From Conservapedia

Generally the age of consent is taken to mean the age when a person can legally consent to sexual intercourse with an older person without the older person being guilty of statutory rape. This article should be changed to reflect that. --Pnt 17:02, 20 August 2007 (EDT)

The first section seems to have taken care of that. Try a different wording to better suit your ideas about this subject. Samwell


Just to let everyone know - I thought the table was a bit too long, so I shortened it a bit - I would've made it even shorter - but having 4 columns alphabetically ordered vertically would just be to complicated for a new editor or an editor that hasn't mastered tables. Also, I added Puerto Rico as DC was on the list--Iduan 18:02, 21 August 2007 (EDT)


I've fixed this article to remove a number of false statements. I can't understand why someone would say TWICE that the most common age of consent in the USA (and the average worldwide) is 18 when in fact only 11 US states have that age, compared to 31 that set it at 16. This is not a close-run thing; it's very, very obvious. --SamTC 18:42, 9 November 2011 (EST)

But I did used to believe that most states had an age of consent of 16...and I was wrong, and Malke2010 tried to get me banned from wikipedia for repeating that false belief. Most jurisdictions set it at 18, not 16. Malke set me straight. --Burke39 01:56, 10 November 2011 (EST)
Can you provide a reliable source for the age of consent in each state, per Conservapedia Commandment 1? State statutes are online nowadays. Thanks. DavidE 15:51, 23 December 2011 (EST)
