  • Status is not correct "Despite the age of consent having indeed been set at 14 years, regardless of gender, in 1940, age of consent has been equal since homosexuality was decriminalized, in 1830. Since 1830, age of consent was equal, but in 1940 it was set at 14 years for all persons."
  • Date is incorrect "It appears that age of consent has been 14 and equal since 1940, but it appears that age of consent was equal ever since it was legalized in 1830, at the same time homosexuality became legal, age of consent was also equal. I believe that is the case."
