Just now I saw a headline on a certain like-hunter-share-gatherer website that caught my attention. In the sea of “n+1 things that something” and “this happened, and you won’t believe what happened next” kind of titles, it was no different – but it had this phrase that I just couldn’t ignore: “kids in university”.
I know that it’s hard not to look down on everyone younger than you, but I’m quite positive that a majority of university students would be seriously offended if you called them kids. Sure students can be childishly carefree, but then again so would “adults” if they weren’t bound by the chains of corporate slavery.
It just feels so weird that you’d call someone of age, someone who can vote, a kid. I know: we should just let breastfeeders run for presidency (it might actually turn out better than the current system).
