True … These are the same people who said Greta Thunberg (at 17) was too young to know anything while Shamina Begum (15) was old enough to know what she was doing !!!
Reminds me of how people have been tweeting about Bhad bhabies tits since she was 15.
“Underage woman”, no BBC, that’s a child
Yep stand up for the climate and your a child get sex trafficked by epstein and shes a partner in crime magically..
It’s like how conservatives are pro-life right up until the baby is born and wants things that will actually help it live like healthcare.
It’s called “strategic trivialising”.
I’ve no idea if it’s actaully called that; I just made it up, but it sounds right.
I’m completely out of the loop here, who is this about?
More specifically misogyny.
A 16 year old black kid is an adult who should know better.
A 16 year old white kid is just a child who can’t tell right from wrong.
i notice the same thing in news headlines when female teachers rape their students and the headline reads “groomed” underage male youth
“America needs to decide once and for all, how old is 15 really?”
Kinda like when a female teacher rapes a student its a “relationship”
Very true. I think slowly sexual assault cases are beginning to be viewed in a different light, but this is pretty accurate and pretty infuriating
My daughter wrote a paper about this. She gathered news stories about 18 year olds. When the eighteen year old was the victim, the media referred to them as a teen. When the eighteen year old is a perpetrator, they were referred to as *the young man/woman*. This also occurred when both the victim and perpetrator were the same age. She argued that it’s an example of journalists not remaining impartial and using language to manipulate how we perceive facts.
Annoying/bossy = bratty girl
If it was a boy they’d still be called a dumb kid. Who wants to be yelled at by a child?
Kyle Rittenhouse and Greta Thunberg were born on the same day and same year, one was praised for yelling at the UN about how their childhood was ruined, the other got called a murderer for not being killed by an angry mob. young women are one thing, but how about how we treat young people in general.
I don’t think it’s technically bigotry, but it’s definitely awful
How in the world does this matter… Americans moment I guess
Ohhh can I Facebook that post?
It’s all about the wording
Sad but true
Ever notice the non stop complaining of people
Thanks for all the loves guy
Honestly have not noticed this
I mean… yeah I get her point but like, following it doesn’t make sense. If 16 is “little girl” when it comes to rape then Greta Thunberg is a little girl. If Greta Thunberg is a “young woman” then when it comes to rape then it’s young woman.
If your complaint is consistency then you still lose.
