Ageism at work here. It’s bullying. “We big adults make rules, you kids have no legal say”. Pissed me off then, pisses me off now.
That line always spoke to me. Granted, when I was going through puberty, I hated the song ’cause I didn’t want to “turn and face” anything. But I got over it. Bowie was right.
First memory of eye-opening to the BS of the adult world was around 8 yrs old with advertising. Just grew since then and found it more and more in every aspect of life. Internet was the best freedom for kids.
