    In typically called a kid

    because of my height. ( I'm 17 and 4 feet 8 inches) it annoys me so much that people think that just cause I'm short that means I'm a kid.

    Yeah I'm Young

    I was always the youngest, or one of the youngest, among my friends.  It annoyed me so much everytime one of my friends would call me "young buck"...a couple of them did this, and they'd do it when they wanted to be funny.  Thankfully no one does anymore.

    I'm Not A Kid

    I may be 13 years old, but isn't that considered at least a teenager? I may look even younger than I am, but I'm a very mature girl. I can have an intelligent conversation with much older people and understand what they're talking about. I'm not trying to be older, I just want to...

    It's Really Degrading...

    I am nineteen years old (almost twenty), and a lot of people that don't know me automatically assume I'm a kid. I'm not sure if it's the way I look or what. It seems like when people look at me, they think I'm sixteen or even younger. A lot of people would be happy with looking...

    Being called a kid is like having your freedom taken from you. I hate being called a ******* kid when I'm not even a kid anymore! I hated being a kid and they STILL call me kid? Hell no, I don't think so! I won't have this ****.   Kikyo♥

    If you're a senior then I don't mind.

    I find it disrespectful and condescending. Why do people need to feel the need to put people down by calling them a kid? Is it because they don't feel good enough about themselves that they have to use the 'age card'? I feel as if they think of themselves being more superior...

    I hate being a teenager.

    .. at 15 going on 16 i honestly dont feel like a child. I know i have alot to learn about life, but im willing to take on lifes responsibilities.. i cant even stand being in the category of a 'teenager' because i dont feel like my age at all.
