I don't know where I fall exactly on this issue, because...

...I attended a very small and rural high school where it was not uncommon to find juniors and seniors dating freshman and sophomores. But, with the age of consent in the state of Kansas being 16-years old, if a junior (say 16 or 17-years old) has sex with his girlfriend who is a freshman (say 14 or 15-years old) and even though she consented to wanting to have sex, her parents can still charge the junior with statutory rape or indecent liberties of a child.

And I have seen it happen.
