I think it was an odd thing to do, to pretend to be a guy and obviously quite upsetting for the girls who believed they had boyfriends. Gemma Barker obviously has some psychological problems, however, I find her sentence to be a bit harsh. Actually, I find it a bit odd that she was sentenced at all. I don't think that it is a crime to pretend to be a man? I wonder where this leaves transsexuals who haven't fully had a sex change and are living their lives as a man or a woman and who may not tell potential partners. So, what do the people of AH think?
What was the actual crime?
The crime is only mentioned in the caption of the photo:
She seems like a crafty one.
One of the girls was a minor and there is the issue of consent. I believe it can be considered conditional in law.
There was a male to female transgender on here before saying they wouldn't tell the man until sex IIRC
Is it sexual assault because one girl was 15 or because Barker pretended to be a man? I think it was consensual but maybe the issue of consent is a bit ambiguous because she didn't know who she was really consenting with.
Probably touching their boobs or something. There was a case of it a few years ago with a woman pretending to be a teen boy and did the same and was charged with it.
She didnt just pretend to be a man. She deceived someone into thinking she was a man and then performed certain sexual actions on her without her consent as far as I can make out.
Your confused and are asking a talking teddybear for help.
Also disappointing lack of photos of her in drag.
At least shes out of the closet now
The comments are gas.
I think she overdosed on blue smarties
It's disgraceful and deception of the highest order; basically duping someone into have sex with them. It's right that it's a criminal offence. I would imagine most men would be too embarrassed to come forward if it happened them, though.
