    Rep. Lauren Boebert revealed that her 17-year-old son Tyler is about to have a son in April, which will make her a grandmother at 36.

    The Colorado Republican praised the high rural teen birth rates as she said it was evidence these communities "value life."

    "I'm going to tell you all for the first time in a public setting that not only am I a mom of four boys but come April, I will be a 'gigi' to a brand new grandson," Boebert said while speaking Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) event earlier this week.


    She said that she and her husband Jayson "are so excited to welcome this new life into our family."

    Boebert dropped out of high school to have her first child when she was a teenager and later got her GED in 2020.


    But you know it's the drag queen story hours that are "grooming" children.

    What exactly is your point? Are you suggesting Boebert groomed her son to have premarital sex, or someone else?

    ...or are you just mad they're not killing the child instead?

    My point is that Bobert and her son are having children while they themselves were children.
    THAT is the definition of "grooming"
    Not reading kids as a story while wearing a dress.

    Grooming Definition & Meaning - Merriam-Webster

    In the context of child abuse:
    The word “grooming” has become synonymous with sexual abuse of children. High-profile cases such as the allegations by cyclist Bradley Wiggins have raised public awareness of how grooming can go unnoticed. To stop grooming before it takes place, we have to fully understand what it is and how it happens – a difficult task for such a complex and wide-ranging concept.

    According to ex-FBI agent Ken Lanning, the term “grooming” originated in the 1980s during a series of investigations into sex crimes against children in the US.

    Early investigations uncovered patterns of behaviour and specific techniques used by predators to gain access to and the compliance of victims. These early conclusions brought to life the concept of grooming as a non-violent technique used by sexual predators who were not strangers, but known to their victims.

    Groomers placed themselves in roles that allowed them access to children, such as club leaders, carers and teachers. Investigators found that the grooming process involved “normal” adult-child interactions, such as playing games, buying gifts and trips to the park (which isolated victims). On the surface, these behaviours would not necessarily flag any concerns.
    Grooming: an expert explains what it is and how to identify it (theconversation.com)


    What is sexual grooming?
    Grooming is a process that predators use to make a child an easier victim for future sexual abuse. Usually, grooming starts with building a positive relationship with the child, family, and sometimes the community. The predator does this so that their victim lets down their guard.

    Once a predator establishes a positive relationship, the goal of the grooming process becomes preparing the child for victimization. At this point, creating secrecy and beginning to push boundaries becomes the focus.

    Some predators may look for jobs where they have easy access to children. Others look for families with unmet needs and offer friendship and support.

    Is a 17 year old really a child per se? Unfortunately, age of consent isn't even universal in the US(and if you argue that it should be universal, I have no problem with that.). The majority are 18, some are 16 and some even yes have 17. And so because of that, there really isn't a universal cutoff point that we agree on legally. The only legal consensus that has been made into law is that it's absolutely 18, but due to the other states passing their own ordinances, it's not universal but it's a consensus.

    So this is about contempt for the lower classes and their promiscuous ways?

    No, it's about the hypocrisy of claiming that "Drag Queen Story Hours" are about "grooming" when the ACTUAL "grooming" is happening in her own family.

    Please explain this concept of Bobert "grooming" her own son. It doesn't seem to make sense on it's face, but I'm sure there is a pithy column at The Nation about it.

    I didn't say anything about her grooming her own son. He is seventeen, he had sex with someone. Isn't the whole idea behind grooming to indoctrinate minors into having sex?

    You said it was grooming, if you are not talking about Bobert grooming her own son, than who is Bobert grooming?

    Nope, unless you have an example of one of the drag queens at a story hour having sex with a minor.

    I'm making fun of a Republican who complains about grooming when none is taking place vs. her own family WHERE ACTUAL GROOMING is taking place.

    Bobert herself was groomed and she ignores the grooming of her own son.

    But she sure as hell DOESN'T ignore the "grooming" taking place at Draq Queen story hours when, in fact, no actual grooming is taking place.

    OK that sounds a bit incoherent. This doesn't have anything to do with Drag Queen Story hour, we're not talking about a Progressive day care here.

    First of all, who "groomed" Bobert and who "groomed" Bobert's son?

    Nope - I think its more about the consequences of minimizing sex ed in schools and young women having access to clinics that would supply her with birth control. The more extreme wing of the Republican party is all about family values and church. But neither of those things seemed to avoid a 17 year old from impregnating his gf. Where were the church's teachings and the family values in the conception of this child? I'm happy that they're embracing this new family member but I can't help but think that (at least) 2 lives are being radically changed because of sexual irresponsibility.

    So has Bobert been preaching abstinence, Chasity, and putting off sex before marriage? I mean I've not heard her saying that.

    The issue is that pre marrital sex is being celebrated. It did not used to be this way. Our morals are going down the drain.

    The age id consent in CO is 17, so the girl better be 17 or he will be charged with rape.

    Since they are close in age, I don't think he will be charged. I'm just curious when pre marrital sex became acceptable along christians.

    I think the point is that most 17 year olds are not ready to be (good) parents.
