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.

You can’t prosecute someone 40 years later for something so trivial

“something so trivial”, it says.

Thanks, David – I’d just this second emailed you about his ones in the other thread, so you can ignore that email! 🙂

I am no good at ‘Name That Sock.’ Unless it’s Meller, I suppose, but his frothing rage when women (or feminists, maybe?) swear at him is pretty distinctive.

I’m always startled at how little the MRM seems to care about children–even boys. They seem to see them purely as playthings or objects for adults, not actual people with their own feelings and thoughts.

I mean, yes, they act the exact same way about women, but–

Hey. Wait a minute… it’s almost like the MRM is entirely self-motivated!

In this case I think they’re kind of hoping that none of their readers will know enough about the Saville case to realize that be abused boys too.

Did Meller ever sock? I thought he was too proud of his own creepy self to do that.

This must put a damper on feminist lies about women as perfect and men as evil. A woman endorsing child abuse- oh shit!

Trouble in paradise, ladies?

He did once! Picked a name with the exact same grammatical structure as his, too, and didn’t even try to change his rhetorical style.

I’m with Kitteh. I don’t remember DKM ever socking–I don’t remember him being banned, and he didn’t care what we thought.

Hmmm… maybe we could have a Troll Poll knowledge quiz. Pick out anonymous but representative quotes from our most prolific trolls and see how many we can match correctly.

Since JB has now completely gone over the deep end to defending pedophiles, I am sure AVfM will now make whatever moves necessary to distance themselves from her. Right? Right? [crickets]

And can I just say that this is a terrible thing to read after a long day of air travel. I just … need a shower.

RE: Evil Balls

You act like I’m a woman. And also that I think women are perfect. And also that David doesn’t have a freaking TAG all about feMRAs even though it’s used in this very post. You aren’t very observant, are you?

Evil Balls — let me guess, you think feminism is all “man bad, woman good”?

It’s totally true. I mean, you guys have been nothing but ruthless and vicious to me, Pecunium, Falconer, howardbann1ster et al since the day we walked in!

Judgybitch is too stupid to realize that AVfM is using her to push their “women are evil” agenda. I hop she gets blast of self awareness someday.

Evil Balls: what’s your point? Can you read?

Evil balls, feminists claiming that all womankind is perfect? That’s actually not a thing. But I guess you wouldn’t know, because you don’t sound like much of a reader. Your name suits you, by the way.

I hop so too. 😀 But frankly unless she has some kind of moral fiber transplant, I’m not holding my breath.

Evil Balls, oh do fuck off. Thanks.

I can’t believe we all had to address that poster formally as Evil Balls. It sounds like a villain from the Austin Powers movie franchise.

You’ll accept men who will prostrate themselves for their original sins, and ask forgiveness for being men. I’m not willing to do that. I didn’t ask to be born.

Evil Balls, nothing you say bears any relation to anything anyone has said here.

So again, fuck right off, you malevolent pustule.

Oooh, you’re so naughty and edgy. I’m thrilled. Please, tell me more about what kind of man I am; this is better than an astrology reading!
