I understand not all of the adults act like that, but the majority see anything under 18 and go "oh look, I can disrespect them and discredit them based on their age" and in some cases, they're only about 3-5 years older than the person they're talking to, so it's even more of "I have a few extra years, so I am so high and mighty, bow down to me, child. You don't know anything, and I must always be right."
Its pretty ironic really in many ways, but yeah I seen this everywhere. Its bad how these grown ass men and woman decide its okay to bully teenagers pretty much, cause yeah they are simply "young". Call them names for no good reason an so on. Age dosent define wisdom, I met many whos just 16yrs old but wiser than many 30yr olds.
Think all those adults have a pretty fragile ego anyway, bully metality. You have to put people down and urself above all others or easy targets like someone who is younger than you cause you are "older, bigger, better". Only way some can feel good about themselves, much like a bully. Its pretty pathetic really.
It's not that we or they think y'all are stupid it's just when it comes to some subjects like owning a house, bills, divorce or types of stress that people your age generally don't have to deal with yet etc. You guys don't have the experience to be giving advice relating to things you don't know anything or have experience in or about.
And I'll be the first to admit that some people around your age do give some remarkably good advice in some things but generally don't have the experience to be giving advice in some subjects.
Time equals experience and life, which equals to life experience which equals to wisdom and knowledge.
Because many of the users of this website sound uneducated and plain dumb. Today I some adult said that women are stupid for not voting for Trump, in fact he said that not voting for Trump proves that they are stupid. I had one guy tell me that physics proved that the soul existed because energy cannot be destroyed (implying he knows about conservation of energy). He then asserted that energy can be created (this goes against conservation of energy). I bet that GaG's average IQ / intelligence is pretty low.
Adults are very arrogant and have huge egos to fill. They'll make up excuses like saying that when they were your age they had issues and they feel like if they had issues at that age than you do to. Or blame it on one spicifc thing. But in actuality they're the immature ones.
No one is stupid or smart because of their age, it's fundamental mistake to think even a toddler is stupid.
What young people face is the problem of a lack of experience and the deeper problem of not even having enough experience to be able to perceive where they lack experience. As Donald Rumsfeld put it, it's a matter of "unknown unknowns". This can make their assurance on some topics seem comically presumptuous. Good-natured older people are patient with them because they can recall themselves at that age but not everyone is good-natured.
I really hate it when a 19-20 does dat... I'd be like OK if it was a person in his/her 40s... but 19-20? Shit... it's not been like a century since ya were in his/her age...
I've seen many so-called adults actin' immature as well by da way...
