As a teenager here on destee and in the real world, I find it hard to find my rightful place. For example, it seems some adults find it uncomfortable that we venture into the relationship thread and ask and answer what some might consider intimate questions. When we ask questions about these things, we are met with "stay in school, don't do drugs, wait until your married" the usual tirade that all adults give to individuals my age. But if we were to stick to everyone's comfort zone, the teenagers of destee would not have very far to roam at all. It seems we are limited to the teenaged, poetry, and open forum. I feel that if we were to raise a question in the forum concerning men and woman, my age would be challenged and brought into question. (There are certain limitations on this though, and I understand that is not always the case.) Of course I understand everyones kind and caring concern, but sometimes a straight forward answer would be nice. Can someone please explain the role of teeagers in the destee family and community? Where exactly does the discomfort lie, and what can we do to addresse this?
