  1. This is exactly the problem though. Person A: ''Thats a teen avatar'' Person B: ''Are you blind? I'm a young adult'' You cannot draw the line very clearly between what is a teen avatar and what is not. Since we all don't want to look like 30, 40 or 50+ year old men and women I think people should not make such a big issue about it. So an avatar appears to look in his late teens (17, 18, 19). So what? Age is only a number though and I know many adults who look old but behave like a 10 year old brat.
  2. Wow such a discussion. I didn't expect that one. I realize that a lot of people use the argument that they want to escape from RL and the children there and don't want to deal with them in SL. This is both surprising and slightly shocking to me.. You can't ''pretend'' children don't exist though. Both IRL and ISL you will run into them and are expected to find a way to deal with this apparant big issue. It is also interesting that people understand and accept when you want to play a furry,vampire,cyborn etc but when you want to play a child or teenager in SL it is frowned upon. I can'
  3. I thank those who have contributed so far in a good way. The majority of the posts are constructive and honest.

I agree that really young avatars (like 5 or younger even) have no place in an adult sim. I also agree that when you visit a RP sim you should dress accordingly, so it fits the theme and you should adjust your speech to your role. If you are a 13 year old girl as your avatar then you should leave that horrible toddle
  4. Hey everyone. I wanted to discuss something with other members of SL in the hope I can understand this better. I've beeen playing SL since 2007 without any long breaks. My avatars varied from teenage boys to adult men. I never did any wolf/furry RP or Sci-fi trooper avatars though. Today I only want to discuss about 1 type of avatars, the children one. Evererywhere I go, be it a RP sim or not a RP sim I see a huge fear and hatred to child avatars. As if it is bad luck to have a child avatar on your sim. This mainly applies to RP sims though, as regular sim owners tend not to care toooo much
