France could introduce a law to rule that anyone aged under 13 is automatically considered unable to consent to sex after a 28-year-old man was acquitted of raping an 11-year-old because the relations were deemed consensual.

He's not from your state

He is.

raised in your culture

Not really, no.

raised in a religion you find familiar?

I'm atheist, but I guess you could say I'm familiar with Christians. They're all over the country, so this is fairly broad.

He doesn't look like anyone in your family

No.

isn't a familiar face in the power structure you're used to?

Not sure what you mean by that. Old white guy? Sure, I've seen lots of those in higher positions. That's fairly common across the country though, so it's not specific to where I live.

I don't know who the guy is really, and I'm not even voting for him. I heard local outlets, and locals discussing it. He may be guilty, he may not be. I just find it funny that nobody ever said anything until now, 30 or 40 years later, when he's running for a high office. Seems too coincidental IMO.

Also I don't agree with reddit's policy on guilty until proven innocent.
