This is Conversation In The Main Page, but I wanted to preserve it for posterity lest a troper be spared embarrassment
I didn't understand this until I looked up the context.
Yabbut in Rhode Island, where Family Guy is more or less set, a 17-year-old — indeed, a 16-year-old — is legally capable of consent. That's what "age of consent" means.
I think a 16-year-old is likely to be capable of consent, but the State of New York disagrees with me (not that it ever comes up in my own life at almost 32). In any case, "statutory rape" means sex with someone below the age of consent, whatever that may be and however reasonable or unreasonable it is.

How well does it match the trope?
