When the Hell Did I say This?

Clayton Cramer writes:

My wife and I were watching TV the other night, and MSNBC ran a report about a sting operation to catch men who are trolling online for children for sex. Now, gay activists/law professors like Jonathan Rowe are going to start whining again about how "intergenerational sex" isn't really that bad a thing. Too bad.

I do believe that the dispute Cramer and I had was over whether it was "reasonable" to prosecute an adult who has consensual sex with a 17-year-old as a "child rapist." That's hardly "intergenerational sex."

To tell you the truth, I wouldn't even have a problem with outlawing (with reasonable punishments) any adult having consensual sex with any underaged person (that is under the age of 18), but just don't call it "child rape," because that's not what it is in a factual sense.

Cramer has been unhinged on this issue for a long time. As I understand it, he was invited to leave the Volokh Conspiracy for just this reason.

As to Positive Liberty, I've got a backup of everything. No data was lost.

The site is still not working, and it may be some time until it is, but at least the past two years of writing have not been obliterated.
