adulthood is just a social point of view of optimal bahavior.
But besides,there is man,and I belong much more to that category than to the adult one.
I donīt want to be an adult,I want to be mature,which means that I smoke because I want to,and I assume the consequences.
If I can andle the idea of becoming ill because of it,thaīs fine.
And if I ever have childre,which is not a problable thing,I would teach them to choose.
And I think I should be enough mature to handle their chooice too.
Adult hood has provocked all the problems we have now.
discrimination is one of its consequences,besides violence.
Making or not violent films,or porno films wonīt solve the psicological problems we have.
They exist because there is a high demand for them.
And if there is such a high demand it is because most of adults do not have a life meaning this something to spend their day beisde work.
Might be simplistic,but it is reflected in our world.
My point was not to make things available for all.
But to be able to choose what information I want to have.
I do not agree with the idea of making this world just suitable for children either for adults.
I thinks that information if better than lies,then if I am not enough mature for it,at least I am enough human to be told the truth.
Where does it says children should be aware of sex at 8 or 7 or whatever?
Then why is sex hidden to them,to the point it becomes a tabu,and then,where they are told,they are too misinformed,and they start developing some problemss about it that they wonīt resolve at who knows wehat age.
And then again,if violence exist in the world,then children should see it too,and not make them believe the world is such a nice a pinky place,full of fairy tales and things like that.
It is too late at 15 or 16 to become aware of the world.
We should know it before,and be able or learn how to handle it.
Violence would be much more accapted then fought if all of us could start planning strategies from the start,and not keep on reading childrenīs part of the newspapers,plenty of games and noncenses.
Again,this is not a claim for free porno on the streets,in fact porno would not be needed if sex and all the tabus were learnt from the start,as a natural thing,and we could all handle life as it comes if we were not told lies from the start,it is a logical thing,how can you expect someone to react if he has been told a lie from the very early age,and then that thing that was his truth because an adult told him so,becomes just a fantasy,and he has to replace the whole thing with a new one ,that probably will be again replaced by a more accurate version when he graduates and then agains when he stars working and again when he retires,or have children,who will be told the same les,that not only him but also his parents will have to process again and unmaks them again only to realize there is an updated version etc etc....
Too many steps to get to the same point.
