A pro-science marxist who is labeled with Autism and ADHD. Psychiatry is a psuedoscientific tool of oppression mostly used by the bourgeoisie and we should oppose it!
Dealing with silent reflux.
I got curious about what the Bolsheviks would have done so I searched.
Interestingly enough, the Bolsheviks seemed to have went for no fixed or constant age of consent; instead, they used the presence of puberty as a primary factor for the age of consent. Courts would use medical testing to determine if a person was going through puberty.
In the 1922 RSFSR Criminal code of article 166 and 167:
4. Преступления в области половых отношений
Половое сношение с лицами, не достигшими половой зрелости, карается - лишением свободы на срок не ниже трех лет со строгой изоляцией.
Половое сношение с лицами, не достигшими половой зрелости, сопряженное с растлением, или удовлетворение половой страсти в извращенных формах, карается
4. Sexual offences
Sexual intercourse with persons who have not reached puberty is punishable - by deprivation of liberty for a term not less than three years with strict isolation.
Sexual intercourse with persons who have not reached puberty зрелос, involving corruption, or the satisfaction of sexual passion in perverted forms, is punishable - by deprivation of liberty for a term not less than five years.
Same for the 1926 RSFSR Criminal code:
- Sexual intercourse with persons who have not reached puberty, involving corruption or satisfaction of sexual passion in perverted forms, - imprisonment for a term of up to eight years.
Sexual intercourse with persons who have not reached puberty, committed without the specified aggravating signs, - imprisonment for a term of up to three years.
Debauchery of minors or minors committed by means of debauched acts against them, - imprisonment for a term of up to five years.
Sexual intercourse involving physical violence, threats, intimidation or using the victim’s helpless state by deception (rape) - […]
Entering into marriage with a person who has not reached the age of marriage, - imprisonment for a term of up to two years. Entering into a marriage with a person who has not reached puberty , or forcing him to enter into such a marriage - the measures provided for in Article 151 of this Code .
So, for example,
What I wonder is what would happen to people older than 18 who never got puberty, like some people with Kallmann Syndrome. Would they still be considered minors then?
Of course this is for the RSFSR; I don’t know what the other soviet republics did.
The current surviving socialist states seem to have stuck to the more common fixed age of consent concept:

I thought that was implied through the general term damage, that’s why I used the general term damage and not just physical. Sorry if it came off that way.
(Technically, all damage (physical, emotion, neurological, etc.) is physical as it affects the human body, but that shouldn’t and hopefully doesn’t downplay their effects and importance of recognition.)
To attempt answering your question, I dont think its solely a matter of sexual development of the body. Mental development is much more important, especially the ability to manage human relationships and set boundaries.
I didnt think about brain development until now. Yes, that is important.
Age of consent is also not simply a binary question of yes or no
Yes. through dialectical materialism, sexual coercion can’t be simplified into merely use of physical force; there is also economic coercion (through capital), and they all influence consent.
One approach I know about is that relationships between young teenagers are only legal up to an age difference of 2 years or so, not with adults.
It also makes sense that parents should be able to decide if their child can enter in a relationship with a specific person, after all they know their child best.
It’s also said that the child knows best; and I think that children should learn what makes for a good relationship (no damage of all types).
But you’re probably gonna get banhammered anyway. Thanks to horde of libertarians in the internet every discussion about those things is automatically considered bad faith pedo bait everywhere except liberast pits.
Yep. They suck. 😒
That’s why internet marxist stance is “do not talk about it”. From what i see in the real life marxist theoreticians also basically just accepted current societal norm without any comments.
You’re assuming age of consent is about puberty, reproduction, but age of consent is about being intellectually capable of understanding and having responsibility for actions, which isn’t something you can measure in a physical sense.
“the conclusion of sexual development allows a person to have sex without sustaining damage” this is baseless and incorrect
How is it baseless and incorrect? Without puberty, humans would never become able to sexually reproduce safely and also develop into adults.
fucking creepy as shit, tbh
What’s creepy about saying that ending puberty allows a person (or adult in that case) to perform sex safely (without sustaining damage)?
Article conclusion: take antidepressants if you’re told to and don’t worry about your gut microbiome, even though that’s probably what made you depressed in the first place. We only treat symptoms, not causes.
Typical antidepressants are meant to manipulate serotonine levels. However, there is to this day not one study that clearly shows that there is a connection between serotonine levels and depression.
Serotonin levels in the brain respond to antidepressants.
Yeah, because Psychiatrists are allowed to lie about the phenomena of the brain.
Those pills, however, really make you complacent. Many people report “feeling less” and being “emotionally numb” after taking them.
Yep. They also cause health problems.
Right now, even primary care physicians are giving these pills out like candy. So many people take these pills. Ridiculous numbers from the UK: 17% are taking antidepressants, and 13% are on opioid pain prescriptions. That is absolutely mind boggling.
It’s straight up fraud by the rich drug capitalists.
The rise in ADHD drugs also occurred during the War on Drugs. Meth and Weed use by the oppressed are punished by the rich, yet they turn around and promote it to children. It comes off like cultural appropriation.
I only ever took plant based antidepressants, and the older I get, the more happy I am about that decision. Before anyone wants to say that those can’t work: They were tested to be almost equally effective, but without the side effects. And I wasn’t getting numb or anything, and I still have my libido.
Do you have a resource on the testing they did?

Physicians can persecute anyone they want through psychiatry.
Procapitalist physicians have become police collaborators.
