2nd June 2001 Email to www.ageofconsent.com following up the email of 16th May and including the 21 May 2001 letter from Attorney-General Rod Welford as further evidence that they must amend their site.

Dear sir/madam,

On 16th May I sent you a message regarding the wrong information that you are currently displaying for my state of Queensland, Australia. You state that the age of consent for any sex between men is 18, which is not true.

Since my 16th May email I have received written confirmation dated 21 May 2001 from our new State Attorney-General confirming the statement made in 2000 by his predecessor, that the age of consent for ALL men and women is 16 for all sex except anal intercourse and that the age of consent for anal intercourse for EVERYONE is 18.

Below and attached is a copy of that letter. A transcript is stored at http://www.geocities.com/queerradio/AOC210501.htm.

Surely this statement by the Attorney General himself has more relevance than the document you currently refer to on your site, which has been clearly and obviously misinterpreted by someone who is not in a position of authority on the matter.

Also I have revised my website document http://www.geocities.com/queerradio/AgeOfConsent.htm which records my efforts to raise age of consent awareness in our state. I believe that the Attorney General must make a very public statement on this issue to ensure that the abundance of misinformation is officially countered.

Yours sincerely,
