call it ethics or morality or discretion.

    The wicked abortionist who bragged about slicing the vocal cords of fetuses so she couldn't hear them scream has lost her licence

    Torres is baby butcherer. The thing is, it's legal in our great Christian, democratic nation. I think I am going to be sick at my stomach.

    Ah, the internet arguing technique of putting "So" before a disingenuous question, pretending to be honestly asking if that's what the other person said, when they obviously said nothing of the sort. If you want to discuss what parts of the law are reasonable or not, let's do so. Making up this sort of poorly-veiled accusation is vile.

    That reminds me of a girlfriend in Austin who also HATED sentences that began with the word "So, ..." She habitually responded the same way, "Sew buttons on your bluejeans." The only change might be her voice intonation or cadence. I must have heard it 10,000 times. And SO now I always hear it when someone says it out loud. If I respond with "sew buttons on your bluejeans," no one has any idea what the heck I am talking about. But I still do it anyway.

    So a company that sells overpriced yoga pants is saying to "resist capitalism." Link. No, this is not from the Onion or Babylon Bee.

    Your exact quote is below. How was my example disingenuous? You think adults having sex with a minor is ok and 10 years is a "pretty reasonable" age difference. Where do you draw the line? 24 with 14 year old? Where?
