    I disagree. I think there are a lot of discussion here that would interest someone who is 13. Many subjects are relative to school work and stuff you read in newspapers and hear on TV.

    I understand that. I would have enjoyed this when I was 13 I think. I was political well active in political things at that time. That was in 1965.

    The sex and sexuality forum would be a good place.

    I agree that there are many places for a yournger person to post.

    Which is why I said "maybe" to reading the place... although there are some pretty sick stuff in the Sexuality forum and the Basement. What I said though is that I wouldn't want them posting here because however interesting this place is to them, they're too young to apply that interest into the discussion.

    I guess you could say I was "political" too, in that I was interested in politics, but most of my opinions were ill-informed and just mimicked the opinions of my parents.

    I agree with the Basement and the sex and sexuality forum.

    Kind of a boring antichrist, don't you think?

    After reading all the postings in that "Are Women Property" thread, I'm starting to have second thoughts as to whether this place is suitable for my 27 year old.

    My youngest is 13, but she has almost no interest in politics right now. If she showed interest, I'd let her read some parts of the forum, but would definitely keep her out of others, especially the basement. She could post with my supervision as well if she wanted to.

    The idea that this is anywhere near the worst site that a 13 year-old looks at is hilarious.

    News for those of you with 13 year olds and computers: Your children are going behind your back and looking at crazy porn all the goddamn time.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
