Female MRA argues that the real abusers in the BBC pedo scandals were the underage girls

Jimmy Saville: The real victim? (Uh, no.)
Jimmy Savile: The real victim? (Uh, no.)

British barrister Barbara Hewson caused a bit of a stir last week when she called for the age of consent in Britain to be lowered to 13 so as to end the alleged “persecution of old men” like those arrested in the wake of the recent Jimmy Savile scandal, which revealed a widespread culture of sexual exploitation of underage girls (and some boys) at the BBC in the 1970s.

Now one female Men’s Rights Activist connected to hate site A Voice for Men has done Hewson one better, arguing that the real culprits in these scandals weren’t the predatory adult men but the girls they victimized.

Janet Bloomfield, a fairly regular contributor to terrorist-manifesto-posting AVFM who is better known as JudgyBitch, writes on her blog that:

[B]asically, the girls were groupies. They wanted all the benefits of hanging out with a big star and they understood it came with a price and they paid it, perhaps reluctantly, but with full knowledge that the trips to London and the fags and the sweet weren’t free. …

And now they are claiming the MEN abused THEM? Looks to me like it was the other way around.

Yes, Bloomfield apparently feels that these poor little rich men were robbed of cigarettes and candy and trips to London by predatory teenage girls. She continues:

It’s a story as old as bloody time. Young women with nothing to offer but their youth and sexuality chase after powerful men in exchange for favors. If we are going to arrest every powerful man who has ever availed himself of willing women, we are gonna need to build a whole lot of jails.

Uh, Judgy, in case you missed the point of the whole debate here, we’re not talking about women. We’re talking about girls. In the case of  BBC broadcaster Stuart Hall, one of the victims that he has admitted to assaulting was nine years old at the time. Nine. Savile’s youngest alleged victim was an eight-year-old boy, and dozens of his alleged assaults were upon children in hospitals.

In the end, Bloomfield kind of, sort of, admits that the men may have behaved badly in these cases. But she still wants them to face zero legal repercussions.

Powerful men always have and always will delight in young women hunting them. Young women always have and always will hunt for powerful men. Both sides are equally culpable. Both sides are engaging in abuse. Both sides are behaving shamefully. Both side are being idiots.

But only one side is being held criminally responsible? Bullshit. If the girls are not going to be strung up on charges of solicitation and prostitution, and I absolutely do NOT think they should be, then fairness and equality under the law dictates the men get a pass, too.

Again, you may notice, Bloomfield cannot seem to decide whether or not these girls are in fact girls or “young women,” and in the two consecutive paragraphs right above you’ll notice she slides effortlessly between the two. Perhaps her desire to tag these girls “women” is an admission that, at least on some unconscious level, she knows what she’s arguing is beyond the moral pale.

Elsewhere in her post, she puts up pictures of underage girls whom she seems to think would be impossible to distinguish from adults. Here’s one, of a twelve-year-old model. (She also includes a creepily sexualized picture of the same model at age ten.)


Anyone unable to tell that this is a picture of a child, not an adult, shouldn’t be having sex with anyone.

And anyone as morally deficient as JudgyBitch shouldn’t be judging anyone.

A little off topic, but here is some more Judgy Bitch.
She is being interviewed on the culture of slutshaming with three other (feminist) women. She goes off on a rant ~19:40 when prompted “Society shames girls, but not men, doesn’t it?”

Also, the irony of these two posts just gets me. In the first, she blames the girl in the Steubenville case for being a “dumb fucking whore” who deserved being raped because obviously she was trying to hook up with high status boys. She concludes that the girl and her rapists should have both gotten slaps on the wrist and allowed to go their merry ways.

In the next one, she talks about how her 12 year old daughter received rape threats and how she responded to them (calling the police, talking to neighbors and the school, etc). It baffles me how hypocritical she is. Apparently the only women/girls who deserve protecting from sexual assault are the ones that she arbitrarily deems as valuable.

Now I want a peach.

Cloudiah, I was just looking up peach recipes. I’ve been grilling everything I can lately, so I think I’m going to make some sauce with Kahlua, brown sugar, and orange peel, and then toss grilled peaches in it until dessert. Soon. Soon, my pretty little peaches.

Can you grill your corn? Then, you can put it in tortilla soup or make salsa with it. If not, how about some Thai corn fritters? I don’t have a recipe for those, though. I just made the ones on and they weren’t the ones of my dreams.

That’s a feature, not a bug. It means all women have to worry about every action, all the time.

re Abnoy: I’m glad I could be the focus of his foaming at the mouth enough to get banned. That he did it by completely missing the point is icing on the cake/brandy in the coffee/all sorts of lagniappe.

And JudgyBitch says:

As I’ve mentioned before, children from troubled or very poor families are integrated into regular neighborhoods in our town, rather than housed in some sort of council or ghetto.

I’ll just leave this here.

Shut your mouth; you’ll catch flies.

Pecunium – Abnoy also homed in on calling grooming “courtship” after I mentioned my father grooming a girl until she turned sixteen. Apparently “married man in his thirties grooming teenager” counts as courtship in Abnoy’s filthy world.

I did grill my corn! Yum. I didn’t find any good peaches though, so I’ll have to wait to grill those.

Thanks David. Abnoy’s just a little asshole and Rush Limbaugh groupie who wants to have sex with underage girls. So glad he lost his temper.

Some young girls advance early beyond normal years, and can be very sinister, cunning and mischievous, and mark their performers/predators with piercing precision and unmatched desire of will, perhaps, maybe. I wouldn’t know observedly. But still poor judgement, and just simple lack of class & manners predicates foul on the elder’s (whichever gender) failure to deny temptation and vice, which may be very difficult to resist, amidst endless drugs money, power, lust and debauchery, devils work no doubt. Was fun had? Annoy may want to know, I do not care to think of that as it disturbs me to estimate the consequences on the younger party(s). Open up salems lot and burn these young witches at the steak before the devil gains his foothold on our consciences.

I don’t think that yoga practice is working out so well for you, dude. Have you considered the possibility that you’re doing it wrong?

I think the yoga is working great. That’s a HUGE stretch.
