About those Justin Bieber rape comments …

Justin Bieber

While the settling dust of Justin Bieber‘s … comments, let’s just put it that way, continues to be swept up and analyzed because clearly the political opinions of a teenager matter, the reporter who interviewed Justin Bieber for Rolling Stone magazine has come to his defense.

“I think he meant that God has a plan,” she told PopEater. “Even for the most die-hard Christian, it’s hard to justify rape as part of God’s plan, and harder to justify rape that leads to pregnancy and abortion. I think he was wrestling with that in his answer, which I found to be solid and logical. I think it is being widely misunderstood. He did not say that rape was part of God’s plan.” SOURCE

Do I necessarily agree with everything Justin says? No, I don’t. Sure, I like my healthcare but I don’t think America is evil, or that sex isn’t something you can do for fun or profit, and I sure as hell don’t think that woman shouldn’t be allowed to choose what they do with their own bodies. But I don’t begrudge Justin for having his opinions; he’s a sixteen-year-old whose lived his entire life in a bubble meticulously handcrafted by his insane mother. I could go on, but really, he’s a teenager. Don’t try and hold him up to the moral or even intellectual standards of an adult because he is not. And most importantly, just because someone’s a sex symbol, doesn’t meant they know anything about sex.
