Do you think this is wrong or okay?

I talked to one guy who was in his thirties and having sex with 17 year old neighbourhood boys. It was legal but still a big difference. He hasn't told anyone about it but I am sure people were suspicious, not sure if people knew.

What would you do if it was happening in your neighbourhood?

  • To each their own. If it's not illegal, and he's not raping them or anything (consensual), what business is it of mine? And even if I did care, there's nothing I can do about it, so why concern myself with it?

    • Would I think "less" of him as a person, again, assuming this is consensual, no. Like I say, not my business, but that's his "thing" I guess lol. I wouldn't "judge" him for it as a person. To me it would be like if someone was into BDSM, it's their fetish, we all have them. Doesn't necessarily make them a "bad" person.

  • I suppose since it was legal it was okay because it seemed like it was mutual and consensual

  • Unless it was happening with my 17 year old SON, it would be none of my business, especially since it is legal seeing as this is the age of consent in your area.

    There are always cradle robbers with women and men. This guy is clearly looking for "nearly" jailbait. I would be very wary if it were my kid, but all you can do is advise. You can't stop legal sexual interactions.

  • That is technically illegal as they’re underage. Don’t know how far the law would go to prosecute him but parents would be protective of their teenage sons being groomed by an older man. Also it does depend on how long he was doing this for, was he grooming, waiting and targeting boys? It kinda sounds like yes because he’s been with multiple boys

    • Learn to read

    • Yes well I’m not sure how it’s legal when the boys are underage. Also, my questions stand on how long it’s happening, was it grooming, does he have past offences. I wouldn’t want someone like that in my neighbourhood

    • 17 is age of consent in most countries

  • Unless I was approached to intercede by one of the 17 yr olds. its NONE of MY business. Obviously 'pregnancy' is not an issue. STD's would be the only concern that, and romantic entanglements which are AGAIN, none of MY business~ :O

    • Even if there was risk of pregnancy how would it matter?

  • Honestly I think he's disgusting..
    It is certainly NOT legal in Australia as he is over 21 , Id put him in.

    • It is legal

    • Not in Australia its not They need to be over 18 , as he is over 21. Here in Thailand it probably is however , I will never know.

    • So what if it was legal

  • If this is legal then it is their own personal responsibility to beware of the consequences they may face later on.

  • Unless one of the young adults calls it rape, there's really nothing that can be done. Maybe report it to the patents, but that's it.

    • Exactly

  • Since it's not illegal then I'd say you are a busy body who needs to mind her own business.

  • If its legal its none of my business.

  • While their is a huge age difference, if its legal then its not in my rights to stop them. Yes, if they have sexual relation that is a little extreme then I would interfere. But other than that, I don't have any right to tell them stop and honestly, if it is consensual I wouldn't even bother with them because its nothing wrong.

    • They are having sex, I made it clear

    • So what would you do

    • I wouldn't do anything, they want to have sex, thats their choice

  • I just shared an opinion regarding this. In this case, I would talk to both the guy and the man, and i'd make sure that whatever the young man is doing, is doing so in a fully conscious way.

    • So you think its OK?

    • It would be oK if 1. its legal 2. the kid is doing so in a totally subconscious way and he's not being pressured in any way Also, how big is a diff between a 17 and 18yo guy?

    • There are 2 guys, and he seduced them. Is it OK?

  • Well, in America the woman could get in trouble, I would maybe make an anonymous and let law enforcement know about her and what she's doing

    • It's a man and law couldn't do anything if its legal

  • I think that homosexuality is an aberration that is destructive to individuals and corrosive to society.
    So, I do not approve of an adult homosexual working his way through the young men of a neighbourhood.
    Teenage males have a special vulnerability, which older homosexuals exploit.
    I experienced this.
    I was a borderline incel until I was almost 30. When I was a teenager, I was an incel, in the strict meaning of the term (involuntarily celibate).
    Girls would not speak to me, unless it was to tell me to FOAD. When I approached a girl, I was met with disdain and occasional derision and abuse. Some of the rejections were so savage that, to this day, I have flashbacks whenever I think about approaching a female.
    Kick a dog often enough and he will learn to stay away.
    I was utterly miserable and could not understand why girls did not like me. Thoughts of suicide were not far from my mind. Think of a blond athletic Elliot Roger.
    Into this unhappiness would, from time to time, come an older homosexual. They seem to have a radar for lonely young men who have been romantic/sexual failures with females. They also have a way of appearing out of the mist after a girl has broken a young man's heart.
    The sales pitch that the holder homosexuals use is that they tell the young man that he is homosexual, but has not realised it yet. They will tell him that girls can detect the unrealised homosexuality, which is why they reject the young man.
    I saw this approach work with several young men in my circle. A couple went down the rabbit hole of homosexuality and, to the best of my knowledge, did not return.
    I can say with absolute certainty that the homosexual who is preying upon the male teenagers in the neighbourhood is using that approach and offering sexual favours, which can be tempting to young men whose full and aching testicles need to be drained.

    • Sorry that happened to you but you’ve clearly got other issues

    • @thotmas97 yes he's mentally deranged

    • I agree. Definitely cracked.

  • Wrong! God didn't plan things that way.

    • Oh shut up

    • You first. If you can't accept any possible answer, don't ask the question. Thank you.

    • You are just a homophobe

  • I would do nothing. That's perfectly natural.

    • I missed the part "boys". Well, it's their business.

  • Two things come to mind. In my area he is considered under age and it is illegal. Some areas it is legal. I cannot sat age gap bothers me, because I feel it is just a number, but that young it does bother me. Then again I am only 20

    • So if it was legal what would you do

    • With it being legal there is not much you can do. I would probably see if there is a pattern of it and that world raise a big concern. It will also start to get noticed in it neighborhood

    • What would you think about the guy

  • unfortunately at that age not much you can do because by the time it gets to court he will be 18. Plus child has to corroborate story. Sounds like he is predator though. I personally think it is wrong but if law says ok not much you can do but start petitions.

    • What would you think about him?

    • Would you do anything?

  • The age of consent varies based on what state they live in. I still consider it pedophilia if you have to have sex with someone below legal age, regardless of consent laws.

    But if 17 is the age of consent in whatever state this was in, then I'd begrudgingly say its fine.

  • A lot of what is 'legal' these days is just plain wrong!

    • Well maybe, but that doesn't answer the question

  • Who cares? If it is not in public, it is none of my business.

    • What do you mean public?

    • There would be a word going around in the neighbourhood and you would see them together sometime

    • As long as any intimate actions is personal and private and not in locations that can be seen by others.

  • I'd do nothing. It's legal and none of my business.
