The Null Device
A 12-year-old girl in Canada has been arrested and placed in secure custody for
indulging in sexual experimentation
11-year-old friends, shortly after she turned 12.
Because of laws concering age limits of consent and responsibility, a consent
defense is unavailable, and if the
court decides that any sexual activity took place, she will be automatically
convicted as a sex offender. Had she not turned 12 before the alleged incident
took place, there would have been no case.
Still, she should count herself lucky that she isn't living 40 years ago;
back then she could have been diagnosed with "excessive sexual urges" and
treated with a frontal lobotomy or electroshock therapy or something similar.
