Are Europeans Pedophiles?

Recommended Posts

Also, Europe includes quite a lot of countries where the age of consent isn't low so the clear answer to the original question is No.

Same thing with driving a car, voting in public elections, attaining knowledge, etc. The laws don't guarantee that, by the age of, let's say, 18, all persons can responsibly drive or vote and know enough to be self-sufficient. Real life obviously bears this out. However, those (and other) laws do exist and, hopefully, will continue to exist. Laws don't exist simply to punish people. They act as goals, expectations, etc for both the individual and society as a whole. I think it can be said that laws are abstract, and as such, they don't always jive with reality. Due to this quality (of being abstract), laws are subject to great debate.

 

Perhaps the intent of a law (any law) should be questioned. Here, for example, one could ask about the legislative intent of laws allowing age 13 children to lawfully engage in sex. Certainly not to allow age 13 girls to get pregnant. So, if not, then what other laws exist to prevent this from happening? But some people say that laws can't prevent it.

 

From another perspective, we all know that many children and people push the limits, so if the law sets age of consent at 18, then it's reasonable that many age 16 and 17 kids will want to try it. If we set age 16 as the limit, we know that many age 14 and 15 kids will want to try it. So what are we saying about the age 14 limit? Certainly for most kids, they become aware of sex around ages 10 through 12 or even earlier.

 

Where do we draw the line? Menstruation? Then the laws are merely saying that, if she's old enough to bleed, she's old enough to "breed"? Then we're going back to the ability to get pregnant.

Are they arguing it from the same angle as rape and that you need a consenting partner? Same with the beastiality issue from earlier perhaps. "well, she didn't say no officer".

Just playing with the term "large body". I know - I've got a strange sense of humour. Dead loss really.sad.gif
