So it's obvious a lot of people have mixed reactions about GAGers under the age of eighteen. On the one hand some over eighteen GAGers are okay with it and very accepting. While on the other hand many disapprove the thought of GAG being open to anyone under eighteen. Well being an under eighteen GAGer myself I can see where this mixed reaction came from. So I decided to make a myTake on the subject. Here's A Day In The Life Of An Under 18 GAGer.
If you're an under eighteen GAGer like me there may be times when you feel like you don't belong in GAG, or that people don't take your opinions seriously because of your age. It's obvious that GAG was more targeted towards adults, and therefore we sometimes feel left out just because we're younger than eighteen.
There are honestly some under eighteen GAGers who aren't responsible enough for GAG, which is probably where most of the discussion started about the GAG age limit.
Many think that the GAG age limit should be raised to sixteen or even eighteen. As of right now the minimum age limit is at thirteen. So is that an acceptable age for someone to start GAG?
I like to think maybe? For example- there are a lot of questions I had when I first started this site about things sex ed class didn't exactly cover, and this site did a good job at explaining things like that to me. And it kind of filled the curiosity I had. Not to mention there are plenty of other things I needed insight to about my personal life that GAG really helped me with. I have really gained a lot of knowledge from this site.
But what do we bring to GAG? Possibly a lot!
Many people older than us might be interested in knowing things about what this generation is like in contrast to what it was like when they were growing up. Those questions are basically built for someone under eighteen.
We bring advice too, of course. Sometimes kids can be just as helpful as adults can be. It's just that at times people don't take us as seriously. But if we were to simply find a way to be born earlier in time they might give us a bigger chance.
As an under eighteen GAGer I'd much rather be judged by the content and advice I bring to this site rather than how old I am.
I know that this isn't for everyone over eighteen, but there are quite a few who aren't fond of the idea of an under eighteen GAGer. And if you're unsupportive of under eighteen GAGers I understand, but I ask you to just give us a chance to show you what we can bring to this site.
