Just thought I’d share this article with you guys! I can’t be bothered to write anything else really.
But I did find out something interesting today. I thought that 16 was the age of consent. Well…it is but it just means that relationships between adults that are in a position of superiority and children are not allowed. But what if you were over the age of 18 and you weren’t in a position of trust?
“It is an offence under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 for a person over 18 to have a sexual relationship with a child under 18 where that person is in a position of trust in respect of that child, even if the relationship is consensual. That applies where the child is in full-time education and the person works in the same place as the child, even if the person does not teach the child.”
