Prisons are full of underage boys paying the price for a decision. Yet, we say underage people cannot consent to sex. Why the hypocrisy?

I find it hypocritical. On one hand we say people are mentally capable and then on the other we say they aren't.

We should hold all teenagers accountable for their decisions. That is why nothing ever gets better. We never hold them accountable. Why else do you think underage girls continue to screw older men. There is no downside for them.

We should release all the underage people who made poor decisions. After all, there is no difference. A decision is a decision.

This is a subject close to my heart. I know a young boy spending 30 years in prison for a bad decision and he was held fully accountable. I know a young girl who had sex with a much older man and she initiated everything, yet she is not held accountable for anything. It is hypocrisy in its ultimate form. Until you see the suffering of a person in prison, you have no idea of the damage hypocrisy does in this world.

It was up to the old man to not exploit her. How have you missed this point? Your perspective of the man being the victim is worrying.

What victim? The victim chose to do something. Are you a victim if you choose to do things? If so, you have no concept of personal responsibility.

Then on top of that you are assuming the choice resulted in a negative consequence.

When I was underage, I slept with an older person and nothing was negative about it. So please just stop it. Not everyone is a victim in this world.

By the way, there are tons of girls who are teenage moms from boys their own age. Having sex with someone your own age does not ensure that you will be treated well.

But I am sure that you are an advocate of releasing the over 300,000 juvenile boys in America that are slated to go to prison. Right?
