10 Signs You’re Experiencing Adultism

Here’s the new “10 Signs You’re Experiencing Adultism” poster I made for The Freechild Project. Following are the 10 signs:

  1. “You’ll understand when you get older” is your middle name.
  2. You’re forced to go to school.
  3. You aren’t allowed to choose your clothes, the people you hang out with, or the places you spend your time.
  4. You can’t make decisions about your own body without parental consent.
  5. You do the same work for less pay than adults.
  6. Adults say, “Because I said so,” to you.
  7. You have to take standardized tests in underfunded schools.
  8. Marketers sell you cool things instead of useful things.
  9. You can’t vote because you’re under a certain age.
  10. The sign says, “No two people under 18 without adult supervision.”

Other signs: Arbitrary punishments, Driving While Young, School-to-Prison Pipeline, School choice, Forced medical care, No access to banking, Access to healthcare, Standardized curriculum, Age of candidacy, Commercialization of youth culture… And So Much More!
