There should be an age limit on this site, who agrees?

i think there should totally be an age limit on this site, a lot of adults talk very explicitly on here including myself, or there should be an age selection we can choose from who gets to see our post, i also think its weird how they dont alow dirty pictures on here but all the explicit conversation is allowed... why not allow both? Im all for it.
there's too many young kids on here, I've 13 year olds commenting on my post. Its not cool. Some of us have no business speaking with minors, especially about the usual topics i see on here.

  • The problem with the site, is that it's free. If you find the site, and sign up, it doesn't matter what age you put, they're not going to check your i. d. or anything.. it's free. Once they start charging, (if they ever do), then they can put age limits

    • Yea you're right , it is totally free.
      I've only been here a couple days and was suprised to see 13 year olds on here.

    • I saw a question on here that should not be viewable by 13 year olds, 14 and all the way up to at least 18, if not 21, or even 26. they removed it, asap

  • Without strict controls, anyone can sign onto this site and claim to be 13, or 21, or 50. There is no age verification used here. Whatever birthdate you choose will cement your age onto this site.

    Yes there are some topics on here that are best left for older individuals, but then it becomes a veiled form of censorship. GAG is a microcosm of society, as is the entire internet. Young children have access to far worse material than the few risqué comments made here.

    Let's keep it open and keep it civil.

  • These kids will talk about whatever they want to talk about, do whatever they want to do. Restricting them from this site will just make them go to another site. The way I see it, I'd rather an adult give them good, prudent advice than have them get the kind of terrible, false rumor and urban legends that most of us adults remember hearing when we were that age. The less misinformation they get at their age, the better off they'll be later on.

  • 1.) Anyone can lie about their age on the internet.
    2.) They can hear foul language everywhere: on a street, on TV, in schools etc. So what now, you should lock your kid up in a basement and isolate him from the rest of the world?

    My stance on foul language is quite neutral. I use it myself sometimes in order to underline some emotion or stance in conversation. Besides, foul words are usually shorter and get you to the point faster, yet a sentence still doesn't lose it's meaning. I mean you can type "that food was terrible" or you can type "that food was shit" and you still get the point. Besides, calling food "shit" better underlines how bad it is than just "terrible".

    Cussing for it's own sake like Jay in "Jay & Silent Bob" during intro near the grocery store is a bad of a different story. I believe if someone's using language like this, their posts are probably deleted, because while I've seen a lot of posts with some foul language in them, I've never a post where foul language is more than 50% of words. And I've been here for 4-5 years now I think.

    It is the parent's responsibility to explain to their kids what is a foul language, whether they should use it or not etc. Don't try to transfer that responsibility from parents to some website online.

  • I have no problem with them being on here. In school, Many of them are already seeing and hearing about things that us adults only dealt with as adults. The key is, To use discretion when posting. This is kind of like Facebook. I don't mind giving advice to some of our younger ones when they don't have too many good role models in the world.

    • you're missing the point, you're still a minor by law. Anyone who is an adult shouldn't be having these kind of conversations with minors. you are about to literally barely cross that minor to adult line, fine i get it. But as you can see, i listed specifically little kids, i mentioned a 13 year old. & no i wouldn't say you're more grown than me or anyone else on this thread. Being legal to drink does not make you more grown or whatever orher reasons you may have. You are considered a child still, sorry.

    • To me you are a minor and i will always see you as that as long as im in america and your still 17.

  • allow explicit images? girl u cray?

    while i understand ur angle, i actually think it's we that need to remember that all these ages will view our posts. just because u wish to say or show something explicit, doesn't mean u have to go ahead with it. u can easily fashion ur question or response in a way that doesn't come across as extremely forward about a certain issue. also, u can block these users if it bothers u so much. GaG is about welcoming users of all ages.

  • I absolutely do not see any problem with underage members 13 and up talking about sexual matters and reading about them. It is what they will face in one, two, or at the most five years after the age of 13. It is what they will face in their lives in future no matter what happens. What do you want to do? make nuns hermits of under 18 girls and boys? keep them out of any sexual topic and when they get 18 they face a completely different world than the limited world they were in?

    they should know. they should start to know everything as they start to grow up as a teenager. But what should be considered here is that they should be carefully guided and taken care of by any people who advice them and especially by their parents, while they should be relatively free too to express themselves and their opinions. It is only in this way that they grow to be adults.

    Teenage years are a very short passing period that everyone is in between childhood and adulthood in his or her life. It is not a period to remain and it is not a period as childhood and adulthood. it is 7 years at the most, for many who mature sooner less than 5 years. And the only important thing about it is to make these years a bridge in the safest and most secure way possible to connect childhood to adulthood. Where teenagers walk on the bridge being taken care of by their parents and the society, but heading towards the other side of the bridge that is adulthood they should be informed and even experience what they will face in the future.

    that is the only way to treat teenagers in the best way possible.

    also contradictory opinions and bad advice will always exist. it is up to the teenager himself or herself to think, read, and conclude and find the best way for himself or herself, this is the most important part of becoming an adult.

    • That wasn't my point. I dont want to interact with teenagers about explicit content, nor do i want them commenting on my post with their advice. Its not appropriate. Im talking about dirty sex talking, not your basic sex ed. If you feel compfortanble talking with 13 year olds about your sex with your man and letting them give you advice, thats you, personally for me its not right.

      What you're talking about is a whole different thing.
      I agree with you on certain pieces but this thread is opposite of what you wrote.

    • This person has hitler in their username.

    • I know it may be uncomfortable for you to talk to them but you can tolerate their presence on the topics. in what other way they want to learn more about the relationship between a couple the benefits and issues about it? it is through hearing others experiences. We all learn through hearing and seeing others experiences and also experiencing ourselves.

      Those fantasies exist in a teenager's mind too and in the wildest ways. they are not specific to adults though acting upon those fantasies may be relevant for adults. So let them see and even talk about it, if you care enough you can guide them, if you do not it is just hearing an experience for them.

      try to tolerate them more than ignoring them. as wrong and immature as they want to be. there is no other way to treat teenagers.

  • How would you like to be banned by many sites just because you're older? If you want to see dirty images, go look at p*rn . GaG is an advice site and any truly explicit comments get removed pretty quickly.
    I think you worded this wrong though. You want there to be an age range restriction that you choose on your own question? I think that's a fairly good idea because tbf you can't get much advice from a 13 year old on career/sex advice for example. If that's the case, I'm for it but you should take it up with the admins, they could implement it. However, most people may decide that 13 year olds shouldn't answer their question so what they do see are outdated questions or barely any fun questions!

    More than banning the minors, adults should just be more careful about what they talk about and how they talk about things IMHO. But some if not most people don't seem to be able to talk about anything else.

    • Exactly. We all need to discuss whatever we wish tactfully. There are limitless opportunities for open expression. Some of these topics are controversial if not outright ridiculous. We make a difference by confronting the outrageous statements and showing, in a benign way, how petty such topics are. Our fingertips allow us to respond in a mature way to the immature utterances made by a few.
      Keep it open to ALL, and let us all make meaningful responses.

  • Who cares? It's really not that serious.
