    You're right. I want to down vote you.

    [–] What is something your partner has done during sex that completely ruined it for you? HostOrganism 34 points ago in AskReddit

    Similar thing happened to me.

    Her (giggling): "This is quite a workout!"

    Me (jauntily): "Just call me 'gym'."

    Her (suddenly motionless): "My dad's name is Jim."

    Awkward pause...

    Me (rolling over): "Cigarette?"

    Glasses usually make people look older. This shot makes him look like a teenager.

    ...in a good way.

    [–] Crossbow plans 1980's HostOrganism 4 points ago in Woodworkingplans

    When I was in shop class in that era you wouldn't get in trouble for making weapons, you'd get instructions.

    ...but you'd get suspended for making pipes or bongs.

    Times change.

    [–] [Serious] Do you personally know a murderer? What were they like? How/why did they kill someone? HostOrganism 1 points ago in AskReddit

    My first real job out of college was as a juvenile parole officer. I was asked to accompany a colleague to an institutional meeting (prehearing meeting with a potential client in lock-up), because I was the only male officer available and none of the female officers would be alone with him. He had killed a girl over a paltry sum (four or five bucks, I forget specifically) and expressed zero remorse. His answer for why he did it was She wasn't going to pay me back". His answer for whether or not he felt bad about it was "Why? Idin't really know her."

    When we walked in he was sitting at the table with his hands in his lap looking at the door, shirt buttoned all the way up, hair slicked back, back ramrod straight. He made eye contact as I walked through the door. His papers, pencils, and ID were on the table in front of him, perfectly aligned, perfectly spaced. His voice was flat, and without affect, and there was seriously nobody home behind his eyes.

    He was the first actual sociopath I'd ever met.

    Years later I saw "Silence of the Lambs" in the theater. The scene where you first see Hannibal almost made me wet myself, they nailed him so perfectly. I was terrified by that movie from that point on.

    I'm not here to change your mind.

    Your recent comment history says otherwise.

    Self awareness isn't your strong suit I guess.

    It's not technically "mental capacity", it's processing ability combined with life experience. As for science, I thought I made it clear: frontal lobe development. Did you want a link, or can you google it?

    As far as "grasping the totality", I shouldn't have to point out that sex isn't just "sex", and that there's a whole lot more in the way of social, cultuiral, personal, and biochemical content wrapped up in it. If I do need to point that out then either nature or nurture has left you short staffed.

    I apologize if this sounds snarky and dismissive: I was going for light and slightly humorous and realize I may have missed the mark, but don't want to take the time and effort to rewrite it. I got shit to do.

    Me.

    Feel free to deny it but my experience and your version of events don't gibe, so I'm going with my experience since you have a clear and recent history of making statements that don't correspond to facts.

    When it comes right down to it, if it really was an honest question and not a statement disguised as a question, why didn't you simply Google it instead of asking?

    If you really just wanted to know, Googling makes more sense. Posing a question as a comment instead of looking it up for yourself seems like a passive-aggressive statement, and the way you have extensively and defensively argued the point tends to support that perception.

    TL/DR: Just let it go, man.

    Edit: sorry, assumed you were u/damatovg7. Please change all second-person pronouns above to third-person.

    You're looking for a definitive answer for what is essentially a social construct. You don't see it as creepy and even though a majority of people might you aren't likely to change your opinion on it.

    For me it (maturity) comes down to experience and emotional development. For the first part, someone in or fresh out of high school doezn't have anywhere near the real world experience of someone in their mid twenties. This is especially true in the US where the drinking age is 21. Without getting in to the question of 'what about non-drinkers', being legally able to drink has a broad effect on one's experienced reality. For he second part, there actually us a biological/neurological component. The part of your brain (frontal lobe) responsible for decision making, behavioral control, reward/reaction formulation, and interpretation of emotional content isn't fully formed until your mid twenties. This means the playing field simply isn't level. It's like gambling with someone without the mental capacity to understand the rules, process non-verbal cues, recognize a bluff, or engage in risk assessment; basically it's like stealing. One could even argue whether consent is realistically possible between a teenager and someone in their thirties given the assymetry of understanding.

    Also, if you're 25 and your family/social group/tribe normalizes 40-something men perving on teenage girls, that's going to effect both your experience and your development. Hint: that shit ain't right.

    Isn't he? Sometimes I think half of reddit is on the spectrum.

    [–] My mate broke his leg so I went to see him at home. HostOrganism 3 points ago in Jokes

    Yes, and wanting to have sex with a teenager if you're old enough to be the parent of a teenager is fucking creepy.

    Technical point: u/Jockey79 is actually incorrect here: the only countries in Europe with an age of consent over 16 are Cyprus, Ireland, and Malta. In most European countries it is between 14-16. The average is actually lower than 16.

    You are incorrect in that in most of Europe the age of consent is 16 and below, which means that a 19 year old can legally have sex with a 17 year old.

    This is also true in the US where the most common age of consent is 16, and many states have a "close in age" exclusion.

    Did the search on Google to pull up Bahrain as the answer. Did not know until now

    Edit after being schooled like a tool.

    [–] My mate broke his leg so I went to see him at home. HostOrganism 0 points ago in Jokes

    You were misinformed because the age of consent is 21 in Bahrain.

    It's 20 in South Korea.

    In the US the age of consent is 18 in only 11 states; the most common age of consent in the US is 16 (31 states and DC), and in the other 10 states it's 17. This gives an average of 16.9, which puts the US lower than Mexico, Panama, Chile, Argentina, Cyprus, Malta, Ireland, Turkey, Iraq, India, Vietnam, Mali, Ivory Coast, Egypt, and most of East Africa.

    You're a dick because you were misinformed and didn't bother to inform yourself. It would have taken you literally seconds.

    Ok, you're going to need to explain that one to me.
