Joe Kort Lost

April 1, 2021.

If your position requires censorship in order to be maintained, you don’t have one.

Joe Kort, author and Internet Expert on Psychology, deleted his entire video wherein he interviewing James Cantor. He’d performed so badly in that interview that it was hindering his image. Worse yet, his position was kindly demolished in the comments section below by yours truly.

In June 2020, I posting the following comment which appears below in response to a video where Joe Kort interviewed James Cantor.

I’ve experienced this when discussing this issue. People report me to the police, threaten to dox me, threaten to kill me, hack my phone, and contact moderators to get me banned on social media platforms, the count of which is now five.

The lack of public discourse and the oppression of free thought prevents change and progress for this and every issue.

How is it possible to make a fair determination about a general age at which everyone is capable of making a decision about whether or not they want to have sex?

There is great variety between individuals at which point they feel they are ready for sex and actually engage in sex, which, by the way, is mostly below the age of 18.

How then can it be justified to punish individuals who interlope rigid age laws?

Equivocating age of consent with the definition of consent is a mistake of the law. This mistake is made with great variety and with dire consequences to individuals in each and every state.

Consent is the agreement to do something. To equivocate consent with abiding by age configuration rules defined by a given jurisdiction for the particular activity at hand results in the problem of determining between multiple types of non-consensual sex:

  1. consensual nonconsensual sex, where the “victim“ chose to engage in an act that was illegal due to complex age and marital constraints.
  2. nonconsensual nonconsensual sex, where the sexual activity was carried out regardless of the will of the victim.

Some states have a close-in age exemption. This is an attempt to assert that young people can have sex without harm but then when the older partner is one day over the allowed upper age limit or age gap, harm is imminent and the older partner needs to be punished with imprisonment and sex offender registration. That is so wrong.

The fact that there is so much variety between states indicate that at least some states are getting this wrong. Do you think it’s really possible that a healthy, pleasurable sexual interaction, legal in one state, is harmful rape in another state?

If the younger person is married to the older person, it is not statutory rape. This is clearly a holdover from Christian values to preserve the chaste of girls for marriage.

Sex and intimacy are not abuse. Sex and intimacy are not inherently harmful. Nor is harm caused by which state one is in. Nor is there inherent harm in various age gaps defined by various jurisdictions. Nor is there harm to have sex before marriage.

But there is great harm in imprisoning and ruining the lives of those people who chose to perform harmless, enjoyable acts. The fact that none of the states can seem to agree on what the correct ages are indicates that probably most of them get it wrong, thereby imprisoning and punishing thousands of innocent people.

By the way, the most common age to sexually offend is 14. And they get thrown on the registry, too. So much for protecting children.

It is a biological fact that girls, on average, reach womanhood at the age of 14.

The ages at which individuals began and complete puberty varies statistically between groups, too.

How can any exact age be a fair determinant for whether or not the act was wanted? And if it cannot always be fair, then why is it acceptable to punish to people for committing a harmless, enjoyable act?

Legislation that defies biological facts is inherently wrong. Sexually mature minors generally experience strong desire for sex. This is summed up in the colloquialism “horny teenager“.

Many adults find these mature minors sexually appealing, too. Even if they won’t admit it, it can be evidenced by the large number of likes, comments, and follows for scantily clad minors on social media.

The age of consent for sex should be reduced to at most 12 for penetrative acts. That doesn’t account for harmless activity that might occur below that age, but is at least a step in the right direction.

Rape and coercion are already illegal. Sexual assault is already illegal. Forcible rape of a minor child already carries special consequences.
