    How exactly am I supporting them? I already owned their music, I don't stream it, I'm not purchasing anything from them, and I'm not sharing it with anyone. I listen to Bowie too, doesn't make him less of a creep for banging a 13 year old as an adult man. Cool straw man argument though.
     
    It's a scientific fact that your brain isn't fully developed, especially in the cause/effect and decision making areas at age 15. Most of the countries that consider 14,15,16 as adult are also considered third world countries; the life expectancy is much shorter than in a first world country. It sucks, but that's the way it is and people have to start living adult lives sooner in those places which is why they typically have a lower age of majority. (In Italy the age of majority is 18, so I'm not sure why you think it's less.)
     
    It's personal to me because I'm close with a number of women who were raped or sexual exploited as teens or younger, many of whom at the time thought what was happening was normal. It's not normal, and it's not ok for an adult man to do what he did to a 15 year old.
     
    I cite US law because that's where he lives, and that's the law he broke. It's still not ok in general for an adult man to manipulate and groom young women into doing/watching sexual acts no matter what country you're in. And just because people sell their young daughter's as brides in Pakistan or whatever country you're thinking of doesn't mean it's ok. Many people in countries that do things like that are actually trying to pass laws to reform those practices.
     
    You say you're not defending him, but then you immediately throw a 15 year old girl under the bus as "guilty" when she was being manipulated by an adult. You might as well just come out and say what you keep implying, "Sounds like she was kind of a slut and got what she deserved."
    Thank you for letting me know not to have any further conversations or dealings with you in the future.
     
    Anyway, you're welcome to disagree, but just know you're going to be way in the minority on this one, and the way you're defending him and putting blame on the victim, people are going to judge you. All your arguments, many of which have either no facts, or insufficient or inaccurate facts also make you come off (to me at least) as a bit of a pedo or at least sympathetic to pedophiles and a misogynist.
     
    And just because I'm feeling particularly magnanimous and I won't see any further replies because I've decided you're an idiot in need of blocking:
    You're = you are
    Your = ownership
    They're = they are
    Their = ownership
    There = position

    I do. Jesse's personal life has no bearing on whether I listen to his band or not.
     
    He's still awful, and I still don't see how you can blame a child for any part in what he did, then act like you weren't defending him and throwing the girls under the bus. I know you don't really want to examine this any deeper, but you should, and it should make you think about your own life and where you draw lines on this stuff.
     
    That's the last I'll say about it though even though I'd like to push it further because it still seems like you don't really "get it."

    I hate to tell you this, but these things still happen.
     
    Besides the point, and why I mentioned so many different people beyond "your" kids. Empathy, dude.
     
    You can't just put the law aside though. What happened was illegal. But the reason they hit send was because they were young, didn't understand the consequences of what they were doing, and were manipulated by an adult man who took advantage of them.
    This ^^ is the part I don't think you're getting. When you were a young teen, did no one ever trick you into doing something you regretted? Not even sexually , just in general.  It happened because they're young and their brains aren't those of adults yet. That's why the laws exist. They do stupid impulsive things.
     
    That last bit leads me to believe maybe you've got some skeletons in your closet.

    You're close to the point where you'll lose that feeling and see it for what it is don't worry. Blink was one of my favorite bands for half my life I never imagined not enjoying them, but the brain isn't fully developed until you're 25. I'm sure you're starting to understand that as you settle into your skin. 
     
    Probably why I'm so dismissive of adult Blink fans tbh. Something isn't right upstairs.

    The Coheed cruise touts a full immersive Coheed experience. Which means at least 2 fans are getting poisoned, and 1 is getting their brains bashed in with a hammer. Enjoy! Marvel, as the fan pissing contest takes place on the lower deck. Rejoice, the merch circle jerk is in the boiler room after dark. The mutiny after the elite fans decide the set list sucks should be live streamable via YouTube as well. Huzzah. Join them as the elitists bash all the other bands to cover up/project their various insecurities throughout the whole ship, every second of every day of the cruise! Cackle, as Captain Keywork attempts to sell you a membership to his "Coheed Club" of which, he's the only member.
