Cecil Ince, who ran for the Libertarian Party’s 2016 presidential nomination among other offices, resigned from the Libertarian Party of Missouri Wednesday after controversial Facebook posts about sexual intercourse between adults and 13 year olds were uncovered. In addition, Ince was removed from his position on the advisory panel for special education at the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
The Facebook posts in question were on a story about a female teacher who was arrested for molesting a 13 year old boy. Ince has since deactivated his Facebook profile but the Libertarian Republic saved screenshots of his posts.
Is it molestation if the 13 yr old consented?
You’re absolutely right they cannot legally consent. That a 13 year old can make up his own mind to smoke a cigarette behind his mom and dad’s back just like he can make up his mind to touch a woman’s tatas. Children of all ages have been making decisions on their own before laws were ever created …
I believe there should be laws for to protect individual life liberty and property so yes there should be laws against the rape and property violations just because a child consents to having sex with an adult doesn’t mean it’s not a violation of a parent’s property
Ince received pushback from other commenters. When confronted with the story of Sean Wingdingland who molested his six year daughter and argued at his trial that she consented to his actions, Ince argued:
PARENTS should protect and preserve their child right to life and liberty. That all consent should derive from the parent on all issues of the child. A parent should deny a child’s right to sex.
When asked what happens when parents do not deny this supposed right, Ince replied:
You can’t rape the willing lol
Ince further defended his comments:
Regardless of any law that exists a child has the ability to say yes or no I don’t know any 13 year old that doesn’t have a Playboy magazine at one time in his life and that if a woman wanted to show him her titties that he wouldn’t be excited to see them for the first time. I am not saying that it is right which it is wrong but the cognitive ability for the child to make a decision like that exist regardless of age of consent laws …
If scarlet Johannson asked a 13 yr old boy if he wanted to have sex it almost guarentee he would say hell yeah. The 13 yr old has the ability to say that.
Ince’s resignation ends his tenure as vice chairman of the Libertarian Party of Missouri. He has also forfeited his role as a delegate to the 2020 Libertarian National Convention.
Ince had been seeking the positions of Libertarian National Committee Secretary and Greene County (Missouri) Commissioner. There is no word yet on whether he plans to continue those campaigns.
