    In no way do I feel as if I am a product of some sorta psycho rape culture because this was normal civilized behavior back then.

    "Rape" was something completely different in the 1970's. Now, if Pete was wearing a mask and hiding in the bushes force raping a bunch of kids then obviously he's a piece of dung.
    But if he was engaging in consensual sex with a 16 year old in the 1970's then I say leave him alone about it..

    He was 34, married, with two kids, and sleeping with a 16 year old.

    That you're making this political is bizarre. Get help.
    “When I use a word,” Trumpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Trumpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”

    Fair enough
    I'm not trying to defend rape at all
    My original response was to the guy who stated that 16 was the legal age of consent in Ohio (which it is).....and then the other guy saying that it wasn't "Classy"

    The kicker isn't actually always the age of the one underage, it's the age difference (IE Pete was 34 and therefore is the "Adult") my mother was 17 when she married my 20 year old father (Both had to get notarized permission from their parents) Add in Pete was celebrity and a married one at that and there's the larger story of the hookup IMO

    Well, as others have said here, I'm not defending rape culture or general disgusting behavior, but...
    I believe that consent laws like this are in part to prevent every 17/18 year old couple (and the like) from engaging in illegal behavior that would brand the older partner as a sex offender the rest of their lives.

    That's all I'll say on that matter.
    Pete is gross.

    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    Yeah, I think 16 is an okay age of consent. Probably should be paired with some sort of "age difference" rule until 18, though. Like 16 with no more than a 5 or 6 year difference.

    But what Pete was apparently doing was very Pete.

    A little bit off topic, but do you guys think that Jesse Winker profiles more like Pete Rose or is he just the next Hal Morris??

    I'm not wanting to go all political. But I'm a conservative. And my condemnation of it had nothing to do with popularity. It has to do with what's right and wrong. Having been a fairly decent looking guy who taught high school in his early 20s, I had quite the number of girls below 18 make passes at me. The means some went to was pretty ridiculous. But you know what...I am adult. That was in position of authority. Abusing that is the epitome of disgusting. I've defended Rose quite hard on this board and taken quite a bit of slack for it. But if these allegations are true, the. He deserves no defense. The law thinks so too. Hence statutory rape being a strict liability offense. (There is a defense....that it didn't happen. Other than that it takes some pretty crazy circumstances to mount a defense.)
