And I can say for certain that I definitely won't.
I think I've reached an age where anyone younger than early-mid 20s would feel a bit wrong...
(but no, just no)
and a policeman runs up to them shouting, "oy! yewtree!", and the irish nonce says "bejesus, tis a shame there's only two of us!"
It was funny how someone mentioned Skins in the best UK telly thread, with the comment about "finding 18 year old girls attractive", that was a good point indeed, if you're 30+ then the idea of watching that show just feels uncomfortable.
and someone mentioned that the age of consent in China was 12. My mate, who was only half listening, shouted in banterific style LET'S GO TO CHINA! only to see everyone look at him with a slightly disgusted 'that's not very appropriate' glance.
And now he's a paediatrician.
That's fucking low.
Infographics we'll never see
I guess that's the point
it's only babies and grown ups around.
makes me feel a bit sick tbh
keep it in Japan, yeah?
it's even worse than Japanese law.
Otherwise the question wouldn't make sense.
It would just be too much of a gulf in life experience, I couldn't love a 13 year old so I wouldn't have sex with one.
Sorry for the serious reply.
When I was 13 I wouldn't have.
rather than aww, the poor dirty old men.

I'm not sure its fully legal or anything, but it seems to be accepted, sorta like doing 85 on the motorway
but I'm sure there are plenty of dumb, hygenically-challenged and emotionally under-developed teenage boys getting some either way.
So, say, under-15s can have consenting sex with under-15s, etc.? Sort of like football age groups?
I was asked to play for the U18s when I was 16 because of my unique talent and raw power. Thanks mates
as in a 40 year old man could bag a 13 year old? Seems a bit (well, very) wrong to me.
There are different rules in this country for people in any position of trust eg teacher, family member etc. and sex with a 13 year old although not rape cannot be fully consensual. Maybe Spain deals with the issue of consent and the presumption of lack of consent differently.
don't know how deceit is defined exactly, but it's still a pretty inadequate law that is currently in the process of being changed - there are consultations right now on what age it should be raised to
(which I'm sure there are some), think of the mental difference. It's a bit wrong.
I dunno. Kids are growing up faster these days so I think this is more about 13 year olds sexing with other 13 year olds.
Her original article where she defends known sex abusers and criticises those abused as vulnerable children http://www.spiked-online.com/site/article/13604/
should writing something like this be considered a disciplinary offence. i.e. is she fit to be a barrister? (yes there have been loads of other lawyers who have said similarly dubious stuff)
Picture my unending surfuckingprise.
TECHNICALLY A POLANSKI
YOUNGER. NAH, YOUNGER.
YOU'RE a tree
the only way to combat the amount of child rape crimes is to lower the age of consent, as Graham Chapman said, the only way to bring the crime figures down is to reduce the number of offences
About the topic mentioned, but it's too long and it's really, really boring.
I'm pretty amazed she can remember being at a festival.
that would be great. The lunch bell is going to go again in a minute
Although, just to be clear on this - no, I definitely wouldn't.
Not too late to make that clear, is it?
but I wonder if my, and many others, reactions might be down to the cultural attitude we have - that even if this was legal it would still be "wrong". It'd be interesting to see what the reaction would be a couple of generations after the age of consent was lowered; would people have then got used to it enough for it to be an okay thing to do, or would it still be inherently weird?
Then again, it could just be an age gap thing - like how in 3 years time I probably wouldn't sleep with a 16 year old (even though it's legal) because it'd still be a 9 year gap
and I'm thinking that might be the main issue, given that I wouldn't sleep with a 16 year old when I was 25 because, despite it being legal, the age gap is still too large
