    "What a bunch of sick monkeys that would want to "date" someone that young. Don't they know that 15 will get you 20?"

    I always heard "10 minutes with a 15 year old will get you 20 to life".

    "The eighteen year old may be considered an adult by law, but I think the thirty seven year old is a pedophile."

    Good lord, a pedophile? His girlfriend is of legal age. By definition, he is not a pedophile. A little warped maybe, but an 18 year is in no way, shape, fashion or form, a CHILD.

    Between lecherous teachers and frequent reassignments, homeschooling is starting to sound like a great idea.

    Personally I think there are some very sick individuals out there. Some men think it's cool that they can get the younger girls in bed. My daughter has a eighteen year old friend who is seeing a thirty-seven year old man, who has been married twice and has four children. I often wonder if he will be ok with it when his now five year old daughter comes to him when she is eighteen and tells him that she is dating a forty year old man. The eighteen year old may be considered an adult by law, but I think the thirty seven year old is a pedophile. Just my opinion.
