Keep these words in your memory: «The children of this country have the right, they have the right to know their own body, to know that no adult can touch their body if they don’t want to, if they don’t want to, and that this is a form of violence, they have the right to know that they can love and have sexual relations with whoever they want, based, yes, on consent, and these are recognized rights”. Irene Montero, Minister of Equality of the Government of Spain, September 21, 2022.
Put the declaration of the minister in relation to Article 183 of the Penal Code: «Whoever carries out acts of a sexual nature with a minor sixteen years old, shall be punished as responsible for sexual abuse a minor with a prison sentence of two to six years. You don’t have to be a legal expert to realize that the age at which a child is recognized as having the capacity to freely consent to a sexual act with an adult is set at sixteen. Below that age it is not possible to interpret that the minor has “consented” to have sexual relations “with whoever they want” (or “love”, as the undocumented woman says). Having sexual relations with a minor under the age of sixteen It is a sexual abuse, a pure and simple crime.
In the time that has elapsed since the minister Irene Montero made those statements, the woman who became a minister of the Government of Spain because at that time she was the sentimental partner and mother of the children of Pablo Iglesias Turrión, not only has she not rectified (she has not I expressed myself well, I wanted to refer to the future of those children, I was talking about when they stop being minors…), but he has reaffirmed his words and has taken the opportunity to play the victim and attack “the right” and the “extreme right” that according to her they are attacking her.
But more scandalous than the minister’s speech is the silence of Pedro Sánchez Castejón, the president of the “most feminist, progressive, inclusive, environmentalist government in the history of Spain”. Perhaps the silence is explained by the fact that, while this episode was taking place in Spain, he was very busy meeting at the United Nations Assembly with Petropresident of Colombia.
“Which is more poisonous for humans, cocaine, coal or oil?”. Pedro Castillo, president of Peru, (investigated for corruption in his country and whose words before the UN were described as “regrettable” by the president of the Foreign Relations Commission for “putting us down before the international community and lying”) or Boric, who called a referendum in Chile to change the Constitution and when 60% of the citizens rejected it, he has been so impressive giving lessons on direct democracy in his intervention at the UN. Between meeting and meeting with those guys who represent the worst of politics, Sánchez only found time to take out his checkbook and pay Bill Gates 130 million Euros and take a picture with him.
It seems that Sánchez did not find it important or necessary to intervene before a position of his Government – if it is established by a minister and it is not censored, it is the position of the Executive – that comes to qualify pederasty (“sexual practice with children”) as a “right” of children who are victims of that practice atrocious. Pedro Sánchezwho appointed this minister, It is the main culprit that today in Spain pedophiles can interpret that their despicable practices find understanding within the Government.
As much as the minister insists that it is the right of children to have sexual relations with whoever they want, children under the age of sixteen are not old enough to consent, so any adult who has sexual relations with a child will be committing a crime.
How scary it is that the protection of minors in Spain is in the hands of people whose heads are so confused or so diverted. I am not surprised that we have seen how the socialists found an explanation, if not justification, in cases such as that of the girls raped in the Balearic Islands while they were under the tutelage of the Socialist Government of the Islands or the Oltra case, in which the Socialist Autonomous Government of the Valencian Community has protected the rapist and persecuted the victim.
And disgusting, really, disgusting.
