    Only if it is also for girls since we all know that girls at that age are actually more mature. The only difference sexually is the social reaction to them having sex. For a boy, he's a stud, for a girl, she's a worthless slut. Lower the age for both and quit demonizing consensual sex.

    If some adult woman had had sex with my son when he was 13, they'd BETTER put her in jail or I'll break my boot off in the crack of her ass... 13yo's are not mature enough to make good decisions about sex.


    Now if you want to argue it should not be the same as FORCIBLE rape, that is not as severe legally, I would agree.

    So if he had sex with a 13yo girl consensually, that's better? He can do that, just not with an adult?

    Nope, didn't say that. Now technically I think the Romeo and Juliet laws would have protected him (and her) in such a case... but that does NOT mean I would have been okay with it.


    My son has always been bigger and more mature looking than his actual age, and this has been a problem sometimes. When he was 12, there was a 16yo girl after him when we were on vacation... I politely ran her off, because I knew he wasn't ready to "play in that league".

    How's a 13 year old girl going to take him out to IHOP in the morning after?

    With her babysitting money, the bus or a bicycle. You'd be surprised how able 13 yo girls are at solving simple problems. The bigger question is how they managed to spend the night together without either parents finding out all the way through breakfast at IHOP.

    Dude, seriously... what could go wrong? Well there is:

    STD's
    Unwanted pregnancy
    A wide variety of issues that can arise from becoming sexualized too young...


    I'd of been a bad father if I hadn't stepped in and stopped that.

    Seems to me you'd be better off having a few discussions with your son if you want him to be informed instead of trying to police his acquaintances. But I do notice that parents seem to stupidly think that keeping their own children entirely ignorant is the best way to not need to trust them. Instead they're the ones who make normal choices with bad results.
