Guest Post II

Mark this day. It is a big day in the history of Republic India because the Supreme Court, in a landmark (no, not the bookshop) 7-2 judgement, lowered the age of adulthood from 18 to 12. As of today, children cannot be pushed over anymore.

I have often written about how India became a republic in 1950, but many Indians still don’t have a say in the process. Well, notch one up for our republic. There will be no more forced homeworks, curtailed wii hours and no more busting into the toilet when a kid shags to pictures from playboy (and there will be some mighty spirited shags tonight, as I write).

Finally, twelve year old men and women will not be discrimianted anymore! Fucking a 12 year old is not pedophilia, provided it is a consensual act. To clarify, the ruling decriminalizes only consensual sex involving twelve-year old men and women. Section 377 can still be used to prosecute coercive sex or sex with a minor hence understood as boys and girls younger than or equal to eleven years of age. And that’s just fine. As long as consenting adults can do whatever they fucking want.

This doesn’t mean that we have suddenly become an inclusive society. But at least everyone aged 12 can vote and participate in sexual activities. How big is that?
