Just cause your under the age of 18 doesn't mean you shouldn't be allowed to speak your mind, and doesn't mean that you don't have things worth saying, or reasons for doing something.

Misspelled "deserve" and "misspell".

oh lol.

Well its kinda a personal thing that I know happens to other ppl too.
I got grounded for yelling when my 2 year old bro poured water on some legal papers, then tried to explain. I got grounded for arguing, and it still bugs me.

Yikes. Don't have siblings, but I've seen younger siblings win disputes with older ones simply by virtue of age. It pisses me off.

I have 3 bros and a sis. The oldest is 8 and the twins are 2. I lose many battles.

The thing I hate is people think they just need to shut everyone else up just cause their younger. Age has nothing to do with whether your thoughts are/should be important or not.

Agreed, in principle. But is there something more specific you'd like to ask/share?

Why do people act like age has to do with being important? I suppose thats a question I'd really like answered. I heard this kid like 8 or so beat his 4 month old sister to death and the law didn't do anything about it.

Because they are ageist.

Well, children are notorious for thinking that they know more than they actually do (every generation goes through it), but yes, they still have a voice and still have a right to express their views.

I don't think, though, you'll have too much opposition to that belief. Did somebody say something specific?

Not arguing that.

Didn't think I would, especially since most members are pretty young. Just keep getting in trouble for saying stuff, even if its just little.

And Panda, not usually. They do get in trouble for it. Are clothes sewn to the body?are burqas burned when they touch hair?

Agreed in principle as well, you're just doing a terrible job of stating your point.

Essentially, I find it wrong that parents can indoctrinate their children and punish them for not agreeing with them. I find it wrong that having a child is considered a "right" but the child's rights aren't considered nearly as important. I find it wrong that age is automatically considered a deciding factor in an argument--ie, "well you'll learn someday, I'm right". Etc.

With that said, minors/young people who want to be taken seriously do need to learn to spell, lovelife.

Yes it does. Children should be seen and not heard.

It's just like how a child supposably isn't allowed to choose their own faith until they're an adult. That pretty much means the parents are free to brainwash their children.

Thats soooo mean. I hate kids. Once their 10 years or older then I can handle them. But little kids *cries at the thought* They wouldn't live in a house with me. (says the one with 4 younger siblings. The oldest being 7 years younger)

Yea, I got lucky I suppose since I wasn't subjected to that sort of thing. Many of my friends were though. :(

good for you sucks for them. My mom "thinks" she isn't trying to brainwash me (or thinks that I think she isn't) She just tries to make me feel guilty if I ever express that I don't agree with christianity. Actually she pointed several contradictions out to me, then said we're supposed to live with them.

That's not unusual among those of us who believe that children have the same rights as other human beings tbh.

Lol yeah.

And what do you mean R_R? I just hate small kids, and because I value (love) life then I wish them to not be in my pressence. It is not nice for me or the children for them to be wished upon me. That said mom thought she liked kids. Then she had me.
