The age of consent in many states of the USA was just TEN by the year 1885.
In the late nineteenth century,"Age of consent" referred to the legal age at which a girl could consent to sexual relations. Men who engaged in sexual relations with girls who had not reached the age of consent could be criminally prosecuted.

American reformers were shocked to discover that the laws of most states set the age of consent at the age of ten or twelve, and in one state, Delaware, the age of consent was only seven. Women reformers and advocates of social purity initiated a campaign in 1885 to petition legislators to raise the legal age of consent to at least sixteen, although their ultimate goal was to raise the age to eighteen. The campaign was eventually quite successful; by 1920, almost all states had raised the age of consent to sixteen or eighteen.

What happens if the Earth orbits the Sun faster? You still gonna say 18 is a good age for consent, when in reality they are closer to 10?

Don't get me wrong, a girl needs to stay untouched for as long as possible so she can grow into a clean, beautiful woman.

But to assign a hardline number across everyone is stupid. Some are ready at 16, some are ready at 24, some are ready at 7 (if you go to Penn State)...lol

Re: The age of consent in many states of the USA was just TEN by the year 1885.
Okay, so what point are you trying to make about the age of consent almost 150 years ago? The United States was formed only in 1776, a mere baby compared most independent sovereignties/states. By 1912 the average age of consent in the U.S. was 17. Now let's take a look at the entire world as it is today:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

By today's standards, the United States has some of the strictest laws against under age sexual relations and one of the highest legal age limits globally.

If you think the U.S. is still bad about its age of consent laws for some reason, check out what the current age of consent is in several of other countries.

"Onset of puberty as the age of consent
In some jurisdictions, there is no fixed age of consent. Instead, sex is allowed with people who are pubescent or post pubescent. Such jurisdictions include Yemen, but only in marriage, and the states of Nayarit and Querétaro (in Mexico) and Bolivia. This was also the case of the Russian Soviet Federal Socialist Republic (RSFSR) and other Soviet republics during the Soviet era.[9]"

Yeah definitely, if a little child looks like a little child, then there's no business for a grown man to be having sex with them. When they start looking like women and are sexually mature one may have an argument about them being ready for sex, but usually that doesn't happen until 15/16 yo.

Still while a child is under the care of their parents I dont think any grown man should be able to enjoy sex with them without the parent's approval, it's a breach of respect.

"White privilege" is the liberal religion's version of Original Sin: you are born guilty, and you carry that burden of guilt all your life, and the only way to escape eternal damnation is for white people confess their sin, to bow, kneel and believe the dogma of the Church of Liberalism, genuflect at its altars, honor its saints, fill the collection plate, and never, ever doubt.

Re: The age of consent in many states of the USA was just TEN by the year 1885.
Traditionally, across the globe, the age of consent for a sexual union was a matter for the family to decide, or a tribal custom. In most cases, this coincided with signs of puberty, menstruation for a woman and pubic hair for a man.[2]

In Ancient Rome, it was very common for girls to marry and have children shortly after the onset of puberty.[citation needed]

The first recorded age-of-consent law dates back 800 years: In 1275, in England, as part of the rape law, a statute, Westminster 1, made it a misdemeanor to "ravish" a "maiden within age," whether with or without her consent. The phrase "within age" was interpreted by jurist Sir Edward Coke as meaning the age of marriage, which at the time was 12 years of age.[3]

In the 12th century Gratian, the influential founder of Canon law in medieval Europe, accepted age of puberty for marriage to be between 12 and 14 but acknowledged consent to be meaningful if the children were older than 7. There were authorities that said that consent could take place earlier. Marriage would then be valid as long as neither of the two parties annulled the marital agreement before reaching puberty, or if they had already consummated the marriage. It should be noted that Judges honored marriages based on mutual consent at ages younger than 7, in spite of what Gratian had said; there are recorded marriages of 2 and 3 year olds.[2]


that's what the ignorants don't know who keep shouting Islam is the Religion of Pedophiles...when all the other folks at the time did the same...even til 1917 it was ok to have sex with a 7 year old in the US (Delaware).

I dont think they married these girls to older man. That would have been very unusal for that time. Probably they were married to other teenage guys around 16/17.

Some girls reach puberty by 11 or 12 these days.

How can you ARGUE WITH NATURE?

Sorry. Sucks for you. But it's reality. Age of consent throughout history has always been lower than it's set in the U.S. We're awfully puritan about it here.

I'm not saying a girl that young should get pregnant -- I don't think any woman should have children and if she does, she should have ONE child after being married for at least two or three years. Stability -- something most of these unwed mothers never considered.
 Quoting: Super Bowl Dave


Totally agree - these days kids start much earlier with this type of stuff, because it's also being pushed on them by their "idols".

Back then, when life expectancy wasn't nearly what we have now, people died in their 30's or 40's, it was important and normal for them to marry and have children at 13-15, a girl menstruating the first time meant she was ready to have a child (marriage happened even before then, much earlier)

Average age of menarche in the mid 1800s was 17. In Northern Europe is was over 17. In the developed world we live in now, the age of average menarche has dropped to well under 13. There are girls are early as 7-8 getting their periods now! Research on secular trend in puberty.

OP I understand and agree but realize the average life exptancy was 40 in the 1880’s.

This means If you had a child at the age of 22 you would not see you childs 18th birthday on average.


Life then does not equate to today and 40 was the average, may died from just simple things like wisdom teeth coming in at a even younger age as a example.
I'm only human, it's my biggest flaw.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.
