An 18-year-old “man” can be made a sex offender for life for having sex with a 16-year-old girl.

Technically that is true. But unless there is four or more years difference in their ages most jurisdictions won't file charges.

I think it varies from sate to state.I think some states make allowances in their statutory rape laws for cases where the girl *and* the boy are both young and both at least close to being the same age...perhaps within a year or two.
