If a 13 year old can consent to lie about her age and put herself off as an 18 year she should be held responsible. If they are going to hold people accountable for knowing someone’s true age when the look older than they are then the US should require you to carry an
ID card from the time you are 12 years old. This is because girls today are dressing and developing sooner than before. I have always taught my son to look out for younger girls, but it never crossed my mind that girls were lying about their age.
