    I think the legal age of consent should be 16 for both genders. That said, I agree with the previous poster that when it comes to sex between adults and underage teens it should be looked at on a case by case basis. It should not automatically be assumed that the minor was unable to consent and fully comprehend what they were consenting to. That rigid attitude creates more problems than it attempts to solve.

    Speak for yourself. Maybe some aren't. Does that make it fair for those who are?

    Wow. I had no idea that any state said younger than 16.

    IIRC I think Kentucky has an exemption allowing 15yo's to marry under some circumstances, and there might be others I'm not sure.

    Speaking of reality - all of you who voted "yes"? You stay the hell away from my children in reality or I will ****ing dispose of you.
    Someone saying yes does not mean they want to have sex with your children.

    I'm not advocating pedophilia. I just looked up the definition for "pedophile", and it says 16 years or older being sexually attracted to prepubescents, or, girls 10 years old or younger and boys 11 years old or younger, etc..
    13 and up isn't even close to that.

    There has been a moral and ethical social framework in place for thousands of years. Only in recent modern society was the bracket for being a pedophile readjusted to include 13 and up.

    you're appealing to tradition. Lot's of things were traditional at one point that are no seen as morally and ethically wrong, such as beating your wife. So pointing to such hardly justifies it, while I can point to the lack of social and cognitive development on the side of a 13 year old

    Now if you want to argue it should not be the same as FORCIBLE rape, that is not as severe legally, I would agree.
    This sums it up pretty nicely. Not really sure what more there is to say.

    I say no but on this issue I am kind of a hypocrite because when I was fourteen I lost my virginity to a twenty year old woman and never regretted it.
