I believe wholeheartedly that all sentient, sapient beings should be treated equally, regardless of race, gender, what have you. I didn’t choose to be born a white male, but given the ever increasing tendency towards “positive discrimination” in “most Western countries,” I really honestly wish I had been born anything but.
I always find it interesting how misleading someone about your vocation, services you can offer someone, monetary incentives etc. in order to obtain sex is viewed in a negative fashion in "most Western countries." Especially when misleading someone about an offer of sex in order to obtain any of the above is considered a perfectly normal and acceptable practice. (Ask any of your geekier IT mates if they’ve been led around by some tart in order to get access to their expertise.)
The man in this article is accused of taking advantage of a “poor innocent young girl.” I don’t know the specifics of the case, but I’ve been on the opposite side of that more than enough to have any sympathy hollowed out. All too often some “poor innocent guy” is led around by his hormones…and it’s not until we’re older and wiser that we know enough to avoid it. To this young lady, as traumatic as the experience might have been for her I can only say that the world is harsh...and caveat emptor.
