no i think the age does not matter.if you want a true opinion about something, ask a little kid. they straight-foward and innocent and they they tell you what they think even if it hurt you (but it's not fair when they get away with it). sometimes their poin of view is 180 degree different from us..

In terms of that issue, i think freedom of speech is given to evrybody
and it has no age limit...
everyone of us has its own feelings, opinions and decisions in life
and nobody can change it...
freedom of speech makes us all more mature
in life wherein we can easily express ourselves...

As long as the person, no matter what age, is not posing a danger to society, you have freedom of speech. Now this doesn't go over environments such as school and the workplace as there are guidelines and rules and such. I'm sure your teacher wouldn't be too pleased if you mouthed off and said that you were exercising the first amendment.

and its a thing called ageism or however its spelled you know ..this has not much about what were talking about but its usulally older people who do bad choices like smoking or drinking or being "bad" im not saying older people are dumb because younger people will so become older soon but i just think its not as fair though

I think everyone should have a voice, and that your age should not matter at all; you should still have a say in some things.

I think that adults tend to forget to teach children at an early age the difference between free speech and rudeness, where free speech is speaking one's mind, and rudeness is being careless with speech. Amendment 1 in America: RIGHT FOR FREE SPEECH

Freedom of speech is a very important civil liberty. The very first section of the Bill of Rights, the 1st Amendment, guarantees this freedom. Speech can mean writing, performing, or other ways of expressing yourself. Americans have the basic right to express their views on any subject. This is true even if the government disagrees with these views. However, in certain very specific situations, freedom of expression is limited. For example, no one can shout a false "fire!" in a theater and cause panic.

Depending on your country though.. the freedom of speech is everyone rights, its included at the Human Rights Bill of the UN..

but if you are from a communist country or any authoritarian state, the freedom of speech is very limited.. you can't rally in Burma, that's for sure or you'll get to be fired my the military..

im from the philippines, and freedom of speech is practically practice by everyone but that's because we are a very democratic country..
