Why I Think Tom Milsom Is Innocent
Simple. When I was 14, I was dating a 22 year old. I consented to everything. Sometimes we got into fights, as normal people do. The relationship became a little abusive just because I isolated myself from all my friends and that’s just the way it happened. Is he an abuser? No. Did I ever and am I ever going to press charges? No.
This girl very clearly just wants attention now that she is 18 and can press charges. I doubt she actually will. It was a relationship she consented to and now supposedly regrets. I’m not assuming this because I like Tom, I’m assuming this because I’ve been in this sort of relationship.
I really really want Tom’s side of the story because if she consented at 14 he’s not an abuser. It’s that simple. And I’m under the impression she did.
sorry but you’re an idiot
A 14 year old cannot legally give consent because THEY ARE ONLY 14 so even if they say yes to an adult that they want to have sex, it’s still sexual abuse. Doesn’t matter if she wanted to be in a relationship with this douche or not, because he was the adult in the situation and he should have known that she was too young to give consent and that what he was doing was illegal. Even if he wasn’t explicitly abusive (which obviously he was) that’s still an act of pedophilia.
Also the whole “her situation can’t be this way because I was in a similar situation and it wasn’t that way for me” argument is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Like do you tell people with food allergies that you don’t believe them because YOU’VE eaten that particular food and it didn’t make YOU sick? Don’t be dumb.
