Re: So in a future distopean world
What is a child?
I had parents - I am their child so I am a child.
I believe that someone is classsed as a child in comparison to someone else if they are aged less than half of the elder's age +7.
I now believe that a child is someone under the age of 16 becase I'm in the UK.
I now believe that a child is someone under the age of 18 because I moved to the USA.
Now I think that a child is someone under the age of 14 because I moved somewhere else.
But now I think someone is a child when they are less than 18 because they are nude and in a photograph.
Changing of definitions happens all ready and it is terrifying. The other edge of pardons like this is retroactive laws. Now THAT is the dangerous road.
And let's remember that it's not just kiddy fiddlers that are targeted by anti sex laws. Yet anyone who falls foul will be labelled as such.
The whole thing is a mess.
