Perhaps in reporting on the actions of Jennyfer Phan, I have under-emphasized an important angle to the story – the promotion of middle aged men having sex with underage girls. If a seventeen year old was caught leaving my place, the natural assumption is that I knew she was there. Not everyone who would have been accusing me was complicit, of course. Someone who could incorrectly make such an accusation might fairly be said to not object strongly to such couplings, but they probably don’t support them.
The same could not be said of Jen herself, and whoever else knew that they were intentionally setting me up to look like I was having sex with a seventeen year old. Being seventeen at the time, Jen probably felt like an adult and may not have seen the significance. I’m not too concerned with then, I’m focusing on now.
Right now, I was fired at the direction of this woman. She can understand the significance now, as can her new accomplice at CollabNet, Richard Moon. In fact, Richard is a divorced middle aged man, obviously interested in women far his junior. As much younger as high school, I cannot say. The way he came up with a manufactured paper trail for my termination suggests he is too wily to be caught easily if he is interested in teenage girls.
We can say that anyone supporting Jen’s actions then does support the statutory rape of teenagers, whether or not they partake of such acts. If for no other reason than a public false accusation makes people doubt real victims.
Hunting me down to fire me, or going along with such a plan, is no trivial level of support. It says that not only is it acceptable for older men to sleep with underage girls, the men who do so are powerful. If you too want power, you should keep silent if you know anything about such a relationship.
