One of the weird tics of the modern age is that we say, “Women are equal to men! They can do anything a man can do! There’s no difference,” and then when it comes to sex, we treat women like they’re not autonomous beings with a will of their own. On college campuses if a man and a woman are both drinking and have sex, it’s the man that can be accused of rape. When a male teacher has sex with a student, we quite correctly demand that the book be thrown at him, but when a woman does it, it usually gets shrugged off and she gets no jail time. Then there’s this,
A mum who claimed she had sexual relations with her 15-year-old son because he seduced her has avoided jail.
The 50-year-old woman, who cannot be named, was told by a judge she had “clearly breached her obligation as a mother” as she was handed the suspended sentence.
Gloucester Crown Court heard how the woman went along with the teenager’s demands out of motherly love as she pleaded guilty to three charges of sexual activity with the boy.
