    I see, you just "love" the kids so much that you want the age of consent removed to protect them. That makes perfect sense.

    Yes, pragmatic people, like the ones who say "no fkg children until they are at least 18" are usually psychopaths.

    Uh...ya....that's a very naive approach. If you can't see how people can use something good for something bad, I can't help you.

    16 year olds taking algebra is considered advanced?

    I wonder what that makes my son who just turned 12 a few weeks ago? He is taking algebra right now.

    Some people shouldn't ever have sex because they're never prepared to deal with having their own kids.

    Are you one of them? Or are you just judging everyone else.

    And, really, this angle you've invented is BS. There is no reason to remove the age of CONSENT (thread title) in regard to old people.

    Algebra at 16 is advanced? That's a sophomore in high school. We took algebra in 6th and 7th grade. By the time I was a sophomore I (and most of my school) was in trig and geometry.

    Society does not decide anything.

    Whatever, dude. It's been over 20 years since I was in HS and I don't remember.

    Are you also for testing 14 year olds and hooking them up with men?
