The sky is blue on a cloudless day on Earth. This is true everywhere. This is something about which you can say “it just is”.
Maturity, who is able to understand the concept of giving consent, who is able enough to resist pressure from who to make consent meaningful, that’s not so obvious (no name pun intended).
Here’s a fact: on none of MY birthdays did I receive a book, brain implant, or whatever that made ME suddenly capable of consent. I guess this was an administrative error, and will report my ex to the police for having sex with someone who accidentally still has the mind of a child .
Repeating something from a reply to a PM because it’s worth reading for everyone: people say “mature” when they mean “slut”, and let rapists get away when the victim is considered a slut. When I say maturity, I mean actual maturity, as in understanding ones own and others’ emotions, understanding consequences of actions, etc.
Now, to bring the attempt to move back to facts and logic from my previous post back to topic:
- In the location where Sara is, it would be illegal for anyone to have sex with her, even if her partner was 17 too.
- Using the moral logic I proposed, Meighan would definitely be a rapist if she had sex with Sara, Hillary could be a rapist depending on the situation (having power being the director), and Lucy could be a victim depending on how dim you interpret her to be.
