Exactly. The point of free speech is that even objectionable speech is allowed. As soon as the decision is made that there will be a moral standard applied to what is and isn't allowed, it all goes to shit within a couple of years because ... surprise ... everyone has a different idea of what is moral and what isn't. Guaranteed.

And calling jailbait immoral is quite funny beause 300 years ago people were marrying sixteen year olds and were happy to do so.

It's the other hand of moral relativism. Some moral relativists use it to excuse their behavior dispite it's harm to others. Some seek make a matter of morality where there is none.

There is nothing immoral about making logical arguments that minority classes happen to find inconvinient and there is nothing immoral about being attracted to what is biologically normal to be attracted to.

There is something immoral about living off of welfare, there is something immoral about using people's substance choices as an excuse to steal from them, there is something immoral about calling someone a freak who's normal.

Morallity is not a made up subject, but there are a lot of people who would like to make up a load of things around the subject.

Fucking moral relativists.

My Grandmother was 14 when she married my Grandfather at 20 and they lived a happy healthy life together.

Some states allow you to be charged for a crime as an adult at the age of 10, 12 or 13, but a 14 year old can't choose to willingly participate in one of the basic activities of most living beings, sex.

I don't understand any of it.

300? Try my grandparents. Ok, actually both were sixteen, but marrying at sixteen is no taboo even if it became uncommon here. Generally it happens when a girl gets pregnant. I live in a poor country, so things may be different from your country.
