Does this qualify as rape?

When i was 22 or 23, over 20 years ago, I had a girlfriend who was 16 to 17 that I was sexually active with. It was legal due to age of consent. I recently had a conversation with a person on the internet that thinks I committed rape with this girl. What happened was this. We were having anal sex. I note that in case it matters. She said something about wanting to stop and I told her something about just waiting and laying there. So obviously not very nice and disgusting of me. I continued on for about half a minute until it was over. Feel free to be candid. It's not my proudest moment so I get it. But this person on the internet thinks that I could still be prosecuted in the United States. If I raped someone then I would even consider coming forward and possibly taking responsibility. But I don't think that she's right. Maybe I'm wrong. Let me know what you think or know about this. Considering statute of limitations there is none for actual rape in the state it took place. But that is for rape.

  • I don't really care about the laws of any country with regard to sexual intercourse with a minor.

    The US is known for bending the laws to suit everyone.

    Now, you being an adult and her a child at the time of the rape, you were actually not only raping a person but at the same time, you had sexual intercourse with a child and you know the term for those people, right?

    The United Nations defines a child as a human being that has not reached his/her 18th. birthday and since the victim was 16 or 17, she was a child. End of story.

    • By no means is that the end of the story. People usually say that when their argument doesn't hold a lot of weight. No offense but hear me out. The Law's the law and the law of the UN does not determine the laws and sovereign nations. That's just reality. Fuck the globalist UN leftist filth anyway. Half of them are pedophiles and encourage it if anything. If there's any end to a story that's it. But the laws of my state apply. So it was legal in regards to age. I understand that you may disagree with the law but that is what prevails. Even if I disagreed with the laws set, they still determine what people can and cannot do. There is really no way around that.

    • Amen...

  • I don't know why you'd ask people on here and not research yourself!!!
    most people have no idea how age of consent works. secondly, in your case, it differs by state.
    the statute of limitations does not always have limitations... which means you can be charged no matter how much time has passed. even with limitations, courts follow precedents. So, even if a limitation is in place, you can still be charged.


    I find it hypocritical of, well, everyone how they're quick to throw the age of consent law into a conversation and then turn around and blow the speed limit, and cheat on their taxes.
    if you appeal to the law, it's all or nothing. not only when it suits you

    • The law is not written in a way that it is so easy to tell. It wouldn't matter anyway. The reason I ask is to see how people feel about it. Often that determines the real meaning surrounding an event.

  • That depends on the law in the relevant jurisdiction, even in the unlikely event it isn’t past the statute of limitations. I don’t see how it would be prosecuted, though, without a complaining witness and without physical evidence.

  • If she told you that she wanted to stop and you didn't, I'd qualify that as rape.

    • I appreciate the direct and honest reply. Without any need for nastiness in between. Sincerely mean that. I'm not being facetious. Sometimes people need to put a handle on there emotions. They can still make their point without insulting. In reality their opinion is worth a lot more if they don't act emotionally or in a way that looks uncontrolled or reeks of "crazy"..

  • I don’t get involved with tricky situations like that it’s very very complicated and all the details have to be laid out exactly perfectly

  • That is not rape

    There's nothing worng with it. She should've had said stop before.
