Teenagers not all rebels?!

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 15 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 15 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and write about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 15 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

An amazing revelation from today’s Independent:

They enjoy quiet nights at home and view their parents as friends. Welcome to the world of today’s “mild child” teenagers.

It turns out that not all teenagers are binge-drinking antisocial idiots, but that the vast majority are normal, reasonable human beings.

Perhaps someone should tell the Daily Mail (current top story on their website: Posh and Becks fail to smile whilst strolling through St Mark’s Sqaure surrounded by paparazzi), who prefer quotes like “Teenagers [posess] pea-sized brains”, “Teenagers are mentally challenged” and “Oral sex drive for teenagers”. That’s when they’re not talking about teenage pregnancy, and simultaneously criticising those who have abortions and those who don’t, and thus become teenage parents. And they say Labour has no coherent policies on anything.
