A "Youth Pastor" and "His" "Penis"

Posted by on Thu, Jun 14, 2012 at 3:18 PM

A 24-year-old Massachusetts woman who allegedly masqueraded as a teenage boy is facing federal charges for engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a 15-year-old girl who was unaware that the boyfriend she met online was actually a female, The Smoking Gun has learned. [...]

According to an affidavit sworn by an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force investigator, [Carissa] Hads—posing as a 17-year-old boy named “James Puryear Wilson”—met the teenage girl on an unnamed “social networking site” around October 2010.

“Wilson” maintained Facebook and MySpace pages that described him as a “youth pastor” living in Quincy, Massachusetts (where Hads actually resides).

Agents also allegedly found that Hads possessed a “fake, flesh-colored penis” used during a sexual encounter with the teenage victim, TSG reports.

Nobody ever fell for a non-flesh-colored penis.

When someone in their mid-twenties pretends they are seventeen and has sex with someone who is fifteen, I feel safe labeling that highly suspect.

From the facts presented, treating the feminine identity as an entirely different person than the male identity, and the use of quotes around gender pronouns, I'm also raising the level of scrutiny on what is being reported. This sounds like a classic case of someone transitioning and being persecuted because of their gender identity. Laws banning identity theft and misrepresentation have been used to target and prosecute genderqueer and transgender people. The facts used to support this so called masquerade, with the exception of lying about one's age, mostly sound like legitimately undertaken steps to transition. (e.g. using a name that comports with one's gender identity, trans men frequently bind their breasts (that what the "back brace" probably was), trans men frequently "pack" with a prosthetic penis). He appears younger than 24, and trans men are often perceived as younger than they are--so even lying about his age, while inappropriate, could be reasonably motivated by a desire that isn't lewd.

The trans community is afflicted with high suicide rates, high unemployment rates, high rates of drug and alcohol abuse and sky high rates of homelessness because of rampant transphobia.

I just don't want to see this blow up into the shitstorm of transphobia I anticipate. To reiterate, pedophilia is wrong. Let's just focus on the adult having sex with a minor part rather than the fact that he had a prosthetic penis, bound his breasts and was once identified as female.

If the penis was fake, then did they actually "have sex"?

Theoretically, what is the difference between this, and her simply using a dildo and him being really close by?

@1 - Just because they're both female doesn't make this hot. This woman's a sexual predator.

@6: You've heard that there's more than one type of sex, haven't you?
