    Is 18 not of legal adult age in your country? (assuming, of course, that you don't live in the US of A)

    There are studies showing that watching pornography at young ages can lead to being sexual deviants (including becoming a pedophile); but I watched porn as a child and, while I'm very weird, I don't rape children or anything of the sort.

    Children shouldn't be exposed to sexual material such as pornography for very serious reasons. I don't even think people under the age of 21 should have sex lol

    I think 18 is a perfectly fine age, 16 if you really want to push it. Exposing children to sexual material is completely unacceptable.

    There's a difference between exposing a child to such material(s) and having one's child exposed to that sort of material. I started viewing pornographic images at age 7, or so. It has been part of my life ever since that age to some degree.

    If you consider alcohol, multiple culture introduce their young to alcohol at early'ish ages. That can have both a psychological and physiological effect on development. Pornography, this is an assumption, seems to only have a psychological effect. Would you rather a child drink alcohol or view pornographic media? But this question is unfair. There are people who have natural proclivities toward a deviant nature of any variety. Some people live a "perfect" life and wind up killers. So we have to include their nature and their nurturing environment (all of them including school, home, church, etc). Because we can't predict the future (some who are "meant" to be killers, rapists, doctors, drug addicts find other channels to focus their directive power into) it's best to have set ages that are backed by laws.

    Thus

    16 driving(even though many farm kids have been driving since age 10)
    18 smoking/porn
    21 drinking
    etc.

    I'm a firm believer that it is possible for people's mentalities to pass the level of plasticity at early ages. Also, if you tell someone that something is wrong or they are told so, or it's an unspoken societal norm, more severe effects can be yielded.

    It all depends on culture and context.
    Essene reflects much of American thinking including supportive of the so call "drinking " age of 21 and I won't even start on the others on your list.
    How bizarre that seems to Europeans and others like me who had their first table beer with meals at age 5 yet develop into responsible citizens with moderation in consumption of alcohol.
    You guys have repressive and restrictive laws for almost everything (except gun control) then espouse the notion that you are a nation of the free!
    Essentially it boils down to learning late, learning the hard way and making all the stupid mistakes that others in the world have long remedied.

    Unfortunately I can't be this succinct. Bravo.

    When the "American mindset" is talked about, and even looked down on, I think it's rather unfair. America is a hodgepodge of a cornucopia of races, dogmas, etc. What might be right for one culture/person may not be right for another. In other countries, there seems to be a greater sense of oneness as apposed to the amalgam that is American culture. I understand that it occurs in other countries as well (such as the the differences between Hungarians and Russians). But I can leave my area of living and easily see a Muslim, an Asian, a black person, a white person, and a midget all in the same group.

    More on point:

    I'm not saying that our system is the best system by any means. In fact here's a quote that supports drinking at a young age:

    Drinking responsibly from young can really help, your liver can learn how to cope with alcohol more than others and its been proved that those whose parents let them have alcohol young are more responsible when older.

    But it's the system we have. Altering it for minors could prove hazardous as, like I said, knowing that something was wrong, once it has been ingrained, will usually remain part of their working understanding of their society. It may be okay for Tommy Pickles to view porn at the age of 10; but, going back to what MoralDeviant said, it might seriously scar Chuckie Finster. That is what we want to avoid. Sure, kids experiment and try to push the envelope. But, knowing the dangers of pornography, alcohol, driving, sex, etc, many think it's best to provide the, quite often, much needed and much wanted structure to aid in forming them in to better people and better adults. Don't get me wrong or twist my words. What works for other cultures/nations is fine; but in the US' multi-cultural socioeconomy I think that these preventative measures are needed.

    P.S.- Most of the people I know who have been raised around guns respect them, nature, and themselves with firearms.

    Why is that it angered you and why does it mean jail to you?
