I was listening to some moron on the radio talking about the fact that kids in high school are having sex, and “they’re not supposed to”. It made me wonder who he thinks he is to decide when a person should be having sex. If someone under the age of 18 is considered too young to make the decision to have sex and therefore anyone having sex with them is committing rape, what about two people under 18? Are they raping each other?
Just to be clear, I’m not saying that any age is all right for sex. What I’m saying is that if a post pubescent person consents to it willingly, without coercion, then it’s nobody’s business but the people involved. Sex can be dangerous, but it is by no means dirty or evil, and telling teenagers not to do it just makes them want to do it more. Rather than criminalize it, we should educate people and leave it to them.
Girls don’t suddenly become sexually attractive on their 18th birthday. I’d say it generally starts around 15. Finding a 15- 17 year old appealing is not pedophilia, though personally I think taking advantage of their overemotional nature and lack of life experience is wrong. But that’s my moral code. Other people have different morals, and they’ll do what they think they should. Girls are not much more mature at 18 as they are at 15, and the law does nothing to prevent them from having sex even at ages much younger than that.
American society just needs to get a grip and stop looking at sex the way they’ve been taught to by their idiotic religions.
