Fine, but the fact still is that these girls were several grades younger than this boy. And what he did with them was very disturbing. And yes, girls mature faster than boys, but that's more of an emotional development. Young girls dream of romantic love way before boys do. Boys of the same age are just plain horny.

All of your "math" depends on the child's birthday and the regions "cut off" date for school admissions...

Yes, but that may cut in either direction. We're talking about average 14, 12 and 11 year olds, because we don't know what the birthdates are. My numbers are right for most kids, the other poster's were wrong for most kids.

Cruz endorsed the views of the dissenters, Justices Francis Spina and Judith Cowin. Writing for them, Spina noted the boy was a high school student while the girls were elementary school students.

I have to say, 11 and 12 year old girls are not always small and awkward. I've seen some who look much older.

Some areas have junior high schools or middle schools, and some don't. All my elementary schools were K-8.

That's very true, but nito obviously wants to find the most extreme possible representations to bolster her case.

#1 you do not know what sex I am
#2 at the end of the day it doesn't matter what they look like or what grade they are in a 14 year old is light years away from an 11 year old physically and mentally

Yeah, when you don't fill out a profile you run the risk of people not knowing, so no apology is in order.

After YOU brought in the grades (and got them wrong) and YOU posted the photos (which were probably unrepresentative of the case, and didn't impress anyone), now YOU say those things don't matter.

These are all kids, but either all of them should be punished or none of them should.
