I was having a conversation with someone yesterday about statutory rape and the legal age to consent to sex. During this conversation, I realized that because times have changed so much over the years so should the laws for statutory rape.
Now before you start thinking I want it to be cool for a grown ass man to have sex with a 16 year old, that’s not what I mean. I think the legal age to consent should be different. A man should still get in trouble for having sex with someone under the age of 18, but I feel if she lies about her age and he doesn’t know she’s 16 he should get this harsh punishment because she’s technically not able to consent to sex.
Sometimes you can look at someone and tell they are only 16, but these days it really isn’t that simple. I just feel if a girl is lying about her age and willingly having sex with a man, she knew damn well what she was doing and the law shouldn’t take it upon themselves to say “ohhh no she didn’t, she’s ONLY 16″! Come on now, there is a show called 16 and pregnant! These chicks are legally allowed to get pregnant and then go on a reality show glorifying it, but they aren’t able to consent to having sex!!? GET THE F**K OUT OF HERE!
There should be a way the law also protects the men that really are innocent and just got tricked by these little 16 year old slut bags that are just wild and out of control! Then while they are looking for someone to punish for this “little girl” having sex with every adult man she comes across, they should search for the parents because obviously they aren’t paying attention to what the hell is going on in her life!
So, like I said… A man should get into trouble for knowingly having sex with a child under the age of 18, but don’t try to convince me a little 16 year old slut that’s lying about her age, sneaking into clubs and trying to get tea-bagged by some old head is the victim once the truth comes out!
