Women Paedophiles and Question Time

There was a question about paedophiles on Question Time last week.

Someone asked about whether it was wrong for a 20 or 30 year old man to have consensual sex with a 15 year old girl, based on a statment made by a policeman.

The usually (rather pointless) discussion followed with all involved basically agreed that it should not happen. What annoyed me was that the reverse situation was not even mentioned - a women having sex with a boy.

The whole event just reinforced the idea that only men can be paedophiles, and only men are sexual preditors. This is complete rubbish. Women are paedophiles and sexual preditors as well, but it almost completely ignored my the mainstream media. Even when it is reported, it is downplayed and typically excused in some way.

This is the news report that reminded me:
