chief wants review of consent age; The Sunday Times November 26, 2006
ONE of the country's most senior police officers has called for a debate on
lowering the age of consent, suggesting that it could be reduced to bring
Scotland in line with other countries.
Chief superintendent Clive Murray, president of the Association of Scottish
Police Superintendents (ASPS), fears some children are being unfairly
criminalised by current legislation which does not differentiate between
"youthful natural instinct" and sexual abuse.

Other than a mentor as noted below, neither a boy's parents or other adults, his

As one man with a keen interest in boys observed about Toronto in 1898:
`You can scarcely walk a block without your attention being drawn to one or more
of the class called street boys.' C.S. Clark went on to describe Toronto's
street boys: `Some of the boys live at home, but the majority are wanderers in
the streets, selling papers generally, and sometimes forced to beg in the summer
time they can live out all night, but in the winter they are obliged to
patronize the cheap lodging houses ... Their ages run from ten to sixteen years
... They are generally sharp, shrewd lads with any number of bad habits and
little or no principles ... Some of the larger boys spend a considerable portion
of their earnings for tobacco and drink, and they patronize all the theatres.'

The family's horror story began in May 2004. An 11-year-old boy was invited to
play with the children in the paddling pool and he and Buffy [daughter] were
sent to change out of their swimming gear and into their bed clothes. But when
Tim [the father] went upstairs, he found the boy, minus his pyjama bottoms, on
top of his five-year-old daughter whose nightie was lifted above her
"I was so furious I called the police," says Tim [...]. The cops were
followed by social services. And there began the chain of events that ripped the
family to pieces.

McHarry, Mark, Sex
Predator Laws, A powerful new tool for state control; Z
Magazine, November 2001
The child-sex witch hunts of the 1980s, with their sensational allegations
of human and animal sacrifice, satanic rituals and international sex rings,
have faded from public consciousness. The circus-like prosecutions such as
California's McMartin preschool and Massachusetts' Fells Acres day care
center have been discredited, but they have left an odious legacy: sweeping
new laws that cut deeply into what had been bedrock civil liberties.
The most draconian of these is the sexually violent predator laws.
Conduct which 40 years ago might have earned a slap on the wrist now brings
a life sentence in a maximum-security mental institution. But to far graver
effect, the laws and the courts' opinions supporting them give states a new
legal mechanism to lock up many more people than just predators.
McHarry, Mark, Las
leyes contra los depredadores sexuales, Un nuevo y poderoso instrumento
para el control estatal; Z Magazine, November 2001
[N. Del T.] En la legislación norteamericana se usa el término depredador
para referirse a los criminales violentos, incorregibles; una traducción más
ajustada sería criminales sexuales violentos pero, dada la referencia
constante a este término en el texto, he preferido mantenerlo.
Las cacerías de brujas de la década de los años 80, con sus alegatos
sensacionalistas de sacrificios humanos y animales, rituales satánicos y
redes clandestinas internacionales de sexo con menores, han ido
desapareciendo de la conciencia pública. Los procesos contra el centro
preescolar McMartin y la guardería infantil Fells Acres (más parecidos a
un circo que a un proceso jurídico) han sido desacreditados, pero han
dejado una herencia odiosa: una nueva legislación que disminuye
profundamente libertades civiles hasta ahora consideradas fundamentales.
Lo peor de todo son las leyes contra los depredadores sexuales. Una conducta
que hace 40 años podía acabar en una sentencia suave concluye ahora en una
sentencia de cadena perpetua dentro de una institución de salud mental de
alta seguridad. Pero, lo que es más grave aún, las leyes y las opiniones
de los jueces confirmándolas dan a los estados un nuevo mecanismo legal
para encarcelar a mucha más gente que a los depredadores.

Revolution and the Liberation of Children: An Interview With Kate
A sexual revolution begins with the emancipation of women, who are the
chief victims of patriarchy, and also with ending of homosexual oppression.
Part of the patriarchal family structure involves the control of the sexual
life of children; indeed, the control of children totally. Children have
virtually no rights guaranteed by law in our society and besides, they have
no money which, in a money economy, is one of the most important sources of
their oppression. Certainly, one of children's essential rights is to
express themselves sexually, probably primarily with each other but with
adults as well. So the sexual freedom of children is an important part of a

month that Oscar Wilde threw off his own mortal coils in that same country. Both
were inveterate gossipers, raconteurs, and poseurs. Men of noted sartorial
elegance, adherents of the good life, they strutted the streets and the salons
of respectable society, firing fusillades of sometimes dubious taste and
egotistical bon mots (Oscar
declared nothing but his genius; Roger claimed he was one of only two true
humanists left in France). They were both bisexuals who advocated passionate
romantic relationships between older and younger males, while often pursuing
their partners in the gutter - and getting caught.

"Shame," he said, "is looking at yourself as scum." It's a negative emotion that, in Park's opinion, actually increases the risk of re-offense.
