    I've noticed a trend on EP (and hopefully you

    don't all get bent out of shape). I think there's a large percentage of adults on here who just assume that all teenagers are stupid and have nothing of merit to say. That's fine, who am I to dictate what you should think? What really interests me is when an adult (who you would...

    Why?

    Why do people judge you and make assumptions before they even talk to you? If you are thinking I'm something at least give me the courtesy to explain to me why you think that.

    I'm a nice girl who wants to have happy people

    talk to her. I don't understand why people just can't be nice to anymore as when I try to talk to people at school, they move away from me throwing abusive words about my hair as I'm a redhead. Maybe I should dye it. I just like the way it looks right now.

    Ya know maybe if some the younger generation

    (key word is SOME which means not all so don't whine and say I dislike all of you) weren't so self absorbed and didn't act like freaking elementary schoolers, then there'd be less truth to the older generations criticisms.
