Unfortunately, when it comes to sex, we as a society are still subscribing to an older world view of gender double standard.
This old world view is that females are the weaker sex, which are demure could possibly be easily swayed through trickery of the male sexual appetite desires. Us females are supposed to be in control of our urges a whole lot better than a male. We can be easily influenced to mistake our show of love in trade for sex when the superior male has cited, "if you love me, then you will show me how much you love me by sleeping with me". Never would us females even consider employing our precious bodies of sex to manipulate a man as that is simply a man's way of thinking. After all, we are the sweeter, milder creature of the two genders. We are beyond sexual manipulation to get what we want, right?
Of course, with the coming of women's liberation and our way of speaking up for ourselves in how we wish to be a more open sexual creature, it has taken away many of the old society's taboos about our sexual desires and urges. Females are more apt to be sexually advancing than those women of 30 years ago. We are more apt to speak and say what we want from our men and will blatantly pursue it without apology.
This is spilling into now the new term "cougar" where an older woman no longer worries about society's shaking of the head with a tsk, tsk when she parades her younger conquest as much as 20 years her junior for the world to see. In fact, this woman in praised as being comtemporary cutting edge. A sexual innovator. Along has come a woman being more of a sexual predator with no apologies which has spilled into now older women having not only blurred the lines but at times erased them altogether losing their common sense and taking a victim of minor age.
Yes, this young man is equally a victim as much as any minor female in the same scenario.
The problem? Society is still grappling with the knowledge that females are being more sexually open in a predataroy behavior manner and until it does recognize this very problem, minor boys will continue to still be perceived as being simply sexually active pubescent creatures who allowed their hormones get the better of them instead of figuring out a way to control them. After all, women supposedly can get almost any man to sleep with her with just one request vs. a man will have to ask several women before he gets a yes? So why on earth would we want me manipulating a young boy's mind? Although, that is EXACTLY what this older female is doing to this minor male
I saw an interesting question by one of the posters about what is molest?
1. To disturb, interfere with, or annoy.
2. To subject to unwanted or improper sexual activity.
I think improper sexual activity sums up the definition appropriately regardless of age differences between the two involved parties in question
