COMMENT AWAY!
P.S. Sorry for ranting...


Funny thing about life, when your younger you want to grow up faster and when your older you wish you could be younger again. Well at least for some people.

It really doesn't seem much different from when I was 14... Although now days it seems like kids are less inhibited about giving people shit about stupid things... I also noticed that older people have that same problem too, now days....

I guess I'm really wondering what ever the f#ck happened to manners, compassion and a little empathy....

P.S. feel free to rant...

Sex is overrated. Though you're a tweenager. Of course they want to grow up, because even the smartest tweenagers are idiots. No offense, but I was raised around academics, and they were still as immature/grown up as one could imagine. Puberty does that. It's around your age when people begin experimenting. With themselves. Or others.


Forget your reasons and listen to Penpal's Superpowerless. It's like if The Replacements had a kid through a bad threesome and nobody wanted to talk about paternity. So the kid listened to as much music from the late 80's and early 90's as it could, trying to figure out which two were exactly its parent. Replacements for sure. It's insane how much better Penpal is than Motley Crue or The Cure, but they are clearly the younger cousins of Treepeople.

Nonsense is definitely my original influence. I wonder if you and I are cousins or brothers.

Sex is overrated, sure, but it's underrated as well. It's about knowing how it affects you in a relationship, what you want and what you can share, which make more sense later, but the general advice is don't go in unprepared for the consequences, and you can't be prepared for every consequence because they are too hard to explain.

Now raise the youth, generation X!

But as far as sex being the barometer, even if you don't get somebody pregnant, if it doesn't work out for other reasons you might feel as bad as if somebody stole something important from you, and you have to be ready to spend months or years getting over it. It's easier to speak to people you know, so I blame the parents, even if it wasn't possible for them to behave otherwise.

If you grow up too fast you missed out on a good and akward part of your life when you're grown and just think back with regret.

If you're talking about sex ingeneral well it's because your 14.

Read the title of this thread. And though, "Oh gosh, this is going to mention people of young age having sex already."

You should at least finish it up with them getting pregnant before 18. Sarcasm

I still remember telling my grandma that I never wanted to grow up (I was about 6 or 7 years old back then). She just laughed.

All the other kids wanted to be policemen and astronauts and firefighters. I just wanted to stay a kid.

Nearly two decades later, I feel like I was justified in wanting to stay a kid.

Its not a matter of kids trying to grow up too fast. They've been led to believe that this stuff makes them an adult without even considering the consequences of their actions. Its just trading one form of immaturity for another.

Just enjoy your youth while it lasts cuz that sh*t only happens once. That is, provided your parents aren't psychopathic hypocrites who try to lock you up your entire teenaged years because they think you're dangerous.

I know way too many people who have already had sex and I'm the oldest in my year (16). Everyone else is roughly 14-15 and it's just weird. Of course if I was given the opportunity I would probably take it (given that it's safe), however I'm not one to seek it. From my point of view, it just seems to create drama and problems.

I would say not to bother until 20 or so
