Men and women and boys and girls are equal in the eyes of American society right?
The idea that one situation is worse than the other contradicts that belief of equality. Thats what the judicial system and the american public has to understand.
I don't know if you're serious or not.
Regardless of whether you are or aren't, America thinks a lot of things that simply aren't reality. A man is capable of forcibly raping a woman, women can't do that. When I think of a grown man fu*king say, a 14 year old girl, I'd say that the girl was taken advantage of in a way that's light years different than a grown woman fu*king with a 14 year old boy. Science shows that young women simply aren't ready mentally for s3x at that age, look that up for yourself. A 14 year old boy though? Much different. Men and Women are NOT the same. Nobody with an above average IQ believes they're the same/equal.
Laws are put into place to protect them, and they should be followed. I just don't like the grey area of 17 and 18. The country believes everyone is equal according to you, yet we can't even agree on a country-wide age of consent? Come on man. People are stupid... sh*t man, three states have 14 year old consent!! And multiple more are 15 and 16. You tell me what's real and who's taking advantage. The teachers shouldn't be s3x offenders IMO.
