but who isn't at 17

anonymous asked:

If Mare was 17 when she kissed Cal, who is 19, isn't that statutory rape?

I mean… yes?… I had to read up on this law and the details here: http://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/statutory-rape.html. But why is everyone so fascinated with the idea that he raped her… in anyway possible? Ya’ll over here looking like you’re about to take him into court or something. XD
