    You believe that sexual relationships are dangerous, I believe they're not.

    I never claimed that sexual relationships were dangerous. Placing your words in my mouth does not make them my own.

    Of course not so don't be absurd. The laws designed to protect a child from sexual abuse due to dominance based upon numerous reasons such as age, size, maturity and even bribery apply across the board and the parent/guardian cannot override these laws to protect children.. When there is no law then the parent/guardian has the authority to prohibit any contact with the child.

    These laws are Constitutional based upon the criteria of "strict scrutiny" (the highest level of judicial review) that's applied anytime a person's Constitutionally protected rights are potentially being infringed upon. Under strict scrutiny the court assumes the law is unconstitutional and the state (government) has to establish a compelling interest of the state/people for the potential infringement. In the case of the prohibition against sexual relations with a child based upon age the compelling interest is obvious.

    Only a perverted sociopathic or psychopathic adult wants and/or seeks to have sex with a child.

    If you agree that sex is not dangerous for children then there is nothing that we can argue about, and I don't know what are you doing in this thread.

    Whether sex is dangerous for a child depends upon what constitutes a child and the context of the sex.

    I am personally against it as most teens are naive and easily manipulated by one who is mature and charismatic.

    Of course they are dangerous. If nothing else, the risk of pregnancy and STDs.

    Here we are. If it's really nothing else. And pregnancy risk and STDs are the only problem, then what is the chance to get HIV or become pregnant from homosexual oral sex with use of condom?

    Do you literally not know the difference?

    2. 2 : the sum of the structural, functional, and behavioral characteristics of organisms that are involved in reproduction marked by the union of gametes and that distinguish males and females

    3. 3a : sexually motivated phenomena or behaviorb : sexual intercourse

    4. 4 : genitalia

    Hug

    1. 1 : to press tightly especially in the arms

    2. 2a : congratulateb : to hold fast : cherish hugged his miseries like a sulky child — John Buchan

    3. 3 : to stay close to the road hugs the river

    You're tralling or what? I asked what is the difference in this context? Why child can be able to give consent on hugging, but cannot be able to give consent on sex? What's the difference?

    A child cannot give consent to anything, a hug, a kiss or anything else.
