Inconsistencies Across States And Territories
Our broader long-term goal of harmony is strongly supported. We clearly outlined 3 asks as a starting point:— Grace Tame (@TamePunk) November 12, 2021
1. That the offence of ‘persistent sexual abuse of a child’ be worded as such. QLD, SA, the ACT and the NT still use ‘maintaining’ or ‘engaging in a sexual relationship’.
3. That a singular definition of the physical act of sexual intercourse be agreed upon by all states and territories. This definition is mostly consistent across the jurisdictions but there are still outliers which warrant a collaborative approach.— Grace Tame (@TamePunk) November 12, 2021
