Childish vs Apparent Maturity by endler Childish vs Apparent Maturity by endler
"If liking something makes me a child, but wailing about it makes me adult, I'll happily stay a child in your eyes."

Because, honestly, if I had to choose risking looking like an apparent brat that needs to grow up just because I enjoy things that are made for young people, or seeming mature in people's eyes by constantly wailing in a negative fashion how these people all need to grow up for just liking something that I don't like and sticking my nose into the business of people I will never meet in my life and within two decades will completely forget about as I look back onto my life and realize how much more time I wasted than anyone who spent their time just truly enjoying something...

I suppose in the eyes of...complete strangers I'm always going to be a bratty kid that needs to grow up because I enjoy collecting figurines that are not of the colour black.

And no, this isn't just for FIM. I enjoy many things that are considered for younger folks - evident from other stamps I enjoy collecting plush animals (Webkinz especially), I enjoy going onto those sites that were originally meant for adults but then were for kids but now mostly adults flood it (Neopets), enjoy collecting toys outside of figurines (Lalaloopsys) and enjoy watching all matters of cartoons meant for little kids.

If being involved with all of that makes me a kid, even though I try my best not to be a douche about my likings, then I'm a kid. c:

People who like cartoons AKA "childish" stuff:
Person 1: Goku is better than Superman!
Person 2: Goku couldn't even touch Superman!
*continues pointless arguments over the internet*

People who like sports AKA "adult stuff":

Person 1: MY soccer team is better!
Person 2: Your goalie fucking moves like a crippled retard!
*gets in a drunk argument and then a riot occurs*

One of these sounds more immature than the other.

Why doesn't Deviantart have a 'fave comment' button? Seriously.

I agree with what you said. Adults act like they're the big guys, when children can make better sense. Watch the 'Kids React to Gay Marriage' video, and you may know where I'm coming from.

I have seen it and you are absolutely right.

Kids watching it:
Kid 1: Are those guys getting married? That's weird. *chuckles*
Kid 2: Awww...that's sweet.
Kid 3: ......*not sure what he is watching*

Adults watching it:
Adult 1: This is sick and these guys should be arrested for such perversion!
Adult 2: Pfft, look at these fags. Probably couldn't get a girl so they had to be butt buddies with their best friend.
Adult 3: Look at these brave souls! They are an inspiration to us all and our government needs to see that there is nothing wrong with it!

The kids act completely mature about it while adults on either side will make it a big deal. Children at times can act better than most adults because children still have that spark of innocence and usually don't think of personal gain or what other people are doing. Adults are either thinking too much of themselves or getting too involved with other people's business.

Mhmm. :nods: Also, you seem to be using a lot of reactions as examples. I like it. :) (Smile)

Yay, glad you do. I just felt it'd show the point more than me describing it myself, plus I role play a lot so I am more comfortable pretending to be someone else than just being me talking about something else. :3

Oh my gosh. I can't count how many times I've been told to "grow up huehue" because I like Webkinz, Club Penguin, Neopets, Littlest Pet Shop and Build a Bear. And because I have a big Lion King collection. As if liking some computer games and stuffed animals makes me a bad person. 
This stamp makes me so happy. I'm just so glad people feel the same!! uvu
