At what age does being a minor end or begin?

At what age should the crime of statutory rape end or begin? Underage alcohol consumption is another example. Laws about those buying alcohol for those under 21 should be thrown out also, I guess. Anything goes. Below what age should "minors" be protected from predators?: 18, 15, 12, 8, 6, 4, or no age? You would be correct in a pure libertarian world in which everyone took responsibility for their own actions and did no harm to others. We are far from that world.
