It's not a weird age gap, and in fact larger age gaps were and are common.Where it becomes weird is the different stages of life the two are in.Love is love, but laws are laws and sketchy is sketchy.When it comes to statutory rape, sometimes there’s a shade of gray that makes things complicated, but we’re going to try to keep it real. If you’re underage you can’t consent to having sex. It’s not necessarily the violent rape you’re probably thinking of, but it’s still a form of rape.

Yeah, it’s such a faux pas to link to Wikipedia, but they have an extensive list of the age of consent in every single country/state/territory on the planet so there you go.

On one hand, we know this 21 year old, and he is harmless as far as wooing the ladies.

If she wasn't dating him, she would be seeing some horn-dog 17 year old who would be trying for the panties on a regular basis.

Statutory rape is probably–no, definitely–the most controversial topic for you, our readers.

Not something super divisive like abortion or feminism, statutory rape.
