It’s really irritating when adults say “you don’t understand, you’re still a kid” or “you have no say so because I have more life experience than you”. I don’t deny the wisdom and extra knowledge of adults. I know I’m still a child and don’t understand certain things. I know I’m not in a power position. But I also know that when you tell someone immature something they don’t agree with, they will deflect. They don’t want to hear what you have to say because in their uppity heads everything they say to you is always gonna be right. I don’t know if it’s just my observation but the most mature adults usually like to hear what you have to say without letting something as simple as age be a deciding factor. I can’t stand adults who use that argument against me because it diminishes me to ‘a kid who doesn’t know better’ in their eyes. If you are one of these people, I encourage you to start listening to the person you disagree with. Only assholes minimize other perspectives based on quizzical prejudices.
