If it wasn't the law, you' have every prick who likes to fuck and run tricking naive girls into suck their dicks, which happens enough as it is. It's pretty much a failing safety net for preventing teen pregnancy and kidnappings.
Abiding to the rules isn't bad. But you have to understand the justifications behind the legislation. Saying "well it's the law" is the most common excuse for not using your brain.
But also, it's pretty standard morals. A grown man can LIKE a girl sure, but acting on that is pretty indecent. Especially since younger people aren't fully emotionally developed and can be manipulated. Hence why an 18 year old should NOT be dating a 14 year old. By the age of 18, most people are obviously mentally developed. (even the stupid ones.)
Yeah well, now you are actually explaining why you believe this. Which is totally fine with me.
Legal age limit, but I feel that you shouldn't date a woman who doesn't remember the same cultural events as you. If the girl thinks that Green Day sold out with American Idiot and not Dookie, then run to the hills my friend.
Would you like to send our coloured cousins Home again, my friend?
Ambient Music Club.
Sig by Illicit, thankies ^_^
When it comes to dating or sex, my inhibitions would be based around potential harm I could bring to someone too much younger than myself, rather than what the social norm is. I guess in that sense, I wouldn't mind dating someone of any age so long as I could get along with them. However, considering that I'm very easily annoyed by people, it's unlikely that I would date someone too much younger than myself. Age isn't proof that someone is too old or young for you, but it is pretty strong evidence that they might be.

I'd rather not "use my brain" then spend half my life behind bars. It really depends on what laws you're talking about to be honest. You're being very black and white about it, and for l know could be referring to any law. I could argue that you think murderers should be able to get away with murder because they don't "understand the justifications behind the legislation."
I'm not arguing that you should not follow the law. And the fact that you even include the boring fact that you can get in jail for not respecting the law is annoying to me. We don't care about this. We are having a debate on ideas, not on boring facts. I know I can get in jail, thanks.
Yes. I am referring to any and all law. My original post was against those who argue based on the what the law says. Well, that's not how you argue. It's not interresting in any way. The original poster's question was "how young is too young? to which you can answer with countless different points of view, opinions and arguments. The law is based on a political ideology, and isn't an argument in itself. It can be a reason why you wouldn't fuck a 13 years old, but it's not argument when it comes to explaining how a 13 years old is too young to have sex.
I never said these legislations were not correct, I was just asking these kids to use their brain.
Why do you think that the law regarding the age of consent isn't justified?
I don't think it is. Generally speaking, I think we need to protect youngsters with such legislations because they can be very easily influenced by others. Adults have more experiences and sometimes an authority on the teenagers based on a hierarchical relationship or even a biaised perception of adults these kids may have. This is why I think we need these legislations. You could argue that some people will remain easily influenced people for their whole life, but at some point... it's kind of hard to legitimately try to interfere on a very individual basis in the personnal life of any and all citizens.
2 years younger than me is my limit.
Also, when you are like 16, dating a 14 year old that is fucking stupid.
lol come back when you have hit puberty, kthx.
