At age 4 or 5, you are considered to be a child, with that being said, children are not supposed to have sex. Technically, according to your state law, it is considered rape because most states say that a child under the age of 12 is not in their mind to consent to such things. Even at the age of 12 or 15, you are still considered to be a child and that is why there are such things as statatory rape, just because you may have consented does not mean it is right. From what I read you were not a consenting partner anyways and was manipulated into doing it. Unfornately, I hate to say it, but I doubt you will be the last one if something is not done to prevent it from happening to someone else.
