Having spend almost 7 years in UK I am sad to say that if an over 30 years old guy was to have a relationship with a 17-year-old girl many would call him a paedophile. If you agree with that, then with all due respect you are stupid as well as ignorant and I would strongly urge you to seek further education! A paedophile is a person who is sexually attracted to PREpubescent children, not almost-adults. Funnily enough if an over 30-year-old woman had a relationship with a 17-year-old boy she’d most likely be called cougar.
The math would suggest that many of the people who would be eager to call a guy that, are mothers of teenage daughters crazy in love with Edward Cullen from the Twilight saga. Chances are you have seen his face at some magazine or Bus stop or Street ad. Tall, slim with a melancholic look. He may look like a normal 18-year-old boy to you but looks can be deceiving! Look closer and you’ll see that underneath his purposefully disheveled hair and sparkly skin hides a 120 year old “pervert” who is sexually attracted to a 17-year-old Bella! What a SHOCK!
No, not because he is sexually attracted to her. I mean, look at her! Who can blame him… Shock because nobody seems to care or notice that he really is 120 years old as long as he looks 17, because, after all, that is all that matters. Right? If a 30-year-old man allegedly tries to take advantage of an allegedly immature 17-year-old girl it’s reason enough to stigmatize him, unless said man looks like 18. Then for some magical reason he is not really trying to take advantage of her but really loves her.
That makes sense!
