Republican states have much more lenient laws when it comes to allowing children to marry adults. Every year, about 16,500 children are married, and an estimated 3,000+ of those marriages directly contradict anti-pedophilia laws. Think I'm exaggerating? In Alabama, a 74-year-old man married a 14-year-old girl. In Idaho, a 65-year-old man married a 17-year-old girl. Over the past 23 years, there have been three 10-year-old girls in Tennessee who have been married to men 24, 25, and 31 years old. These are not isolated incidents.
I wonder what they would do if it were females who wanted to marry a young boy? How would they react? Or if the individual was not a heterosexual male? Would they change the laws? I am thinking things would change really fast. But as long as it is white men doing this, there's no problem.
