The age of consent should be 18 if the other person is also an adult.
Why? I guess I’d be okay with that, as long as you have an affirmative defense in there for those who are less than 3 years older than the minor. I don’t want to lock an 18 year old up for having sex with a 15 or 16 year old. You’d be locking half the kids in the country up if you did that. I would definitely want to lock a 25 or 30 year old up for having sex with a 17 year old if the age of consent is 18, however. Let’s also examine the enormous double standard between male rapists and female victims vs. female rapists and male victims. When female teachers abuse their power and have sex with their middle schoolers, I always see comments on news websites saying how the male student was so lucky to have sex with his teacher. I’m sorry, but I think that is disgusting. They should be executed, just like the adult males who have sex with middle schoolers. Agreed?
