    Even sixteen tear olds can distinguish rape at gunpoint from consensual sex.

    Why are war casualty counts "American troops" and "others" but never "human beings"?

      I sadi they weren't on the same developmental level as adults.

      So rape and consensual sex and all the ramifications involved are understood in a different way from the way most adults understand.

      And while I think time and aging will improve their understanding, I think the odds of that happening in an adult prison for men are low.
