Finally! At long last! Effective 1st September 2006 the Isle of Man is to equalise the age of consent for gays with that for heterosexuals at sixteen when the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act comes into force. The way this change is being presented by some in the IOM, as indicated in the linked article, is odious!
As long-standing readers of this blog may remember I spent most of my teenage years living in the Isle of Man so although I am not Manx I take a particular interest in what happens there.
PS/ See also my earlier post in March this year, at the time The House of Keys (Manx Parliament) repealed section 38 of its Sexual Offences Act
