This is a spin off of something that was said on another post...
Do you think if two young people (lets say both 14) have sex (willingly of course) that only the male should be labeled a sex offender? Why isn't the female also at fault?
What if she lies about her age? (lets say she's really 15 but says she's 18) Or what if she's in a bar and under age? (The bars around here used to serve me when I was 15 and 16) and he honestly thinks she's of age? Should he still be treated as a sex offender? Or should she?
I realize I'm a woman, and a rape survivor and a feminist. But ass all those things I think if we are going to say it's wrong for HIM to do something, we should also say it's wrong for HER and the ball should swing both ways...
What are all of your thoughts? Lets get the conversation going...
There's no way to give a straight answer to something like this. There are just too many variables. I don't think anyone under the age of 18 should be charged with statutory rape, or be labeled a sex offender. There's quite a difference between a teenager having sex with their teenage girlfriend then a man or woman molesting a child. Sometimes I think it just gives parents a way to blame someone else instead of holding their own child accountable.
