pol adj frustration 

honestly fucking frustrating how often "save the children" is used as the ultimate excuse to do literally anything because "think of the children" is basically this loophole that justifies any action because children are small and won't disagree with you, while at the same time reducing everyone from pre-birth age to 18 and sometimes to even 25 to take away their autonomy by equating the physical and social development level of a fetus to that of a 7 year old to that of a pre-teen to that of a literal adult, because, of course, a 19 year old is exactly the same as a 5 year old and both are "children"

re: pol adj frustration 

it's basically a way to use toddlers and middle schoolers as your personal shield against criticism because children are small and can't do anything about it while at the same time reducing young adults to "children" to deny their autonomy

im so tired of how people still use the "think of the children" argument its so frustrating

@AgathaSorceress come to think of it, they are the ones who (argumentatively) abuse the children for their own goals
