Katie Hill: "A [Pre Teen] Sexual Kind of Thing Too Young"

In October of 2019, RedState, a political blog, posted allegations that Congresswoman Katie Hill was involved in a throuple that included Hill's female campaign finance manager and Hill's husband. The RedState blog post included nude photos of Hill. 

Subsequently, on October 27, 2019, Hill tweeted that she was resigning from Congress.

Interestingly and relevant to this blog, Hill shared with Caitlin Moscatello in the New York Magazine article "Katie Hill, After the Scandal" (March 2, 2020) that she had a happy California childhood. 

She, à la Jessica Simpson, had "a sexual kind of thing too young" with another girl when she was 8-years-old. 

When Hill was 15 and visiting France, a 25-year-old man made out with her. She shared, "I was drunk, I was kind of like, whatever." 

And when Hill was 16 and "blackout drunk", she said that she had sex with a man who was in his early 20s but now she opines "but I guess it's not [sex]." [Emphasis added] 

Lastly, Moscatello wrote: "A tenet of the Me Too movement is that a person can’t fully consent, not really, anyway, to someone who wields power over him or her."

I don't understand what "fully consent" means, but Betsy Karasik opined in her Washington Post op-ed piece (August 30, 2013) that consensual sex between high school teachers and high school students should not be criminalized.
