Oaky, would you be defending him if he weren't INTJ?
Are you just being sympathetic to INTJ weaknesses?
I don't think he's defending him as a person, tbh. He's just pointing out that we're a mob of people in our mid-to-late 20's ganging up and verbally assaulting a young teenager.
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
Isn't much use now is it? It's been going on for quite the while with not much avail.
then it's obviously time to restrict him or something if other means are ineffective... I could have claimed that MY age was 15... would that mean that I could be given more leeway?
in other words, if I have to behave no matter what, he should have to as well... this is an internet forum, people here are expected to act like grown ups (even though they frequently do not!) if they're going to participate- otherwise it feels like there's a double standard
Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom? -Terry Pratchett
15 years old is old enough to face the consequences of the words you choose to use to express your opinions.
Sometimes the consequence is getting you teeth verbally kicked in by a mob. You either learn to not sound like such an asshole or you just keep doing it and get your teeth kicked in some more. Life's kinda like that.
A 15 year old is not a child. Treating a 15 year old like they have no accountability or ignoring their behavior because they are young is not going to do them much of a service when a few years pass and people are suddenly expecting them to act like an adult.
Never wrestle with a pig. You will get dirty and the pig will enjoy it.
hmmm when I was 15 i wouldn't be caught dead with someone who liked reality tv, now I have friends who watch jersey shore and even though I think it's garbage I realize they're smart and we don't talk about jersey shore. Your view of people changes as you get older, you begin to realize you're not always right and infact 80% of the time you're wrong. But you keep on going and one day you may reach the top or not Rosa Parks is probably smarter than me. Hell most people probably are, but it's not that huge of a deal to me I'll die alone but I'll die happy.
