Age of consent - teens consulted
I am about...a year too late for this, but I'm going to comment anyway.
'A child is a child until they are 18'
I'm 17 and I've gone through more than most 40 year olds! And while I think that the thought of 13 year olds having sex is disgusting, it just isn't fair to put such a definite age on things. Some people my age act like children still, while some are much more mature. Each individual is different, and develops at different speeds depending on upbringing, circumstance, and the personality of the individual. If somebody called me a child, I'd be highly insulted!
the Law in england is 16 for a girl and not wanting to be tarring everyone with the same brush but look at the amount of teenage pregnancies there are. it might seem cool to be allowed go home with whoever you want because its legal, but what happens in 9 months when you are screaming crying in agony for your own mother to make it all go away, not so cool now or mature is it? the soone r people realise that lowering teh age of consent is going to bring about more sexually transmited diseased and unwanted pregnancies the better
