Just lately, we have been hearing a lot of talk from so called experts about lowering the age of consent.
So, lets call a Nonce a Nonce.
Because, lets face it. Anyone who wants the age of consent lowered has to be a nonce.
And here’s why.
There simply is no need to lower the age of consent.
Therefore, the one and only reason anyone can be in favour of lowering the age of consent is because those people in favour of doing so must be dirty, perverted, warped sick fucks who want to specifically fuck children.
And here’s why.
There is already an unwritten policy in place in this country where anyone aged 19 or under (sometimes even a year or two older at a push, depending on circumstances) is immune from prosecution when having a sexual relationship with a girl who is 15 yrs old and in most cases even 14 yrs old.
I do not know if the same immunity applies for a 19 yr old girl and 15 yr old boy because, those kind of relationships rarely, rarely happen.
Having said that, I lost my virginity at 15 yrs old to an 18 yr old, but only because I was desperate to lose my virginity and the 18 yr old was well known for shagging anyone due mainly to her being up for mostly anything – not just sex – as well as looking like the back end of a bus.
There certainly wasn’t a relationship between us, in fact I only ever remember speaking briefly to her on a couple of more occasions once we had done the do.
The deed happened over Hockley woods, in pitch dark, with us both wearing clothes and if I’m honest I don’t think she enjoyed it much. Then again, I didn’t have a step ladder handy to allow myself a good mount.
I can however remember her name as clear as crystal… Unfortunately, I can also remember what she looked like too. However, I will always be grateful to her.
And, at no time ever did I think, or my friends think, or her friends think, that she was a paedophile and/or that I had been taken advantage of… You just don’t think like that at that age.
In fact, if anyone took advantage it was me taking advantage of her. You see, as a general rule, no self respecting 19 yr old girl will go out with a 15 yr old school boy. but that is by the by.
So, getting back to it… What do you mean ‘you fucking wish I would’? … Wankers!
So getting back to it… Hmmmm… this immunity from prosecution, applies to 19 or 20 yr old boys having sex with girls aged 14 or 15.
A typical case is my daughters friend who is 15 yrs old and has just had a baby by an 18 (very nearly 19) yr old. This means that she was having sex with him when she was 14 yrs old and he was 17, or even 18 yrs old.
They are living at her Nans as man and wife with the full knowledge of the social services, community midwife and their many hundreds if not 1000’s of friends on Facebook and Twitter, etc, etc.
Their relationship is far from unique and no one appears to allege that he is a paedophile or even bat an eyelid. When you see their photo they look well suited I suppose and to be honest I’m more disgusted that they have a baby, when they are only kids themselves.
At the moment they are loved up – or think they are – but we all know that the chances of them being together in 5 yrs time is slim to none.
In other words, they are of a similar age and share the same interests and way of thinking. Its a transition period if you like.
Therefore, the age of consent does not need to be lowered for the country’s teenagers benefit, because teenage boys don’t get in trouble for having sex with under age girls who are over 14 anyway.
When a fella gets to 21 and over, they tend to date girls a year or two younger than themselves or girls of their own age.
There are many reasons for this, but mainly because their mates would taunt them mercilessly for going out with a schoolgirl. Tease them non stop that they are a paedophile, plus nine times out of ten they are scared shit-less of the schoolgirls old man and as a general rule, they just don’t want to go out with a ‘kid’ so it just doesn’t happen.
That isnt to say it never happens but once you are over 21 you cannot blame the folly of youth. Therefore, the few fellas in their twenty’s who do date under age girls are inevitably, specifically targeting little girls and the age of consent means nothing to them what ever that age barrier may be.
As such, they will always target little girls and deserve a severe punishment for doing so.
Therefore, you won’t find many 20 somethings bothered about the lowering of the age of consent. With that being the case, lowering the consent age wouldn’t be for their benefit either.
So, the only people who could possibly be in favour of lowering the age limit is older people wanting to have sex with children.
And basically, no matter how you dress it up, that is what the Barrister Barbara Hewson is advocating.
Course, there is always the danger that once you lower the age of consent to 13 or even 14 years old, in a few years time you could well have a situation where boys of 16 or 17 are having sex with girls aged 11 or 12 but falling into that immunity from prosecution grey area.
So what then?
Lower the age of consent to 10 or 11 years old?
Barbara Hewson! You are either a vile disgusting, sexual deviant. Or totally fucking crackers… Fuck off you disgusting whore.
Age of consent should be lowered to 13 to stop persecution of old men and sex assault victims SHOULDN’T get anonymity, says leading barrister
- Barbara Hewson is a barrister at Hardwicke chambers in London
- She described Operation Yewtree arrests as a ‘grotesque spectacle’
- Claimed disgraced Stuart Hall’s crimes were ‘low level misdemeanors’
- NSPCC said her ‘outdated and simply ill-informed’ views ‘beggars belief’

The age of consent for sex should be lowered to 13-years-old in a bid to end the ‘persecution of old men’ in the wake of the Savile sex abuse scandal, a top female barrister has argued.
Lawyer Barbara Hewson described the arrests of celebrities such as Rolf Harris, Dave Lee Travis, Jim Davidson and PR guru Max Clifford under Operation Yewtree as a ‘grotesque spectacle’ adding it had ‘nothing to do with justice or the public interest’.
Ms Hewson, a barrister at Hardwicke chambers in London, described the crimes committed by disgraced broadcaster Stuart Hall as ‘low level misdemeanours’ which would not normally be prosecuted.
In an article for online magazine Spiked, Ms Hewson, who specialises in reproductive rights, also calls for the end of anonymity for complainants.
Children’s charity the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) said to hear such ‘outdated and simply ill-informed’ views from a highly-experienced barrister ‘beggars belief’.
Her comments come as Scotland Yard runs Operation Yewtree, an investigation split into three inquiries into allegations involving deceased presenter Jimmy Savile, involving Savile and others and those involving just others.
A number of high-profile figures have been arrested under Yewtree such as entertainer Rolf Harris, former pop star Gary Glitter, DJ Dave Lee Travis, comedian Jim Davidson and PR guru Max Clifford. All deny any wrongdoing.
Ms Hewson argues that ‘the post-Savile witch-hunting of ageing celebs echoes the Soviet Union’ and says that it is not difficult to see why some elderly defendants ‘conclude that resistance is useless’.
She adds: ‘But the low-level misdemeanours with which Stuart Hall was charged are nothing like serious crime.’
Ms Hewson continues: ‘Ordinarily, Hall’s misdemeanours would not be prosecuted, and certainly not decades after the event.
‘What we have here is the manipulation of the British criminal-justice system to produce scapegoats on demand. It is a grotesque spectacle.’

She continues: ‘It’s time to end this prurient charade, which has nothing to do with justice or the public interest.’
The barrister adds: ‘Instead, we should focus on arming today’s youngsters with the savoir-faire and social skills to avoid drifting into compromising situations, and prosecute modern crime.
‘As for law reform, now regrettably necessary, my recommendations are remove complainant anonymity, introduce a strict statute of limitations for criminal prosecutions and civil actions and reduce the age of consent to 13.’
Ms Hewson argues that ‘touching a 17-year-old’s breast, kissing a 13-year-old, or putting one’s hand up a 16-year-old’s skirt’ are not comparable to cases such as the Ealing Vicarage rape or Fordingbridge gang rape and murders from 1986.
She adds: “Anyone suggesting otherwise has lost touch with reality.’
And Ms Hewson labels charities like the NSPCC and the National Association for People Abused in Childhood (Napac) as “moral crusaders’ who have infiltrated Yewtree.
Peter Watt, director of the NSPCC helpline, said: “These outdated and simply ill-informed views would be shocking to hear from anyone but to hear them from a highly experienced barrister simply beggars belief.
‘Stuart Hall has pleaded guilty to abusing children as young as nine years old, we think most people would agree that crimes of this nature are incredibly serious. Thankfully the law, and most people, are very clear on this matter.
‘To minimise and trivialise the impact of these offences for victims in this way is all but denying that they have in fact suffered abuse at all. Any suggestion of lowering the age of consent could put more young people at risk from those who prey on vulnerable young people.
‘And we must strongly defend the right for victims to remain anonymous and to ask for justice no matter when they choose to come forward.
‘Many who are abused are bullied, blackmailed and shamed into staying silent, often well into adulthood. We must always be prepared to act no matter how long ago the abuse occurred.
‘The actions of those who speak out also protect others from abuse and give confidence to other victims to come forward.’
Ms Hewson is regularly ranked as a Leading Junior by The Legal 500 in the fields of public and administrative law, human rights and civil liberties, and professional discipline and regulatory law, according to her chambers’ website.
She has won cases in the European Court of Human Rights, the Supreme Court and High Court of the Republic of Ireland.
