Elite Model Management’s founder, the late John Casablancas, has also been accused of repeatedly engaging in abusive and exploitative sexual conduct, announcing, for example, that he was dating a 16-year-old model.
Yes, rape happens and it shouldn’t. Find those who do and the no key treatment and the like. Yes, abuse of power, shouldn’t happen and all that.
However. We also have those laws running the other way. The age of consent is exactly that, the age at which we, as a society, say that someone is old enough to decide for themselves who they bump uglies with. 16 is also old enough to decide upon an abortion, there are those who insist that’s old enough to vote.
So, why is it taken as absolute proof that a 16 year old bumping uglies is abuse?
