Chris Brown, gay rights activist, gave an interview with The Guardian in which he bragged that he “lost his virginity” early — at 8 years-old. I don’t think he realizes that he didn’t have sex. He was molested. He was raped. There is absolutely no way an 8 year-old can consent to sex. Here’s what he said. From The Guardian:
He lost his virginity when he was eight years old, to a local girl who was 14 or 15. Seriously? “Yeah, really. Uh-huh.” He grins and chuckles. “It’s different in the country.” Brown grew up with a great gang of boy cousins, and they watched so much porn that he was raring to go. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I’m saying? Like, girls, we weren’t afraid to talk to them; I wasn’t afraid. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it.”
Jesus Christ. Imagine if it was reversed and a young woman was talking about how a 14 or 15-year-old boy had sex with her when she was 8 years of age. No one would think twice that she was raped. Chris Brown is in severe and sad denial if he thinks it was perfectly normal and even funny for him, at 8 years old, to have sex with anyone, but especially a teenager. I’m hoping this story isn’t true, for Brown’s sake, and I don’t even like Chris Brown.
