Nowadays, if your kids are “playing Doctor,” you might end up paying a lawyer

December 8th, 2008

I don’t know the details of this case where a 14-year-old is being charged with sexual assault for grabbing one girl’s butt and unhooking another girl’s bra in class when he was 13 , discount cialis viagra but I do know we’ve become way too intolerant of anything that has a sexual component when it comes to children and adolescents.

At 13, ampoule kids are trying to figure out what sex is.

Young kids are physical. After all, click there’s a reason why coaches invented the phrase “stop playing grab-ass.” And kids have been playing “doctor” since before there were doctors.

Of course, serious crimes should be pursued and prosecuted, but punishing normal curiosity is at best perverse and, at worst, counterproductive.

    13 is a bit old for “figuring” stuff out…

    Smells fishy to me ;)

    Hell, I’m considerably older than that and I’m still trying to figure things out.

    How about this case of a 10 year old who may have to register as a sex offender now that he’s somewhat older.

    Its crazy out there.

    Seems to me it would be more troubling if the kids were playing lawyer. After all, that does involve a whole lot of screwing people.

    First base for a lawyer is just talking about fees. Second base is actually picking the pocket. The screwing comes later.

    OK, everyone on this thread (except Wonder Woman and, for once, Nick) is in violation of the “Don’t be more amusing than the Blogger” rule.

    You are now on double secret probation. Don’t let it happen again!
