Re: Learning how to respect other SubChatters

"I tried to debate him, which was when he argued that my age (over 18) combined with the fact that I disagreed with him was evidence that I could handle being an officer in the army in Iraq and commanding soldiers during operations under fire, but couldn't handle one drink at home"

Because those are two separate things, and are not automatically linked. Respect for an underage soldier does not mean you give the soldier anything he wants. You give him that which he can handle. There is good evidence to show that an 18-year old's brain, on average, is affected much more by alcohol than a 21 year old's brain.

It takes maturity to understand that. You do not possess this maturity.
