    This law is about sex only, that doesn't change the other laws. You can drink alcohol at 16, school is compulsory until 18, and there is no military draft (I think the minimum age if you want to join it is 18)

    Or is this just a way for that Scum Roman Polanski to get off with rape of a child.
    The kid was 13 I think

    I don't know where to draw the line, but there should be SOME point that separates natural curiosity/drive/or whatever you want to call it and exploitation.
    I haven't read the law yet, but they said they would make such differences. For example an educator/tutor will not be allowed to have sex with teens aged under 18

    Wow, very different from the US: compulsory school until 16, no alcohol until 21, minimum age to join the military 17.
    It's a slight difference, but it shows where our priorities differ.

    I've long stated that I think the drinking age should be lowered, the driving age raised.

    I hear NAMBLA has their lobbying contingent in DC to get this lowered.

    In Denmark it is pretty simple.

    Age 15 is age of consent. Legally if someone has sex with someone under 15 then they can be prosecuted. However there is a considerable leeway so to say. For example, a 15 year old having consensual sex with a 14 year old girl/boy friend usually wont cause any problems. Basically if the sex is consensual and the age difference aint insane then there usually no issues.

    Also at 15 you are some what legally responsible for yourself depending on the situation but usually with parental consent or involvement. You can for example get a bank account credit card at 15 with parental consent.

    Age of 16 you can legally buy alcohol in stores. There is no legal limit on drinking.

    Age of 18 you become an adult. You can legally buy alcohol in bars, you can vote and you can get a drivings license and marry. Also as a male you are called up for the military service lotto.

    I think they just leave the age of consent for girls up to their fathers. When the shotgun stays in the rack, you know you're old enough.

    That sounds like a pleasant idea, except for the minor lack of residence in Saudi Arabia that might render that somewhat out of place.

    I guess they use that curved saber over there, my apologies.

    Well, no, you made an interesting point. Age of consent laws have directly patriarchal origins; they were first devised in the early Middle Ages so that fathers could seek violent punishment for men who violated the "chastity" of their daughters before marriage, which is the reason that equal application of such laws to males was a marginal policy until the early 1980's. Some of us simply aren't of the opinion that we should preserve such blatantly authoritarian and coercive arrangements.

    Haha, by that standard, I think the age of consent would be mid-30s for a lot of girls.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
