    it happens to boys in heterosexual relationships too--seemingly too often. Parents dont' like the boyfriend? They report him.

    There was a segment on NPR about this once. They interviewed very nice young men who's lives were ruined. Difficulty finding work because are registered sex offenders. One boy loved children and had wanted to work with them and his life's dream was ruined because he was a "sex offender" for being a few yrs older than his girlfriend. Usually it was the boy not the girl...maybe because he is usually the older one or parents object to daughter's boyfriends more strongly or the state definition of "sex" incudes penetration.
