    @Bebealways:  The mod from the other post said that the spinoffs from that one would be closed as well.

     

     But I want to point out that ageism isn’t always discriminatory, sometimes it is just prejudice. Discrimination is people acting on that prejudice.

     

    I can be quietly racist. I might not be a part of the KKK or try to take away rights from African-Americans, I probably treat them as equals.

     

    I might meet someone new that is African American and be completely pleasant towards that person. But in my mind I might have thoughts like, “Ugh they’re all so loud and they’re all always rude. This new person is just like this because they’re ALL THE SAME.”

     

    Those thoughts are prejudice, because I’m judging the entire group before I even get to know this person. 

     

    *NOTE: I’m not racist.. just an example I promise 🙂

    I think this is going to get closed.

    But, I don’t think anyone thought kids should have the same rights as adults.

    I just don’t understand why people would hate them. Not like them, not want any, fine, but hate is a bit extreme.
