As a Mother, I think that the legal age of consent should be 18, 17 at the least. We are all aware that some girls do look for attention and it's for lots of reasons, lacking at home, other issues, etc..
It doesn't change the fact that a full grown man having sex with a 16 year old girl is just disgusting.
Even if they look or act older, a girl of 16 really is still a kid.
If a adult has sex with a underage girl/boy & gets busted they will pay the price big time + have to register as a sex offender for life.
Yes many underage teen girls dress provacative & slutty but ignore them & move on.
The legal age of consent is 18 in ca & i have seen more then my share of teen girls barely wearing anything. I just feel these are teen girls craving for attention & approval.

If the female is over 12, the status applies on The avg legal age of consent in the u.s is 16 yrs.
Due to the internet & men traveling out of state or in state to meet 14/15 yr old girls/boys 14 is not legal anymore like it was in hawaii & idaho.
If the female is over 12, the status applies on Eventually,it will because the kids growing up have less connection to religious beliefs...that will be the key in the next 50 years to altering the us.
Actually if you didn't have the deep south and portions of the midwest, the us would be a moderate left of center nation. Due to the internet & men traveling out of state or in state to meet 14/15 yr old girls/boys 14 is not legal anymore like it was in hawaii & idaho.
