The infantilization of young adults on this hellsite has gotta stop.
An 18-year-old could literally date a 98-year-old and it won’t be considered pedophilia because they are legally an adult who can leave home and never come back and their parents can do nothing to stop them.
Saying someone is a legal adult is not condoning” or “excusing” pedophilia because they “aren’t actually adults”.
Being an adult means you are legally responsible for yourself, decisions, and consequences of those decisions. It doesn’t matter how good your choices are, the choices and whatever the outcome is are your responsibility to deal with. There are 50-year-olds who still make piss poor decisions and guess what, they still gotta deal with the shit. Just like if an 18 year old makes a piss poor decsision they have to deal with it.
The fact that you dont know how to do taxes, buy a car, buy a house/apartment, cook, change a tire, etc. doesn’t mean that you aren’t an adult. It means that you’re an adult who doesn’t know how to do those things.
