    There are a lot of ignorant children in this

    world, and a lot of ignorant adults. Age doesn't matter at all to me, it's what a person has experienced and how they decide to live their lives that determines maturity and wisdom. There are adults on here that will try to shame me because of my age, they will assume that I am...
