Which is why as a 43 year old man I have no issues dating 21 year olds. We are on the same page.

Which is why co-ed schools that group kids by age is a mistake.  I'm convinced that it's the number one cause of problems that seem endemic between the sexes in Western Countries.  Boys and girls need to be separated until they reach college age.

Is "mature" a code word for something else, you know, something having to do with insanity?  I know men are idiots, 24/7, from birth on, but, being the father and step-father of 4 women, and married to another one, I don't know if "mature" is the correct term.
 
2013-12-21 12:57:14 PM
That explains why they turn into humourless harridans so quickly, I guess.
 
2013-12-21 12:58:03 PM
Sure, they mature to about 15 years old quicker. Then they are stuck there.

Ha.  Don't quit your day job.

Look at the rate of divorce, never married people, and the plummeting birth rate in most Western countries.   The West had modernized itself into the cemetery.

Not sure if trolling or seriously believes present co-ed schooling causes this, and therefore retarded...

yet a 35 year old man is taking advantage of a vulnerable 16 year old girl while a 35 year old woman is giving a 16 year old boy the time of his life that he is fully mature enough to appreciate.

Speaking as somebody who went to an ll-boys school, you can go fark yourself. Part of schooling is social development. Isolating from the other sex is about as healthy as homeschooling in your little backwoods shack.

It just takes longer to get it right.

Maturity is just a measure of growth rate, what this says is that women stop growing sooner, whereas men continue.

I grew up the only man (dad not around) in a house with mom, 4 sisters. In the intervening 53 years have had girlfriends, wife, etc.

Not a one of them wasn't a farking imbecile.
 
2013-12-21 01:14:41 PM
They must use a sliding scale to measure this mature thing. For example you never see boys going crazy over the Bieber or another girl like him..

On a more tragic note , judging just by the news they seem to drive each other toward and choose to self opt out in greater numbers than boys . Also have more body image issues, eating disorders etc. It seems a higher level of maturity would have less of that.

The problem starts by using age THE group definition in the first place.
Logic would dictate grouping classes by learning style and ability.
But, what why would one apply logic, the cost is just too damn high.

Fortunately, you also beat me to the extremely sexist, misogynistic stuff as well, which I wasn't even going to post, because, holy crap, is that wrong.

I thought you didn't care about such things, being just about asexual by your own admission, or does it sting a bit more than you like to admit?

BTW, it's even better that you imagine.

I'm going to agree with this, having gone to a all male Catholic high school.  Approx. 20 years ago, the school surveyed the alumni about going co-ed and I gave it a big "YES", because I thought it would bring a civilizing element to what was nothing but a big, idiotically violent, sausage fest.

Yep. It's a locker room culture the whole school day. At least for prisons, it's a punishment for wronging society and/or protecting others.

How about a 40ish year old dating a 28 year old or a 26 year old or a 25 year old? 'Cus I've lived those dreams.

We get it QA, you are short, fat, old, hairy in all the wrong places and bitter about it. Genetics farked you. Stop boring us with it. Science wont make you young again or let you live forever. Get over it.

Why? Because I don't need to see hot females at all times? You know what would've made more sense in HS, than checking out biatches? Doing well, so later on I could make big $$$. Big $$$ gets girls. All HS was was a tease, what guy likes to be teased? Anyways, less distractions, more focus on studies, would mean more success now and more females.

Besides, there's porn all over the internet. So why do you need to see/interact with females at all times? Me, 13, with braces, acne, breaking voice, was no time to be interacting with them. All it did was make me feel like a piece of shiat. And that's true for a lot of men. Its best just to wait til you're no longer awkward, and if you need to see females go look at porn. My point is, sexuality shouldn't be FORCED on kids by forcing that coed environment on them.
 
2013-12-21 01:48:04 PM
It's not the rate of maturation, it's the total amount. If they're as mature as they are going to get by 20, that's not a good thing.

Stops maturing sooner is not the same as matures faster.

Are you seriously suggesting porn is a health substitute for real-life interactions with female peers, both romantic/sexual and platonic?
