Top Ten Reasons Why It Sucks to Be 12

Sure, I have difficulties with being 12, but I hardly think being 13 would be any better.
The Top Ten
1 "Sorry, you must be at least 13 to use [website]"

This sucks! I'm 13 now finally, but for real, when I was 12, literally Every website says "You need to be 13"...12 years olds act exactly or almost like teenagers! Better than needing to be 18 I guess

Good thing I'm turning 14 this year. Oh and by the way, you could always use a fake age on these sort of sites.

2 Older kids bully you

Dear older sisters: We get it. You are now a teenager and get Facebook. Good. For. You. That is still nit an excuse to boss us around.

This doesn't change when you're 13 though. I still see kids born in 2008-2010 being bullied for their birth year.

"Haha I'm born in 2005-2006 I am superior to the uncultured swines who are born in 2007-2009"

STFU your ageist attitude is no better than the apparent immaturity in 2007-2009 born.

3 "Please enter your parent's email address"

Use your own email. Parents delete these messages without reading them.

4 No going to see a PG-13 movie by yourself

I think if someone's still 12, but completely understands that scenes in movies and lyrics in songs shouldn't be taken too seriously, s/he should be allowed to watch/listen to whatever s/he wants

5 People don't take you seriously

I am older than twelve and no one takes me seriously unless I threaten them. I am kinda smart, listen to me.

People hardly ever take you seriously when you're a kid, I'm sick of it.

6 The librarian won't let (or at least disapproves of letting) you get a teen/young adult/adult book.
7 You aren't viewed as mature, responsible, or trustworthy

I can't even have social media cause my dad thinks I'm not responsible

8 People still call you a little kid

I am 11 years old, gonna be 12 this month (August). I hate being called a little kid so much. One time, my mom called me and my brother little kids. My brother is 13. It's so annoying.

9 You're going through puberty
10 Adults still talk about you in front of you.

11 You still have to order from the kid's menu at restaurants

Dude I'm Almost 20. My dad wouldn't let me order from the Adult's menu until I turned 13.

You don't have to. I am younger than 12 and I don't have to if I don't want to.

12 You can't drive

I have to take my bike or roller blades everywhere.

13 You are viewed as a child

That's because you still are one.

14 Everyone mistakes your age.

Let me tell you something, everyone thought I was 12 when I was 14-15. I don't think it's even a bad thing to don't look like your age especially when you look younger. It's annoying when people see it as something negative

People still think I'm 16. I'm three years younger!

People think I'm 9 or 10. Gee, it's almost 12.

15 You're not a teen

Being 13-15 is almost exactly the same as being 12 though.

16 You have to go to school

You'll still have to go to school even on your 13th birthday.

17 Everyone uses 12 as an insult
18 You have to have adult supervision for everything

I'm old enough now, I don't need supervision for anything.

Not true. I do many things unsupervised.

19 You're in grade 6
20 People see all of you as extremely immature, irresponsible and wild

This sadly doesn't change until you turn 16 or so.

21 You're still a kid
22 You can't have sex

Just because you're 13+ years old doesn't mean that you can immediately have sex now. Even when you become a teenager, you have to wait a few more years before having sex. I don't even know who put this here.

Which makes sense, it's not good to have underaged sex. Just wait until you are an adult. Imagine a 12 year old kid having sex, just don't do it please

23 You can't date
24 You can't go out in the night
25 You get depressed

You can get depressed at any age. Also not everyone gets depressed specially because they are 12. I feel bad for depressed people but this item doesn't fit in this list
