I've come to the conclusion that many things are more relative than what I initially thought. For example, a few weeks ago it made the news in San Diego that a 26-year-old coach at a school had with 17-year-old student. I was like "so what!" I bet he was considered a "child predator" (which I think is a retarded term). I don't understand why people become aghast or infuriated when there is an age difference in a relationship. The fact that one's lungs are older than someone else's is of no significance. In othere countries, a relationsihp consisting of a 15-year-old woman and an older man would attract no attention. She is a woman as biology dicates. Either biology is wrong or society needs to reformulate it's perception of what is and what is not okay. The same applies to men. What I have noticed about the US is that society (or those in charge of instilling social behavior) tries to force adults to become children. For example, referring to adults in their twenties (or late teens) as merely children and the creation of stupid laws to reinforce the idea that theses people are kids. This is why we consider 16-year-olds kids. They're socialized to be so. People have too many preconceived notions. I used to be a Christian up until two years ago and since then have formulated my own beliefs, including morality.
