I don't think it means she had literally to escape the rape gangs since she was five. At fifteen, yes, but not at five. The rape gangs was one of the dangers she had to deal with it, not the only one.
I don't think any episode has given us any reason to believe these rape gangs have any kind of standards, especially if 15 years old is still applicable.
I imagine a vast majority of them wait until puberty. Not for moral reasons, of course, just because it would be the vast majority of rapists' preference.
Yep, it's not about asking the ID of victims, but more about when the girls begin to have a "feminine body". That doesn't mean the gangs have ethical concerns. If they see a 12-year-old girl with a "mature" body, they will surely take her.

When Yar left her planet, the rape gangs was a serious threat for her as an orphan teenager. The whole planet is in chaos, so the collective rapes are only one facets of this chaos.
