    Why is it being less tolerant of homosexuality by disagreeing with reducing the age of consent to 16? When people opposed reducing the heterosexual limit to 16 did people accuse them of being less tolerant of heterosexuality?

    Its got nothing to do with the actual age, its to do with equality. Why should there be a different age for heterosexuals and homosexuals?

    Because Homosexuality is something more confusing to decipher than heterosexuality. Non straight People at 16 very often aren't sure about their sexuality and this law opens them up to exploitation by older men.

    I've seen it happen.

    One should NOT be discriminated against because of their sexuality. Period.

    Sure you have

    Interesting in how almost every debate youre in, you've seen it happen, with your own eyes. Seriously, your apparent life experiences would make gangsters in the Bronx feel like pussies :rolleyes:

    I agree with Luke, all sex is dangerous, and if heterosexuals can make an informed and intelligent decision about sex at 16, then so can homosexuals...

    I think he's just a bit confused what he believes in right now, he's obviously split when it comes to fundamental civil liberties. He likes to pick and chose...

    He really is unpredictable, in future he will certainly be a big-state guy, but as for his social standing I don't have a clue!
