Adults rooting/dating school kids – is it right when they are just a kid?

 By SockPuppet ~ your thinking mans social commentrator


I know the age of consent is 16.

 And I know that we do not and should not discriminate against gay & lesbians.

 But sumthing about this story …. oh you read it and I will say what I think underneath.

Underneath the quote.

 At the foot. At the arse end:

A SAME-sex couple are overjoyed after James Fallon High School overturned a ban on their attendance at the school’s debutante ball.

Year 11 student Sami Burgess, 17, had hoped to take her partner Karlina Macartney, 21, to the September 19 event.

Ms Burgess said she had sought permission from the principal, but was denied.

“She called me and said others will find it socially unacceptable,” she said.

“I told my mates and they were very unhappy with it and started the petition.”

More than 250 people have signed the petition and parents have contacted the school, resulting in the ban being overturned.

Ms Burgess said the story was not about her, but all gay people.

She said one other person had wanted to take a same-sex partner to the ball, but did not ask because they knew they would be refused.

“I want this to be for everyone in every school,” Ms Burgess said.

Everyone should have the right in society to be able to go as a same-sex couple.”

She said James Fallon was a good school with staff helping her with problems in the past.

A NSW Department of Education and Communities spokesman said the decision was not made on gender.

“It was based on the practice of encouraging students to select partners from within year 11, or to avoid someone with a significant age difference or a current boyfriend or girlfriend.

“The principal finalised the decision after reconsidering the strength of the student’s commitment to the issue and discussion with the student’s parents.”

What I think:

Look at her. Sami I mean.

Shes just a little girl.

Then look at 21 year old Karlina.

Shes an adult.

Clearly an adult.

So why is an adult cradle snatching a year 11 very young looking SCHOOL girl into a leso relationship?

They might be only 4 years age different but on looks at least you reckon this looks like non-predatory stuff?

Where and how did they meet?

How did this kid get hooked up with this adult?

How old was she when they firtst became “partners” 15?

And why does an adult wanna go to a year 11 school deb?

So many questions.

I dunno and I dont like to judge a book by its cover but the question – the big question – needs to arsked:

Should full grown adults – male or female – be having sex with school girls in year 11. That look like Sami?

This is a bit like those two AFL footballers a few years ago who rooted a 16 year old schoolgirl innit?

Go figure. Maybe there needs to be a review of age of consent with school kids and adults.

It just seems wrong.

I just raise the questions here dont shoot me.

This is worth questions I think.

That is all.

    Thankyou Iain for putting a “donate” button right next to my groundbraking post on adults having sex with schoolkids. I think I should be paid to bring these cuttingedge posts to the generals pubics too.

  2. Iain Hall says:

    Yes Socky maybe you could get paid for “these cuttingedge posts to the generals pubics too.” but I haven’t quite worked out how to set up Pay Pal on the button yet so its just aspirational at present . You must have also noticed that I have added a ‘magic button” which will take you to a super Random Sandpit post from the past. Boy some of them are real good and some of then are, well just a little cringe worthy but I thought that it would be a good way to encourage new readers to enjoy a legacy of nearly a decade of blogging here at the Sandpit

  3. SockPuppet says:

    I do not know any pay pals Iain but I accept cheques money orders and cash.

    What do you think of if you had a 17 yearold kid daughter at year 11 and some 21 year old adult lesbian (or bloke) gets her in a relationship Iain?

  4. Matt Patchon says:

    The evidence points to the fact that, on average, the age differences between gay couples, versus heterosexual ones, is significant. Off the top of my head I cannot remember the figure, but it is something like 6 for heterosexual couples and 10 for gay couples. Right, get ’em while they’re young, confused and/or impressionable.

    My concern is that in my day (ah, that age thing again) is that teens may have been sexually confused, but you knew by the time they hit 20/21, the hormones had settled and oriented in the sexual direction that they ought to. Now these kids are being hooked by older gay people, insisting that they ARE gay, and thus removing the idea that they are just going through a phase. They are being trapped in a lifestyle that historically they grew out of.

    Predatory – that is possibly debatable based on intent. Exploitative – of that I have no doubt.

    When the gay community makes up 1.6% of Australia’s population, but accounts for ca 70% of all instances of HIV and AIDS sufferers, any idiot can tell it is an unhealthy lifestyle. But say that, and you get lambasted.

    Any ex-gay will tell you that the lifestyle is one big Meat Market.

    Bring on the lambasting.

    At SockPuppet, you’re lucky “pay pals” didn’t autocorrect to “gay pals”…

  5. SockPuppet says:

    You have hit the same nerve that hit my nerves too Matty when I read this story and even seen Sami on TV. Shes does not strike me as very mature or that she really knows what she is yet. What happens too if like when she grows up she thinks “oh guess what I do like blokes and I would like to have kids”? This story on Fairfax will still be there. “Hey mum you were a leso before you had us – Dont you love Dad?” sort of thing. Its very confusing and I cant help thinking adults should not f*ck with schoolkids minds and bodies and maybe confuse them like you say. Thanks.

    (Iains donations from “gay pals” might work better?)

  6. Iain Hall says:

    I would be VERY concerned to be honest Socky and I don’t think that I would approve at all.

  7. SockPuppet says:

    Yeah good parents would not want there year 11 school girl daughter (especially one that seems immature and looks like a little kid) to be getting way laid by adults I reckon Iain and even if shes 17 would put there foot down and say “you are still at school, you are not an adult yet you look like a little kid and you might be getting into something that you maybe should wait a bit to decide if thats what you really are” sort of thing. Good parents would do that.

    Samis parents apparently approve of there little girl (very young looking kid) of 17 still in year 11 (one and a half years to go in school) of getting involved with the 21 year old adult lesbian though. Why I dunno.

    Maybe we need to look at the age of consent going up – this generation is not so bright you know.

  8. Matt Patchon says:

    You cannot stop kids exploring their sexuality (although I will be trying to curb this with my own), but to get properly on topic, I think school kids should basically be “dating” kids their own age…if at all. I fully support any school that has a policy that limits balls to kids of school age. Thus, if your partner is him or herself not a school student (at this school or another), you should not be allowed to bring them to your end of year ball.

    That was always the policy in the schools I went to – ah, reminiscing!

    Where is the school’s duty of care to the other students?

    It seems that there’s public outrage if there is significant age different in hetero couples, but not the same outrage for homosexual couples. I find that scary.

  9. SockPuppet says:

    This are the ages of consent in different States: http://www.equalityrules.info/guide/sexualoffence.htm

    So in SA and Tassie its higher than the rest which sort of says there might be a case for other States going up to.

    Hey, look at Queensland – its okay for guys have “gay sex” at 16 but not “anal” until there 18. HUH? So only blowjobs then?

    I think we need maybe a law that says people 21 and over cannot f*ck teenagers more than 2 years younger than them or summthing. Gay or straight. That would mean the min age that 21 year olds+ can root would be 19. Sounds fair or what? I dunno but I think its a looming prob.

  10. GD says:

    There should be a ‘like’ button on the Sandpit, because I ‘like’ and agree with this post and the comments. Well said, Socky, Iain and Matt.

    As for getting paid, Socky, how about a few falafels?

  11. SockPuppet says:

    Thankyou GigGuy. I will put up my SSB and Accunt number so you and the general pubic can make payment direct and avoid Iains middleman cut.

  12. Iain Hall says:

    Hey Socky I need my “middle man cut” to pay for my medication that said I have tweeked the format to add a rating function to all posts on the Blog You can also use the “like” button to show your approval if you are so inclined

  13. SockPuppet says:

    You can now pay me in Viagra or Cialis Iain. Its only $15 per 4 bars.

  14. Iain Hall says:

    Strewth you will have obsessives claiming that you have a thing about sex next, not that it takes much to get some idiots going.

  15. SockPuppet says:

    I know what you mean Iain but my Viagra/Cialis comment was what is nown as a Sedge-WAy into the new post on your blogue.

  16. SockPuppet says:

    I do have a “thing” about sex though. All blokes do. Well not that one hes not a real man.

  17. Paul Murray says:

    A four-year difference doth not a pervert make. The usual metric for creepy is “age of the younger partner, minus seven, then times two”. So 17-yo … ah. Ok, so this is over the limit by the usual metric.

    Carry on, sirs.
