A number of years back, probably six or seven, I made the calculated decision to abandon advocating for any age of legality, with regards to human sexuality. To be fair, I never had a firm answer to this question.
I consider the nature of sexual activity to be of far greater importance, than biological age.
I also consider Age of Consent laws, at best, to be redundant, where it comes to protecting minors from brutality…because there are already laws to address sexual brutality…And at it’s worst, I recognize it as inhumane oppression, ripping apart lovers.
As a matter of genuine, historical fact…Age of Consent Law was created in order to allow the state to prosecute, in cases where the state designated “victim” refused to testify against their lover…
This is the true essence of Age of Consent Laws…They exist to seize control over human rights…As such, I straight out condemn them.
I don’t play into any games, where people want me to pick an age…because I reject the standard, and it’s premise.
In addition…most people just use it as propaganda fodder, when a MAP does give a low age…So why bother?
As a realist…I understand Age of Consent law is not leaving us, anytime soon.
…But I’m not going to play the numbers game, or pretend that it is anything other than it is.
My ultimate answer is…Humans are sexual beings, and humans have a right to their own sexuality.
Words in law books cannot rewrite the laws of nature, nor rewrite the nature of human relationships…And they are foolishly grasping at the breeze, in attempting to do so.
Age of Consent is a fools dream, for power mongers with a superiority complex.
Before anyone jumps down my throat over the following, let me clarify…
…I do understand, one of the genuine reasons given for Age of Consent law, was to allow for sexually brutalized children to no longer have to take the witness stand in a courtroom, and face their abuser…Hence, they lowered the standard of conviction to mere proof that anything sexual ever happened.
…The problem arose, when they started using these laws to railroad people into prison, even when their so called “victims” were objectively their lovers, who even testified in court on their behalf…outraged at what the legal system was doing to not just their lover…but to themselves, as that persons lover…and as someone forced to assume the role of “victim”.
The latter type of case is just dead wrong…That is not justice…It’s injustice…It’s inhumanity.
There is no way under the sun, that a better system cannot be created to deal with traumatized, sexually brutalized children in the courtroom.
Age of Consent is simply a monstrosity, which spreads the suffering and impoverishment around…It does not work.
