Why Children Always Know Best

As we continue to progress as a society, and extend rights victim group after victim group, we appear to have missed the most important group of all: children. As Hollywood movies and TV shows constantly indicate, children are increasingly more informed, more mature and wiser than adults. We also see that adults, especially white men, are increasingly clumsy, naive and pathetic, and their kids are constantly rolling their eyes at them and educating them about simple concepts. Yet, in our backward society, children are completely stripped of their rights to vote, have consensual romantic relationships, drive and consume alcohol.

Young people are far more progressive than adults, and are far more open to forward thinking revolutionary ideas like socialism and communism. You rarely see 40 year olds with a families wearing Che Guevara t-shirts, but you regularly see young people doing so. Young people are also more tech-savvy than adults. Sure, most of them can’t change a tire or fix a light bulb – but they know how to use a smart phone and operate a tablet; something most adults just cannot figure out. This is why we desperately need to eliminate the voting age restriction, along with all other age restrictions. If you’ve been born, and the mother has determined that you are no longer abortable, you should be able to vote. It’s as simple as that.

Extremists will argue that the older you are, the wiser you become, and the more you care about greater societal issues rather than your immediate self interest, but if this is true then why did old people vote for Trump and Brexit? The fact is, young people are smarter than ever, and don’t need guidance from parents. They are perfectly capable of making informed decisions using the abundant information available to them through government schools, the media and popular culture. In Mexico, the age of sexual consent is 12! Are we really less progressive than Mexico? Come on America, we can do better than this! It’s time to extend all human rights children, for if we fail to do so, history will judge us harshly and future generations may never forgive us for the damage we have done to society and our political system. This is the Current Year!

I would also suggest that pregnant persons get 2 votes. This would put an end to white male dominance rather quickly.

Since a fetus is simply a parasite growing inside you. I can’t see why the additional vote is applicable.
Should someone with tape worm get an additional vote? Or head lice many votes?

I apologize for my strong rebuttal to your post but I was triggered.
We as progressives must suppress dissent. If we allowed that fetus to have a vote the radical far right nuts would than attempt to argue that that fetus would perhaps vote against a women’s right to chose. A lot of Pregnant women actually incorrectly think that fetus is a life and could vote against it as well.
We can’t allow that slippery slope to happen.

Anything that destroys white male dominance is progressive and RIGHT.

We had a great protest on our campus under our safe place safe space continuing education which was offered as extra credit toward accreditation entitled “Progress for Micro-aggression Affirmative Action 411”, almost a graduate level informational wonder of a program, I am proud to say, we all received a commemorative plaque to be added to our trophy rooms after the free pizza and hotdogs. I have taken over dads office space for my trophy collection since he is a privileged dropout from the workforce and usually found just staring out the window shaking his head for some reason. He is scheduled to see a Obama Care Certified Clinical Specialist for free medical treatment, counseling, and a full regimen of as seen on TV happy medicine, thank goodness. Where would we be without these visionary efforts of hope and change? We even made the lead story on the News! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-B4Gy8nQiDY

Won’t TRUMP and CRUZ hand out lollipops to secure the good votes?

Absolutely true, the east German Stasi educated women and children about patriotism, and used them to monitor the men for non-compliance or rebellious behavior. Children were good at snitching on their parents.

Shouldn’t the government decide the maximum age when it is legal to abort a child? At the moment, post birth abortion is generally frowned upon but I think this is plain wrong given that the child is always and everywhere a part of the womyn’s body. Perhaps the legal age of abortion for the child should be raised until the age when the womyn giving birth to her own body ceases to be lifeforce active?

French are known for their “perfumes”. They bathe once in 15 years, Indians at least once a day.
