Already responded to this point, but I will do it again, this does not apply to non-humans

Then it is illegal for being selective. Resolutions are all or nothing, they apply to every WA nation equally or not at all. The rules and guidelines apply to everybody. That is not something up for debate.

Ambassador Lovik stared at the proposal in front of her for a while, tapping a pen against her old helmet as she read the matter at hand this time around. With a sigh and a groan, she flipped the helmet's visor, polished to a ludicrous level of reflectiveness, before downing a cup of coffee in one go.

"So let me get this straight ambassador: loads o' people here have told ya that this proposed age of consent won't work so well for literally any non-human species except those that somehow age exactly like bog standard humans would, probably through...I dunno, space magic, genetic meddling, or some other weird reason, and so ya figure that the best way of solvin' this problem is to instead make it so that non-human species just aren't affected at all? Sorry to tell ya this, ambassador, but a one-size-fits-nobody issue can't be solved by just slapping 'it doesn't affect non-human species' on there, as that would mean that a whole load o' this assembly won't even be affected by this proposal. Kinda defeats the point of even legislating on it if a sizable chunk of this assembly's members can just ignore it, wouldn't ya say so?"

"While the delegation surely disagrees with the motives of our colleagues in Concomitania, we cannot help but agree that this proposal is not suitable for the international community even if the necessary barriers for its legality were crossed. As such, we firmly oppose any progress of this proposal towards law."

I asked that same question earlier and got no response, even though they have responded to other posts in the meantime. I can only assume that my question was intentionally ignored, and that the age is entirely arbitrary.

Given the rapid fire nature of the authors posts, given the fact they have been here for a day or so, and given the fact that reason is something that seems to elude the author, I wouldn't waste too many more calories on this endeavor.

Age of Consent

Postby The minoriteez » Sat Feb 22, 2020 2:01 pm

Personally, I think anywhere from age 16-18 is okay. That being said, I think sexual education should be taught in 9th grade,so age 15, and then by age 16 they can make developed choices ! :blush:

"Ahem." Cornelia Schultz announces her presence in the room.

"General Assembly Resolution Three-Fifty-Five, Rights of Sapient Species:
Requires that in defining legal age of consent and legal age of marriage, member nations must define legal age for individual species; the legal age cannot be lower than the average age of onset of reproductive maturation for that species, and all legal ages between species should be set at an equivalent degree of maturation. Beings that do not reproduce sexually are exempted from this clause.

"This proposal would be illegal for Duplication and/or Contradiction of existing legislation."

The same age to give sexual consent should be the same age to get married, as sex should be something that only married couples do.

“In Civitas Libertas the age of consent is thirteen.
This is because we believe that it is possible for thirteen year olds or at least some thirteen year olds to consent. Thus any laws against this would be tyranny. We are not aware of any studies that definitively prove the opposite is true in all cases.”

“We are however deeply concerned by states that permit intercourse with under 13s.

Thus out of wanting this law to succeed we shall agree to a reasonable compromise 15.5 years old.
This is calculated to be a fair compromise between those that want it to be 13, 14, 15,16,17 and 18,
It is also approved by doctors of medicine in France.
