No age bar on having NON PENETRATIVE SEX

February 1, 2011

This is neither my idea nor these are my words but this is the news on the front page of Times of India

“ BILL SEEKS TO ALLOW 12 YEAR OLDS TO HAVE NON PENETRATIVE SEX

Don’t believe me then do read

http://epaper.timesofindia.com/Default/Scripting/ArticleWin.asp?From=Archive&Source=Page&Skin=TOINEW&BaseHref=TOIM/2011/02/01&PageLabel=1&EntityId=Ar00106&ViewMode=HTML&GZ=T

 

That means 12 year olds can indulge in sexual acts (except for the penetration) with children of their age.

 

Even in advanced countries like USA and UK the official age for having consent sex is 16 -18 then how come a country like ours can encourage the not so developed (psychologically, emotionally, and physically ) children to have sex?

Is it the sign of progress/growth/advancement?

Or is it the sign of further deterioration of our moral ethics?

Will this bill not encourage young ones to indulge in immoral acts?

Are we not corrupting the young innocent minds by legally permitting them to indulge in all the foreplay and the associated acts?

According to the said bill

Any consensual non penetrative sexual ac is not an offence when engaged in between two children who are both over 12 years.

As far as my understanding goes in future if the bill is passed then for the children  till the actual penetration is there no other sexual act will be punishable.

That means they can go to any extent and cross any limit to have physical relation with children of their age or within 2 years of their age

I wonder what was Ms. Aparna Bhat thinking when she along with others drafted this bill?

According to her this bill is to decriminalize sexual exploration by children.

So if the said bill sent by the ministry of women and child development to all the states is approved and passed that means we can say bye bye to our moral values and coolly watch our young ones to enjoy sexual acts?

    Yeah I don’t get it! now 12 year olds can have consensual sex? I shudder when I imagine how this law can be misused by child molesters!!!!

      probably our leaders/law makers feel that this is sign of progress. INDIA SHINING 🙂

    When Government can not do any thing to arrest price rise, scams after scam and rampant corruption in all walks of life, they must have thought why not to go ahead in this matter…..

      you are right. atleast the Govt can proudly say ” we are doing something for the society”

  3. February 1, 2011 8:44 pm

    This seems ridiculous. Politicians who do so much of moral policing for publicity are taking to such bills. To be honest I didn’t even know about sex when I was 12 or even say 15. Such bills will only help child molesters and nothing more

    if the bill is passed. I m sure parents will think twice before sending their children out

    whoa… this is news to me..
    and its an outrageous decision.

  6. February 1, 2011 11:52 pm

    Now, because of few insane people who proposed the bill and whoever sanctions the bill, children will suffer confinements from their parents. Sigh! Why don’t these people leave them alone?

  7. February 2, 2011 8:47 am

    I don’t believe this. And they actually had the audacity to publish this is in the front pge of a national newspaper. Imagine a 10 year old reading the paper and asking, ‘Amma, what is Non – PENETRATIVE?”. Whose bright idea was this?

    • February 2, 2011 10:31 am

      Newspapers do this to sensationalize. Electronic media does this too. And then they want children to be treated like criminals for something they don’t even clearly understand the implications of.

    Not sure you got the point here. Currently if two 12-13 year olds get physical and parents of one kid lodge a complaint, the other kid can be put behind bars destroying his/her life forever. This bill simply ensures that kids are not treated like regular criminals for something whose implications they dont completely understand. Also, remember this applies to cases only when both partners are minor – an adult trying to abuse a kid doesnt get protected by the new bill.

  9. February 2, 2011 10:29 am

    Anju I feel the Bill only stops the children from being treated like rapists and criminals, if they are found to be involved in such activity.

    Newspapers love to sensationalize such news I feel. Firstly, we refuse to guide our children about sex because we fear sex education will encourage them to have sex, when actually that’s the only way to protect them from sexual predators. Most Indians learn about sex from vulgar C grade movies, through porn and through their peer group. Then we expect them to understand what’s right or wrong on their own.

    I feel the law should be very firm against abusers but children should not be treated like criminals. Most of the time, the children don’t even know the implications of their acts.

    The society should make sure the children can fearlessly tell the teachers, parents etc if they are uncomfortable with some adult’s behavior, if they fear they might be seen as criminals, will they ever dare to complain?

    Hmmm, really surprising, to say the least.

    Totally agree with the comments of Indian Homemaker.

    Though somewhat out of context, but I also believe that refusing to talk about sex is the major reason for our ever rising population. Many people dont even know how the reproductive system functions and the disadvantages of having pregnancies in succession.

    I think people who indulges in child abuses, will support this “nonsense” bill. This is stupid, inhuman.

    Okay this is just weird. Even if this bill is aimed at preventing children from being treated like rapists it still will have more ill-effects than advantages. Besides can children really tell the difference between penetrative and non-penetrative sex?

      I dont see any ill effect as such. It clearly mentions that its applicable only when both partners are minor and have less than 2 years of age difference between then and only when its consentual (from both partner’s perspective) – so any case of child abuse doesnt get protected by the bill. And if you are suggesting that it can lead to more teenagers getting intimate, I’d say that legal repurcussions anyways never prevented teeenagers from getting physical. If two teenagers want to but hesitate to get intimate today, its not becase they fear legal proceedings (in face most of them wont even be aware of the fact that its a criminal activity) its because they fear that their parents wont approve of it. So, I dont see how decriminalizing this can cause a problem.

      • February 3, 2011 9:15 pm

        But there is another angle as well. Fear of parents may vanish once it is made legal.

  13. February 3, 2011 4:40 pm

    Sounds horrible. I can’t imagine a 12+ year old say “It’s legal now. Just leave us alright!” if they’re caught in the act(impenetrable sex, however)… This would only leave those kids more prone to sexual harassment …
    A bad bad idea :-s

    Whoever thought of this kind of bill is sick. Its another step towards making our society morally bankrupt.
    Just like that…

    Cheers!!

    Did they need a bill for something that was already been done?
    So now it is formalized :)….that’s about all!

  17. February 3, 2011 10:04 pm

    I guess government has more important things to look after, don’t know why they are wasting their and the nation time and money in all this foolish and funny rules.

  18. February 3, 2011 10:36 pm

    12 year olds are sexually curious to the point they will do that? I am sorry but were they drunk when they even put this draft ahead?

    Its not possible to approve this law. But TOI lost its credibility over the years. Just wants to sensetionalize the news. Just another payola media.

    Utter nonsense and inhumane decision by the law makers. In such dread times, I can only hope that the modern India and modern parents give right education to their kids and make them understand that this is not guided and governed by stupid law makers but is a matter of peaceful, respected, happy and prosperous life.

    Sex no matter penetrative or non penetrative is not kids game. Everything has its own time and requirement and no one should cross the lines.

    I hope the new generation understands the real meaning of getting physical at the right age and time before it is too late.

  20. February 10, 2011 10:27 am

    The moot question is whether 12 year olds know that it is a crime?
