It seems that calmer voices are starting to prevail in the case of Kaitlyn Hunt, and the #FreeKate movement just might be starting to sputter. The Other McCain has the details…
The local chapter of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) refuses to support accused sex offender Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt:
PFLAG of Vero Beach has received questions and comments regarding the controvery involving the two young ladies in Sebastian.
We have been watching the developments in this case since it was brought to our attention. PFLAG of Vero Beach cannot enter into the controversy for the following reason. We have not been able to find where the charges brought against this unfortunate young lady are inspired by homophobia, or are in any way anti-LGBTQ. . . .
The cry of discrimination, unless more facts come out, does not seem to apply here. Some very simple research yields cases where heterosexual kids have been arrested and prosecuted under the same law.
So, are people finally noticing that they initial reactions were just that-reactions? It seems that people are discovering what we were saying all along; that this is nothing more than an adult having sex with a child, and being arrested for it.
The unravelling of #FreeKate continues.
