1. I said age of consent is made up. You sure havent brought anything concrete that shows me why 18 is a GREAT age to have the age of consent. Saying "psychology says so" doesnt work.<quoted text>Its not made-up. We codified it. Consent then we choose an age that was most appropriate.
Im not going to chase YOUR tail like this. Consent is a legal concept that we can and do enforce. That we might shift the age, is irrelevant...whats important is the CONSENT and what all that means.
Its not likely we'll lower the age - not in our lifetimes. In our concepts, in our laws and understanding of Human behaviors and psychology we have gleaned that a 14 yo is incapable of giving real consent in a sexual relationship. As well as still being under the charge of their parents.
But when are you gonna answer my Q's. 1. Defend your POV that consent is made up. Show me why you believe that is so. 2. Why not let 14yo's join the military? Why don't we let them? We know many would gladly go "play" soldier.
Fly you sure do a good job of avoiding presenting any of your own arguments/support. You love to deflect by asking more questions.
2. Why not let 14 year olds join the military? Connect this to what we're discussing for me. And Im being honest here. Are you thinking that Im advocating lowering the age of consent? No. Im asking you what is the difference between 50 year old/18 year old marriage and 50/14 marriage? I mean the 14 year old can do everything the 18 year old can right? To no avail I guess.
By the way, Im connecting this to you saying that gay couples can do anything that a straight couple can except procreate. So in my situation a 14 year old can do anything an 18 year old can right? So why the restriction?
