Unfortunately my language isn't deceptive or too strong. We do, in fact, have a cultural contempt for female sexuality - which is why there are so many words like 'slut' intended to demean sexual women and virtually no corresponding terms for men.
Your insistence on conflating a woman's right to use her body and sexuality as she chooses with the exploitation and victimization of children does neither any good. In fact it succeeds in obscuring the particular issues relevant to each and perpetuating the darkness and secrecy in which abuse thrives unimpeded.
Please, try to stick to the point; don't infantilize women in your desire to help children. Cheap rhetorical sleight-of-hand doesn't really support any position worth holding.
