yeah, but I remember about 19 years ago I was sitting in a hospital room watching the only thing on TV, daytime talk shows, and these were really something -
1 was a roomful of adults talking shit to teenagers for liking some gothy type of guy and dressing freaky, shouting at teenagers threatening them, telling them what shit they were.
- was a roomful of adults giving some people shit for what they had done as teenagers that hurt other people’s feelings but never apologized for (like I don’t think I’ve ever gotten contacted by anyone who said oh I hurt your feelings 20 years ago and was insensitive sorry, it might be nice if people did this but they don’t so why the judgemental attitude)
3 was some sort of show telling kids they were messed up for being gay or trans or whatever.
I mean maybe these audiences full of adults emotionally beating these kids are too numerous to discount them as immature larva.
but on the other hand I am in the misanthropic camp.
