    So what’s the situation hes 21 shes 17? Not exactly a child molester. If the other party is like 15 I see where the line is being crossed but your ordering castration four a person in which you dont know the situation. I dont either just trying to get you to THINK a bit. I know many adult couples with 5+ years between them. Is one of them a pervert?
