"Now, the girl was a consenting partner (inasmuch as you can consent to anything when you’re 11 years old.) She got drunk on cider to steel herself up for it and then posted the pictures herself, even captioning one as “tits oot.” So maybe she is this mythical wild child succubus or whatever, but really the whole thing all around speaks to just a weirder, bigger cultural phenomenon. Is there really any doubt that this little girl is emulating “adult” pop starlets with their sex tapes and leaked nude photos that make them all the rage and suddenly legit? And is there any doubt that this little dude is taking his sexual assault trial behavior cues from celebrity adult role models?"
