    I agree but adulthood is different for everyone. The brain is still forming well in the 20s. 18 you go universiy or college and you get a job learning the ropes. I dont think you are adult until you realize the responsibilities that comes with it. Our education is paid through taxes I assume and when we work we pay it off... yes? I dunno. I base this on the latest neurological findings that the brain doesnt fully mature until the Mid 20s or early 30s.

    youmotherfixers saidthat's society's fault though. it has allowed 20 something year olds to still think they're kids and shit, not being held accountable for their actions. you got college students that are 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and etc thinking that they're still kids when they're adults. folks are ready to call 25 young when it's not.


    You are officially a gay man.

    This is nothing new.
    It has been well established the preferential cortex doesn't completely form till 25; the reason emotional gives way to critical thinking.
    Using it as an excuse to live with your parents till your thirty is new--yay science.

    I agree. It's cultural. In some countries and cultures, kids move out and join the local militia by the age of 10.


    Just kidding.


    Kinda.

    When life expectancy was 50 or 55 and folks married at 18 or 19 and had kids already by 20, did conditions force the 'growing up' process to happen sooner?

    I do think people should learn responsibilities sooner I agree but 25 is not close to old. You should not be acting like a teenager obviously but you are still changing as a person.
