AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA DEAR GOD, NO.
I’m really sorry for anyone who thinks like that. Yes. ALL OF THE JOY MUST SUCK FROM YOUR LIFE the moment the clock strikes 12. The moment you turn 26.
You do a reverse magical girl transformation.

Sadly, it’s true. See, I made a pact with the Evil Queen Nerdyl and she granted me the power of eternal enthusiasm and self assuredness for the interests that make me happy. It’s almost like the power she granted me gave me the strength to enjoy what I enjoy without believing I’m not allowed to because I surpassed the age limit dictated to be “too old”.
I am honestly baffled as to where kids come up with this shit. I know I didn’t think this way when I was a teenager, so… what the fuck?
If I may toss my two cents in, I think it’s because kids constantly hear some iteration of this phrase from their parents at various stages of their development, i.e. “you’re too old to drink that”, “you’re too young to play this game” and the like. I think it just doesn’t register to them yet that when they reach the age where they can live on their own they will be able to set their own rules and limitations.
For me, that was the best part of moving out. I can keep my fridge stocked with Capri-Sun and Sunny D and God help anyone who thinks they can stop me :D
Hm, maybe that’s part of it - other than when I was having meltdowns I never got lectured by my mom about doing something I was “too old” for. She’d gotten that as a kid and clearly resented the hell out of it and didn’t want to do that to me. (Well, that and I was a weird kid with more than enough issues and too much emotional burden already, but. *flaps hands*)lolz. nobody tell these clueless children how many of the comics, shows and stories they totally obsess over are written by people much older than even we are.
i do often wonder if they believe movies and television are created by teenagers somehow
