We call it pragmatism, here.


I'm sorry but do you even know what pragmatism is? I don't know if your being sarcastic when comparing it to equity or maybe your just confused on what pragmatism is.


prag·ma·tism
ˈpraɡməˌtizəm/
noun
1.
a pragmatic attitude or policy.
"ideology was tempered with pragmatism"
2.
PHILOSOPHY
an approach that assesses the truth of meaning of theories or beliefs in terms of the success of their practical application.

Yeah, I know what it means.


Whereas equity only evaluates fairness. In these terms, equity would be the less accurate.

Go correct someone else, kid.

The Age of Consent laws are just silly in most states, especially my state!

I live in the great state of Kansas, and the legal age of consent is 16....well I just found out my 16 year old cousin is going to be charged for 'sex with a minor' with a 15 year old girl! How stupid is that? I guess 16 is not a minor now here? There are no 'Close in age' laws in Kansas which is even more ridiculous.

So basically it's legal for a 16 year old girl to consent to sex with a 50 year old man and there would be nothing the police or the parents could do about it...

but when a 16 year old has sex with a 15 year old CLASS MATE, it's a crime!? These laws are disgusting....


it is not stupid at all, the girl was 15 under the age of consent. Your cousin messed up because he was dumb. If the someone is at the age of consent they can consent to having sex with whoever they choose that is also the age of consent. So yes a 16 year old girl could have sex with a 55 year old man in your state and it would be legal because they are both of at the age of consent. Daddy issues aside it is all legal.

So you want to remove the age of consent laws? when doing so would let a 55 year old man have sex with a 5 year old girl. or perhaps you would like to have sex with little girls or boys? you really ought to think things through.

Either:

A.) Your troll-fu is weak.

B.) You are trying to unnecessarily be a dick to this person.


No one will buy into your BS.

Wow iam guessing that some of the members here have never had underaged girls come onto them and/or THEY are the ones who are sexual?
And i dont mean like me now as a grown man, iam talking about when your still basically a kid yourself. A teen or a very young immature man.
For the record i turned down many underaged girls in my late teens and early 20's. Something i now actually regret.

2ND EDIT: back to OP though, in Australia there is no junior high, its just highschool. Also young looking 18 year old girls can go out and drink legally.
Oh and i can only imagine what it would have been like with camera phones and fast internet as a teenager!

Actually, I'm the asshole a lot of you will hate.

When I was 21, I was in a relationship with and having sex with a 16-year old girl.

Looking back on it now, I feel disgusted with myself, but I remember at the time throwing every excuse in the book to say how it was perfectly fine for me to be doing so.

Aren't they both technically minors if he's 16 and she 15? Just because you're the age of consent does not mean you are an adult. I mean, by age of consent laws both of them are committing something unlawful as they are both minors? Ehhhhh... there's so much gray area when it comes to age of consent laws...

The age of consent is in place to protect minors from being taken advantage of by those who are supposed to be their guardians. A 16 year old is not considered a guardian; in loco parentis, to a 15 year old.

Or you could just not have sex at an early age.

Revolutionary idea I know but I feel it is an idea with a lot of promise.

I really want to know how people would react if they traveled in the same circles I have.

I'm curious as to what circles you have traveled in?

In my state, 16 is a minor but at the same time not a minor...think of 16 as being 18 in my state.


It's a strict rule in Kansas law that a 16 year old who has sex with anyone under 16 will be prosecuted and jailed. But a 16 year old can legally have sex with anyone who's at least 16, so 40year old , 80 year old, and so on.

This really is crazy

That is a great idea.... unfortunately, it is really unrealistic.

I was late in the game (19), and I wish I would have waited even longer.

I think the problem is we put so much emphasis on making the act of sex taboo and not enough emphasis on making it hold the value (I think) it should.

The approach I'm going to try with my kids is to explain that the more you share that part of yourself with people, the less value that part of yourself holds. Example: If Susie sleeps with at least one guy a week, good ole Joe is not going to feel as special when she sleeps with him, as he would if she only slept with people she was in a serious relationship with.

To me, sex is really about giving something special to someone you love.... so, if you give it out all the time, how special is that gift?
