"sexual autonomy" meta, child sexual assault/grooming, rape 

The idea that children should have full "sexual autonomy" with grownups is rape culture, full stop. It's the same logic that only recognizes strangers jumping out of dark alleys as "real rape"--anything other than physical force, like fear and isolation and the process that oh-so-slowly chips away at one's ability to say no... that's "autonomy," i.e. They wanted it. They asked for it.

This is old, old garden-variety rape apologism and it's been spouted by every child predator trying to sound hip and cool and liberated. Just ugh.
