"The question, "why would a 38 yr old man seduce a 16 yr old girl?" These words are very emotionally charged. Man makes him sound mature and powerful, seducing makes him sound like a magician that can manipulate females somehow, and girl makes her seem immature and irresponsible."
"This 38 yr old male is just interested in younger females."
How was this mis interpreted?
The words "Jus interestedt" implies, simply interested. Almost as if there is a shoulder shrug in there. Or "oh-well". Such is life.
OK, what would you call a 38 yr old male?
Whay would you call a 16 yr old female?
And what would you call it when a 38 yr old male has sex with a 16 yr old female?
Keep in mind that the brain does not stop developing until the early twenties. Therefore, as society shows, many young people are not capable of good decisions or oppropriate actions. Binge drinking, drugs, sexual promesquity and experimentaion, that came comes back to haunt them in the future. "Girls gone wild".
In this world today, it is the adults (38 yr old) job to advise and protect the children (16 yr old).
The answer you gave, "This 38 yr old male is just interested in younger females" is weak.
