All daughters,

All daughters, actually.

Nope, my 14 year old adopted daughter cannot provide for herself. Neither can a HUGE number of "adults. I'm not saying that she is superior to other teens. I'm saying that you give TOO MUCH CREDIT TO THE AVERAGE ADULT.

If we justify oppressing our teens with "they aren't mature enough", then the same argument can and will be used to oppress "adults" who also "aren't mature enough".

Yes, teens make stupid decisions all the time. No, teens are NOT inferior to the "average" adult in this regard.

...And what about the teenage prostitute? Cuz, without me adopting the 14 year old, there was a very real possibility of her choosing that life.
