Judge: Incest, Pedophilia More Acceptable, Just Like Being Gay
Filed to: HORRIBLE
An Australian judge is receiving a great amount of criticism for comments claiming that incest and pedophilia will become more acceptable over time just like gay rights.
Frankly, the whole diatribe is just plain bizarre, its obvious insensitivity and offensiveness put aside. Even if the judge sees no issue with adult incestuous relationships and can make an argument because of adult faculties of judgement, that has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the defendant was at the time of the first series of rapes 17 years old, and his sister was not yet out of primary school. There is no possible argument here that would make consent even remotely possible. So why even offer these comments as an aside?
This is apparently not news to those who know Neilson's record, either. The judge has also given a reduced sentence to a 55-year-old rapist of his 15 and 16 year old niece because he did not ejaculate inside of her nor "treat her roughly."
But at least there has been a government response. New South Wales Attorney-General Brad Hazzard is calling for Neilson's removal.
Then the commentators jump in where it starts going sideways in record time. first argument is about the age and if its consenting adults, who cares.
Everything gets clarified quickly.
and as you go down the comment thread, people make sure what they think of this argument by the judge in the OP and perhaps the comments before them? But whatever the middle of the thread was a resounding rejection by the open minded crowd of pedos, incent and other assorted taboo stuff.
But someone points out.
Then the "but wait a minute" crowd arrives..
and the inevitable happens as it always does in a Jezebel comment section. Those people show up.
At this point you should just shut the browser down and take a shower but its a train wreck to see if there are other commentators on jezebel that will post something above along that same kind of thinking.
