Peter Tatchell: Got Up Jailhouse Lawyer's Nose

John Hirst has this following the Tatchell interview substitued for the missing Mike Read's Mayoral Interview on 18 Doughty Street last week.

Peter Tatchell is I fear being rather misrepresented. What he was saying surely - and it was clear enough - was that 14 year olds in some countries and of all genders and preferences are legally allowed or practically tolerated HAVING SEX with one another with a narrow band of similar age. NOT Tatchell screwing 14-year-old boys. 14-year-old boys and girls screwing other 14-year-old boys and girls.

There is a huge difference between that proposal which is de facto law anyway and the smear being presented for the prosecution.

You may not agree with freedom for 14-year-olds in this regard, or perhaps you do. But that's another question.
