I say leave the 16 year olds alone. They're ignorant, inexperienced, have absolutely no capacity to appreciate talent and they have algebra homework to do (if they're in the advanced class). They can't talk about anything except the Disney Channel and Twilight. What self-respecting person chases that?
Men who want HS girls are looking for an easy judge and someone they can easily dominate. They are not looking for a partner, teammate or anything of the sort. Basically, disgusting little men who think they have no alternative but to turn to children for validation.
The vast majority of people are finished (note: not "started") mental and physical puberty at 18. Anyone who wants to chase younger girls is a sick perv who should be jailed (probably permanently) for the good of society.
