  • Status is not correct "If consensual homosexual sex is still criminalized, there cannot be an equal age of consent. "
  • Status is not correct "Homosexual sex is illegal. Therefore, the age for consent cannot be raised."
  • Status is not correct "When having homosexual sex is itself illegal, it is ridiculous to state that there's equal age of consent. You should have a "NOT APPLICABLE" criterion."
