My girl not allowed to eat honey nut cheerios. What the fuck she tryna do? Lower her cholesterol, live longer than me and find another nigga? Shiiiitt.
okay look dude I know you don’t want to hear this
but you are 19 years old and you are dating someone who is 5 years younger than the age of consent in america. If you don’t think you’re going to at least get weird looks when you tell people this, I have some news for you.
but in time she’ll be 23 when he’s 29, number doesn’t really matter because of ageing and all, maybe just the timing?
the problem isn’t the age gap, I mean shit there was about a 5 year age gap between my step father and mother. It’s not the most extreme example but whatever.
The problem is that it’s a 19 year old legal adult dating a middle school aged child.
The probably with age difference in adolescent relationships is the rate of development. I agree that past the age of 24, a 5 head age difference isn’t a huge deal. But between 12 and 24 is when people are going through the hugest development. A 13 year old and a 19 year olds brain chemistry doesn’t even work the same. I’m not saying they couldn’t get along, but the hormone difference there is extremely significant.
I mean, you wouldn’t set a 2 year old up on a playmate with a 7 year old.
5 years is almost half of a 13 year olds life. The higher the age difference is compared to the age of the younger party is important.
My dad graduated from school when my mum was -born-
that’s real fuckin neato but the age difference isn’t the problem, the problem is that a legal fucking adult is dating somebody who should be in middle school like what is so difficult to grasp about this concept.
Ugh, why is everyone judging this relationship? You know nothing about these people except their age gap!
I’d like to point out that you reblogged this and mentioned the age gap being the problem when, on the response I posted literally right above yours, I say that the age gap is not the problem. The problem is IT’S AN ADULT DATING SOMEONE WELL UNDER THE AGE OF CONSENT AND DEFINITELY NOT DEVELOPED ENOUGH TO BE HAVING A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP, ESPECIALLY NOT ONE WITH A LEGAL FUCKING ADULT.
Read. Please read. Go back to school. Learn how to read. Reading comprehension will save your life.
Tumblr, the only place where pedophiles can be defended.
age gaps are fine, provided both parties involved are over the age of consent.
One person is 21 the other is 50? sure yeah go for it.
One person is 13 and the other is 19? Hell no, and i would call the police.
These are simple concepts.
Let me break this all down for you in a way you might understand.
19 year old bangs 13 year old.
Police/parents find out.
19 year old goes to jail for some form of statutory rape.
While sentencing ranges, in many states (for sexual acts between a 13 yr old and 18 or older) the minimum sentence is 10 years in prison.
And here, statutory rape, from Wiki:
"…statutory rape is sexual activity in which one person is below the age required to legally consent to the behavior…
Different jurisdictions use many different statutory terms for the crime, such as sexual assault (SA), rape of a child (ROAC), corruption of a minor (COAM), unlawful sex with a minor (USWAM),carnal knowledge of a minor (CKOAM), unlawful carnal knowledge (UCK), sexual battery or simply carnal knowledge.
In statutory rape, overt force or threat need not be present. Statutory rape laws presume coercion, because a minor… is legally incapable of giving consent to the act.
The term statutory rape generally refers to sex between an adult and a sexually mature minor past the age of puberty…”
I don’t give a fuck how much older your significant other is. My mother is 12 years younger than my stepfather. The difference is that they are both above the minimum legal age.
I know the majority of this website is populated by teens under the age of 18. I know you think age is just a number. In certain cases, it is. But when it comes to a child — because that is what you are until you are 18 — and a person well above the legal max age to be with said child, it is a completely different fucking story.
