I was clearly being insensitive with this posting from yesterday. I didn’t mean to come off that way and I apologize for it.
The situation in that posting was that young teenage girls were duped into having sex with an older man. He worked his way into their lives and used tarot cards to influence them into letting him do what he wanted with them.
The thread among the comments is that all the blame should be on the old man. The young girls were taken advantage of, and even through they willingly did stuff with the man (as opposed to being forced to do it), they shouldn’t be blamed for not having the experience or judgment to know any better. Fair enough.
Let me suggest a slightly different scenario.
Same story. Man dupes women into having sex with him using Tarot cards. But this time, the victims are all 24-years-old.
The old man is still a monster, no doubt. Again, I’m not letting him off the hook by any means. He deserves to be locked away for a long time.
But in this case, how much culpability can be placed on the women?
