This piece principally addresses younger men/older women. In the reverse, younger women often pay a high price. Fact is, this duality holds legally throughout the world, except in the USA where prudishness and PC mentality, mainly by bourgeois feminists, have so muddled the issue that any assertion of sexual differentiation is denounced as “inequality.” This is as absurd as regarding all humans, from toddlers to seniors, as “equal” to satisfy that mentality—demanding that all serve in the frontlines without distinction or preference. Clearly that wouldn’t fly, would it? And it would not because in some cases, it’s not so much a question of equality as differences dictated by biology. Legislating with impartiality for all of society is tricky business, but some distinctions need to be observed or else the law becomes idiotic and persecutory.

Name the country:
The land where harmless sex is deemed criminal while real crimes and obscenities, including murder and grand theft through agents of the state and endless unjustifiable wars, are regarded as legal and “normal”.
Yes, folks, it’s our beloved America, which started its life with a huge injection of religious zealots and never quite shook the disease. Today, religiosity and its fallout cast a long shadow on American culture and law. Europe, where much of this plague originated when the US was young moved on long ago (America has since received further infusions of reactionism from other benighted cultures), and even in nations with an old formal Catholic or Protestant tradition such as Italy, Britain, Germany and even Spain, religion seldom impacts the larger culture, let alone the law. But not here, where the wedding of obscurantist notions, appalling ignorance and corrupt opportunistic politicians has found a self-perpetuating formula for injecting prudishness into law.
