How many people may be on S.O.R who were, in fact, intimidated sexually by a minor but were charged just the same? This statement of law does not make sense, nor do the laws governing most of the USA with age requirements and/or S.O.R.
"An exception is also made when an individual below the age of consent rapes an older individual; the older individual is not punished". This statement is incorrect. They have always seen the elder as being at fault, no matter how old -- one year to 20 years,
but yet they allow 14 year olds to marry and that's not considered rape? Because of a piece of paper? They’re old enough and understand meaning of marriage and "understand the meaning of consent of sex in marriage at 14," but don't understand it at 14 if they are not marrying? All because of a piece of paper? Man, I have heard almost everything now! Are you kidding me?
If this is the case, you have a lot of folks on SOR who shouldn't even be on it! To say it's OK for a 14 year old to have sex because they are married is OK, all because of a piece of paper? But if they’re not married, it is an act of rape even if they consent to it?
As far as them making any type of sexual movement or anything sexual they are never, never considered the culprit. How many lives are ruined because of this mud hole we call law?
Take a look at the judge who did rule in favor of one guy who stated the female who was underage and came after him for sex and basically molested him. The DA said it was rape because she was underage. The Judge saw at age 14 a female’s hormones are at work in some situations and are higher then a 21 year olds and in a lot of cases, they seem to know more then a 21 year old.
I have a daughter and several nieces. All have openly stated they started having sex at 13 and 14 years old because they wanted to and stated it was an urge for them. They are all now over age of 21, and some are into their 60s now. It wasn't rape to them; it's something they wished to do of their own accord.
But how can you say that a piece of paper, namely, a marriage license, mandates what is rape and what is not "with consent" of one who is under legal age?
Numerous states within the USA allow underage marriage at ages of 13 and 14 years old.
So does this mean if one is of age and one is underage and they wish to have sex, the one who is underage signs a letter of consent and gets it notarized (which becomes basically a legal document) stating the elder has the right to have sex with her due to this legal, binding document?
A lot of laws in this country are a joke. Some have led voters to believe the government is doing something to protect them by scaring them to believe otherwise, when in fact, it is double talking -- doing one thing and saying something else! I mean, seriously?
What’s wrong with this picture? You can’t do it this way. If you do it's rape, but if you sign this paper then you can do it and it’s not rape? I mean, hello?
If that's the case, that leaves S.O.R to the repeated pedophiles out there and allow the others to resume some type of normal life!
