I agree 100% Luna.
And I don't see anywhere in the article whether or not he was forced or consented. So I don't seehow people can declare that he wanted to do it. We don't know.
Further I find it alarming that some people claim that if he enjoyed it, it can't be rape. Baloney. Rape is about consent and power, pure and simple. If there is no consent it is assault. At 15 he is deemed to not be able to consent. He deserves the same legal protections as any female in his position.
There seem to be an awful lot of assumptions going on here that seem to come from him being male. He must have wanted it, he must have enjoyed it, he doesn't want custody, its his parents pushing for it not him, he knew what he was doing..
These were the same kind of judgments that used to be levelled at female rape victims and caused a lot of harm. Its a shame male rape victims are treated so disrespectfully.
