Oh course this girl does not belong on “the list,” but the ACLU only takes on “safe” and relatively low risk cases such as this. They simply don’t want to get their hands dirty and are basically playing it safe and cherry picking their battles.

such bs man the government is the one harming these kids that are becoming or have become sexually mature by making them ashamed and afraid of their own sexuallality. Domino effect because they are creating more women like the ones pushing these laws that who have been brainwashed into believing sex is dirty…the girl in my case straight stated on the stand that I never made her feel uncomfortable in my online discussion but when asked why she was crying she stated ” being on the stand and being forced to cooperate in this trial is why I am crying” and also ” being harrassed and threatened by the da and the cops was extremely uncomfortable and something that would stick with her for life” …her words not mine…just saying…
