Why is it 16? What made them reach that conclusion?
this thread is that pointless
I must have missed the memo where threads in DiS need to have a point.
just people seem to respond to some of my posts saying they're pointless so i thought i'd try it for size
either that or they just took the average of when it was happening anyway.
and lowering the age is an easier way to ensure safe sex is practiced. Perhaps.
It was probably arbitrary based on some sort of collective logic of what "might" be right according to some moral guideline. Scientists tend to do that shit a lot, make up arbitrary units for stuff. I think alochol consumption units per week was just arbitrarily created by a group of scientists, and it seems to work out. So er yeah.
to see the relationship between how much they drank and various diseases. Anyway, shit like that works across a population because everything evens out, in smaller groups though they're generally bullshit.
The age of consent in the Vatican City is 12.
TWELVE YEARS OLD.
Wow. Incredible how fast I could reject Catholicism.
Which is 14. But only if the person is up to three years older. Back off paedos!
Such a JAG!
... largely on the womans part, and especially should she become pregnant and need to give birth to a child? Your hips/body in general need to change and it doesn't happen until about that age.
I don't really know, that was just a guess.
Having periods and being able to conceive doesn't mean your body is to give birth. Your hips need to widen and it doesn't happen until late in the process of puberty. Teenage girls giving birth naturally can result in something called "fistula". You don't want to know what it is.
I've watched too many serious documentaries about child marriage in India because thats all my mum watches on TV
and i'm not gonna google it. explain.
You need to watch some serious documentaries about child marriage in India.
loosely based on children's favourite Count Duckula.
but don't have them motherly hips needed to do a birth.
And 12 year olds are hardly mentally prepared for the trauma of child-birth and so on.
