    This is very confusing, at least for someone like me who wasn't raised in North America. According to the news the lady was 17, so why are people calling her a child?
    She isn't a child according to this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_o..._North_America
    Or is this article wrong?

      And all because of IBM, Red Hat and Microsoft!!!!!1!

        Each state has different laws.

        I wasn't raised in the USA either, but just like in the USA, in my country it's common to define anyone under the age of 18 as a child.

              What rapist and what victim are we talking about here? From the subject it would seem the supposed rapist would be Minsky and the supposed victim would be Virginia Giuffre. The problem with that is neigher does Ms. Giuffre claim to have had sex with Mr. Minsky (I've been searching and I can't find any transcript where she says that). And we have a witness saying that Mr. Minsky turned Ms. Giuffre down when she propositioned him.

                He F'ed up. That's not how Libertarianism works. Freedom + "Responsibility" does not apply to kids of any mammalian species.
                I think you right..
                A big lack of Experience or Society Bounder Limits in a Juvenile, prevent him from acquire several Limits and/or Responsibilities..
                I don't find a reason for him, to say otherwise..

                But I don't think that MIT/Harvard guys are innocent( because they took his words as something granted.. ), they are adults,
                And so, they are subjected to the Bounder Limits of our Society..

                  I haven't been following Stallman closely, but my tinfoil hat senses are tingling. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this is just a scheduled meltdown ordered by some organization (whatever strikes your fancy) to get him to step down because of a "plausible" reason.

                  Because it makes the argument more polarizing I guess. A 17 yo is a teenager, or a "minor". Calling that a "child" is pushing it.

                  More seriously, whoever thinks discussing underage sex in any context, in the current times is a moron and deserves to be burned at the stake by frenzied SJWs.

                  That's one of the main topics that TRIGGERS that kind of idiots, among with animal abuse and having any opinion about LGBTQ (non-straight) people.

                    Are you saying stuff got blown out of proportion by Facebook moms and other parties without any kind of proof of their accusations?

                    Shocked. I'm shocked, I tell you.

                      Maybe someone should say this just so it is said: To call it "rape" when a couple of 17 and 19 have sex together is not only completely moronic but more than a slap in the face of every person who has actually suffered this unspeakable life destroying crime and then asks themselves because of this comparison if people are actually taking their incredible suffering serious when they mix it into one pot with completely different things that are worlds apart. People who use that word in any other context other that that actual crime are just disgusting!
