What part of having a penis makes you an adult again?
You're actions determine whether you're an adult or not, and you're actions indicate that you are a 12 year old sycophant.
Kids love to hear about sex anyway, you have no right to say "sorry this is for adults only because I'm a prude and so was my father AND SO SHALL YOU mwahahaha!".
If they're my kids, I have every right to say they can't. What you do with you're own kids is your own damn business, but don't be surprised when your neighbors or you're children's school teachers call Human Services and the Cops on you because little Pox was found circle jerking in study hall.
I'm not saying it's a bad system, but it still makes kids prisoners with no money and nothing.
It also prevents them from being taken advantage of. Child labor, the sex trade, child brides, and lack of a decent education to help them know any better or better themselves, anyone?
Adulthood is great. You live alone, you do whatever you want on weekends. You can travel, you can anything you can afford at the store. You can eat pizza for a month. It rules.
And that suits you as an adult, as you are done with schooling and now can work for a living.
See you always do this "prove a negative" line of thinking.
I'm not asking you to prove a negative, I'm asking you to defend the positives of your own argument. You think it would be a great thing for children to be exposed to porno and sex at an early age, I'm asking you to show me WHY you think that way. Don't try and pull this bait-and-switch appeal to ridicule on me for questioning your seemingly infallable logic.
How about I ask you: what legitimate reason is there for an 8 year old to NOT know what the purpose of sex is?
There is no legitimate reason for an 8 year to know what sex is as they are not physically capable of having it, and the changes of puberty that allow them to have sex do not occur for another few years, so they have no biological urge to do it.
Kids are curious, they want to know and you've no right to keep the information away from them especially if it clearly doesn't pose a danger.
So why stop with sex? Why not go into pregnancy, std's, abortion, miscarriage, birth control, bastard children, and child support payments while we're at it?
I'm sorry your parents had a victorian mindset.
That was not an invitation for a personal attack, it was to show that you are not a representative sample of the population at large and to show that different people will react to the same situation differently based on their surrounding environment. You're Canadian, I'm American, there's going to be cultural differences, SURPRISE!
Should I start taking bets on whether or not you attack my different culture next?
Instinct. We're animals, we're aggressive. Kids fight when they're angry.
How are you going to act on an instinct if you don't know what to do?
I think your perception of sex is skewed. Now try to prove it's not!
Tell me why, and we'll go from there.
As opposed to telling them they should strive to be well-groomed, athletic and hot so they can bang Pamela Anderson?
Everyone bang's Pamela Anderson sooner or later.
None of this "be content with what you have" shit, that's peasant-age mentality. That's how poor, shitty people think. People who aren't content are movers and shakers. They build the world while other people have a thumb up their ass.
This from the guy who was just lauding the virtues of living by himself and eating pizza all the time.
