they should both get in troubl wrote:
Why is the younger participant not charged with anything in these cases? If we've decided that it should be illegal for people under a certain age to have sex with people over a certain age, isn't the younger person just as guilty as the older person? We've decided that people under 21 should not drink. It is the minor who gets in trouble if they are caught drinking underage. Why is sex different?
It is not illegal to have sex under the age of 18. It is not illegal to have sex with someone OVER the age of 18. It IS illegal to have sex with someone under the age of 18.
That is why.
