Stop discrimination in age of consent

Comment 10th July 2010

We have a ridicuous situation in the UK whereby a man of 19 can get a girl of 15 pregnant and a whole body of authorities work to help them with the child, throw money at them in benefits and offer them all the assistance they can but if the same age man has sex with a boy of 15 he is branded a sex offender, put on the sex offenders list and faces the possibility of jail.  Why?

Why does this matter?

Bringing parity in the law will remove the ambiguity and stop discrimination.  The age of consent for both sexes is 16 so if someone has sex 'under the legal age' should be treated the same way or is the govt going to admit it is homophobic
