Experts Declare That Adulthood Now Begins at Age 24

A prominent effect of moonbattery is infantilization. This retards development to such an extreme that according to authorities adolescence now extends to age 24:

The traditional definition for adolescence is currently between and the ages of 10 and 19, which marked the beginnings of puberty and the perceived end of biological growth.

But, writing in the Lancet Child & Adolescent Health, scientists from the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne argue the timings needs to be changed.

One reason it takes so long to grow up is that people have been starting families later (if at all),

with the average man entering their first marriage aged 32.5 and women 30.6, an increase of eight years since the 1970s.

Among the pernicious consequences are that people have fewer economically productive years, they produce fewer children, and due to extreme immaturity, they continue to vote for Democrats long after they should have outgrown such childishness.

Speaking of voting, if adulthood doesn’t begin until age 24 now, shouldn’t we change the voting age to reflect that?

    Then NO DRINKING, NO VOTING, NO JOINING the military until 24. NO driver’s license either. That’ll wake up the children.

  2. Jester says:

    24 years old, except for drinking, doing drugs, and of course, voting Democrat. All that will be legalized starting at the age of 13.

  3. CSW says:

    I would say raise the voting age — UNLESS one is serving in the armed forces. Fair enough?

  4. Otis Donkey says:

    Alot if these kids wont see a bad side to that. Freedim ti play video games 24/7 in the basement. More delay of ‘adulting’.

  5. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Maybe we should raise the age that one can join the armed services, too. And clearly no need for registration for Selective Service until 23-24….

  6. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Video games rated “M” won’t be allowed for the “youth” either.

    Come to think of it…no “R” rated movies until the mid-twenties, either.

  7. MAS says:

    And if you let your sprout stay on tick in your basement that long, you deserve what you get and more…

    Don’t forget sex-changes… Leftists want kids able to get ’em from the school nurse without parental permission by 4th Grade.

  9. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    If “adult” means competent to make your own life choices and take responsibility for the results, leftists don’t seem to feel that we the little people are ever full adults.

    Not only the voting age, but also the drinking age, the smoking age, the driving licence age. 😉

    I had a hip replacement about 10 years ago, and shared a hospital room with an 82 year old WWII vet. He told me he enlisted in the Navy with a few of his pals when they were 16. By the time they were 17, they were firing guns on a destroyer in Pacific.

    Guess we’ll not see that again, but I’m forever grateful there were real men in 1941.

  15. That Rapscallion...EtoculusDei says:

    Ditto on that.
