This is unnecessarily mean. It's not even true. I simply cannot believe that the thread to which you are referring was allowed to stand without being deleted. The woman was basically trying to form a link between pedophilia, Mexican culture, and Mexican immigration. It was a very mean spirited post that really shocked me... I have seen a lot on this forum and that takes the cake for being the most outrageous.

Yup, thats true. I guess we were late bloomers.

I know right? Like the arguments have become less logical, and more mean spirited. A couple of new contributors have turned up, and the cruel stereotypes are flying away.

I have heard that in many cases the age of consent in Mexico is 12. Here is something I found by happenstance when googling this very thing after reading the posts here.

Age of Consent (http://www.suite101.com/article.cfm/child_abuse_and_recovery/113006 - broken link)


As the years went by, I discovered that child sexual abuse exists in every corner of the globe. I wanted to learn more. I discovered that the age of consent varies according to cultural traditions and law. If you are a survivor, you may, like me, be disturbed when you learn what the age of consent is in these countries:
  • Albania-14 Argentina-15, but can be 12 in certain cases. (I didn't learn what cases)
  • Austria-14
  • Brazil-18, but 14 and older only prosecutable after complaint by minor
  • Canada-14, 18 for anal sex, sex with an authority figure, prostitution or appearing in pornography. A 14 year old may have sex with another who is as young as 12.
  • China-15
  • Chili-12
  • Columbia-12-14
  • France-15
  • Germany-15
  • Greece: 17 for sodomy, otherwise 14
  • Iceland-14
  • Japan- 13 nationwide, 16 to 18 in most prefectures (however, age of marriage for a female with parental approval is 16)
  • Korea-13
  • Nigeria-13
  • Mexico- 12, but 18 under some circumstances
  • South Korea-13
  • Spain-13
  • Thailand-15
  • US- varies from state to state, usually between 16 and 18; Hawaii-14; Iowa-14-16; New Mexico-13 homosexual, 17 heterosexual

It is very usual to see a 13 year old in Mexico married to a man twice or three times her age. They start young over there, it is part of their culture. You are a racist if you don't support this, and need to take racial sensitivity classes.

That was posted earlier on that thread. Notice that in New Mexico(which is part of America btw) has an age one year older than Mexico.

And this is what I replied to those numbers:
Quote:
Just for clarification, what does "consent" mean? Does it mean allowing a legal adult to have sex with a person that age, or does it mean allowed to have sex in general? As in 12 year olds having sex with 12 year olds?

Interestingly enough, on the first chart, the Phillipines have the exact same laws(12-18). And the country of origin of more "civilized" immigrants, Japan, is only one year higher(13-18).

Edit:
Nevermind, I found this footnote
Quote:
In Mexico the federal law varies according to the age gap between partners and is often overruled by regional laws.

Default mexican or united states people

yes mexican or united statians are respected from me because they are the founders of this land in american continent both of them have the same thinking no slaves, respect from each other, defend the continent, both help each other sometimes. Both people makes one big country.Both countries can find the solutions of their own mistakes. both countries hate eachother because one country looks for others people problems.tThe cowboy way both countries fight to build this big nation in both sides of the country in Old Mexico and United States. Remember this Abraham Lincohl fighting for the freedom and Mexico fight for the army against freedom in the south at the same time. Now you think I hate Mexico and United States whose best know our big country.We are getting worst now than before because we are our own enemy. Our country will be lost in the battle.
