"Bad thing 1" isn't even a bad thing.
There's nothing wrong with a 30 y/o fucking an 18 y/o. Go up to 20 and it's insane to even entertain the idea that there's anything wrong with the relationship by way of age.
By contrast fucking a child
is absolutely wrong. The kind of petty moral scolding people apply to relationships like those derided in the opening tweet (between someone in their 30s and a college student) becomes comically absurd when you put it in the context of actual rape and child abuse. It makes it all the more obvious just how petty this shit is. It's a pastime to make these idiots feel superior by ridiculing actions which have no real consequence.>>202522
I don't think fucking anyone younger
is fundamentally wrong. A 30 y/o having sex with a college student in their late teens or 20s isn't molesting a minor, it's just sex.
It's not even about vulnerability the way we think about it. If you change it to a 30-year-old having sex with a 10-year-old the problem isn't that the younger partner is "younger" or "naive," it's that they literally haven't hit puberty (or, at best, have barely entered it) yet and are not physiologically ready to process sex the way an adult would. Their capacity to even fully understand what's going on on a basic level is not even comparable. It's so much more wrong on such a fundamental level that it can't be compared to the other thing - and yet it happens all the time to this day, it just isn't happening to people who are dating in college.
