Wait, What Century Is This? Stop the Hate, Save Kate

by Abby Zimet

Unreal. An 18-year-old high school student has been expelled and charged with two felony counts of “lewd and lascivious battery" because she fell in love and had a consensual relationship with a 15-year-old classmate who happens to be a girl. A highly regarded student, Hunt has until Friday to decide whether to accept a plea deal of two years' house arrest and one year probation. If convicted in a trial, she could go to jail or live under house arrest, and will have to register as a sex offender. Citing the other girl's parents - who evidently "see being gay as a sin" and chose to prosecute rather than talk - Kaitlyn Hunt's family has wisely gone public with a Facebook page and Change.org petition to stop the lunacy. As in, a mugshot?!

"Our family will do everything we can to stop these people from ruining our daughter’s promising life. This is unjust and unfair - and we need your help to stop it." - Hunt's mother
