Sadly, certain acts of pedophilia are already legal in the state of California.
As it turns out, if the victim of heterosexual statutory rape is 14-17 years old, and if the boyfriend/girlfriend is within a less than 10-year age window, then the presiding judge has the discretion to not have the perpetrator registered as a sex offender.
However, what many are calling the “Sex Offender Freedom Act”, State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-SF) has introduced Senate Bill 145, which would give homosexuals parity with the heterosexual statutory rapists. I guess in California, two wrongs do make a right.
As noted by the pro-traditional family news site California Catholic Daily (emphasis mine);
Currently in California, if an adult (age 18 or over) has heterosexual relations with a teenager (age 14-17) and the age difference between them is less than 10 years, then the adult is not required to be a registered sex offender. But if the adult has homosexual relations with a teenager, then he is required to be registered as a sex offender. This rightfully recognizes the depraved and destructive character of homosexual sex (both physical and mental) and how it affects a child much more profoundly.
This disparity has long angered the homosexual movement, which has always been obsessed with getting access to young teenagers – and with being seen as normal.
SB 145 would eliminate that distinction for homosexual sex. Thus, adult homosexuals could prey on young teenagers sexually – as happens so much – and not be considered sex offenders. Many people have called it the “Sex Offender Freedom” Act.
Openly “gay” State Sen. Scott Wiener introduced SB 145. Wiener represents one of the most LGBT districts in the country: the entire city and county of San Francisco, CA. He is one of the most vocal members of California’s LGBT Legislative Caucus and aggressively pushes “groundbreaking” LGBT legislation….
Also cited by the good folks at California Catholic;
As expected, SB 145 sailed through three Senate committees. On May 28, 2019 it passed the full Senate 25-3….
On July 10, it was approved by the Assembly’s Public Service Committee and was sent to the Appropriations Committee, where it basically ground to a halt. There was a committee hearing set for August 30, 2019 that was postponed. Nothing further has happened with it.
Right now, during the continued COVID-19 situation, the California Legislature is moving at pretty much a snail’s pace. And constitutionally, the entire session must end for good on August 31, 2020….
Speaking of Mr Wiener, he’s playing the victim of online death threats.
He’s taken screenshots of angry tweets from those he’s labeled as “QAnon/anti-vax right.”
Thread: This week, I’ve been the target of violent, homophobic, antisemitic attacks from the QAnon/anti-vax right, including death threats (screenshots below). All b/c I’m authoring SB 145 to end discrimination against LGBTQ youth on sex offender registry. https://t.co/Yvq0n0JQlc
