TOPIC: Age of consent
#188819
Age of consent 1 Week, 6 Days ago  
It's so confusing. An 11 year old can be considered knowing it's wrong to kill somebody but they have to be 16 before they are able to consent to sex. Am I alone in wondering why one (a wank) is so much more serious than the other (a death)?

I think it is the coercion aspect.
No ten year old is going to be prosecuted for playing doctors and nurses with another ten year old, but they need protecting from adults.
If an adult was behind them murdering someone, I would imagine the child would be considered victim rather than perpetrator?
If we condition children to obey adults, how can we blame them when they do?



I think fourteen is still a bit young for responsibility.
