I know a bunch of people are going to get on here and ridicule France but this seems to be the way now.

We have lots of laws like this in Murica that we didn't used to but enough people do the obvious wrong thing so often that laws are born. What state just passed a law against screwing animals? Of course, it's not about stopping things but punishing them.

Uh... France's problem in this regard seems to be beyond even the shiat Trump is alleged to have been involved in... I mean, it's that kinda stuff, but some of them seemed COOL with it.

As in, even one of their favorite writers IIRC had no problem talking about how he liked 'em young... And HOW he liked 'em young.

They protect Roman Polanski. They don't even care if it's consensual even disregarding age.

Not taking bets on how well this new law gets enforced, either.

So "under 15" is illegal.  For clarity, does "over 15" mean that they are good to go on their 15th birthday, or my friend needs to wait until their 16th birthday?

Yes, 15 is the age of consent in France (middle of the road in Europe). This article seems just to be about higher penalties being decided for child rape.

I say seems because I just skimed it. This is fark after all.

This is entirely new. Last year or the year before some guy had sex with two 11-year-olds and couldn't be charged because it wasn't against the law.

I notice how it's damn near all the 3rd world countries ok with being way too young/actual children.

Also noticed how screwed up the map is with reversing colors where the gradient goes red the older the age instead of going the opposite direction.

They didn't start with a heavily Puritan-influenced population trying to achieve religious freedom.  That does tend to color North America's perspective compared with other countries whose population was made up of whomever happened to be inside the newly redefined borders at the time..

So I don't know if I'm missing a joke, but the coloring on that map is backwards as fark.  On a color gradient, Blue/green are supposed to be the best and red/maroon are supposed to be the worst.  I was all ready to come in here like, "Get with it Idaho" and then I was really sad realizing Idaho and Florida were actually better than most of the US at something.

I would love to visit Thailand some day, but I would have to go with a group of friends.

I'm a single guy, and when I've gone to Europe by myself, it's all good.

But a single guy going to Thailand....that raises a lot of suspicion.

with GRADIENTS.
Cool colours for lower values, Warm colours for higher values. Every gradient map ever works this way.

So.... you'd jail a 16 boy for having a 15 years old GF? 14? 13? 12?
It's all kind of odd. Because I bet you support adult Court for an 11 year old If they kill a baby.
 
2021-04-16 6:24:35 PM  
Would be nice to see some graphics on how worldwide age of consent has changed over time. Because "teenager" is a very new concept, and "puberty" used to be the marker of an adult.

Also would be interesting to see how this correlates with average years of education. I'm guessing for women it's pretty direct. (The driver not being "she's too young to give birth safely," as you might think, but rather "if she gets pregnant she won't finish high school.")

It's completely jacked up that maps like this do not include expected life expectancy of the people living in those areas

Aren't you lucky to make it to 40 if you live in Yemen? Don't personally know.


For example in Mexico they do have a low age consent but it's not like some Foreigner can just go down there and marry a child you'll actually get killed trying to do that

I really think we should focus more on age difference than actual age.

Even in eight year old shouldn't be able to marry a 70 year old.
Or even a 40-year-old.
Or even a 30 year old.
The power dynamic of all three of those is inappropriate

I don't disagree. In theory. But. If I was 9 years old and I was dying of cancer would you begrudge me  a table dance?  Or do I have to resort to making out with a relative?
Real talk. This whole thing is 🤢 Gross. But. Humanity is apparently unable to write laws with exceptions and we have a really bad habit of making blanket rules that ignore outlining problems and tell those people to just fark off.

article: ' (In France) ... used to be required to prove sex was non-consensual to obtain a rape conviction.
Now: '"No adult aggressor will be able to claim the consent of a minor younger than 15-years-old."

So they will *still* have to prove non-consent with girls 16 and over? Gee Thanks.
