Posting to watch and say hey!
You know, you can just hit the "notify" button. It bothers me how people keep doing this.

That doesn't add it the "new replies" menu, and some people don't want a new e-mail whenever somebody posts (especially in a high-pase thread like this where'll you can get over a hundred replies in a day). Or check their mail just to see if someone on this forum has said anything, when it's far easier to check at the forums by using said "new replies" list.

To address the troll's 'points'.

Timothy (both of them) weren't written by Paul. How do we know this? Because Paul writes that women are equal earlier. Problem, fundamentalist?

 The troll post was full of awkward quotation mark usage. It was probably just a copy paste hackjob.

Thats just it - all teenagers are exposed to sexual health education from the age of 13 delivered in a frank and honest manner, and have access to free sexual health clinics, free contraception, and confidential and free advice - all through the NHS and local educational systems. This is manly to counteract the high rate of teenage pregnancy, but there is no sign of it working. There seems little reason why this region has such a high rate - its no less affluent than bordering regions, and educational performance is overall slightly better than our neighbours. It seems glib to put it down to teenage experimentation.

I'm not convinced that being clueless about sex is any sort of alternative. Let me give you a personal example:

PENIS

Regarding age of consent:

Kids are stupid, plain and simple. At least, I know I was, and most kids I know are. Sure, there might be some that are incredibly mature for their age, but they are the exceptions. So, a line has to be drawn somewhere between a kid that doesn't know what's good for him, and an adult that has the right to chose.

Problem is, it's not a hard line, so it's difficult to pin down. The best anybody can do is make a good guess and hope for the best. Some places have it higher, and some have it lower. Which one is better? Hell if I know.

People are stupid, plain and simple. To claim adults intrinsically know better is laughable. Adults, on average, know better due to experience. In other words, they know better because they've already made mistakes.

Raising or lowering the age of consent will do squat to change any of that. If you want people to act less stupid, educate them (sex ed is awesome when done right, imo).

For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

I'm of the opinion that sex between consenting partners is no bad thing, provided it's done safely. So I'm all for sexual education, easy access to contraception and discreet advice and assistance.
Yup, this here is a reasonable opinion to ha-

...but people are going to have sex anyway...
... and here is where my beef pops up like a looming awkward boner.
I am so sorry for this.
 I'm all for information and education, but not if it's justified like this. I know a lot of people who would normally be written off as going to be teen parents, and are not, thanks to either having parents who had them in college or older siblings having children they had to help support. With the information given to them by living that life already they determined they would not let it happen again.

 We can be responsible. Give us the proper information to make decisions for our lives and be responsible over the results.

 It's akin to teaching your kid how to dodge fast objects like cars because they are gonna eventually wander into the road. Being able to dodge fast objects is a good skill to have and there is nothing wrong with teaching your kid that, but it shouldn't be a patch on your parenting responsibility of keeping an eye on the kid.

The concept of 'friends with benifits' whilst completely goddamn retarded and I hate it forever, is in vogue.

Why do you hate it?

Personally, I hope that it eventually replaces traditional relationships. I despise romance.

Well, the world doesn't conform itself around one person's wishes, and the whole 'friends with benifits' thing is just plain stupid. It just meaningless.

Also why do you hate romance?

Because it makes sex into an sacred idol that must be propitiated with complicated yet inane rites, (more complicated and inane even than many other species' courtship methods; It seems that thanks to our longer lifespan we've decided that we can afford to waste our time) before it may be approached.
