    Um, the age of consent has NEVER been 7 in any state, ever.

    The lowest AOC in the US has never been below 12.

    Even England back to the 1500s was never below 12.

    The best way to tell a Democrat from a Republican is to present someone requiring food and shelter. The Democrat will want them housed and fed, even if they be faking need. The Republican will gladly see them starve until all doubt is removed.

      according to wikipedia. See my above comment. You say "Never" many times so I' thought I'd mention it.

      It's in the wikipedia entry for "age of consent".  It was usually around 12 (occasionally 11) but in the instance of Delaware at one point it was younger.

      hate the "um" Maybe you have some basis of knowing that the wikipedia entry is wrong but if someone had looked it'd be understandable that they believed it.

        So it appears, though I would feel better with a legal citation over some obscure group meeting minutes.......

        The very prospect is frightening........
