    So? Will you name any other personal characteristics that nobody cares about?
    You clearly care about the matter of respect since it is was the subject of your original post.

    Proof is only possible in the field of mathematics.

    However, to suggest that all teenagers are the same is to in effect suggest that all over-20s are the same. Unless, that is, you honestly believe that an enormous biological and psychological event happens on the exact day they turn 20 in which they differentiate into different people.
    I don't care again. I think that teenagers aren't different, but are. If they are different, then there would be no peer pressure, or certain activities seen as being geeky, or pressure to conform to cool activities. If a teen said s/he liked gardening, or sowing, then this would be mocked. An older person saying this wouldn't be as such, if at all.

    I don't care again, since only a buffoon knows that people are not different. teens are different, big deal.

    You're typing a lot but not really saying much. You say that there would be no peer pressure against activities such as gardening if teens were different. I question the trail of logic that led you to this conclusion. Those applying the peer pressure are often from a certain social group of teenagers. The mere fact that a particular group of teenagers applies peer pressure to conform to their ideals, whilst another group doesn't apply pressure, is by no means an indication that the ideals of the pressure-applying group are somehow more reflective of teen ideals in general.

    lol... you're a fool. If what you are saying is true, then why do plenty of people in the H&R forum post threads about how people are weird for liking xyz thing?

    You're lying, admit it. Teenagers cannot perceive relative personalities.

    So you think it's weird that one person finds weird a thing that someone else doesn't find weird? Sounds like typical human nature to me.

    You're lying. The H&R forum is full of people telling others they are geeks for liking such and such.

    If acceptance/relativism is a good, then all likings must be respected, per definition.

    I don't. Everything is normal in life, yet nothing is normal and everything is subjective.

    All likings must be respected by everyone? I can't think of a single demographic ir psychographic group in the entire world in which that is the case - thus, teenagers are no different in this respect to any other group.

    No, if everything is relative in life, then nothing can be objectively invalid. Invalidity never really exists.

    Of course, all teenagers are different, but most are exact.

    In the same sense that most members of every other demographic or psychographic group are exactly the same as most other members of their groups, yes. However, these people are not exactly the same.

    Just let people be who they want to be. If it doesn't hurt you, or anyone else, it shouldn't matter.
