I don't think children are more important than adults

I think vulnerable adults such as autistic women deserve as much protection as children, if not more depending on the severity of their vulnerability. I don't think age matters so much as how actually vulnerable the individual person is. People act like children feel more pain than adults but that's not true, adults are more often in pain than kids are.

Is It Normal?

  • Children need more protection because their brain is still developing and any form of abuse / neglect will alter what type of adult they become.

    • any form of abuse and neglect will alter how ANYBODY turns out. Things have happened in my adulthood that have fucked me up. However I had a happy childhood. I wish to go back to it. Then maybe people would actually care about me.

      • So, if we were to ask whether you’d prefer your childhood self to be protected or some random autistic woman, which would you choose? Trauma in childhood literally damages psychological development, which is already complete by adulthood.

  • Men have always been the most expendable. Theres a reason society has historically run a certain way. Women are the baby makers and they can raise children on their own if need be. Children are the most important thing for the future of a society, they're the least expendable. Military age men can die if need be and the children will soon grow and take their place and run society. If you destroy the children your society collapses in one generation.

  • Protection often comes in the form of restriction and regulation. Children are so highly guarded because they are unable to guard themselves, and are restricted far more as compared to adults who enjoy liberties and freedoms.

    You can not have safety and freedom. As it is often our own actions that put us in harms way.
    If you want special care and attention, you must be ready to play by rules that make you easier to manage.

  • They're expendable, they don't contribute anything and you can always have more.

  • Severely disabled people don’t contribute anything to society and just consume resources. Children have the potential to grow up and achieve things. It doesn’t really matter what happens to disabled adults because it has no consequence for anyone but them. If you fuck up a generation of children, that has consequences for everyone

    • I hope to god you never have kids and if you do god save them, god help them if one of them is autistic as you would be unfit as a parent.

  • You can't convince me. Someone who is dependant on social workers, psychologists and government aid has less value than a child. You're wasting resources on someone who doesn't contribute

    • You're an ableist idiot. Who gives a fuck about "value"? In the end, the universe does not value anybody more than anyone else. Fuck "resources." Shows what truly matters to humans. Not individual lives with feelings. Children don't contribute either. I have no less value than a child.

        • I am not expendable, I am not a resource to be "used" I am a living, sentient being with feelings who deserves as much right to live as anyone or anything else.

          • I really hope you have a job, otherwise yes, you are definetly expandable. If you cant pay your own bread you're leeching off of taxpayer money.

            • Nope. I am not a resource to be "used." I am a sentient being with feelings and that's what makes someone matter. No human being or living thing is "expendable" because we are not objects. Also children don't have jobs or contribute anything, therefore judging by your logic, they are no less "expendable" than me. You are the living embodiment of "you don't matter, give up, you're useless". Which makes you a terrible person. Also learn to spell properly. At least I can spell.

  • "I don't think age matters" but no one wants to save the elderly! Man, I know your life expectancy drops as you get older, but I didn't take into account people just leaving you to die because you don't count as a "vulnerable adult."
