Ten Years Old in a Brave New World

 

I was not even slightly surprised to learn that the only mainstream news media following up on the story of the pregnant ten-year-old in backward, benighted Columbus, OH, was Telemundo.

Why should the Woke Media look further, now that this child’s value as a pro-abortion martyr has been spent? Who cares about the actual kid or her situation? For instance, does it matter that the rapist was an illegal immigrant from Guatemala? Or that it is likely that he was/is Mom’s live-in boyfriend?

The rapist wasn’t arrested until those wacky, white-supremacist, right-wing website “journalists” started looking into the totally unimportant and uninteresting part of the story, which was that a ten-year-old child was raped. Now, the rapist (alleged!) is just another POC being mass-incarcerated,  with bail set at a totally racist $2 million. Tragic. Someone really needs to get the right-wing media to shut up.

Mom—who has multiple children living with her—- has been interviewed (by Telemundo, not the New York Times, of course)  and has defended the rapist. She says he’s innocent. Maybe the sex was consensual? In our sex-positive era, it’s just a matter of time before pedophiles get their own stripe on that all-inclusive rainbow flag.

“Consent” being the last, fragile thread constraining sexuality, who’s to say it isn’t time for that too to be declared white-supremacist (you know, like logic and the expectation of being on time for appointments). Free the rapist! And then the bastard-masculinization of the sexual landscape will be complete.

Side note 1: Absent the pregnancy, it is unlikely that this child’s victimization would be discovered or addressed; investigation will surely reveal the sadly-usual pattern of incompetence and indifference on the part of the DHS social workers. Comforting, isn’t it, given that these are the people who, in Woke Utopia are going to be responding to 911 calls instead of the racist police?

Side Note 2: Mom’s failure to protect is, by the way, sadly not unusual at all—my daughter, who has the unenviable task of investigating child sexual abuse, tells me that child pornographers/rapists frequently live with women who overlook (sometimes even encourage) the victimization of children, including their own. One could conclude from this that human beings are a fallen and sinful species, but these are progressives, so let’s instead insist that the illegal immigrant boyfriend and the Mom are also victims of white supremacy and patriarchy, and the only victimizer/villain of the whole piece is Clarence Thomas.

To recap: A ten-year-old child living with Mom, some other kids, and Mom’s boyfriend, gets raped by the boyfriend. She becomes pregnant as a result.

Because the pregnancy is not discovered until after the six-week limit in Ohio, the child is whisked across state lines into Indiana.

An Indiana abortion doctor and pro-choice activist then does three things:

  1. Performs the abortion (for which she is paid)
  2. Publicizes the child’s story as a Post-Roe morality tale for the delectation of her activist audience (EDIT: Including the President of the United States)
  3. Sends the child back to Ohio to live with an incompetent mother and a child rapist.

What does this story tell us about the intentions of the left towards women and children?

There is a “Christian” church in Boston that sports a large banner listing God’s new commandments. You know, all the  Biblical stuff: God wants abortion access “4 All” and sanctuary cities (presumably for illegal aliens and abortion providers, not for gun owners) and God also approves of abolishing guns and prisons and cares about the “mattering” of black lives which, as we have seen, is code mostly for abolishing or seriously weakening police departments, not for protecting black and brown women and children.

Pretty clear, right? When the left has its inevitable triumph (arc-of-the-moral-universe, blah blah), this is what the left will offer to women and children who are vulnerable to sexual violence:

Abortion.

That’s it.

No cops to call.  No prisons in which those who would harm you would be locked up. No personal protection —you can’t have a gun, because of social justice, swords into plowshares, etc. Not even the old-school women/girl’s only spaces will exist,  since the word “woman” is, itself, problematic and fully intact men (including rapists) can always claim to “feel like” a woman.

I miss the patriarchy.

    GrannyDude: Because the pregnancy is not discovered until after the 6 week limit in Ohio, the child is whisked across state lines into Indiana.

    Those who have a better understanding of Ohio’s law claim that the child would have still been able to receive an abortion in Ohio.

    This was all discovered in the last twenty-some years. I remember investigative reporters calling clinics posing as very young teenage girls and inquiring about services. Not one was concerned about how a thirteen or fourteen year-old came to be pregnant. It was all about the procedure.

    And why isn’t Child Protective Services swooping down on this “family” and taking the children away from this obviously dangerous environment?

    Would the last Christian in that church do the rest of us a solid and remember to shake the dust from his feet on his way out the door? Thanks in advance.

    I’ll give you money that all parties are illegal. CPS would no more monitor that situation than our Vizsla male would pass up a chance to race the field. And i’ll bet further it was a medicaid or the Indiana state equivalent abortion.

    The question I haven’t seen anywhere is whether the “products of conception” (don’t you love that sanitary sounding term?) were preserved.  A pregnant 10-year-old is a crime scene and any evidence of the crime should be preserved for law enforcement follow-up.  I’ve seen it stated that the doctor did all required by law, such as reporting the status of statutory rape, but I haven’t seen anything about whether the child was detained for interview by law enforcement or whether, as I said before, DNA evidence was collected.  Has anyone heard or seen this question addressed?

    One more thing.  Since when do 10-year-olds go through puberty?  Isn’t that very early?  Or have I just not been paying attention all these years?  And I, too, thought first that everyone in that household is illegal, which would account for CPS not paying attention.

    Whenever I hear about something horrible happening to a child, my first guess is, “Mom’s boyfriend?” More often than not, that is the case. Sad.

    Therefore, none of them can be deported. Kids are all US citizens, and it would be cruel to deport mom and her rapist boyfriend.

    Actually, I don’t think it’s ever been considered, but deporting the alien parents of a US-born dual-citizen would just encourage the parents to transport the child back with them.  It’s not necessarily a separation.

    And the child can come back when he turns 18 if he wants.  Or he can vacation in the US or live with relatives here.

    If the parents are here illegally, the child should not get automatic citizenship based on the principle of perps not being permitted to benefit downstream from their crimes.  I don’t see how this is permitted to continue.  Some of these kids have better benefits than kids born here of citizen parents.  In addition, birth to foreign nationals visiting or working here without resident status should not come with citizenship.  Children born to American parents traveling abroad are American citizens at birth, not citizens of wherever mom may go into labor!  This is crazy.

    It can happen as early as eight. My daughter turns ten at the end of the year. Last week my wife told me that she thinks she might be starting to bud. Dad’s not completely ready for that. I’m just coming to grips that she’s noticing boys. My wife says she started around 11 or 12.

    I have a friend whose daughter was that young when she started and my own daughter is now 10 and likely to start this year.

    First, Hispanics tend to mature earlier. Check the record on the youngest mothers and quite a lot of them from Central America.

    Second, the increase of growth hormones and soy in food products may be speeding up the maturation of girls. It does seem to be happening earlier.

    I get why Lot’s wife was turned to salt, she disobeyed God. But I do wonder—wouldn’t it be more humbling to witness his wrath at the wickedness? Maybe a lesson, and a warning?

    I think there’s something to not mourning it or not wanting to say goodbye to it or not being reverent in its passing.

    We typically look back to things we are hesitant to leave.

    No it is not. It Is just another reminder that we are descended from chimps and we are made by evolution to breed and not be good. Without a father to protect her, it makes sense to hit puberty early to attract a mate to provide and protect you.
