A legal and cultural age set in modern America defined to infantilize, pamper, stifle, and enculturate young adults. Historically a development of the clan-phobic American attempt to shunt social constraint of young adults from the family to the educracy. This phenomenon is supported by widely held myths of "adolescent rebellion", which is often paradoxically feared and stimulated by zealous custom. see teenteen

Something im not proud to be, because a lot of teenagers are quite simply put; idiots.
Im 17, and I look around and see all of these people (teenagers) moping around, I tell them that we live like kings and they shrug me off and tell me about how bad their life is because, for example, they got dumped.

Teenagers aren't mentally ready, or responsible for relationships. Love at first sight? No, lust at first sight my good gentlemen, there is a difference.

Not all teenagers are bad, disrespectful, know-it-all, idiots. It's just a pathetic sterotype.

people who suffer the most ageisum. most people dislike them. others dont understand them being a teenager is the hardest part of your when confused of who you are and what you wanna do with your life. which is made worse by ageist older people who think all of them are sex obssesd, drug dealing pot heads. Which i find very harsh
