    Default Gender Equality

    So, I was reading an article about a teenage couple(under 18) sharing explicit photos of each other. Both parties sent and stored these images. However, only one of the involved parties is facing charges. That's right the male involved may be facing adult charges related to to possession of child pornography.

    I does not understand...

    17m 15f. Virginia.
    The age of consent in Virginia is 18, with a close in age exception which allows teenagers aged 15, 16 and 17 to engage in sexual acts, but only with a partner younger than 18.

    I'm not sure about other countries but the United States have a ridiculous and nonsensical attitude on gender equality regarding both sexes. Neither sexes are safe from societal judgement.

    To be honest, it's pretty ridiculous. The girl sent nudes, he didn't force her, they both (I'm assuming) knew each other in real life as well, in which case they probably had sexual intercourse as well. I'm sorry but this is life. Teenagers do these things. She acted on her own will and charges should only be pressed if SHE wishes it, but to be perfectly fair, charges shouldn't be pressed at all, considering once again, she WILLINGLY TOOK PICTURES. Unless there is some secret rape/force/blackmail we're not seeing, charges are just... unacceptable.

    It's not that simple. Underage children are legally not mentally developed and responsible enough to make such decisions because of lack of experience and development. It's a rule to keep them safe until they are capable of more rational, responsible decisions.

    According to the information presented, however, he shouldn't be punished. I didn't read the article, I'm assuming what he stated is truth.

    Sort of hi-jacking but still related:

    What if a 18 to 21yo female has sex with a ~12yo male? According to a lot of people I know, the kid should get charged (with rape) instead of the female and it baffles me on that mentality. :|

    Who sets that precedent?

    In most Scandinavian and western European countries I know, the legal age for sex is 16, so what is considered "emotionally unequipped for responsible sexual behavior" is viewed differently from country to country.
    In fact, I don't think you'll find any scientifically meaningful standard to determine that age.

    Most people I know lost their virginity somewhere around 14-16, myself included, and they(I) never had any issues with that what so ever(in fact I treasure it, since the sex I had during high school was by far the best I've ever had, up until this day, a decade or so later). I'd like to think of myself as having been pretty responsible since the day I had any semblance of consciousness, seeing as I've never on a single occasion done anything remotely like the retarded stuff you hear kids do these days.

    Acting in a way consistent with a certain level of rationality has come naturally to me since I was 3 years old or so, without failure. Why should I, and people like me, suffer the limitations of law because some of other humans are to effing dumb to manage something similar.

    Some of these days, I just hope the world ends up like in Psycho-pass.
