Different social norms. In those times you weren't considered unable to make decisions, have sex, or fall in love before the age of 21. Its quite clear in the world today that 16 year olds also become aroused and also fall in love. Yet if i fell in love with a 16 year old, despite being only a few years older myself, i would be an immoral perverted pedophile who is taking pleasure from suffering. You are the stupid one here.
