Wow! I read the article, I read some of the comments, and then I ask myself: "Is this by any chance the forum of the British National Party or some other fascist organization?" because it certainly makes me feel that way.

How can people that describe themselves as anarchists, use the same repressive arguments about intergenerational relationships as the people that we detest and fight against? Kids cannot give informed consent? Really? This is nothing short of an insult against young kids. Should I believe that the people that frequent this website are against youth liberation? Since by what I read here I take it you believe, like the present (patriarchal, authoritarian and heteronormative) society that children are inept in making correct choices and therefore the (insert repressive statist institution here) should make decisions for them.

I am against any kind of rape or other type of violence against children and young people, that should be clear to anyone! But in the same time I cannot understand how an anarchist website has transformed in a tribune for authoritarian statist views about sexuality. Not all things are black or white. You of all people should know that!

It should?

I was a kid once, and so were my contemporaries. And I can tell you, from experience, that kids are stupid. Adults can be pretty dumb, too, but that's their fault. The kids just don't know any better.

Making "correct" choices are often hard for adults. Kids, who don't have the life-experience, the knowledge, the memories of adult, have an even harder time to know what to do when facing difficult choices.

No, it's not clear to most, that you are against taking advantage of children's innocence and willingness to follow/obey adults. Rape, exploitation and molestations don't have to be physically violent to be a violation of a person's will, inclination, wish.

Kids' brains are functionally different. Kids tend not to consider the consequences of actions when they make decisions.
So accepting the concept of competence at consent being age-related need not mean one is adopting statist views of authority. Just accepting a biological reality.

*sigh* This gives us actual anarchists a headache.

Please tell your kids, all you parents, that if anybody does or says anything that includes "Don't tell your mom and dad" or " We have to keep this secret", that's a clear signal they are up to no good - so TELL YOUR PARENTS right away.

Libertarianism. Until something goes wrong.

And you are wrong when you so much as think the way you do, OP.

This is why you will always be a fringe group.
