    It might be obvious to you, but it's not obvious to me and a lot of other people.

Minors, far more often than not, do know have the knowledge or understanding to make these decisions. Just like drunk people.



    Well, too bad. We're not talking about making different laws drastically curtailing behavior for one sex. We're talking about protecting children. You specifically chose to form the OP as you to play on the social stigmas, that he is victorious for conquering her, while if their sexes were swapped, she would exploited. That is the exact opposite of what I meant by "harsher". There is just as much room for abuse by an adult regardless of the gender pairings involved. But girls face harsher physical consequences. They should NOT face harsher social ones. All children need to be protected from sexual exploitation by adults.
    To be fair does anybody understand al of the consequences of any of their actions?

    Only for those girls whose parents fail to educate and arm their daughters about such. My daughter kept a condom in her wallet in her teens just as my son did. Not that it's foolproof. Otherwise, I would say that a teen pregnancy being only the responsibility of the girl and her parents a dubious position, however accurate.

    The boy brings home a court order to pay child support.

It's more like saying that a gunshot wound is more likely to result in severe harm for a smaller person than a big person... still, nobody wants to get shot.
    It all depends on the STD. Gonorrhea can cause infertility in either sex as well as severe mental impairment, as can Syphillis, HPV can cause cancer in either gender but more likely cervical in women, HIV is an equal opportunity disease.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I see people using this thread to ask for acceptance of childish irresponsibility...

    If we are talking about younger teens what is the chance of that happening?

    I mean if the parents are absent enough for a 13 year old to be having sex, how involved will that parent be in the court system to go after the boy?

    I dunno, I kept my son from having sex in his early teens, so I didn't worry about it.

    I fail to understand how it wouldn't be obvious to everyone.
