    Goodness, I wish I could say that I've never encountered such asinine idiocy before, but unfortunately, I can't.

    Regardless...:cuckoo:

    Hell, I wish I could say that I've never encountered such asinine idiocy, but unfortunately, that's not the case.

    I don't get it. How would lowering the voting age encourage pedos?

    People who link youth rights with pedophilia don't rely on the use of reason or logic, so I really have no answer for you.

    because if you lowered the voting age it would be easier to argue lowering the age of consent and reduce it to simply being pubescent..then people like analprostrate could try to convince 12 yr olds to have sex with them legaly ...

    Actually, Eots does touch upon a great point.

    If youth are given the right to vote, it would give certain people like Agna a piece of evidence as to why things like the age of consent should be lowered.

    Though I believe the age of consent is low as it is in some places (some have it at 14 in the US).

    That's not true, but squares well with your general legal ignorance.

    actually, he is correct, but the 14 age is dependent on the age of the other party
    the general age is 16 in most states, in some it is 18
    and if you cross state lines, it is 18 for most states as well
