Quote# 125547

The issue is that the mind is ever developing until we hit a peak and decay, like most things in a body, for a female peak fertility is probably 16-29. After that aging catches up and eggs start to run out. A woman has limited time to reproduce most healthy. To begin with the way it works. During puberty all the eggs start getting released, they basically freeze and unfreeze over time, problem is, the longer they stew the more chance for genetic errors, resulting in increasing rates of birth disorder or miscarrages as women get older. The idea that adults are 20+ and marriage even further hitting 30s, is not just bad for marriage rates, but bad biologically.

This is reality and we all have to live in it. Women are naturally attracted to older mates and men naturally attracted to younger ones. Being reasonable is important but I think the acceptable range is higher than most people think and irrelevant beyond a certain point.

We wouldn't hit puberty so early if nature didn't design **** that way and actually we're hitting puberty sooner and developing faster than ever before. And the average age varies by race but on average starts at 11.5. The idea that you're not an adult until almost a decade later is ludicrous.

There's almost no point at which something stops growing, and in reality, adulthood is actually the point at which the body begins to degrade and that's what aging is. We may have "long lifespans" but the reality is our minds don't.


You're literally looking at just the reproductive side of things. Nature also didn't intend for us to be monogamous or to wear clothes, or to **** in a toilet. If you're advocating for some 30+ year old creep to **** 11 year olds then move to Saudi Arabia. As I already said Physically ready to pop out kids does not equal mentally ready. Naturally we develop faster because a normal life span before modern technology was 30, we aren't meant to live as long as we do.



The BRAIN being "not finished" is always used as an argument but the BRAIN doesn't live long. By twenties it's literally all decline. 13+ but by 16 I say it's all fair game for both men and women, in fact I think we should graduate high school by 16 and gain basic legal rights, by 20ish we might graduate an average college run with no hicups. Then start a family bin the mid 20s. society, I repeat, cannot continue to push adolescence further and further the United States birthrate is already 1.8 Japan whose population is literally dying off is 1.4

Older people have more chances of having "unhealthy" ova ....and similarly unhealthy sperm. Women are attracted to older men but I'd hesitate to claim that's natural; young women look around at males their own age and find that so many of them are still living in their own extended adolescence, which is NOT attractive.

LOL. Female anatomy does not work that way; girls do not release more eggs in their teens than they do in their 30s - and the upper age for natural fertility in women is about 45.

Researchers have also discovered that a man's sperm, even though he makes it new every day, does have a "best by" date: Older men pass on more genetic mutations to their offspring than younger men do.

Moreover, the idea women are useless if they can't have kids is as appalling as claiming sterile men are useless. (Granted, the OP doesn't say that but it seems to crop up a lot in arguments about when people should do what). This "peak" bullshit should just die...and so should the racism over which his complaint of underpopulation is but a veneer. No sane person who is not also a racist would be complaining about low birth-rates in a world that contains seven billion people.

This is what happens when a pedo apologist skims a biology textbook for 30 seconds.

The planet's population is 7.5 billion.

Your paedo apologetics would only make things worse: in more ways than one.

I don't know about that, just look at all the chess players who have been grandmasters into their 50s and up. Samuel Reshevsky won his last US Championship at 57 and almost won another one at 60. Victor Korchnoi was ranked #85 in the world at the age of 75.

Just ask the deep-sea octopus. Oh wait, they did in fact keep putting off reproduction later and later (since there were fewer predators and therefore less of an incentive to reproduce as early as possible).

The end result of all this, according to a recent study, is that they evolved much longer lifespans (~10 years instead of 1-2 like in surface octopi). Deep-sea octopi are doing just fine for themselves and their society didn't collapse.

The biology of a species is not absolutely fixed over time, it can in fact change relatively quickly. If humans are living longer and staying healthy longer nowadays, why is that a bad thing?

I for one don't want to go back to the days of have-kids-at-14-then-die-at-22. Mostly because, at 27, I'd probably be dead already. And I like modern medicine, without it I'd also probably be dead.

Just to add another thing to what I was saying about old chess players...I read somewhere that those guys very rarely get things like Alzheimer's or dementia. Perhaps it's something to do with...keeping your brain in good shape, so to speak.

A female what? Octopus? Meerkat? Slug?
If it’s a woman, the peak is more like 20-35. A 16-17-year old girl’s body is not ready to give birth yet.

Eggs don’t run out until about age 45-50. A few women have given birth at age 60.

What do you mean eggs freeze and unfreeze? One egg (sometimes more) is released each month. If no fertilization occurs, menstruation happens to remove the egg and the blood-filed lining of the womb.

It’s not until after 40 that the risk of birth defects is significantly increased.

Women are naturally attracted to people of roughly the same age, and so are men. The “acceptable range” is, of course, up to each couple, as long as both are consenting and adults. An 80-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man (or the other way around) will probably get quite a few stares, though...

Puberty is a process, not a date. Puberty usually STARTS somewhere around 12-14 and ENDS somewhere around 16-18. Puberty starts earlier now because we have better nutrition, and both girls and boys gain the appropriate weight earlier. Nature designed us to end puberty around 18 or so.

Varies by race? There is only one human race. It varies more by culture; whether you see women as equal human beings or as property, expendable brood-mares.

The idea that you’re not adult until two years after puberty usually ENDS is perfectly sane.

First you say everything keeps growing, and then you say things start to degrade. Make up your mind, why don’t you?

The brain can live around 100 years. My dad’s aunt is 98 and fit as a fiddle, and her brain is working fine.

YOUR brain is obviously all decline. The rest of us; not so much.

Most countries in the West have decided, based on psychology studies, that 18 is a good age to become adult.

Starting a family in your mid-20’s is what most people do. A family can also be two people, ya know.

Japan is about half the US population on an area smaller than Texas. They’re pretty far from dying out. The world population NEEDS to be reduced, and the most humane way is to have fewer kids.

You seem to be stuttering a bit at the end there, honey…

" I think we should graduate high school by 16 and gain basic legal rights, by 20ish we might graduate an average college run with no hicups."

The frontal lobes are still not mature at that age.

Why is it I feel like bullshit like this is almost always spewed forth by a guy who's balding and looks like he's 10 years older than her is but constantly insists that men age like a fine wine.

Even though he start at 16 instead of 12, that doesn't make it less creepy or gross.

3/20/2017 9:11:45 AM



@Swede
I read that puberty(I talking about breast and hair development) is starting earlier as young as 8, but process is still slow and doesn't complete until late high school age.
