People often forget the right to free speech also means having the right
to tell people they're wrong and society has moved on from finding these
opinions acceptable.

Stallman has made quite a few vulgar remarks about women recently. Men
who make such remarks don't realise quite how creepy they sound or how
vulnerable they make women feel.

The second one is a factual statement, though in the context of using
the age of consent as a means to sleep with the youngest possible people
legally is pretty vulgar.

The first is not OK at all.
