Youth can speak without the prejudices of age.


so many times i have spoken around older people and been told that my point of view is invaluble becasue i am a child.

Your opinion will have 100000000 times more value (to me) if you turned on your BBCode Laughing
So THAT'S what BBCode does.

I've had the good fortune to be able to shut up any adults that try and pull that one. Either that or they pull it and walk off to earn a paycheck.


sorry to be really dumb but whats a BBcode?

To Sam: Shut up, I'll set you on fire!!!!! Razz

some people get really offended at 'ageist' ( I love that word) remarks but I don't take it as muchof an insult because the majority of adults accept people's ages and it's more of a personal thing if someone insults you because of their age.

Yeah but I knew what you meant anyway.

I still think we should respect old people, even if they wern't involed in the war.

i think we should show respect for the elderly, as when we are all older would we not like to be respected?

i think ageism is one of those things people believe only goes one way, like sexism. but it can go both ways.

i certainly think that older people should be treated with respect, but should children and teenagers not be treated with respect also? i think it is unfair that an adult can class what you have to say irelivant or your oppinion inferior just because your younger. and ok i do apreciate the fact that we are bound to have less experience and there for less wisdom but that does not mean, by any stretch of the imagination that our oppinions are inferior.

I have the perfect answer...Lets all respect eachother. Regardless of race, sex, age, religion, colour. If we all did, there would be no need for this ever growing list of 'Isms'.

Yes, I will get back off my Idealist soapbox, now.

Unfortunately, we all know it's never going to happen. Cruel world...
