    Well that really depends on whether it was actually his operation.

    I think in the documentary I watched only one women was actually under age when she went to his house. That's not too say there weren't others. She was the one who lived in a trailer park near Palm Beach. Quite a few of the higher profile accusers were adults and even when abused , they went back for more. It's a pretty sad world we live in.

    The legal age of consent in the UK is 16, so if Prince Andrew slept with Virginia Roberts when she was 17, what crime has been committed?

    Mods Mods? This person has admitted he might have been wrong on the internet and issued an apology. Is that allowed here or ban?

    Well I feel I do, so please accept them. I try my best but English is my weakest subject, I have learned so much from participating here so please keep pulling me up on things so I can improve :)


    Haha why be a member here if not to learn? We can't grow if we are closed off to input by some strange notion of arrogance or even pride.

    Much more than that. heard the lawyer representing Epsteins victims saying she has over 20 bank accounts with the smallest being several hundred thousand and the largest is over $20m and then there are her assets on top. Hence the lawyer saying they want all that money and asests seized and paid over to the victims just like all of Epstein's money was. This is really just another money grab on behalf of the victims.

    I suppose some people like it better when it's illegal.
    I personally think it was better where he had it because somewhere there is a room containing loads of CCTV sex tapes with high ranking people.

    A Paedophile is sexually attracted to pre-pubescent children. Epstein was seemingly attracted to pubescent teenagers, which would make him a herbophile and young women, which most men are attracted to as it's the optimal age for a viable pregnancy.

    I realise this is semantics, although I also believe the crime of paedophilia is far worse

    I might be reading this the wrong way but this seems to be getting rather close to victim-blaming.

    Okay friend, let me explain something to you since you seem to be new here. Hebephilia is NOT the same thing as pedophilia. I'm sick and tired of you trolls popping up everywhere and spreading BLATANT misinformation. In many countries hebephilia is considered normal and healthy. Human beings have a natural attraction to girls who are going through puberty. Being attracted to girls who are pre-pubescent is sick and disgusting, but only in the US does there seem to be an unwarranted taboo around a healthy and normal condition. My head hurts. I'm just trying to get my real life back.

    It's almost as if they weren't abused at all but simply participated in consensual sex between adults while living a jetset lifestyle and now they've been discarded are hoping to get some free money with a court case

    This is not twitter. If you are going to use terminology as useless as "victim-blaming" then perhaps qualify your post with informed opinion or reasoning, otherwise whats the point in your post? We must have standards that we, ourselves follow.

    I'd perhaps try to look through their perspective a little, there are different kinds of abuse and a victim of manipulation may not act as expected.

    The term existed long before Twitter... It doesn't really need qualifying, does it? I accepted that I may have taken the post the wrong way but it reads like because the victims went back then it was mostly their own fault. It just seems to completely disregard how abuse works, particularly with people as powerful as Epstein.

    I think that's kind of what I said, in not so many words. The age of consent being as high as 18 is a very modern phenomenon.

    It seems they only decided they were 'victims of abuse' after the relationship had ended. You set a very dangerous precident for sexual consent laws by prosecuting someone for having sex with another consenting adult.

    The fact they are also seeking damages from a billionaire is a huge incentivisation for dishonest testimony.

    I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as pedophilia, is in fact, hebephilia, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, ephebophilia. Pedophilia is not merely the attraction to anyone under 18, but rather a totally separate disorder (not a legal term) listed as a sexual-psychological disorder categorized under paraphilias, a group of sexual-psychological disorders in the DSM-IV and considered a disorder under the standards of the American Psychological Association. Many people could be considered ephebophiles despite the fact that they themselves may not know the term, much less what it means. Through a peculiar turn of events, ephebophilia and hebephilia became grouped under the very general and inconclusive cultural term "pedophilia," and the majority of people using the term are unaware that they are referring to non-paraphilic sexual preferences that are unmentioned in the DSM-IV and occur relatively harmlessly in a great deal of the population. There really is a pedophilia, and these people may be referring to it, but nevertheless it is a small part of what is labeled under "pedophilia." Pedophilia is labeled as a paraphilia because it is by nature unhealthy. Paraphilias are all unhealthy and destructive to relationships, but are restricted to the definitions set forth in the DSM. Pedophilia is simply grouped with the non pathologized conditions of hebephilia and hebephilia because they share a few similar traits. In reality, pedophilia separate from both and should be treated as such, and many people described as pedophiles would be better described as hebephiles or ephebophiles.

    Thanks, understood. I'm not sure of it's origins but since twitter it is often posted without having the justification or point of the post alongside, pretty empty in terms of content when read.

    So did some of the Romford girls.

    I guess that is where evidence and court trials are used to ensure the correct justice.
    Yes, but it is also a powerful asset for a predator.
