Same difference, no?

They should be able to party while it is around, but they shouldn't drink it.

'Tis their choice to drink it. I would never drink, but I cannot control their choices. If they do nothing to harm others while drinking or after, then I won't give a darn.

Not only do I think it's okay, I don't think it's even remotely okay to stop it from occurring, whether it's around alcohol in the sense of multiple people being around it or around alcohol in the sense of the walls of their stomach or other body parts around it.

It's going to happen anyway, sure it's not good for 'underage' people to get drunk, but the first time you get proper access to alchohol you abuse it. Alchohol is intended to be abused. By enforcing age restrictions on alchohol you have to put a shed load of effort into the matter, and all you do is delay the inevitable and prevent people developing a reasonable relationship with alchohol earlier.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Why do you ask? She's obviously a person posting in the forum... how do you expect her to answer this question and why do you assume you must or should know everyone who posts?

It depends on what you mean by "partying." Having a few drinks with friends and getting stoned is one thing -- being young and doing hard drugs you're not ready for is another. I personally think that anyone under 18 has absolutely no business drinking because teens are fugging retarded enough as it is. I don't think the drinking age should be 21 though.

Anyway, as others have said, underage partying is going to happen regardless of how we feel about it. To me, responsibility is the most important thing. I'd prefer that young'ns were around responsible (experienced and/or mature) people and for there to be at least one sober person around to keep an eye on things. No driving, obviously, or other stupid sh-t.

Various things go through on this. It is not a simple "yes/no" answer. Many children that never experience alcohol and are taught that it is evil for chilren (but some how okay for adults) often find themselves getting wasted and have a much higher risk of alcohol poisoning, thrashing their liver, or becoming alcoholics. While children that experience a controlled amount (a few drinks, not to the point of passing out or vomitting) often develop a much higher respect for alcohol and its effects and so a less likely to damage their bodies with alcohol. The risk side to that is that when children drink large amounts of alcohol it (binge drinking) does a much bigger number on their liver and brain.

So do I think minors should "party" with alcohol? Yes, if it is in a responsible fashion. No, if it the partying is irresponsible and risking long term negative effects.

It's interesting that underage to Americans is accepted in most other parts of the world. Germans can drink beer at the age of sixteen, and it's pretty strong stuff! And if accompanied, they can have beer at fourteen.

Partying implies a level of being out-of-control. Not a good idea at any age as it can lead to bad decisions.

As long as the people are drinking in moderation I don't see too much of a problem with it. Just having a couple drinks is much different than going out and getting smashed. Yes, people in Europe drink at a younger age, but at the same time they learn responsiblity. Binge drinking among Europeans is quite a bit less common than it is among North Americans.

I completely agree with INH about that. I think it's just the human nature to want something you're not allowed to have.
