It’s great they are changing that but fuck it took them a while.
Ok, before anyone looses their shit here, it’s important to know that the actual age of consent in Japan is *not* 13. That law states that it is legal for a person of the age of
13 or 14 to consent to sex with another person *of the same age*. The same goes for 15 to 17. And then 18 and up is just business as usual.
Edit: It’s also worth mentioning that this only covers the *federal* age of consent law. All of the prefectures already have independent laws raising the age of consent to 18.
The reform finally expands on the definition of rape in Japan. The current law was fked up.
Sexual intercourse with minors has always been illegal in Japan.
And ban those stupid sailor uniforms while you’re at it!
Okay but “sex crime overhaul” sounds like a Skyrim mod
How is this oniony?
