I have not looked at the Huffington Post or any of the many LGBT web sites and blogs that jumped to Kaitlyn Hunt's support while claiming her arrest was an obvious miscarriage of justice but the facts and I mean the real facts are beginning to come out and Kaitlyn's parents seem to enjoy stretching the truth quite a bit. The following are the facts supported by the following two articles from sites that support gay issues and they do not paint a pretty picture.
1. Kaitlyn pursued the 14 year old minor when she was 18 and NOT when the child was 15 and Kaitlyn 17 as claimed by her family. It was a lie perpetrated by the Hunt family. Kaitlyn turned 18 in the summer of 2012 and this occurred during the current school year and the minor was 14 the entire time.
2. It was more than just kissing and hugging as implied by the Hunt family. The first time they met Kaitlyn used her fingers inside the vagina of a 14 year old. That is just plain wrong.
3. The minor's parents are a biracial couple and were never "okay" with this and asked Hunt and her family TWICE to have their daughter Kaitlyn stop what she was doing. That is their right since the child was 14 and thus a minor.
4. The minor's family did not wait until Kaitlyn turned 18 in order to "get her". They finally went to the police when their 14 year old daughter ran away to be with Kaitlyn which is their right as parents. That was 108 days after Kaitlyn turned 18 which was again before the supposed "love affair" even started.
5. The claims they are in love are contradicted by sworn statements from both parties according to court documents. Whether this is true or not will have to wait until court.
6. The child's parents went to the police because it was the only way they could force Kaitlyn to stop seeing their daughter.
7. The reason they demanded Kaitlyn be expelled from school was because she refused to leave their freshman daughter alone. Kaitlyn pushed the issue and lost.
In Florida the age of consent is 16 and thus NOT 14. 14 year old children should not be in a sexual relationship with an 18+ year old ANYBODY.
Kaitlyn is in this predicament because she REFUSED to stop seeing a 14 year old minor for sex which is a felony even if the 14 year old wants to have sex because the 14 year old is too young to make that decision. She is in trouble because she is dumber than a damn fence post for not stopping when given the chance.
The claims by the Hunt parents that the minor's parents are bigots does not hold any credibility. They attempted to garner the support of the many people that blindly believe anything they hear or read if it supports their opinions or positions. Kissing in a bathroom stall and getting finger fucked by an 18 year old IS NOT LOVE, it is predation of the worst kind because it is an 18 year old taking advantage of a 14 year old. I guess the simple fact she could not get pregnant makes it okay.
This is not some homophobic position but the position of a stepmother that raised a daughter who would have personally castrated any boy that tried to take advantage of my daughter when she was 14 and I can assure you I would have not have been kind to some 18 year old girl taking my daughters innocence.
Now the above assumes the new information is proven to be completely true but mom and dad Hunt have been a bit quiet since some more facts have come out. The irony is Kaitlyn has apparently convicted herself just by her own statements and her veracity will certainly be questioned just by what has been said by her parents and Kaitlyn herself. That is not optimal if she ends up in court.
The one thing that a defendant should rarely do is attempt to intimidate the prosecutor which is what the Hunt family has tried to do with the "Free Kate" silliness. One of the above articles is a retraction of support for Kaitlyn based on the lies that have been told and pushed as the truth.
If the LGBT communities had any common sense they would understand this was wrong of Kaitlyn and court records and depositions back up the claims of the minor's family and NOT the Hunt family. The child was a minor and she cannot give consent so this has no relevance to the case. Kaitlyn now faces 15 years in jail and that is not short time. Do you think any boys have been offered a better deal than Kaitlyn was over the years? I seriously doubt it.
The other issue I have is how is this about Gay Rights? DO gays have an exemption from the law for this kind of behavior that heterosexual couples do not, just because they are gay? I have a bridge I can sell cheap if you think a 14 year old boy and an 18 year old boy would be garnering this kind of support from the LGBT crowd.
It seems to me when you are told twice to leave the girl alone by her parents then you have two strikes and the third strike in this case resulted in a call to the police. Stupidity and stubbornness are not mitigating factors when you commit a crime.
Protecting your 14 year old daughter from a predator is NOT bigotry but then anyone that comes down on the opposite side of a supposedly righteous argument by anyone in the LGBT community is homophobic and bigoted. Rather than wait for the facts the LGBT community has excoriated the minor's parents as bigots and tried to make a martyr out of Kaitlyn Hunt. Any 18 year old that diddles a 14 year old is NOT a martyr, they are a predator because the 14 year old is too young to make this decision without parental input.
Despite my support for gay marriage, equality, and understanding I am now going to duck and wait for the incoming hailstorm from the "we are always right and everyone else is always wrong" crowd.
