What now?

Well, I have completed my readings of the Federal Constitution and the Statute of the Child and Adolescent. So what else is there to do? Well, now comes the really difficult part, which is to build a bridge between the scientific articles and books I have and the laws. In fact, from what I have observed, the ban on child sexuality conflicts with the rights guaranteed to children and adolescents. Then one may speak of vexation, humiliation, and oppression. I have a lot to read and write before the final text (codenamed the Lolipill) is finished. I like to think of it as my “informal masters dissertation.”

A friend of mine gave me two advices: to write about the age of consent within the context of the minor’s sexual self-determination and to write with lawyers and judges as target audience. And that was where my previous text, the Statutory Rape, was failing. It had no target audience in particular. We know that, after all, laws are enforced by the judiciary. When one law conflicts with another, the judge must decide what to do. Considering that there are judges who absolve relationships engaged before the age of fourteen, it would not be entirely alien to believe that it is possible to strengthen the legal arguments of defense lawyers hired by a defendant. As I said before, there are three ways to eliminate a law, one of which is the implosive way. If the law does not convict or has difficulty convicting, what is its use?

Although I can not legally tell you to break the law, it is not illegal, as far as I know, to help you defend yourself if you are about to face trial, especially if you are underage. True, law enforcement is not my area, but reading the laws is not even that hard and I do not think I’m stupid to the point of not having understood anything I’ve read. So, although I can offer arguments, their validity depends on the judge. This is going to be fun. Let’s see how far we can go with this idea!

Quando eu me formei, minha turma teve que fazer um juramento coletivo. Como minha religião não me permite jurar nem prometer, eu só mexi os lábios, mas resolvi viver com os objetivos do juramento em mente de qualquer forma.

  1. Greetings Yuri.

    If you are planning to sue the Attorney General of Brazil I wish you luck. All Internment camps are exactly the same. In 2009 I took the Attorney General of Canada to the Supreme court because of the illegal Age of Sexual consent increase passed by the Conservative government that raised the age of sexual consent from 14 to 18 and also peppered the Criminal Code with all manner of absurd restrictions and means to arrest more innocent people. This was indeed a direct violation of the charter of rights and Freedoms here which has been built into the constitution. You cannot raise the age of sexual consent for the same reason you cannot arbitrarily raise the voting age. A right granted is protected by the Charter.
    Well I appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada only to be called an “officious intervener” and denied standing on behalf of public interest. They claimed that in order to have standing to pursue the matter I would have to personally break the “New Laws” and personally be charged myself. It was advised that I use cases before the courts instead.
    Well… in Canada we have no Criminal Lawyers… only “Plea-bargain Bitches”. In Canada most individuals charged are told to plea guilty even when they are innocent just to settle the matter out of court. This is why it has been 9 years since I went to the Supreme Court and still no person charged under these new laws have used the Constitution to overthrow them. All the lawyers here tell them and most other criminals to settle out of court and plea guilty. I have spoken to many who did this even though they deny guilt because they were told to by their “lawyer”. “Plea Bargaining” should not be permitted here or in anywhere else. They use it now because of the sheer volume of innocent victims charged… too many cases to bring before the Courts. So being innocent until proven guilty is a myth.

    Here is the book I published that contains all of the documents used in court.

    I wish you all the best.


    1. I’m not planning to sue anyone. My goal here is to provide means of defense to people who were caught in relationships before age 14, specially if both parties are minors. It’d be too troublesome to change the law right now, so I’m focusing on undermining it’s ability to convict.
