And Here I Thought Judges Were Beyond Reproach

Background: Cody Herrera was 17 when he met a girl who was 14 in November 2014. The girl’s mother found out and warned Herrera to leave her daughter alone, but he continued to pursue her through online communications. In March 2015, the girl let Herrera sneak into her bedroom “ostensibly to watch a movie with her. He began to fondle the girl. She asked him to stop. He then raped her without wearing a condom.” Prosecutors in the case presented evidence that Herrera, now 19, “has fantasized about a 13-year-old girl, watched pornography portraying rape and has had 34 sexual partners.” The judge made national headlines by making celibacy a condition of Herrera’s probation. The Guardian obtained a transcript of Judge Randy Stoker’s remarks at the sentencing hearing and now the case has caused new controversy:
Stoker delivered what amounts to a sermon on modern-day morality in which he connected the 14-year-old victim’s rape to “the social media system”. . . .
Modern-day technology, he added, was at fault.
“I have seen dozens, if not hundreds of sex cases since I’ve been on this bench,” the jurist said. “Our society has come to a point of, I don’t even know how to explain it, you know? I am 66 years of age. When I was 19 years of age, the sexual proclivities of young people wasn’t anything, anything like I see today. . . 
And blah blah blah. Yes, I've heard it all before, radio, television, video games, cell phones, the internet, is ruining kids today. But what about the feminists?
Well, feminist Melissa McEwan doesn’t care about any of that. She has declared that Judge Stoker’s remarks are “rape culture.”

To feminists, of course, everything is “rape culture.” For example, Melissa McEwan’s plumber is “rape culture,” and the election was “rape culture,” and if there is anything that Melissa McEwan dislikes that isn’t “rape culture,” no one can guess what it is.
I guess judges opinions are only sacrosanct when they align with the democrats.
