Because She’s Cute, That’s Why

Posted on | May 24, 2013 | 45 Comments

Some friends have asked why I’m being such a hard-ass about the Kaitlyn Hunt case. Certainly, my personal experience and opinions are relevant to the situation, and perhaps later I’ll discuss the case in terms of my perspective as an erstwhile teenage hoodlum.

No one familiar with Rule Five of “How to Get a Million Hits on Your Blog” could miss the professional interest in a case where it is entirely legitimate to use Jailbait Lesbian Scandal as a headline.

Ouch. Stop. You’re twisting my arm.

This case involves serious matters of law, politics, culture and morality. It also involves journalism bias, with liberals pushing the #FreeKate propaganda of gay victimhood, and it is that aspect of the Kaitlyn Hunt case that angers me most: Stop the damned lies.

So the story engages my interest on multiple levels, and I readily admit that my sarcastic tendencies and tabloid instincts — on the one hand — might appear to conflict with my social conservative stance against the “emerging awareness,” on the other hand. But this is merely an apparent conflict, and the only reason it is apparent is because I’m trying to pull back the curtain and show readers the inherent hypocrisy that practitioners of Serious Journalism would like to pretend doesn’t really exist: They know damned well that Sex Sells, and the more kinky and lurid, the better. And to have Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt — 18 years old, 5-foot-1, 110 pounds — as the “face” of a sex story as kinky and lurid as this one? Yeah, it’s gold, baby.

When the networks trot this story out on Good Morning America and The Today Show, they understand the Rule 5 factor, and the liberal activists understand it just as clearly. That media hypocrisy needs to be exposed by brutally irreverent sarcasm.

It’s important in doing so to make clear that I’m not a stuffy narrow-minded prude. Advocating on behalf of the right of parents to protect their children against moral corruption does not require me to talk like a Baptist deacon addressing a ladies’ Sunday School picnic. Reporters are legendarily rude and profane people, and I expect some of them will be reading this stuff, so readers will excuse me if I speak the native language of the tribe at times.

A friend asked: Am I trying to “crucify” Kaitlyn Hunt? No, she’s quite voluntarily climbing up on that cross — refusing a plea deal that was very generous, all things considered — and I’m merely the minstrel bard telling the tale of her doom. Because she’s cute.

Oh, the pretty ones never see it coming, do they?

Everybody Loves a Pretty Girl, and they become accustomed early to smiling and charming their way out of trouble. Never mind who gets hurt, or how unfair it is that the pretty girl always manages to get away with breaking rules that other people have to obey.

Well, from what I’ve learned about this case — have you read the affidavit? — the sheriff and the prosecutor didn’t really want to put pretty green-eyed Kaitlyn Hunt in prison, but she and her indulgent mother got the idea that the rules shouldn’t apply to Kaitlyn.

Let’s see how this works out, eh? My guess is Kaitlyn’s wardrobe for the final scene will be handcuffs and an orange jumpsuit.

And she’ll look hot.

Don’t judge me, haters.


UPDATE: The courageous Teenage Dildo Queen:

If Hunt loses at trial, she faces up to 15-years behind bars.
“Our client is a courageous teenager who is choosing not to accept the current plea offer by the state of Florida.”
Defense attorney Julia Graves advised her client to go to trial, rather than accepting a plea deal by the state.

All is proceeding as I have foreseen . . .”

    This seems off topic, but it isn’t. Hugh Hewitt (sadly, a champion of “regularization,” but otherwise a smart guy) interviews Mark Steyn weekly on his radio program.

    This particular interview explains a lot about why this particular story (the “courageous Teenage Dildo Queen”) requires a reporter to cover it, and fails to get real coverage in the American newspapers.

    American newspapers are monoculture in print.

    The final two sentences from that LeFave piece should be highlighted and read by anyone pro-#FreeKate:

    The victim is now 21. His sister said he is still getting psychiatric care….

    Cute or not, she’s destroyed a life. Ugh.

    It’s pretty clear that the RPGprince from the earlier thread is probably a teen-they work in a “leadership position” with teens as young as 14-probably making them about 17 or 18. Probably a mentoring group. The language is so (dare I say it?) sophomoric that that’s my best guess.

    How did we get to a place where using others to satisfy your sexual needs, whether it’s legal or not, whether it’s moral or not, whether it harms or not, makes you the victim? And how can we heal the real victims and stop their abuse if we no longer recognize them? When did defining yourself entirely by your sexual preferences automatically give you more rights or freedoms than others? When did beauty get to be more than skin deep or the heart and soul so worthless that sex sells over substance? When are we going to stop allowing selfish people to treat our children, those who are weaker or defenseless and even our pets like prey for their personal gratification? There are laws and they must be equally enforced no matter how cute the perpetrator is.

  19. robertstacymccain
    May 24th, 2013 @ 6:52 pm

    Grant that. My point, however, is that for some girls, beauty is such a source of privilege — they become accustomed to receiving special treatment — that they fail to anticipate the moment when they encounter a problem (usually of their own making) that can’t be evaded with a smile.

    The Lefave case illustrates this tendency, and I think the same is true of the Hunt case: The Smith family twice tried to warn Kaitlyn to leave their daughter alone. Kaitlyn did not take those warnings seriously and then, as typical in the case of sexual aggressors, there followed an escalation with the runaway episode of Jan. 4.

    Sadly, the “Pretty Girl” rule and the “Women Can’t Be Criminals” rule will get her a soft sentence with little or no jail time or any real consequences.

    This is one of my pet peeves.

    WOMEN GENERALLY NEVER PAY THE SAME PRICE THAT MEN DO FOR THE SAME CRIME. As accomplices, they hardly ever get the same sentence (mostly because they fold like cheap cameras and make a deal to get a lighter sentence. [word to the wise for any criminals out there who plan to do or talk about any crimes with their women]. )

    Oh, if they abuse or kill their kids they’ll get some heavy time. Kill their husband? He deserved it. Embezzle some money? She was tempted beyond her ability to resist. Make false claims to get a better divorce deal or exact retribution? The guy pushed her over the edge.

    So I’m guessing there’ll be a lot of sturm and drang but in the end, she’ll smile prettily for the cameras as she gets 18 mos Probation and warned not to munch any more underage carpet.

    May 24th, 2013 @ 8:47 pm

    My guess is that the plea offer includes her registering as a sex offender, and that’s the deal-breaker. If her lawyer is advising her to go to trial just to make a political point, the Bar Association should intervene, it’s malpractice.

    I think she will get away with it. Because legalizing pedophilia is their end game. I don’t see anything cute about her. She looks like the perverted pedophile she is. Also a bit retarded.

    […] Stacy McCain has been going after a story about a jailbait Lesbian scandal, involving an 18-year-old Lesbian, Kaitlyn Hunt and her 14-year-old “victim”. The case is fascinating on several fronts, and of course, Hunt is being used by the “Gay rights” crowd to further their cause. Then there is the matter of how old should one be before society accepts their decisions as to who they do the Horizontal Bop with. To me, 14 is a bit young for that, whether the sex is straight, or Lesbian, or Gay. Maybe 16 is a reasonable age for society to say “hey, they are old enough to make that choice”, but 14? Come on! The other aspect of this, which McCain explains is that some folks would call the accused, Hunt, cute. And, face facts, sex sells news stories just like it sells everything else. […]

    So it is okay to rape young girls if you are a left-wing, creepy, dirty old pervert or a lesbian?

    Somebody explain to me the following:

    1) When are leftists EVER responsible for their own actions?
    2) When are homosexuals EVER responsible for their own actions?
    3) Exactly how is this “for the children?”:
    4) When will we be required to apologize to Anthony Wiener and give him back his seat in Congress?

    How INSANE do you have to be to be a PROGRESSIVE?

    We know this, attractive people get better treatment. This has been proven time and time again. So it is real and it goes well beyond cute 18 year old lesbians.

    The concept of an 18 year old hitting on a 14 year old is not new (think Fast Times at Ridgemont High or your own high school observations of seniors hitting on freshmen).

    But the critical facts in this case are mom and dad warning Kate off and her still going for it. Now I am not sure what the penalty should be for this (I am not a big fan of life time sex registries for youth offenses)–but there should be a penalty.

    I felt bad about commenting that, but kinda glad I’m not the only one who thought so. Youth & health make people seem attractive, but her features really aren’t. In less than ten years, she’s going to be beer-goggle dependent unless she develops a decent character that would make people want to be around her.
