This is a little paradox I found in rape laws...

Ok, so "Statutory Rape" defines the event where one member is not old enough to legal consent to sexual acts (though different from the more severe child molestation.)

Now, this means that if the offender and victim were both under the AoC, then they are raping each other!

Thoughts?

Needless to say, this is to eschew any real concept of consent as it can be rationally defined. The logical extension of such an approach is to hunt down animals and punish them for raping each other.

Don't we do this already? I mean, at least the upper classes do over here.

Even without, though, it's still not paradoxical. Statutory rape laws are based on age, not on consent. Even if both parties consent, they're both underage, and can be charged with rape. There was a case I remember hearing about where that's precisely what happened.

But what if one still didn't agree to it anyway?

Then it's still rape?

In most cases, SR has to have at least 3 years difference. In which case, only the younger was "raped."

Then it's actual rape, not SR.
