I am a fan of the family model, the guardians/parents protect their daughter from exploitation of possible bad MAPs.

And you know who would also protect kids from possible bad MAPs? The majority of MAPs, who are decent people.

Who protects us from the not so decent girls out there who might try to use us too? I would expect we would also have to protect each other, as would the decent girls out there who would be in our corner.

It isn't perfect, most often the abusers of children are the parents.

Indeed, which is not an indication that parents are inherently bad, but that giving any group of people too much power can turn them into abusive individuals. So in the current climate, who protects kids from bad parents, since the status quo model puts kids firmly at their mercy?

A social atmosphere of respect for youth is most important.

Agreed. Denying them agency based on Lemondolphin's status quo friendly model is hardly a form of respect, nor is his strange combination of moralizing worship and infantalization. Disrespecting adult men as the liberal version of child protectionists do by putting kids and women in a position of legal entitlement (while claiming they are marginalized) only turns them into potential abusers, which is what happened when the #MeToo movement got way out of hand. The ideal is a social and legal atmosphere of mutual respect, mutual legal empowerment, and mutual accountability--plus no legally or socially sanctioned dislike of any particular group of people. That is most certainly not what we have today.
