We are now living in a Pedophile Mass Hysteria. It’s really mass hysteria about the sexuality of teenage girls and to a much less extent, teenage boys. Teenage girls and to a lesser extent teenage boys are denied agency and conflated with little girl children and little boy children. A 17 boy is the same thing as a 7 year old boy! A 17 year old girl is the same thing as an 8 year old girl! It’s all the same. They’re all just “kids,” and “children.” No distinction whatsoever.
Actually teenagers are not children at all. Instead, as we knew in the Middle Ages, teenager are “little adults.” Teenage boys are just what high school coaches call them: young men. Teenage girls are just what their high school teachers call them: young women.
In truth, teenagers are neither children nor adults. Children are under the age of 13. No argument there. Adults are over the age of 17. None there either. However, people from 13-17 are in between, in a transitional stage, transitioning from children into adults. Teenage boys are what I call boy-men. Teenage girls are girl-women.
We are now in the midst of a panic over the sexuality of teenage girls. Basically they are being treated like 8 year olds, denied all agency. Their powerful sex drive, easily as strong as a woman’s, is denied and reverted back to the non-sexuality of little girl children.
Teenage girls are fully sexual beings. Fully sexual beings have a right to fulfill their sexual desires and destiny of any proper way – either with masturbation or with sex. As it is, not only is ubiquitous sex between teenage girls and adult men criminalized, pathologized, and conflated with creepy child molesters diddling little girls, but teenage girls in general are not even allowed to fulfill their sexual destiny with boys their age. In general, it’s not legal.
My position is that teenage girls are fully sexual beings who have the right to fulfill their sexual destiny through either masturbation or sex, which ever they choose, and these options must be legally available to them.
This mass hysteria is what I call the Teenage Girl Bullshit.
