Im just going by what you said. Which is that MOST 12 year olds don't know how to clean their room. Based on the 12 year old I know I disagree and yes, feel sad for the inept little being that you know as 12 year olds. Their parents must suck, like you say. I don't know why that bothers you. I find it sad and very "the kids these days" grandpa-ish. Most of the kids I know are truly pretty capable and I respect them.
I missed the last several days of this as I was out of town, but I did want to add a few things.
I do not think it is just the same for a 40 year old man to sleep with a minor as it is for an 18 year old to sleep with a minor, however they are both just as illegal and both should be illegal in my opinion.
Years ago young teenagers did have a lot more responsibility than they do now. I do not know if 9 year old's used to be ship captains, but I do know that most girls were married with homes of their own as young teenagers. Even in my parents generation, many were married by 18.
Well, that's a pretty stupid thing to do. If I were her parents or lawyer, I'd be pushing for a mental health evaluation. Something's not right with that girl.

I'm so late to this debate, but I agree with Melissa that I am totally unhorrified by the idea of a senior dating a freshman, whether we are talking about boys or girls, and think it's crazy that they would be labeled a "sex offender" over that.
On the other hand, this girl does seem like she has a problem since apparently she just can't stay away.
