Alright. I may sound like a whiny brat, but why is the media (and people in real life) convinced that anyone under the age of eighteen is stupid? I’ve just reached my teens, and trust me when I say I have much better spelling and grammar than half the adults I’ve seen. Also, I’m fairly sure I have more common sense than a large amount of adults, too.
I’m not trying to make a rant, because I honestly want your opinions on why you think kids are stupid. However, in order to see where I stand in this, I’ll have to give a highly biased explanation. So…let’s just see how that goes, shall we?
First off, the media. If aliens were to come here and see a ‘pre-teen’ TV show, they would scream and run away, vowing to take over an intelligent planet. Now, for detail. As an example, I’ll be using Disney, one of the major offenders (and oddly enough, a giant source for innuendo). And before you say anything, yes, some of these shows are meant for early teenagers.
Despite what they seem to think, we don’t need morals shoved down out throat. Can someone explain to me why you adults see the need to teach kids that doing drugs is wrong when they already know?
Also, the amount of sheer stupidity is appalling. For instance, I once saw a TV show that just…insulted every kid in the world’s intelligence. I mean, the shows have merits, but they teach you the most obvious things. If an adult wants their child to learn, just shove them into skull, or better yet, teach them these things!
I’m not going any further, because I know this is, by all definitions, a rant. Oh, and…please don’t report me. Please? I want some honest opinions and answers, and I want to know how kids look in an adult’s eyes. Do you think we’re stupid? Ignorant? Naive? Oh, and please none of that ‘kids are young, therefore they’re stupid’ stuff. I don’t care for those answers, and you won’t get any credit for them.
Thank you, if you reply!
You guys are like sharks! I just posted this thing!
Now that that’s out of the way, I respect you guys’ opinions and all…but would it kill you to explain? Anyway, thank you for the input, and Full Intention [Halcyon], you actually made me chuckle a little. Congrats; that’s not an easy feat.
Again, thank you for the input, even if I’m a little disappointed in the whole ‘real-world experience’ answer…
ColdHard…, I’m not saying I’m all-knowing. In fact, I know I’ve got a lot to learn. I’m terribly ignorant, and I am, in a way, an ‘idiot’. But a lot of things, not what you’re talking about, are unjust. Sorry for arguing, and I appreciate the input.
Also…old cartoons vs. today’s cartoons. All I’m saying.
