Re: The Girl Who Pretended to be Three Boys to Bed Her Girl Friends

She obviously has issues with gender. This girl needs psychological support, not prison. And the "victims" did agree for sex, what makes people think there would be a right to sue people for gender deception? They were free to choose and make decisions, so they must be proud of their independence instead of being made victims and infantilized. To me, that sounds like pure homophobic "it'd be ok if it was heterosexual, but it was actually gay even if I agreed with it, so let's put the gay in prison" case. I find many comments shockingly judgmental.

Historically, rape by deception has always been regarded as still rape. Like a man who turns the lights out and gets into bed with hs brother's wife. She may well 'consent', but no court would view it as a valid defence.

As for psychological support - well yes, but that's true with pretty much all sex offenders anyway - would you suggest that a psychotic multiple rapist not be imprisoned 'cos it's not really his fault?

I must admit that I have no idea about English legal tradition. It's not about sneaking an unknown person but about gender and sexual identity of the one an only person that they went in bed with. I am shocked at such a process as a continental. Cultural differences work both ways.

And no, she doesn't need psychological support because she is a sex offender but as herself as such, a human being with gender issues. If that's rape, then the cultural gap between London and myself is even bigger than I thought. That's my problem, you don't have to care, I admit that.

Yes.

If you lied about your profession before sex, would you go to prison for it.
If you lied about your name?
Your date of birth?
So why should your gender be any different?

If the person is that easy to fool, well ... then they were easy to fool.

Isn't this an almost perfect repeat of the "Boys don't cry" movie plot - itself based on a true story ?

Re: The Girl Who Pretended to be Three Boys to Bed Her Girl Friends

As I said in my previous post, one of the victims was 15 so below the age of consent. Add to that the admission of guilt by the offender and that's how you end up in the slammer for 30 months.

I'm not a legal expert, but regardless of her gender she would have been sent down for sexually assaulting a minor whether consent was given or not is not being questioned here.

Taken from Wikipedia:
As a consequence, certain traditions stated that popes throughout the medieval period were required to undergo a procedure wherein they sat on a special chair with a hole in the seat. A cardinal would have the task of putting his hand up the hole to check whether the pope had testicles, or doing a visual examination.[citation needed] This procedure is not taken seriously by most historians, and there is no documented instance. It is probably a scurrilous legend based on the existence of two ancient stone chairs with holes in the seats that probably dated from Roman times and may have been used because of their ancient imperial origins. Their original purpose is obscure

Well, whatever her problems may be, I'm certain they will all be solved by having her "chilling story" publicised on primetime national TV.

If you don't notice then.... well, you would notice, I'm pretty sure. Anyway, payment in advance would normally be taken as a sign of consent, I imagine.
