Anyone else think it should be a crime even for underage boys to have sexual relations with underage girls?

Young girls are vulnerable and they are constantly being taken advantage of, not only by adult men, but also by boys their own age. I think that if we are actually committed to protecting young girls, we should make a law criminalizing underage males who have sexual relations with any girl under about 17 or 18.

If an underage male wants to have sex, there is no reason why he can't find himself a grown woman to have sex with. If he has no interest in grown women and only wants underage teen girls, then that is a sign that he is a pedophile in the making he belongs in prison. Besides, since there is a power imbalance between men and women, relationships between adult women and underage boys can be said to be more equal than those when they are both adults. So it is also better for the adult women. How can you be a feminist while opposing policies which protect women?
