- You know, it's not so long ago that it was completely normal for 13 year olds to get married. It still happens today, too, though maybe not so often in our society.
And like the above comments said, some people just have to grow up fast, and sometimes they're thrown into the adult world against their own will. When I was thirteen, hells yeah I would've loved to play with my Bratz dolls and be an innocent little joy to the world but not everybody gets to stay that innocent.
But you do make a good point about how the society is basically sexualizing kids. Media. Blargh.
(#) BeccaIsNotOnFire 2013-07-17I don't understand how watching TOWIE makes you a grown up since they have the people in those shows have the iqs of newborn babies. Also I agree with Claire that a lot of people go through these things not by a choice of their own. Someone extremely close to me had to have an abortion at 16 and it was the hardest thing she has ever had to do and still hates herself for it. Sometimes you don't know the full story.
(#) BeccaIsNotOnFire 2013-07-17Poppana TOWIE is a reality/ drama show where people from Essex basically live their lives with cameras on it. It's basically a more realistic soap show except "is definitely not scripted in anyway, their lives are really this dramatic, no lies, can you sense the sarcasm in my voice?" TOWIE is an abreviation of The Only Way Is Essex
I wrote a discursive essay on how awful TOWIE is for English and got top marks in my class for it
