@Charlie TaylorI understand what you're saying, however, it was completely unnecessary to add age in there to make his point, as I said, wouldn't his point still be just as valid without it? All the age discrimination adds is frustration and annoyance to that certain group of people who know what it's like to be discriminated upon. @theRAPTORAnd you're assuming that I'm around the age of 12? Does looking down on someone and saying one of those cliche "you'll understand when your older" comments make you feel more mature?I'd like to see what a mature 12 year olds opinion is on this, or maybe even a parent of a mature child, I'm sure their thoughts would be similar to mine. Just like with race or sexuality, even the smallest bit of unnecessary discrimination can sting. It's one of those things where most people just have to experience it to understand, but if it could offend some people, why not leave it out if your argument is just as valid?

I have to admit when i read that one line it stuck out as an unnecessary generalisation. To be honest it undermined any legitimacy the rest of the artical had, thats why most people tend to avoid sectioning off parts of their audience. Sorry, it smacks of a 'making myself feel better' kind of throw away lineJo (Aged 30 and 11/12ths)
