LGBT community backs 18 yr old lesbian arrested for having sex with girl, 14

It doesn't matter whether the 18 year old woman arrested for having sex with a 14 year old teammate from her basketball squad is a lesbian or stratight.

That is not the issue. What matters is the law and the nauseating double standard of most of the LGBT community (as well as the ACLU) who believe that Kate Hunt is being prosecuted because she's a lesbian, and not because she broke the statutory rape law.

Significantly, there are some in the LGBT community who can't stomach the double standard any more than we can:

A Florida gay group pushed back against the notion that the arrest of Kate Hunt, the 18-year-old lesbian charged with having sex with an underage female student, is a gay rights issue.

"We have not been able to find where the charges brought against this unfortunate young lady are inspired by homophobia, or are in any way anti-LGBTQ," wrote David McKinnon, president of the Vero Beach, Florida chapter of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, in a statement.

Hunt admitted to having a sexual relationship with her 14-year-old girlfriend. The two girls attended the same high school and were on the basketball team together.

[...]

McKinnon noted that there was no question about whether Hunt broke the law, and that numerous heterosexuals have been arrested under similar circumstances.

"The cry of discrimination, unless more facts come out, does not seem to apply here," he wrote.

Two members of an unnamed area gay advocacy group told local media they resigned their positions after they refused to take a pro-Hunt stance.

"I'm gay, and I don't side with Kate," said one activist, who spoke to local media anonymously due to his concerns that the Free Kate movement would retaliate against him and his partner.

Still, Hunt's supporters appear to greatly outnumber her detractors. The Free Kate Facebook page has over 50,000 members. One supporter, Brad Filippone, wrote that he saw Hunt's struggle as analogous to those of civil rights giant Rosa Parks.

"Maybe decades from now, Kaitlyn will be mentioned in the same breath as Rosa Parks," he wrote on the group's Facebook wall.

In media appearances and interviews, Hunt's parents have touted her as a victim of anti-gay bigotry.

Some national groups that favor gay rights, including the American Civil Liberties Union have rallied behind Hunt.
What is the ACLU's position? Perhaps the most nauseating of all:
"The facts as we understand them suggest that the state is prosecuting Kaitlyn for engaging in behavior that is both fairly innocuous and extremely common."
Well, lesbian sex itself is not "extremely common" by any objective standard and as far as being "innocuous," what does that have to do with violating the law? Hunt's parents should be ashamed of themselves. If their daughter was the 14 year old in this scennario, one wonders if they would see the 18 year old rapist as a "victim."

Indeed, any parent reading this would go absolutely ballistic if their 14 year old daughter had sex with an 18 year old man.

What is truly remarkable is that the LGBT activists can't detect the raging hypocrisy of their position. Rape is rape, and if it's only rape when a heterosexual does it, what does that say about the values of those who back this 18 year old predator?
