Some years ago a 17 year old girl met a 14 old girl. They made out as some teenagers do. 14 years old is a bit young if it was my daughter but at least such a relationship would not result in a pregnant teenager, so I guess that I would have accepted it.
Even if I had not been happy about it I would not have sunk as low as the parents of this girl over in Florida did. To wait day after day until the partner turns 18 which would trigger some kind of old-school law from the past century is not only cruel. It is sick.
As result of this sick behavior Kaitlyn Hunt will be in jail until today. I fear for the security of this unknown partner. Parents who are afraid of same-sex relationships tend to imprison their children. Tampa Bay Times made a number of articles about some of these private religious teen prisons in Florida and it is not a nice picture of handling human rights. The only thing positive being said about Florida and their handling of teenage relationship – samesex or not – is that they don’t stone the teenagers. Maybe the social services should take a closer look at the family of Kaitlyn Hunt’s lover.
Kaitlyn Hunt – I will pray for you well-being. Being set up like this is not something which should take place when we are talking year 2013.
