  • Underaged Male Victim Forced to Pay Child Support

    Source

    Originally posted by Life Site News
    Nick Olivas, who had sex with a 20-year old woman at the age of 14, did not realize he had a child until the state demanded child support two years ago. He says that he's willing to pay child support going forward, but does not feel that he owes payments for the time that he was unaware of his fatherhood.
    In Arizona, the age of consent is 15 years old. According to the director of the National Center for Men, Mel Feit, this makes Olivas not responsible for the child. Feit compared Olivas to a woman who was raped. "The idea that a woman would have to send money to a man who raped her is absolutely off-the-charts ridiculous. It wouldn't be tolerated, and it shouldn't be tolerated,” he told the Arizona Republic.
    Evidently, 'age of consent' has no bearing in Arizona law. What hogwash.

      Ummm...how does the 20 y.o. not get charged with statutory rape if the age of consent is 15? If the sexes were reversed, it's unlikely a guy would escape the charge....

        This brings to mind a problem I have with an unrelated but, erm, related issue. If a mother can disavow all responsibility for the child in her womb and abort it to the applause of society, why can't a father do the same and refuse support for a child he never wanted? "My sperm, my choice!" etc, etc. We call those dead beat dads.

          If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

            You've answered your own question.

              When feminists tell you that what they hate and fear most is the patriarchy, you should probably consider bringing it back.

                He was 14. He found out two years ago but the article does not say how old he is now.

                  He didn't bring charges at the time.

                    If you want to be a truly moral person, all you have to do is do the opposite of whatever the Left says.
                    Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate.

                      Ah, just read the article and saw that. So, I guess she waited for the statute of limitations to kick in before filing...

                          There's a statute of limitations for child sex abuse?

                            Yes. I believe it varies by state.
