It is scientific fact that the vast majority of adolescents and teenagers lack the emotional maturity to make sound sex decisions (bad enough with people their own age). Society has judged adults can and should know better and are thus taking advantage of the situation - therefore it is NOT considered consensual.
With respect to Maxwell, most of the girls recruited in the FL case were from broken homes and low income households. That also makes it extra disgusting because people like Maxwell and her helpers have a nose for vulnerability.
The vast majority of sixteen years old aren't hookers.
If those who are mostly come from dysfunctional families one has to ask:
Does the shared genetic or the environment lead to the girls' choice to be hooker?
There is one opinion that women with borderline often faced sexual abuse. In Germany there were lots of women who got raped by Russian soldiers. Did many of them develop borderline? I had a neighbor who as adolescent had to flee from Eastern part of Germany. She often hinted about rape, moreover her mother didn't make it. I would be surprised if she was borderline.
Now what type of people rape or otherwise abuse their daughter/ sister/ cousin? I assume those with antisocial personality disorder.
As antisocial/ histrionic/ narcissistic and borderline personalities cluster in families an increased probability of sexual abuse of women with borderline can also be genetically explained. I anyway doubt this rape hypothesis. But if true, I rather tend to genetic explanations.
Similarly 16 years old prostitutes may have a genetic component for their choice which also explains their dysfunctional background.
I do agree sex with a 16 year old prostitute has to be punished.
But it is nowhere as bad as rape.
And sex with a 16 year old prostitute is nowhere as bad as sex with a 16 year old which is meant as a serious relationship if the man is let's say more than 10 years older.
Normal girls of course deserve protection.
That’s not how it works in the US - statutory rape is rape, whether the girl was prostituting herself or not. It’s not like the girls were ‘operating’ freelance, with polished online profiles and the like. They were roped in and trained by adults - that is exploitation.
Also you may want to clarify your words because as written things sound pretty sick - don’t ALL minor girls deserve protection? When you say only ‘normal’ girls do, it sounds like those with mental illness or developmental disorders don’t deserve any...
