The Jail Bait Wait

[Screencap: “What’s even worse, is people are saying that making two characters date once one of them gets older is called ‘Jail Wait’ (I’m assuming it’s supposed to be like jail bait)? Like it’s a horrible thing for two people to start dating after the younger one finally turns 18.”]

…Jail Wait. Jail Wait. I’m…you know, I can’t say I’m shocked that the discourse has come to this. Like…I’d think, if you cared about respecting boundaries and protecting potentially vulnerable groups, you would APPLAUD any young person of the age of majority who had a prospective romantic partner under the age of majority (but obviously having hit puberty and so you know…like…a sexually mature body) and decided to wait. Like. That saves everyone potential legal trouble and is rather respectful of boundaries. Like would they rather…people…not? Wait? For everything to be 100% legally kosher? And how would they parse different age of consent laws? Just….wow…..what the fuck.

Glad I have never been interested in sexual or romantic relationships, that stuff is too complicated. Oy vey…

Except that’s not what ‘Jail Bait Wait’ means. It refers to predatory adults waiting for children to come of legal age (i.e. a 30-year-old waiting for a 12-year-old to turn 18 so they can legally have sex with them).

Normally, I would give you the benefit of the doubt, but considering you’ve confessed to fantasizing about adults molesting children and teens (and labeled yourself an ‘underage kink-haver’), it looks like you’re deliberately using the wrong definition.

Also, the age of consent isn’t universally 18. Depending on where someone lives, the age of consent could be as low as 13 years old. According to your logic, it would be okay for a pedophile to sleep with a 13-year-old because they’re of legal age.
