Re: Why Are So Few Statutory Rapes Prosecuted?

because having sex /= buying a house? As we've proven for millenia, when it comes to sex, any idiot can do it, and most do...

It's because there's an element of power/control/abuse in an adult/teenager dynamic. Really more a matter of boiling down exactly WHEN the dynamic is too far out of whack and the younger party has to be protected.
