Age of consent reform is an effort to change age of consent laws. Proposed reforms typically include raising, lowering, or abolishing the age of consent, applying or not applying close-in-age exemptions, changing penalties, or changing how cases are examined in court. A related issue is whether or not to apply ages of consent to homosexual relationships that are different from those applied to heterosexual relationships. Organized efforts have ranged from academic discussions to political petitions. There have been many initiatives to raise and lower the age of consent.

Opposition to miscegenation, framed as preserving so-called racial purity , is a typical theme of racial supremacist movements. Although the term "miscegenation" was formed from the Latin miscere "to mix" plus genus "race" or "kind", and it could therefore be perceived as value-neutral, it is almost always a pejorative term used by people who believe in  racial superiority and purity. In Spanish America, the term mestizaje , which is derived from mestizo —the blending of European whites and Indigenous peoples of the Americas , is used to refer to production of offspring by people considered to be of different racial types. In the present day, the word miscegenation is avoided by many scholars, because the term suggests that race is a concrete biological phenomenon, rather than a categorization imposed on certain relationships.
