Age discrimination stamp v1 by griffsnuff Age discrimination stamp v1 by griffsnuff
xD oh man how many times do I hear this one.  Didnt find a stamp like this so I made one.


Its more common to hear this complaint by people younger than 20, or around 20 and adress it to people over 25-35 for some stupid reason. As if society demands that particular group to act a certain way?? I mean why so many angry fights over stopping the stereotyping of genders/races/people in general, but you do it with age xD lmao.


Omfg griffsnuff is "insert guessed age" and she does silly shit???? the fuq, she should be wearing suits and ties and going to important meetings and have their second child by now and only be serious because omfg I love to stereotype how people should act and not at different ages!!1one


People who use age as an argument to try and bring others down always makes me laugh, I think ive heard any version possible so far xD when it comes to myself. tell me under from your own experiences with this! even at other ages if your younger or older!

I've always been on the tiny side, so even though I'm 24, I'm often mistaken for a young adult around 14-17 depending on the person.  Basically, by the time someone knows my real age, they have already accepted that I'm just a goofball.  

I think people try to place age on some pedestal , like being over XX age means you've accomplished X, act like X, and don't ever do X anymore. But if you don't look like the age that you are, then you are treated as the age you are perceived to be.

Age discrimination all around!

I get called immature a lot in work, but in a kinda friendly way. Even though I'm only 23 people seem to think I should be acting a lot "older" which I think means more serious and more boring, haha!

I mean, if you're silly then you're still hanging on and not letting the world get you down! Or you're being silly because that's how you cope with the world being shitty. I know I do. Adulting is very hard and being serious all the time just isn't how I roll. I love to live life loud and be colorful. A poop joke here and there and goofy clothes isn't going to do anything. 

Same can be said about liking "childish" things. I got back eyeing the colorful, bright, (and sparkly) kid drapes in the store. Does wanting drapes with holographic shiny pieces in my room make me childish or immature? I sure would hope not cause it's just a piece of fabric. Sheesh.

Darlin', I'm over 50, and I still enjoy being silly!  (Why yes, I do get into tickle-wrestling with my husband, and we laugh til our sides hurt!  And being cat lovers, and owned by two cats, we will sometimes rub our cheeks on each other while saying; '..and this is mine...' ;) )

I think I've seen people, in attempt to insult me, call me an insecure 12 year old trying to sound mature or something...
I'm actually older than that - But I have sisters coming close to that age.

When did '12' become an insult? It shouldn't be.   Though lack of life-experience may be capable of causing insecurity, snobbishness, spoiled-ness, that sort of thing, I wouldn't say it's 100%.  And some young people, actually go through a lot, in what length of years they've lived. And some people, are still insecure, and snobbish, even when they're older. 

As well as, life experience and or even troubles - as this stamp implies - should not decree that one is not to be silly.
It's a beautiful thing when someone can still enjoy life and be happy, even after seeing it's impurities.

Thankfully I've never been confronted with people directly calling me immature (and I just turned 25 recently), except the occasional lighthearted jab from my family for still owning/collecting a bunch of plushies and cosplaying and going to conventions at my age. But sometimes I still get this feeling that I'm not living up to society's expectations because I'm in my mid-20s and still enjoy those kinds of things... So anyway, thank you for this stamp.

It's so awesome to find people who understand this!! :D My bf and I get so sick of people (a lot of which are right around our age) telling us that we're "too old" to draw cartoon characters just because we're in our 20s. But to me, that's a really stupid thing for them to say, because if you think about it, WHO ELSE makes cartoons?? Animation is a very complicated process and I don't think 5 year olds know how to do it. These people also get so upset and worked up over us liking cartoons and video games like Pokemon, and I'm just thinking "why??" Who cares what we enjoy as long as it's not causing anyone any harm? At least we aren't doing drugs, getting drunk, committing crimes, or popping out a bunch of kids we aren't ready for. Maybe they're just jealous because they feel they have to follow all the rules of conformity in order to be "acceptable" to society, and here we are having fun being ourselves and not giving a crap.

I'm 24 and can be formal for jobs or holidays and the like, but when I'm at home and with friends I'm playing card games like Pokemon, Magic, and others?? I'm a huge gaming nerd and my favorite thing is buying packs of cards and opening them. I'm like a kid.
If that is immature I'll never grow up : )

I can't remember where I read it, but I saw a quote recently that says something about a good fantasy writer retains a child's sense of wonder with an adult's mind. I find this useful for any creative type as knowledge of how things work can only get you so far if your work doesn't have that spark of life that comes from being yourself. For many, this involves being silly.

I actually don't personally know anyone who's entirely serious all the time. The most serious people I know tend to be the most unhappy. A few of them are also the people who scorned me and my older sister recently for attempting to suspend her boss's stapler in jello because it was "immature" and "childish" even though her boss got a kick out of it. Meanwhile, some of the silliest people I know are among the most successful, and not all in creative-type jobs, either.

My mom actually gets really ticked off at me and my older sister whenever we sit down to have our "serious family meetings" as we're frequently cracking jokes. It's not that like we aren't serious when we actually need to be, but laughing is our way of lightening the mood, making way for us to feel comfortable speaking freely.

If you think about it, if everyone had to be serious all the time, we wouldn't have such awesomely strange things as Discworld or Welcome to Night Vale or My Little Pony. These all involve people well over twenty letting loose and being silly. There wouldn't even have been a William Shakespeare! In short, the world would be a very boring and dull place.

What is an adult is very grey. it is impossible to fill all the shoes that is said to be adult, does it mean your not an adult if you for example do not fill one of 10? xD so its pretty vauge. And what is not mature is also very vauge. Being silly is on both of them so they are neither

Well yes, all of these things I know well. It's just that BY DEFINITION being immature is not behaving like an adult. And yes, common sense, blah, blah, etc. But I'm talking about what the word "immature" literally means.

griffsnuff Featured By Owner May 1, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Yes but what is concidered adult and not is EXTREMELY vauge. So no one is denying that not being mature means being immature, people are arguing that being silly does not automatically make you immature, because its not a trait only given to one side. xD

Yeah but.

BY DEFINITION though.

Immature = not-like-an-adult-or-something.

BY DEFINITION. Not by common sense.
