Rape laws deal with todays society.

Which is all fine and dandy. But there is several million years of evolution working against them.

less then 200 years ago people getting married at 12 wasn't unheard of.

18 is a silly age.

BTW just check how well this law actually works. the kids still have sex. they just don't tell anyone. STD's stats haven't changed much at all. same with teen pregnacy's.

a better idea would be for better education on safe sex and why sex isn't a good idea before 18. Not that will stop them, but put the effort in for the sake of the law.

oh and for the sake of controversy maybe crank down the age somewhat. maybe get that aging population issue fixed.
