Reply To: Too young for sex, but old enough to murder


That’s the hypocrisy that has dogged this entire issue from the get. Old enough to be charged as an adult in some situations, but too young to consent to sexual activity under any circumstances. At 14 or 15, young enough to be a victim if the other party is 4 years older, but old enough to be the perpetrator if the other individual is 10 or 11. Either persons of a certain age are responsible or they’re not.
