Spend one week in Wellington (Capital city of NZ) and you'll have your answer.

Colorado has Age of consent much better

0-14: up to 4 year difference.
15-16: up to 10 years older
17+: it's all okay

it acknowledges that there is hanky panky that happen during Teen years, and leaves a reasonable window for that.

I still hold that waiting is a good idea, but understand that many don't want to wait.

Sounds like KS law is too rigid and needs to be revamped. Other states do AOC much better. How did your cousin get caught?

The approach I'm going to try with my kids is to explain that the more you share that part of yourself with people.
Yeah making it taboo or feeling that its something out of this earth is a bad idea also trying to teach them anything about it (not learning but when etc)
So that they don't really "think" about it but do it when they feel "ready" and don't see why they should hurry up doing it (more about social life then anything else a bit loose or bored and just lonely could change how one feel about it or those who watch and gets sick of it)
So that they try to progress "normally" and when things settle and maybe father and mother feelings/emotions/thoughts comes in play (like back in the day when quite stressfull work and more tasks even though some of the tasks I guess made you more mature as well)

Wow, I didn't even know there were different ages of consent for each state, thought there was a standard for the whole country. That's the way it works in Mexico, but it's a bit more f'ed up over there. The age of consent countrywide is 12 years old. There has to be some criteria met though, since 12 to 17 years old is still a minor. Basically, since turning 12 you're free to have sex with whomever you want, regardless of their age, just as long as they're over 12 themselves.
However, in case the other person is over 18, the guardians (be them the parents or whoever has tutelage) have to consent also. What this means is: even if the minor is over the AOC and had consensual sex with an adult, parents could still choose to prosecute the adult if they were to find out, considering it in this case statutory rape.
On the other hand, and this is where it is different from the USA, if they are both still minors but over the AOC, there wouldn't be any prosecution even if the parents were to find out and wanted to retaliate. So, there you have it. Not really sure if it's better or not this way. IMO, 12 seems a bit too young for an AOC and it should be raised to at least 15, specially since that law was passed when life expectancy wasn't as high and the country was in somewhat of a turmoil because of the revolution and uprisings. Anyway, sorry for all the rambling, just wanted to share that.

FYI: I had a 16 year old girlfriend when I was 19 and her father could've had me thrown in jail or at least tried to, but I guess he liked me

Not sure if you are trying to be funny or not, but...

While age of consent laws should be tinkered with, in many places... I would definitely hesitate to say they are even remotely comparable to these laws in uselessness. I personally do not want pedophilia to be legal.

I'm really hoping you were just trying to be funny.

Nowhere do I see Araragi's NAMBLA Card or any inference that he does have one. However, I do worry about the minor thing he said. Fucking someone younger than you is usually okay if you're both like 20, but the minor thing is pushing it.

PS I hope he doesn't mean me. I'm a minor :/

When you make it legal for someone to have sex based on their age and not whether or not they are ready to have sex or not, it's obviously going to be stupid. Some people well into their 20s or 30s aren't ready to have sex, some kids in their early teens are ready to have sex. Ultimately it's all on a case by case basis, but of course people are going to call me a scummy pedophile that should be shot for not thinking it has to be an EXACT AGE that if someone is even A DAY below it, then they are the worst person in human history.

I agree. Although in perspective, murder generally gathers 25 years in most states and rape 10-12.

Yeah... that's why I gave him the benefit of the doubt.

And in the US, age of consent is usually 17-18ish.... but sometimes even lower. He's 21, so if he's messing with a 16 year old, which is what I generally consider below the age of consent (It is the law in my State)... that is not okay, in my opinion, and I support age of consent laws that prevent it.
