I don’t know how many times I have to say this; I think I’m about to pop a blood vessel in my head.
Right now, there are two instances in the news where an adult woman has “Sexually Assaulted” a teenage boy: former Tennessee Titans cheerleader Elizabeth Leigh Garner, and teaching assistant Katheryn L. Carmean.
I will break this down one last time: when it comes to an adult woman having sex with a teenage boy, there are two ways for it to fall…
Elizabeth Leigh Garner + Young Boy = NOT sexual assault
(Could even be argued “Winning the lottery”)
Katheryn L. Carmean + Young boy = ABSOLUTELY sexual assault
(She should have to pay for his lifetime of therapy)
To say these two cases are even remotely similar would be like every windy day is a hurricane. It’s lazy journalism, and we should demand better.
(Anyone that tries to come back with “What about an adult man and a teenage girl,” just stop it. Just… stop.)
