It only disturbs me when 14-16 year olds post "sexy" pics of themselves and ask to be rated which are mostly girls. It disturbs me that their parents haven't warned them about pedos on the internet. It disturbs me that there are probably old men doing creepy shit with their pics. It disturbs me that there are probably adults chatting them up with bad intentions. I just wish there was a way I could keep them safe.
It's just straight up disturbing to all my senses.
I'm almost 25. I do not mind having teenagers on this site. The only thing that bothers me when it comes to age is when those under 18 post photos of themselves in revealing clothing. That's unnecessary, and they should not be exposing that much of themselves online.
A little, but I know that there's really no way of keeping them out. Most of them are just curious and understandably so. It does raise an eye when they ask unusually explicit questions or give detailed answers.
I am 16 and I don't really care. They have a right to be here just like anyone else. I remember when I was younger and I was curious about sex and stuff, and I joined when I was 15 years old. It doesn't matter. Rather them know what goes down than shelter them.
It doesn't disturb me, mostly because at least from the questions i have read, it's usually questions about does this person like me, how to ask her/him out... things that i think as a teen i would have benefited from hearing someone's advice or ideas. It's also kind of good that they can hear lots of different advice and view comments on comments, it makes you aware that there are lots of differing opinions and you need to judge them and not just accept things right off... I kind of hope the teens on here are smart enough to not take this all too seriously and develop their analytical skills. The rate me pics are admittedly a little weird, but i remember when i was younger, the insecurity can be pretty hard to deal with. So i don't want to judge them too harshly. Also i'm pretty sure that if any pictures were posted that were inappropriate shall we say, Gag would have to flag and get rid of them cause i think it may be illegal to publish pics of minors.
I think GAG is kind of in that weird spot where really it's for 16-21 where you're clueless and innocent and in need of advice, but still caters to people older and younger than that age group. I don't really see the problem as the under 18s who might have questions about adult content, but rather the creeps who are double their age and asking/saying really creepy dirty things... *shudders*
I hate kids that try to be adults, especially young girls trying to act like "loose" women, I don't want to see your ass, go play with a barbie doll and watch Disney channel!
Perhaps you should grow up a bit. Kids talk about sex. They talk about drugs. Dating. All other kinds of shit. Sticking your head in the sand and pretending they don't or shouldn't seems foolish to me.
Rather than making these subjects taboo, we should treat them openly. Maybe then the kids would actually start making better decisions, with such topics taken out of the shadow-land and dragged into the light.
