Rape doesn't always have to be forced. In some cases, people can consent or feel as though they have consented even though they are legally under the age of consent for the area they live in. This means they cannot legally consent, and having sex would be statutory rape.

Rape is different for everyone who experiences it, and only the person who has experienced it can define it for themselves. Yes, legally, it may be considered one thing, but someone may want to define it differently for themselves; we've been discussing that throughout this thread. It isn't up to you, me or anyone else to define this experience. It is up to Cj14.
