Kids can act "smart" and "mature" but they're still just kids, ultimately naive and inexperienced. The higher quality ones may behave well and yet 10 years later be embarrassed about it, not having fully understandood the concept of trolling or why would someone pretend to be someone he's not. This is a two-way situation that protects kids from adults as much as adults from kids.Quote fromBut, of course, you're not discriminating against all thirteen-year-olds because we all know that universal statements are mostly incorrect. I've met thirteen-year-olds (or something close to it) who are far more mature and intelligent than adults, and I've met PLENTY of adults who are complete assholes. (I have to deal with a ton of people who claim to be adults on this forum every day but completely neglect acting their age.)
You just keep repeating the same crap over and over again, and quite frankly, I much rather interact with the asshole adult than a "smart kid". Adults and kids don't have anything in common, they don't share the same cultural references, they're in different places with their lives, and it's friggin' annoying being around people who have no realistic grasp on anything in life. They haven't been yet tainted and corrupted by the overall crappiness of the world.
For some reason it feels like you're just objecting this for the fuck of it, or possibly due to being butt-hurt for no apparent reason. There's absolutely no point whatsoever in adults and kids socializing together.
