“ Consider the eighteen-year-old boy who got caught making love to his seventeen-year-old girlfriend. ”
Or, consider the countless older men (20+ yrs of age) who screwed up one time by having romantic relationships with teenage girls that were not yet legal consent age but they don’t go around trying to have relationships with EVERY teenage girl on the planet but yet still get deemed a “predator”.
Consider the many “predators” who end up marrying their “prey”.
It’s not just about 18 and 17 and 16 (and furthermore, no 18 yr old is gonna get in trouble for being with someone 1 yr younger. Let’s not exaggerate.)
