i got this strange sample copy of FHM today, they were giving them out free at this book store. given its readership there was a thing about the different ages of consent around the world. it alters a lot between different continents and regions for example europes minimum is 13 (spain) and 18 is the max (turkey) but 15-16 tends to be the average, similair to world average outside south america which is 13-14.
what shocked me though was oman, which is 9. thats 3 years lower than the one above it. even in good old saudi its 15. im hoping its just they forgot to update the law after writing it when they first discovered ink. im sure most or all people in oman have more sense than this but its still lunacy. i felt like crying when i read it. apparently their defence is, its only allowed in marriage. which means you can marry and fuck a 9 year old didnt we start frowning on this stuff? i always thaught oman was an interesting place since i found it was the first or second place in asia with a lamborghini dealership but as you can imagine my minds changed A LOT.
i was shocked as well that so many places in europe were 13-14 (canada as well) have the law makers met a 14 year old? ironically enough its good old uk with the highest teen pregnancy rate and the legal age is 16.
but yesh, 9?????????????!!!!!!!
