The Law Really Is An Ass!!

Today i read something quite interesting and thought provoking.

” In most countries worldwide it is illegal to have sex with a child less that 16 years of age, yet it can be allowed with the parents consent to marry a child of less than 16 years of age”

So this got me thinking, it seems in the world pedophilia is allowed as long as you marry that child that you are defiling. This shows that the law really is an ass. I say this because i feel it is by no means ok for a grown ass man, or even a boy to marry a child, taking away their child hood and innocence.

Know i know i talk about this a lot and i am probably just rambling, but the fact of the matter is i am being bombarded with news of kids being married off  by their parents even at the tender age of 12 years old and the media in which i see these stories plastered on is trying to make it seem like this is a normal occurrence, it is pretty much socially acceptable practice in most Muslim countries ( Now dont get me wrong, i am in no way saying this is a Muslim practice, i am just saying it is mostly done in Muslim countries like Malaysia, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, etc.)It just makes me sick to my stomach.

  1. The age of consent here in the UK is 16 which means that for a person to have sex before then is against the law. In practice the law rarely prosecutes two people who are both under the age of 16 and who have sexual intercourse, however anyone who is 16-years-of-age or older and has sex with someone who is under the age of consent can be prosecuted. It is legal for people to marry at the age of 16 with their parents permission and at the age of 18 without the consent of their parents. The law isn’t perfect in the UK but it is, on the whole about right as regards the age of consent.

    1. yeah, as with countries like the UK that’s good, even though personally i still dont know if 16 is really a good age because i think its still too young. But the problem is in countries that i have mentioned( Malaysia and the rest) it really is so bad, they marry off their kids at a young age because they are scared that their kids will do inappropriate things( meaning have sex before getting married) Its just insane.. Thank you as usual for your 2 cents. Always a pleasure to swap ideas with you. 🙂
