It's crazy how discriminated against the 18-20 year old population is. They're full legal adults with all the responsibilities and consequences of being adults yet people think it's just fine to shit on them. Either raise the age of adulthood (and voting) to 21 (and stop prosecuting <21 as adults) or lower the drinking age to 18 again, prosecute car rental places, gun shops, and states in general that try to violate their rights.

With todays children, adulthood begins upon death.

Planned Parenthood is helping us mature then?

Raising the voting age to 21 would disenfranchise a large part of Gen Z who tend to skew conservative. Not a good idea, IMO.

Jesus people, Gen-Z doesn’t skew conservative, Gen-Z whites skew conservative, but they’re almost a minority. You make this mistake because you still think America is a white country. It’s not, and you’d better get ready for the consequences of that.

Yeah, I don't think it's a good idea either. I just strongly think the system has to be made consistent. It would be best if 18-20 years simply weren't discriminated against illegally and the laws of the land were enforced to protect them as any citizen should be.

No, it's an excellent idea. If they want to repeal their own rights, let's tie it all together. They don't understand what they're giving up because by and large, they don't own guns, don't go shoot, aren't drinking, etc. Once they realize that giving up a right is a serious thing, they'll change their minds.

Teenagers are immature and do a lot of stupid shit.

So we can do away with licenses, and determine merit simply by a person's age?

Statistically, yeah. But they pay the price in responsibility and consequences just like the rest of us. That means they have the same rights. You can argue for raising the age of legal adulthood but being a legal adult and having your rights violated is wrong.

People who have nothing to lose are always viewed as dangerous.
