i titled that last response "pedophilia aside". I did so because I wanted to call attention to the arbitrary way society deems someone an adult. Using a one size fits all number does not make sense. Similarly, as far as the issue of consent for sexual relations is concerned we cannot always use age alone. I doubt anyone will argue a six year old able to provide informed consent. However, people develop at their own rate, especially in those teen years and to force everyone into your one size fits all system makes no sense.
