Underage drinking

remember the law as now changed a girl drunk can't give consent and the boy will be guilty of rape. that's not something anyone wants. is it a chance event that teenage pregnancy and drinking are both high in the same areas.

So a drunk girl cant make her own decisions, while a drunk boy can? sounds sexist to me!

 

Haha...initially I thought the same but after giving it a bit of thought i suppose it stands to reason the way the male anatomy is made up that it would be impossible for them to be raped if they were -that- drunk ( the physiological make up would prevent it , no? )

I think you need to give it yet more thought. Young guys do indeed get raped regularly, but not by females. Work it out. Not very haha either.

is it not odd that female rape is funny but male rape is gross. face it if your a victim of either your going to be suffering. i agree with the new law if a girl or male is that drunk that they cant give consent then its rape.

 

but were getting off topic. with the new evidence that abusing drink kills one in five maybe there is a need for the supermarkets to fence off the booze sales from the rest of the store and have the need for proof of age for everyone. maybe restrict the number of places that sell it as well.

Although that is a great step paul and infact one that is already moving through legislation at the moment it only solves part of the problem, the majority of underage drinkers get their alcohol from people who are legally allowed to buy it who then pass on the alcohol to the youngsters.

hey hang on a minute, I think all rape is gross my 'haha' was aimed at my own logical ( consequently illogical ) conclusion about male rape nothing to do with the physical act! I dont think anyone ( except maybe the comedian above! ) would think rape in any of its forms was funny!

so do you think moving the age up would work.

 

I think they'd go find something else to do and not necessarily better.

 

Solvent abuse is usually a habit of younger adolescents whereby they inhale the fumes and vapours from solvents such as glue and aerosol cans. It is less popular now with more stringent sales regulations and easier access to other drugs.

Nope, and to be honest I cant understand how anybody thinks that moving the minimum age for drinkig up would help. Say it was changed to 21, all that would do would be to make underage drinkers of the 18-20 year olds, exacerbating the problem.

That's kind of how I felt about it too.

 

Also - student unions. Most folk go to uni between the ages of 17 and 19, if the drinking age was raised a lot of them would lose money.

I was watching this documentary about big decisions for teenagers when they are growing up to adulthood. There was 17 year old girl who left school because of her drinking problems.

Halfway through that documentary, the liver specialist talked to her about how much she drinks in a weekend, what I couldn't believe was that she drunk 79 UNITS IN ONE WEEKEND!!! Her stepmother was so shocked that she fainted in the doctor's room and the teen also 'met' 8 strangers and she had been tested for all STIs and she was negative from them all.
