STATUTORY RAPE LAWS: WHAT A BUMMER! That was the title of a mock-article for the Yale Law Journal when I was in law school. But this post from The Volokh Conspiracy shows a strong degree of “progressive” support (back in the 1970s) for setting the age of consent at 12. That seems low to me, though I think 18 is likely too high. My thoughts here.
