    Right, because in one instance she was forced into the encounter through physical force, in the other there was no physical force used. And the decision, to enter into such a relationship, was engaged in freely by her. The reason she is considered at fault in such situations is because she is an adult and assumed to be able to recognize the legal and moral issues with it, while a child is not. That is why she is granted rights and responsibilities we do not grant children
    Like I said it makes no rational sense. If a teen can choose to rape and be held responsible, then why is it that a teen choosing to have consensual sex is HER fault? Makes no rational sense at all.

    1) we have a juvenile justice system because we recognize the same level of agency isn't acted upon by adults and children.

    2) what don't you get about the difference between someone acting freely, as opposed to acting under the threat of physical force?

    As I said and will continue to say, focusing on the teen, it makes no sense that he is responsible for one action but too young to be responsible for the other. Granted, laws say there is a difference, and that's what I think is irrational and stupid.

    13 year old boys, are you kidding me?
    No 13 year old is ready for sex, whether it is a girl or a boy. Sex with another teen is just teenage stupidity, and to be discouraged whenever possible. Sex with an adult is coercion on the part of the adult and is just one tiny step above raping nine year olds.

    Should any 13 year old be able to consent to sex with an adult?

    Of course not. Should they be able to make their own decisions as to whether to go to school, pick up their room, treat adults with respect, or any of hundreds of things adolescents think they should be able to decide for themselves?

    Of course not. They're still kids, and under the authoritarian regime of their parents (or should be).

    This is a matter that should be addressed on the family level, and not criminally.
    When it comes to older people taking advantage.. then we have criminal issues.



    Wrong.

    When any adult has sex with any minor it's a criminal issue.

    What kind of sex, besides hetero-sex, can a 13-year old boy have with an adult woman?

    I didn't want there to be any misunderstanding about homosexual sex, or 13 year old girl having sex with and adult.

    I needed to be as clear as possible because this is an internet forum. I already had to deal with one poster insinuating something untrue despite how clear I was.

    We shouldn't. Those women are abusing those boys. The stigma that men always want sex all the time and that all sex is okay for a male is extremely harmful, not to mention inaccurate. The only hypocrites here are the ones taking your viewpoint.
