    the same reason we curb many of our natural inclinations: due to the fact that we can and often find what is natural isn't the best at serving the needs of a moral and ethical social framework

    Re: Should 13 y.o. boys be allowed to consent to hetero-sex w/adult women?

    I had to think before deciding how to vote in this poll. I think the key phrase here is "when a boy wants sex with a woman". It should be something that the boy should initiate, not the woman. If a boy is mature enough to understand the concept of sex (and many 13 year old boys are), then I don't see a problem with him seeking it from a mature woman. Of course, we know most 13 year olds are not going to be hitting on older women for sex, so it becomes a moot point.

    However, women shouldn't be going around seducing underage males and being allowed to get away with it. The reasons you see so many women taking advantage of young men is because they know if they get caught, they'll get a slap on the wrist. Women have so many advantages in society, and there are so many double standards in favor of them, it's sickening. Women receive much lighter sentences for committing the same offenses as men, crimes against women are taken much more seriously than crimes against men, and society in general doesn't really seem to care. The justice system's bias in favor of women must end.

    What if the 13 year old boy wants sex with a man? Does that change anyone's perspective?

    Interesting question.

    And no. Operative concept is adults having sex with children, which is wrong. A 13-year old is a boy, an adolescent child. Man or woman with whom he has sex, and no matter how enthusiastic he is, it's statutory rape.

    I suppose we should remove all laws in the process then to be more like nature. Rampant theft and murder, go!

    Now if you want to argue it should not be the same as FORCIBLE rape, that is not as severe legally, I would agree.
    Well said Goshin. Its child abuse pure and simple. Far too many people look at this with a big smile on their face and a rise in their pants thinking "WOW" but if one can get past that initial pleasure - these kids can be messed up bigtime from stuff like this.

    No, unless they are also to be tried, convicted and sentenced as adults for any and all criminal actions. Consent, the maturity to understand the consequences of one's actions, implies complete responsibility. Children are treated differently, from adults under the law, because they are different.

    Though I very much like the breaking off your boot in her crack part in retaliation, I don't think I would stop there if some woman preyed on my 13 year old son like that. I'd mop the road up with her. Even her mama would have a hard time recognizing her when I was done with her.

    Ephebophilia is 15 to 19. Hebephilia is 11 to 14. So the 13 yo would fall under the later catagory.

    I'm going to disagree with you on the age as the line, but state that I do believe that the law should have a provision that if there is an adult/minor relationship and the minor wants to contest the statutory rape, (s)he should be allowed and the court can make a case-by-case determination as to whether or not the minor in question was truely mature enough to have made that decision. As Paschendale noted there are probably some 13 yo who are that mature, but not many.

    This should NEVER be the basis of a law.
