Retarded is such a terrible word. My mom used to work for community living and we had a down syndrome woman living with us who worked at a factory with other mentally handicapped people, and she found out that the woman who lived with us was havIng sex at her work with a few men. My mom was so angry and called the womans work, but they said there was nothing they could do she was of age and it was on her break. I think really people who are around mentally handicapped people should feel morally obligated to intervene and maybe talk to the person about it and either try and steer them in another direction or at least help them to take the neccessary precautions ie. Condoms or birth control. On the other hand not all mentally handicapped people are of the same IQ so where do you draw the line of letting them decide on their own ? Every scenario is different.

yes, for exactly the same reason children can't consent to have sex

Yes, because they are still people and should understand that they can't have sex until of age..

I'm not sure you understood the question

Yes... if they are of age but don't have the capacity to fully understand what they're consenting to, it should not be legal to have sex.

No. But they should only do it with other retards, and have plenty of retardlings.

Only with other retards.

I disagree. Children don't have sex because they're not physically developped for it. 30 year old man of 5 year old mentality has adult hormones.

Definitely not.

This is far too complicated to legislate; the capacity to consent is not solely based on age (or mental age). While it is broadly fair to place restrictions on children having sex (although how many of us would consider it wrong for teenagers to have sex with each other?) because even those who would consider themselves ready before it is legal won't have to wait too longer.
To decide that no one with a mental age below 18 in the USA, or 16 in the UK etc (and I don't think there are necessarily accurate ways of determining this) would be grossly unfair to those people with mental disabilities who fall in love and want to enjoy a physical relationship with their partner, or who just want to have sex full stop. Emotional maturity will have a lot more to do with their capacity to consent for many people, in any case.

What about a 15 year-old with 15 year-old hormones who is physically developed for sex?
