“Nursing orphans are paired with mothers of different species quite a lot, actually. Sometimes the infants reject bottles or have trouble feeding from them. And yes, sometimes the surrogates are human.”

“I think it's really stupid that this is a news story. I'm not gonna get into this woman's personal issues, but why are we reading and commenting about it?”

“What this woman does behind closed doors is none of our business. But she voluntarily had this photo taken and did an interview for a local paper. She put herself in the public eye, with something that is considered taboo and even borderline bestiality. Do you really expect people to not have a strong opinion about this? Like others said before me, it wouldn't be so weird if she at least pumped and bottle fed, the way she discovered he liked her milk in the first place. You're right, it is a stupid news story, but it makes for sensational headlines and more traffic to their site. It caught our attention didn't it? Alright I'm out of here, starting to get nauseous.”

“By definition news is something unusual and/or noteworthy that is of interest to others. This is at least unusual, making it newsworthy.

“Maybe you should learn a little more about this "ridiculous issue" before you go spouting off about it. Skin-lightening products for the entire body are pushed on dark-skinned women just like tanning products are pushed on light-skinned women. It's not about social class--just age-old profiteering that preys on women's insecurities, telling them constantly that they need this product to be "better" than they are.

If a woman uses these products because she genuinely *wants* to look different, fine. But if you removed the outside pressure to meet public standards of beauty, how many women would care?”

“The threat was of physical violence on school grounds the next day. You cannot avoid being mobbed at school by getting off the computer.

It disturbs me that there is so much righteous moral panic over what 14-year-olds are "willing" to do under duress. Shaming them changes nothing. If we're going to wring our hands about anyone's morals, why don't we focus on the perpetrators and leave the victims alone?”

“It's certainly true that young people explore and experiment with their sexuality all the time, often with the consensual involvement of other young people. But I don't think that's the case here. There's pretty solid evidence that the boy made serious threats of harm, and that the girl was very upset. From one of the Australian articles linked in this story:

"The boy made serious physical threats to the underage girl, including that she would get "mobbed" and would be "put in hospital" the next day at school, if she did not comply by indecently exposing and touching herself via a webcam.

The whole thing was recorded, unknown to her, and posted online for "everyone at school and the world to see", a Perth Children's Court magistrate said during his sentencing of the teen, whose identity cannot be revealed.

Children's Court Chief Magistrate Denis Reynolds said the boy, who was posing as a fellow male school student using a fake Facebook account, spent 1.5 hours pressuring the girl in a way that went "beyond bullying" and left her scared and frightened.

"You were aggressive and threatening right from the start," Mr Reynolds said. "...[Afterwards,] she felt sick and ashamed and she also felt her mum would be angry at her.""”

School District Won't Allow Black Valedictorian, Lawsuit Alleges

“Note well: the fine print in the court document regarding Miss Wimberly's "three weeks of maternity leave during her fall semester of her junior year."

Of course: never mind that she returned in time to finish out the semester AND her high school career with her usual outstanding academic achievement. Never mind that by all rights, through her own hard work and determination, she IS the graduating valedictorian.

It could cause a "big mess" because she defied a persistent, pernicious stereotype. Because she has refused someone else's label, proven herself a person of worth and quality, and put not a few of her smaller-minded classmates to shame.

Because, despite our pledges to the contrary, we are still not a country of liberty and justice for all. Not even close. Maybe there's not so much liberty if you're a young girl who's been tried and convicted by a jury of small-town public opinion. Maybe there's not so much justice if your skin is the wrong shade for the wrong side of town--or if people have decided, with malice in their hearts, to kick you when you're down and keep you there.

In the eyes of too many, it seems, making it on your own merits is still reserved for a privileged few.”

“It's blackmail, dude. It's illegal. The fact that he was "just looking to get laid" doesn't enter into it.

Try this:

A. Your kid tells you that you'll raise his allowance if you really love him.

B. Your kid films you having sex, posts it on the internet, and refuses to take it down unless you raise his allowance.

No big deal, right?

That doesn't even address the legal flaw in your argument that the victims weren't "tough enough to say no." Children coerced into sexual acts with the threat of violence do not have a responsibility to be "tough." The adults in their lives have a responsibility to protect them.

You, yourself, referred to the videos as "child exploitation material." You're absolutely right. These are girls--not women--and they were exploited by someone who cared more about his own "hormones" than the harm he was doing to another human being.”
