Age discrimination links
Here are a few links to other pages of interest. I don't necessarily
agree with all of them, and some of them aren't directly related to ISP age
discrimination, but they're all worth reading for one reason or another.
- Teen Liberty
- Opposing attempts to raise the age of sexual consent in Canada. Some
proposals would make it illegal for people under the age of 16 to have
sex - at all. As if we didn't have enough problems already.
- Littleton links
- Youth violence isn't exactly an age restriction issue, but these links
could come in under the heading of
freedom to be a geek. Extra
disclaimers apply, these documents will upset you.
- John Trueman
- Reciprocal link. I've had some less than nice things to say before now
about the gay lobby in UVic student politics, and its effects on people like
myself. (Male, white, straight: three strikes against me even before I say
anything offensive.) So I'm really glad to see this fellow supporting those
of my views that he can agree with. I'll do the same for him.
- The Final
- Excellent article from
Enterprise, about the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode
Rascals interpreted in youth rights terms.
- The voting age
- I'm also opposed to the minimum voting age; I believe a central concept
of democracy is that everyone expected to obey the law must have a vote,
including people who
aren't competant to vote by reason of their age or
anything else. This link is to some writings on that topic which I posted
in a Usenet discussion.
- AS FAR
Americans for a Society Free of Age Restrictions. I am no longer a
member of this organization, but I'm sure they are still using their
informative mailing list and other resources to promote youth rights.
- Teenagers against content filtering of the Net. Includes
shocking revelations about what filter programs really block.
Peacefire is blocked by Cybersitter filtering software because of its
criticisms of their blocking policies. In fact, this page will
be blocked too just for mentioning Peacefire.
- Let kids fly!
- At some point in the dim past, before the Web, I encountered an
organization with the slogan
Let kids fly! which was opposing the
introduction of age restrictions on pilot's license examinations. If anyone
out there has more information on this organization if it still exists,
please let me know. If
they've got a web page, I'd like to link them from here.
