    This is abusive. Consent is not possible. The older person should NOT be attracted to a child. The only reason to date a 12 year old is because they are vulnerable to someone older. Because of the power of someone so much older, a 12 year old is not able to consent. NOT EVER. Regardless of how it impacts the child, 17 year olds know the 12 year old is a child, and that they are vulnerable, so what they are doing will always be wrong, nonconsensual, abusive, and manipulative. end of story.
