This topic is NOT about Pedophiles!

Now I know that the US has gotten a little touchy on the topic of sex offenders... But my question is: Would you consider a guy (or girl) who is 17 (or the legal age of adulthood in whatever state you happen to live in) and is dating a 16 year old, and they have sex. Is he (or she) a sex offender?
Unfortunately according to the eyes of the law they are. and they have to be registered as a sex offender and face a considerable disadvantage for the rest of their life.

Do you think that's Right?
Do you think that someone in that situation should be considered a sex offender?
Should there be special situation laws for people in those types of situations?

Now I agree with the registered sex offenders law for pedophiles, and for rapists.
However, even if they have commited those crimes, is it fair that everyone in the country can go online and see what they have done?
Is there a substandard in the US for criminals who have commited sex related crimes?


Another topic as well
(didn't want to make two topics for this since they are sort of related.)

Clergy (as in catholic preists and the such) having sexual relationships with thier parishioners... what are your opinions on those?
Should they be completely stripped of thier right to work in a relgious atmostphere?
Should they be listed on the sex offenders website?
Should they be allowed to continue with only a smack on the back of the hand as punishment?
Are they above the law because they are a priest?

What do you think?

are you sure that 17/16 age difference is correct? i thought it was 18.
i think that if there is more than a three year difference for a 18 year old it should be illegal. 18 year olds don't need to find a guy/girl that is three years younger than him/her.
and the clergy in sexual relationships should have their title stripped away because of their religion. they have to practice what they preach. and unless the girl is under 18 then nobody outside the church should know.

in most states in the US the legal age for sexual contact is 17, there are still a few states where it is 18. I apologise for the confusion.

lokita... similar, but i think i'm asking questions on a specific instance, rather than a general info gathering topic. To me this is something different than pedophiles.
Perhaps I should edit out the clergy part. But I think that the instance of sex offenders should be changed. I think that Laws don't allow for the people who are in the above situation. Which IMHO isn't a pedophile. If I'm 17 and I'm screwing my boyfriend and he's 16, i shouldn't be considered a pedophile for that, he's my boyfriend for crying out loud. (BTW - not i'm not actually 17.. it's hypothetical)
What i'm trying to get at is, the laws seem a little harsh for certain situations. At least I think so.
I'm not saying really anything about pedophiles. But if you consider a year difference in a relationship a pedophile, then i guess your link would be correct.

Pedophile means an adult screwing around with a minor right? at 17 you are not legally an adult and thus I don't think should be put into the sex offenders category.

hmm in austria or germany, kids may have sex from 14th birthday... but not with an adult, which is at the age of 18 and above...
but in that case i don't think its wrong having sex with a 17/16 y old when you are 17/16
but the reality is, ithink, that not only in the US, kids have sex yt tehy early teen ages...

That's "penal colony". Yes, about 200 years ago Australia was settled (some would say invaded) as a penal colony for England.

Not only that, but the age of consent here is 16. Anyone can have sex with a 16 year old as long as both parties are willing and one of them isn't a teacher or something. Below 16 I think there is a 2 year leeway eg a 16 year old can legally have sex with a 14 year old and no, I don't know what the lower limit is, I think it is 12, which I think is way too young. Not that we want any of your sex offenders here

Do you think that's Right? no
Do you think that someone in that situation should be considered a sex offender? definitely no
Should there be special situation laws for people in those types of situations? there shouldnt be a law for two teens to be togther but I get what u mean...

Now I agree with the registered sex offenders law for pedophiles, and for rapists.
However, even if they have commited those crimes, is it fair that everyone in the country can go online and see what they have done? yes I think it is, its a way to keep it from happening again, kind of helps the criminals to less temptation
