10 is too young now? So there is a limit? There are things kids shouldn't be allowed to do? That's not what you said. You never specified a cutoff age. And to specify a cutoff age proves the principle. Over the many years we've revised our standards on what is and isn't appropriate for what age, but the principle remains the same: Whatever a "kid" is, they should only do kid things. Whatever "kid things" are. There are certain things that can only be done when a certain age is reached. That's always been what we strive for. The fact that your chart didn't show that just shows the ignorance/bias of that chart.first of all, youre talking about 10 year olds not some 17 year old. second, i saw a graph on how laws restricting teen rights didn't exist until the 1800s look up case against adolescence by robert epstein in the book it shows that chart. the drinking age used to be extremely low in colonial times and the smoking age used to be 16 in the late 1800s. a 10 yr old russian kid would never get to reign today, so clearly even a 10 year old despite being super young was still allowed more responsibilities than even an 18 year old today.
also, murder is inherently wrong because most people want to stay alive and you're taking away their right to live which they all completely desire, and many people will mourn them because they established friendships with them. murder has always been seen as evil no matter what society. stealing isn't considered evil but is still considered wrong because the person likes their belongings and wants to keep them so you are taking away what they like and want. in every society, murder/stealing is bad. but not all societies viewed fondling as bad nor did they view teen marriage as bad. this just shows that in any society, murder will harm people because people inherently want to live and want to keep their belongings. people don't inherently feel damaged by fondling or teen marriage. if that was true, people in ancient greece would be traumatized by marrying a 30 year old man at 14 and the practice would've been instantly gone. trust me, if dahvie vanity and jessi slaughter's age difference was accepted, she wouldn't be traumatized. she wouldn't be depressed, traumatized, damaged, etc. at all. this isn't saying their age difference is ok but it isn't supposed to inherently traumatize you. and trust me, if i time traveled to ancient greece and was psychic i'd find NO trauma is teen brides. people here had grandparents with age differences and the grandma was maybe under 18 was never traumatized while nowadays she would be. i'm sure in the 50s, white foids who dated black guys would later claim to be "traumatized" by it
Also, I don't care what that chart says, we have science that shows young bodies physically cannot handle the toxins in alcohol like adults can. That's not "infantilizing." That's realizing that kids are small and their brains are still soft enough that alcohol/marijuana can ruin those brains.
And people do like their lives. And their property. But they also like their agency. Their right to have control of their bodies and what happens to it. That's why sex crimes are so heinous. They're a violation of agency. Sure, we could teach people not to value agency, just like we could teach people not to value their property, or their lives. But as long as we hold that agency is good and necessary, and as long as we hold that kids are too stupid to consent to giving their bodies up, we cannot let kids make adult decisions like that. It took us a while to get from Ancient Greece to today, but eventually we realized what kids were/weren't capable of.
Speaking of kids, didn't I tell you that Dahvie and Slaughter's age difference was accepted by her parents? She had all the freedom and normalization you're calling for. But it still didn't work. The trauma, the fucked-upness, was how she was emotionally dependent on him. Look, even if she was glad to be with him, the fact that she clings to him is the trauma. That's why kids can't have adult relationships. Because that clinginess. That emotional immaturity.
