    I agree that it happens; some teenagers (both boys and girls) look older than they really are

    But if you look at Gipper's posts, he was grabbing binoculars to go look at underdressed girls going to high school proms -that was definitely about deliberately checking out under-age girls, not accidentally drooling after one and then realizing they were under-age. You might want to start at post 333 and review what he said that Dragonfly responded to.

    While checking out younger chicks is slightly questionable, I don't see a crime in just looking. Everyone was 16 at one point and biology does not change much between 16 and 50. I do have a problem with any type of sexual contact between a teenager and an adult, but at what age seems to be blurry to me. In some cases I believe that there are 15..16..17 year olds who are mature enough to consent while there are 19..20..21..22 year olds who are not mature enough. Since there is no way to really tell, I guess I have to agree that there needs to be an age of consent regardless. However, I think people get stuck on it to much and don't look enough at each incident on a case by case basis, which is how they should be looked at.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    If you truly think so little if me, this conversation is over and there will not be any others in the future.

    She doesn't. I don't think I have to worry about her dressing like that. She's too much like me.

    I'm ok with that either way. But from what you have written, from your own words, that is what I've gathered.

    Lots of people in the world write their own rules and dont consider themselves accountable...as you have pointed out as well. You created your own code, based on many sources, and that is what you live by. Why you felt the need to invent your own higher power, since they are all your own rules, I dont understand, except that that is how you were raised.

As a result of their popularity, the majority of the girls centered themselves around them. I knew many great guys that I went to school with that never got their due attention from girls simply because they were not jocks. I would teach my daughter to put little value in popularity. To see value in personality over popularity.

    Weird. In my school, there were tons of jocks in the smart crowd. We all hung out in the library. In the top 50 in the class (grade-wise) many were also athletes.

    I have attended 7 schools across the nation due to my mom being military. I have run into smart jocks, but from my experiance they are the exception more than the rule.
