“ (no, I am not making a direct correlation).”
Point taken but is a bit off topic
To your point:
There are many “consensual” situations that society has decided were not appropriate.
“Adult” has changed throughout history.
Legally Married or age at which a person was expected to be working by was 12 - 14
16 is considered “Adult” in many cases (Maryland if Pregnant).
Adulthood appears to be fungible.
Would it have made a difference to you if I posted (which is the same point I had made):
“ Do YOU respect Men/Women over 21 who have sex with 16-year-olds? Because a man (or woman) has their mind/body tell them they are attracted to the younger adults.”
