Some asshat judge in Texas has ordered a woman to move out of the home she shares with her girlfriend or else her girlfriend will lose custody of her children. “[Judge/Professional Shithead] Roach has placed a “morality clause” in Compton’s divorce papers, which forbids Compton from having anyone she is not related to “by blood or marriage” in her home past 9:00 p.m. if the children are present.”

So I have been struggling with Ms Hunt’s case for the last couple of days. I completely agree that this is being blown out of proportion because it is a same-sex relationship that one set of parents object to the fact their daughter is in a relationship with another girl. On the other had their relationship does violate the age of consent laws in Florida, which in this case would be 16.
These cases of young love get so murky, this year their relationship was wrong(18 & 15), next year it’s fine (19 & 16). That being said, odds are if either of these kids were a boy, there would be nothing to come of it.
