Did someone mention an instantaneous change that occurs overnight?


I think I did, a while back. There's an instantaneous legal change, whereby sex with an 18-year old on his/her birthday is fine, but the day before, you'd be a felony sex offender. I agree that it doesn't have much correlation with any real-world phenomenon.

Its not like they don't have a fully developed brain and cant make choices.

It's exactly like that. Adolescents' brains are undergoing incredible, unbelievable changes; they're not remotely "fully developed". That's (at least part of) the reason that they do really, really stupid stuff.

So a 16 year old by law has enough of a fully developed brain to be able to drive a car or obtain a part time job but not developed enough to make sexual choices??? Get real...

I wasn't talking about what the law allows; I was talking about the facts of an adolescent's brain. That's as real as it gets.

That makes absolutely no sense.

Which is why I didn't say it.

So a young man or woman at 17 is not capable of making these choices but 24hrs later on their 18th birthday (as if by MAGIC) boom they now know how to make these choices..

Again, I said nothing of the sort.

And I find it hard to believe that you think I advocated any of the above.

OK, Everyone here is right.


Personally, I largely agree with you that these are some stupid laws.

I don't think the older girl is being persecuted as a result of the relationship being same-sex, though. I imagine the same thing would have happened had it been a male-female relationship, except a guy wouldn't have tens of thousands of strangers rallying to support him.

Disagree. In my work I've seen lots of Senior guys-Freshman girl relationships . I 'm willing to bet at least some of them were sexual, and no one made a big deal of them. Your locality may vary.
