    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Although I think that in some cases, an individual can surpass expectations at a specific age or be not up to par to expectations, I think that 18 is a good age. At least the kid has had a chance to finish school for God's sake.

    There is no spin. I'm just trying to get you to understand that there are different "levels" of sexual deviance when it involves children. IOW, those who are specifically targeting teens are placed in a different category than those who would target prepubescent children.

    Re: Elmo the Pedophile

    Let's look at this from a common sense perspective. Go search teen automobile accidents, teen pregnancies, and other teen-related incidents, and you will see that they most certainly for the most part do NOT conduct themselves as MOST adults do (again, there are always exceptions ).

    It is MUCH easier for, say an adult male to coerce or manipulate a 16-year-old child than it would be an 18 or 20-year-old in general. The brain does develop rapidly, but there should be a more uniform age of consent when it comes to adults and teens.

    All of these things about the brain functions of teenagers are pretty new discoveries. We are learning new things all the time. The newest studies and data have discovered that teenage brains are NOT fully developed yet, hence the reason why they are a lot of times careless and have no fear, and why they bully and show little empathy towards others. It all makes perfect sense IMO.

    Re: Elmo the Pedophile

    If (IF) its proven true, then anyone that can justify a 45 year old engaging in a sexual relationship with a 16 year old...well...you have a ****ed up perspective in my book. And if so at 16, then why not 13? Why not 12?

    As for when someone becomes an 'adult'...well...thats all very relative, isnt it? Based on any number of factors the brain fully develops at 21/22 for women and 25/26 for men. For insurance purposes we have decided 'children' cant be responsible for their own health care til they are 26. Bill Clinton classified 'children' as anyone up to the age of 25 for his gun statistics. 18 is generally considered an 'adult' for the ability to make choices independent of their parents. So...it obvious varies. Still...if you think a 16 year old is playing on the same intellectual and emotional plane as a 45 year old...

    Re: Elmo the Pedophile

    I just have to make one more point on this topic. A 16-year-old is most certainly still a child for another reason in that the parents are going to be directly affected, financially, emotionally, etc., whenever something happens to that child. If that child gets pregnant, the parents will be responsible for not only the pregnant child, but also the new baby.

    Unless you support throwing your 16-year-old out of the house and letting he or she fend for themselves in the world, then YES they are still children and dependent upon their parents for survival. One of many reasons why a 16-year-old is still a child.

    Well I'm not saying its ok if he actually did and it would be weird that someone came out and said he did 7 years later anyways. What I am saying is a 16 year old kills a guy we don't try them as minors now do we?

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and thats crazy." -Reagan

    We should though, given what we know now. Kids would be the MOST likely candidates for rehabilitation.
