Why do people suggest that children or adolescents cannot consent to sex or other intimate acts When it is a statistically proven fact that more than half of all children have engaged in sex before they are adults anyway?Many of these sexual relationships between two minors are clearly against the law yet minors are never disciplined for such actions. An adult can be imprisoned or bashed or killed for engaging in the exact same activity.This attitude is clearly age discriminant!

Sex with 'children', if only by a day, is very much like abortion, in that it will generate much heat and little light. I don't imagine anybody ever had their mind changed by logical discourse on either subject.

i still don't even understand what happened here. the charge is 'use of a child in a sexual performance'. what does that even mean?
The NYS Penal Law states
ยง 263.05 Use of a child in a sexual performance.
A person is guilty of the use of a child in a sexual performance if
knowing the character and content thereof he employs, authorizes or
induces a child less than seventeen years of age to engage in a sexual
performance or being a parent, legal guardian or custodian of such
child, he consents to the participation by such child in a sexual
performance.
Use of a child in a sexual performance is a class C felony.

The problem with stupid, superstitious people is their warped values. There is nothing wrong with consensual, recreational sexual activity. The age and sex of those involved is irrelevant. All consensual sex is harmless, all consensual sex is the same, all consensual sex must be legalized. You want to debate something? Debate the fact that it is sick that Religions(all churches) are permitted tax-exempt status. That's the true evil that needs to be cured. That and the sick propaganda that people try to spread with fear, shame and lies about how horrible the human body and pleasure (especially sexual pleasure) is.
SICK!!! These were children - too young too "consent"
