On consent

When I started this blog, I think 7 years ago, I wasn’t sure it would last this long. I wasn’t even sure what I would write after the first few blog posts, but here we are. I hope all you who drop by find something useful, interesting, pleasurable or thought provoking as a take away.

And critics like Brian who are charitable in their disagreement. You make this a worthwhile venture. And all of you who make this blog great through your interactions, thank you.

But I digress.

There is a case in UK about consent between a man and his ailing wife and the comments of the judge is already raising heat.

On the same theme, three court of appeal judges have forced on a debate on Kenyans regarding the age of consent. One of the matters raised is the about lowering the age of consent from 18 to 16 and the issue of disproportionate punishment meted on boys for having sex with their agemates who later sometimes end up being treated as sex offenders.

What are your thoughts on either of the two matters.
