DO REASON.COM "LIBERTARIAN" EDITORS SUPPORT RAPE AND MOLESTATION OF TEENS AND YOUNGER-THAN-TEENS?

Living is serious. Perhaps many should awaken to reality.

On August 22, 2014, Reason.com published a piece by Jacob Sullum in which Sullum laments that legislators of the State of New York have  imposed residence restrictions against those convicted of heinous sex crimes, which Sullum believes are "so onerous that sex offenders due to be released from prison cannot find legal places to live."



The egregious crimes of child molestation and rape deform anyone for a lifetime, creating perpetual victims of those who suffer such reprehensible crimes. Even though USSC robe Anthony Kennedy says otherwise, sex crimes have life-long effects that victims suffer. Unlike those raped, those murdered escape suffering.

If only those creepy pervs hadn't molested children, likely the most heinous crime known to man, well, maybe the creepy pervs wouldn't have it so tough. As it is, there are many Americans who would prefer sex crime convicts remain in prison for life or merely get executed. Sometimes, bad people need to live with the consequences of being bad people.


Sullum laments,

Under New York's Sexual Assault Reform Act, which took effect in 2005, level-three sex offenders and all sex offenders whose victims were younger than 18 are prohibited from going within 1,000 feet of a school or any other facility that mainly serves children...That means sex offenders not only are not allowed to live in Manhattan; they are not even allowed to visit or pass through it, unless they can somehow do so without running afoul of the 1,000-foot rule.
According to New York law, a Level 3 convicted sex criminal gets deemed a high-risk of repeat offense and thus a threat. Level 3 convicts of sex crimes have been deemed the seriously wicked, mentally twisted. Thus, New York legislators have decreed through law and agency such heinous persons have the duty to maintain lifetime registry and that legislators and their agents have the right to know where Level 3 sex offenders live.

Facts remain. Legislators of the State of New York have deemed capacity to decide having sex at 17 and have deemed no one has authority to decide sexual matters for anyone. That is why parents can't peddle out their daughters for sex in pursuit of accrued favors or cash.

The age of consent in New York is 17. Anyone 18 or older becomes a rapist upon conviction in New York for having sex with someone lacking capacity to consent.

If someone is 16 or 17, and has sex with anyone lacking capacity, that is anyone under 17, that one is liable for sexual misconduct, a misdemeanor.

Having reached the age of majority in New York, 18, anyone becomes liable for various degrees of rape, all felonies:

  • 3rd degree rape if rapist is 21 or older and the victim is 16 or 15
  • 2nd degree rape if rapist is 18 or older and the victim is 14 or 13
  • 1st degree rape if rapist is 18 or older and the victim is 12 or younger
  • 1st degree rape if rapist is 16 or older and the victim is 10 or younger

Laws impose duty and right. New Yorkers have the right not to be raped or molested. Adults have the duty not to molest or rape anyone. Legislators have conferred the right of prosecution against anyone not upholding their duty. Legislators have imposed the duty of liability to their right of prosecution for those suspected of failing to uphold their duty.

Anyone with good sense would see all of these laws as reasonable. Apparently, those at Reason.com do not believe that luring a child, forcible touching of a child, incest with a child, raping a child, or sodomy of a child is all that bad. Perhaps, those at Reason.com see such vile, heinous acts as merely poor decisions made during weaker moments of younger days of adulthood.

You can read through apologist work by yet another Reasonoid cult handler, Lenore Skenazy , I Saw a Man Get Arrested For a Sex Crime Because He Made a Scheduling ErrorIn the work, Skenazy decries that legislators of Texas require Joshua Gravens to register a sex offender because Gravens fingered his sister's vagina more than once when his victim was merely eight.

Skenazy describes Gravens as a "super-articulate" man, which hardly could be the description of someone whose intellect is so hampered as  not to have known he was wrong to molest his sister when he was 12.

What is next for Reasonoids? Are they going to come out their closets to support NAMBLA under a bogus free association argument?





You can glance at the age of consent laws of the various states, none of which seem unreasonable.





On a side note, 42% of all millionaires living in New York state live in the Manhattan borough of New York City. It looks like Manhattan millionaires have bought the legislators they needed to keep heinous child molesters out of Manhattan.

Here are a few of my takes on the progressive liberals masquerading libertarians at Reason.com:




One last note, because of my comments written in response to Reasonoid cultie handler Shikha Dalmia's recent Reason.com article on Millennials and legal pot, detailing how legalization isn't decriminalization and thus legalization, which Reason.com handlers champion, isn't libertarian, I've been censored at Reason.com

All of my comments on countless articles have been removed by the technical staff at Reason.com while comments remain by scores of others on those same articles.

So much for the "free minds" slogan Reasonoids at Reason.com peddle.

Reasonoids at Reason.com give libertarianism a bad rep. In short, they don't understand the doctrine at all and thus are not adherents to it. The closet from which Reasonoids should emerge is the Rockefeller Republican / (Bill) Clinton New Democrat closet in which they hide while masquerading as libertarians.

I might have more to say about my blacklisted censorship at Reason.com soon.
