Now what will Jerry Sandusky do for travel panning?

Unless you want an 18-year-old's life ruined and put on a sex offender registry after farking his 17-year-old girlfriend, age of consent laws should be made more clear, not less. And there definitely shouldn't be auto-shame attached to asking those questions.  "OMG! You asked about the laws concerning your life! Pedophile!"

I heard Wikipedia also lists the age of consent in various countries.

*GASP!*

Shut them down!

You're assuming the thread was a frank and factual discussion of the laws in Mexico. Are you new to the Internet?

It's 18, so Fark You, Mr. Pedohpile.

Hey, Barney is on a short list of children's programming I never heard criminal charges on.

/still awful music though

I'll be straight, I'm proud to be Mexican, not so proud of the government, and the majority of my people are disappointing me, so it's harder and harder to say I'm Mexican, and I can't pull the 'I'm Canadian' schtick Americans do when abroad.

Canada raised the age from 14 to 16 recently.

People seem sadder since then.
 
2012-12-27 01:46:55 PM  
The Mexican chick at work that I wanna nail is 33, so I ain't even worried about the age of consent.
 
2012-12-27 01:47:52 PM  
So...what's is the age of consent in Mexico?
 
2012-12-27 01:48:44 PM  
I remember this one from Tshirthell

www.tshirthell.com

Although I wouldn't rely on this shirt for legal advice.
 
2012-12-27 01:50:15 PM  
Stupid reasoning, but it WAS a shiatty website.

It was running some kind of proprietary forum software that looks like it was from about 1994. I tried to look at it a number of times when planning vacations I always gave up in frustration of trying to navigate that piece of shiat.

There's a period missing in that above post for some reason.

I had no idea the BBC was in control of that mess, either.

18? That's pretty high, even the US is down to 14-16 depending on state.
 
2012-12-27 01:54:17 PM  
Ugh. The question is not "What is the age of consent"

The question is, "How easy is it to bribe the authorities to get out of a rape charge."

I wasn't making a comment about Mexico or Mexicans, it could have been any country. I'm just saying that people can't assume the BBC was shutting down discussion of the law, when the thread might have been overrun with trolls and / or perverts.

Can't do it, either. Apparently, I've been confused with Palestinian, Israeli, or Iranian O.o

You still should be concerned about the 'consent' part. You know, willing partner and all.

Their fail. A site like that needs to have a crew of active moderators to keep the site out of hot water. Otherwise, it winds up looking like the previous postings (and probably following ones) in this topic.

Carry on...

Curiously enough it's not like the BBC news websites are short for moderation. Try posting anything pro-Western society on any of their Have Your Say discussions and see how fast it "breaks the house rules".

'what's the age of consent in Mexico?'

If Lonely Planet is still down, I'm sure someone could check Rush Limbaugh's website.

Wonder how long it will take for the "Anything even a second younger than 18 is pedophilia!" crowd to get in here.
 
2012-12-27 03:17:35 PM  
As a 40-something guy who has traveled overseas quite a bit, I have absolutely no interest in the age of consent. Instead, I prefer travel boards that discuss a much more meaningful subject: what country has the highest quality MILFs? This is a critical measure for travelers because these are the women you'll be interacting with overseas. So far, I've found that Czech women seem to age the best. I hereby open the floor to discussion.

Having spent a total of 3 weeks in the Dominican Republic in 2011 (2 week jaunt and 1 week jaunt) for business, I respectfully offer it as a contender as well. Though I have not been to Czechland so I guess I cannot realistically make a comparison.

Boorish yanks,using my nationality to get out of political arguments, are damaging my country's reputation abroad.

I spent a couple of weeks in Costa Rica on my honeymoon, even my wife was thinking the Tica's were really hot.

Yeah, but, asking the age of consent is what an ephebophile would do. A pedophile always can be sure he's in the wrong.

Maybe it is just a Latin thing, as I was also going to put San Juan, PR on the list for consideration as well.
