15!?! Go out and have as much fun while you can. But stay safe.
I agree. The #1 deciding factor when determining whether or not something is a crime should be if somebody used force or committed fraud against someone else. Sadly age difference is usually the first and last thing they focus on.
In high school I knew many freshmen who dated seniors, in both gender configurations, and nobody cared because nobody cried rape. It was just teens having fun.
As for the AOC, Joe Rogan had a great bit about it. For girls 18 is fine. For boys? 6. Imagine walking in on a boy getting blown by the hottest girl in the world and he's smiling and giving you the thumbs up. Are you really gonna call the cops?
What if it's a 14yo boy student and his hot 24yo female teacher? There are real cases where the teacher goes to prison pregnant, gets out years later, and marries her "victim" now that he's over 18. Reverse the genders and make it a 23yo male teacher with a 17yo girl and his 10 year prison sentence is cut short when he's beaten to death the first week in population.
Short story long, age difference shouldn't be used as an excuse to ruin someone's life. Also, there are kids on the SO registry, at least one of whom got put on for kicking a bully in the balls. WTF!?! Too many problems, no politicians who intend to actually do anything about them.
