#26 Not all of us are like this! I'm 14 and I have never even held a guys hand. This FML just makes me sad though. I believe your body and mind is not ready to engage in sexual activity at an age as young as 13. Sorry OP.

Same. I'm 14 too and a lot of people have boyfriends at my school, and they actually think I'm secretly lesbian because I prefer to focus on my school work. I strongly dislike my generation...

92, Just cause someone has a boyfriend or girlfriend at that age doesn't mean they're going all the way. In fact, most of them aren't. At least thats how it was 10 or 11 years ago when I was 13 or 14.

54- well, the Romans thought it was perfectly fine for a girl to get married and have babies by 13. Then again, life expectancy was in the 40's so... The more you know. These tidbits are fascinating.

The Romans also kept slaves and considered rape to be a part of plundering when they captured a city. Not to mention feeding people to lions for entertainment. Hardly the moral authority to be quoting.

209, Regardless of the practices you stated, back then in most parts of the world, that was the norm. Physically, a boy's and girl's bodies are capable of childbirth. And, due to the shorter life expectancy as was stated, they had to get married and start a family earlier than what we're used to in order to compensate for it.

209- Hardly the moral authority to be quoting? You must tell that to the Europeans and Americans who still emulate that society. Both Europeans and Americans had slaves. That rape was occurred during plundering is true, and still today we have that action in our marriage rights: the man carrying the woman through the threshold is from the Rape of Lucretia. As for the feeding people to lions, it was two parts effective. Only criminals fought and participated in the gladiatorial events, and it served as public entertainment to make the plebeians happy. Besides, gladiators could fight for their freedom as well. Morally that may seem wrong to just kill off criminals like that, but look at our prison system today where it costs millions to keep prisoners. I was not suggesting that teenage girls go out and get married and have children by 13, I was just stating that indeed the human body is, and has been, capable of such things by 13.

157- I realize that just because you have a boyfriend/girlfriend it doesn't mean that you're going all the way. I'm just saying that I'm only a year older than OP's daughter, and I won't even date, let alone go all the way. :)

#208 I know this wasn't the point of your post but technically the life expectancy was only 40 because that was an average since a lot of people died in childhood. If you made it past childhood there was a good chance you would make it to your 60s.

Hey no worries, I am also 17 with no romantic experience. It doesn't even bother me the slightest bit because It is by choice. Many guys have showed interest in me but I feel like I am young and don't want to waste my time giving guys a shot when I feel nothing for them. Out of all the guys I have ever met or laid eyes on, only one has ever caught my attention.

@205, of course you're going to defend the people your age. Why do people your age feel the need to be in 'deep' relationships. Frankly, it's quite hilarious for others to watch you edit your profile pics together and declare your undying love for each other after an hour of making it 'official' by changing your relationship status on Facebook.

Honestly, I had the opportunity to lose my virginity at age 13. I came really close to it, but no matter how much I wanted to be in that situation, I chickened out. Why? Because the man was 40 years old and wanted to meet me for sex. Who knows what could have happened? He was a pedophile. I reported him to the FBI instead. The reason I am saying this is: Op, it could have been a lot worse. She most likely had sex with someone her own age. Just think how much worse it would be if the man was much older than her. She should've waited, that's true, but as long as she doesn't engage in other risky activities, and promises to wait a few years before trying to have sex, then it's not that bad. Make sure she knows to be safe and watch for warning signs of rape. I mean it's a scary thought, but knowing before it happens can save her in the future. Just in case. This world is fucked up. Why deny It?

88, He was referring to this particular situation, not everything in general. Her being honest about losing her virginity at a ridiculously young age isn't going to reverse it. That's the point he was trying to make.

#3 - Doesn't drink? You reckon? Given that she wanted a Daquiri and had no idea what a "virgin" cocktail was, I think we can safely say that her sobriety is likely to be going the way of her virginity....

105, I knew what a strawberry Daiquiri was when I was that age, and didn't know that it was called 'virgin' when it didn't have alcohol in it, and I never drank alcohol and I still don't.

Actually sex at a young age can be very bad for you both for your mental and physical development. A girl is capable of sex from a very young age. In the 1930's a five year old girl in South-America gave birth to a son (who was also her half-brother). This is an extreme case but you can not say that she was ready for this or the sexual act that was forced on her. Likewise a thirteen year old child is not ready to have sex. It can mess up how she perceives it and can stunt her pubescent growth.

159, what an ironic username....puberty does NOT mean children are ready for sex (not for baby producing anyway, which seems to be your reason here). In some countries it's common to marry girls off to older guys as soon as they have their period. They fall pregnant and, guess what? A good number of them die during childbirth because, although they've had their period, their bodies still aren't ready for that.

201 wtf do you think puberty does in a woman if it doesnt prepare the body to carry children. by 15 years old i was fully developed, physically at least, as a woman aa were most of my female classmatew. im not saying that makes sex ok as soon as you are physically capable but think about the age of consent. its 16 where i am from, some people are ready at 15 some are not ready until 17, 18 or even 21 but an age has been picked where most are deemed physically ready.

First off, all generations have their flaws. Secondly, human nature does not dictate this aspect of how we act, that is determined by how we are raised. So basically, most of the children in my generation are stupid fools, but you are the ones who raised them to be like that.

For most of human history, girls would have been married and pregnant by 13 or 14. It's not just young people now, it's young people for all of human history.

Reply

Actually, 15 was the age old standard, with boys entering apprenticeships at 13 and marriage expected once they knew enough of their trade to provide for a wife.

Reply

On average, throughout history boys were usually older than the girls they were married to. Girls were bargaining chips for their parents, and as a result they had little to no need for education or work in their parent's eyes. Boys did, however, as they were the providers and had to have achieved something before they were deemed "worthy" enough by the parents to marry their daughter.

#139, people were NOT dying at an average age of 30-50, especially not people in your grandma's generation. This has got to be my biggest pet peeve about misunderstood history and you just inflated it ridiculously. Any statistics you see declaring 30 to be an average lifespan (which is usually applied to the Middle Ages, not the freaking 1940s) are factoring in young babies' deaths. Lots of kids died young, but generally if you made it past toddlerhood, you were good to go for another 60-ish years. Sorry to go off topic, I was just astounded by the ignorance being spouted here.

I'm 13 yeah I've had a boyfriend but not really serious. I wouldn't dare have sex; while we like to think we are grown up we're still children and children shouldn't have sex. Enough said.

You realize that before society deemed the teenage years too.young to have sex (which I totally agree with, btw), people In past civilizations were married by that age? I'm js, it's bad, but not a damnable offense

It's the kids decision actually... Her dad couldn't be like IF YOU HAVE SEX I WILL SHOOT THE MAN YOU HAD IT WITH! Even if he did then she would've done it just to piss him off. Teenagers aren't exactly known for listening to authority figures very well.

In Canada, as long as the partner was not over the age of 18, its legal (the age of consent is 16, with close in age laws for persons under 16). Over 18, that nets u the charge of sexual interference of a person under 16 years of age.

Reply

#177- Actually, in most states, age is only an issue with an age gap over 2-5ish years. Even so, they won't care, they will do it anyway. parents can only press charges if their kids are under age of consent and they are over the maximum age limit for the state.
