Men want to be taken completely seriously in business, politics, public discourse, the media, being the head of the family/church, etc. Every important position in life, basically. But suddenly, when they want to find someone to fuck, they turn into these bumbling fools who can never be blamed or held responsible for any kind of misbehavior. "I just didn't know!" they cry, "I'm just a child at heart and she's such an old soul!" See also: Important successful men that pretend like they were manipulated by "gold diggers".

Men also do this when asked to: clean thier own home, parent thier own children, take care of thier own parents, cook a meal, do the shopping, do thier own laundry or buy gifts for the people in thier life.

It's selective infantilisation of the self.

Yup. Women are weak and inferior, so that’s why they should occupy an inferior role in society!

At least until men are forced to be personally responsible for the negative consequences of where they chose to stick their stupid dicks. Then all women are suddenly machiavellian seductresses from birth who make helpless victims of them all. 🙄

Ugh. I even saw a man on the mensrights sub a couple months ago being pissed that his friend was charged for exchanging nudes and sexting with an 11 year old girl. Kept saying that she never said she was 11 and that his friend couldn't have known she was underage. The comments were agreeing with him, some even saying that the 11 year old girl should be the one getting charged for not telling him. It was ridiculous. I have never seen a single 11 year old girl that could be confused for an adult

Even if the looks don't give it away (which they always do but let's pretend for a second), the mannerisms should be a dead give away. 11 year olds do not speak, act, or talk in the way that older women do. Also, if an 11 year old girl is seeking out sex let alone with a much older man she has very likely been sexually abused before. But yes, let's punish the 11 year old.

For men, they should never be held accountable for anything until death, but if a child happens to be female then whatever a grown man does to her is her fault.

if it's a underage girl then she's manipulative and should be held accountable but if it's an underage boy then he can't consent and muhdoublestandarz

Such "mistakes" wouldn't happen if men weren't so determined to fuck young girls. Polanski came right out and said it...and he's never been punished for what he did.

It is not a "mistake" to go for the youngest-looking person you can get into bed and then "oops, she's really 17, not 18." Men are attracted to the 18-year-old in the first place because she seems younger than 18. And all a man has to do to get other men to absolve him and blame her is say she lied about her age. Because, in their twisted little minds, little girls want to fuck them, too.

I hate Planet Man, and I would very much like to be somewhere else now.

I talked about this with a former male friend and it made me realize that women are socialized to see younger people as people in need of advice, care, nurturing, etc. Many men just see younger women as impressionable and unsuspecting penis sheaths (the ones that pass the age of consent, of course /s).

I could never had an age inappropriate relationship with an older teen/young adult because they just don’t register as potential partners to me. I feel have overbearing need to protect these young ones, not date them.

Men do try to pin this on the ~alluring, irresistible essence that femininity~, but confusing children and teenagers with adults isn’t a problem that women who experience same sex attraction are facing. I have never been fooled by a girl posing as a woman.

Very true. Especially with all the trans nonsense and giving hrt and gender affirming surgeries to children, I just wanna protect them! It's just how we've been socially conditioned and obviously there are exceptions, but exceptions don't disprove the rule. I notice a lot of men don't understand this. Like calling the statistical fact that men murder & rape more than women a "sweeping generalization" and then linking a case of a female murderer as if that would disprove the statistics.

Most of the time it's guys that have no business dating 18-20y olds either :| (like in their mid 30s).

We really shouldnt refer to that as "dating" because we all know the guy is not "dating" that young person. That would imply good intentions.

Here's what I don't get: an adult man that wants to hang out with a child is wrong and weird, unless the child is a family member. This guy on Dr Phil comes to mind, who was doxxed for trying to take a 15-year-old to karaoke. It doesn't even matter if the karaoke was supposedly not sexual at all (though looking at the texts, it clearly was meant to be a sexual meeting). A grown man that wants to spend time with an underaged child who's not their relative is always weird and not OK.

I would never "accidentally" end up with someone underaged, because I don't find anyone in that age bracket even interesting as a friend. I stopped dating 16-year-olds when I turned 17.

Boy, do I have an...interesting story.

My parents always let my sister hang out with this adult man we knew, even at a very young age. Like 4-5. I mean she spent the night at his house, he gave her baths, she just stayed at his house for days at a time sometimes. They'd say they loved each other. He was always friendly with me but never gave me this level of friendly treatment. I didn't notice anything off a kid, but when I got older I was like...the fuck? Why did my parents risk giving a neighbor this sort of access to one of their children?

Turns out he's my sister's biological father.

Adult men know when girls are underage, or at least can suspect enough to back off. Even when a girl looks "mature" (i.e. large breasts for her age) her face, mannerisms, voice, and interests give it away.

I think a big part of it is that women who love women have compassion for other women. We treat our potential partners in a way that reflects how we have been treated. Men just see meat to use and own. We are a human being.

I do honestly believe that if the age of consent was lowered to even 13 or 14 (in the US since I’m American) a majority of men would search out for teen girls. Its a thought I’ve had for years and it’s fucking horrifying and disgusting.
