In GA, under 16 cannot consent. IQ is a non-issue in GA. Obviously a person needs to be conscious in order to consent. An unconscious person cannot consent to anything. Over 16, plus intoxicated can consent.

The legal age in my state is 16 years. With respect to the other areas you mention, it is a fact question for a jury to determine whether, given the person's I.Q., state of intoxication or state of consciousness, that person is capable of, or did give, actual consent.

Washington state, age of consent is 16. However there is a lot more to "consent" than biological age. What is the person's mental capacity? Is there a position of power or authority between the two parties i.e. teacher, coach, employer? Does the person have the ability to consent i.e. Is the person intoxicated or under the influence of some drug. It goes to physical and emotional capacity to consent. Just because the person is over age 16 does not mean consent is automatic.
