should we?

just because we're younger(im 18) should we automatically respect people that are older than us? or only if they deserve it? do younger generations always rebel against the older, or is that a more modern thing for our generation? what do you think?

i tend to have more respect for older people than people my own age, but not everyone on general principle just because they are older. i cant stand people i dont respect, but i have high standards about things. i think our own attitudes towards other people really reflect onto us more than them, tho.

and no, youre not cool for being a rebellious teenager. youre a generic stereotype.

Of course we should respect our elders. Without them we wouldn't be around. We wouldn't have the music we know and love today.
#3
I respect people who are older than me. Why? Because they have been through more than I have. And I agree, rebel punks are stupid, annoying, and they smell like crap. Seriously, they really need to take a shower.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

so you respect all people that are older than you? understandable, but i think some people dont deserve respect.

and yes, showers could help everyone.

I'm pretty sure Charles Manson is older than me, so no. That's stupid.

yes. i respect my elders, mainly because of what IMABBALLPLAYER said, because they've been through harder **** then we've gone through; but at the same time i rebel against older people who act retarded, trying to get respected by being "cool".

Well no. Not everyone. You know what I mean, people who have learned from the mistakes they've made to do great things, or people who have lived good lives and stuff.

Well, I tend to, but that doesn't really mean they deserve it more than any other person

I don't think elders deserve respect simply for the fact that they are our elders. Most elders deserve our respect because of what they've done, not because of their age. Respect could be based off wisdom, which is thought to come with age, but I've met a lot of 20 year olds that are wiser than 50 year olds I know, so who knows when it comes to wisdom.
But I base my respect mainly off of the person and how they act compared to my expectations for them. If I see a 4 year old say something smart, I will have a lot of respect for said 4 year old, since i wouldn't expect him to say anything smart and he would have exceeded my expectations. The same goes for any other age, as long as the person exceeds my expectations, he will gain my respect.
my opinion anyways.

I think we should respect all people for what they are.

i hate 70% of old people, not because im trying to be rebellious but because i hate their attitude that our opinions are wrong because theyv lived longer than us. Eg my grandparents goin on about my hair when i grow it out etc, and they just cant accept the fact that i want long hair, its like foreign to them and they think im like really stupid or gay or something, theyr very closed-minded people, bless 'em

I respect people if they gain my respect. Simple as that. I don't do it to be nice, I don't do it because I have to. I try to treat everyone with respect until they prove to me that they do not deserve to be treated that way.

why thank you good sir.

i kind of agree with you here. it seems like lots of old people are really set in their ways. but then again, theyve been around for longer than us, they might know something we dont. its kind of like when people get really old they tend to act more like children, and always have to have their own way and never want to try new things.

I don't automatically respect older people just because they are older. I respect people that are wiser, sometimes wisdom comes with age for some however it never comes so i would have no respect for some dumbass 45 year old pothead who works min wage at a grocery store, for example.

If the respect if mutual then I have no qualms about it towards anyone of any age.

Im not going to be disrespected by a grumpy old man/woman and continue to show respect towards that person, but that goes for anyone I come into contact with.

Yeah, i mean, its not like i only hate old people, for that, anyone with that attitude that their opinion is not only above everyone elses but people who have different opinions have somehow been misled into believing the wrong thing, which is what many old people are like.
F_ckin elitist grannies.

Oh and to the guy who said oh no i cant grow my air out or whatever, grow up i clearly stated what i don't like about some elderly people and provided an example, im not saying im right about being allowed to grow my hair, or that old people are wrong for thinking otherwise, but im allowed to have the option to grow my hair without being called (not so subtly) girly looking by an old woman who has about as much wisdom as a cat on heroin (which, if you're wondering, have no wisdom whatsoever)

there is a difference between disagreeing with someones view and disrespecting them. I respect people on their character not so much on their wisdom. My respect would sooner go to someone that is dumb as a rock and a great person, than to someone that is smart as hell and an egotistical jackass. I offer respect to everyone I meet, they either deserve it or don't, but respect is not freely given to anyone.
#25
No, **** chivalry.


...But seriously, I respect my elders normally, but if they're douche bags, not so much.
#26
To a certain extent. I'm not going to give respect to 60 year olds who live in housing commission shooting up. I respect elders who have been through and done certain things and maintain a level of dignity. I also don't respect elders who are, in a way, elitists (as in, just because the youth of today doesn't do what their youth considered the trends, to not have a go at them because of it.)

Good point but i don't respect old people when they have an attitude that says "I've been alive for about forty years more than you so you're stupid"
To me, they're no better than racists or homophobes

personally i think it depends on who they are. I was walking across the beach one day and there was a path, on one part of the path i saw a old man coming towards me, i moved aside and then he called me a young hoodlem or somthing. iwhy should i respect a old fucccck like him.
#29
i think theres a difference between 40-50 year olds with life experience, and bat**** insane 80 year olds. it seems like old people are just as bad.

that being said, i cant wait untill i can be a crazy old guy. im gonna be the crazyist old guy ever. gtfo my lawn.

There are lots of people I know that are older than me and I have near to no respect for them as I think a 5 year old has more common sense then them.

But there are also lots of adults that I have loads of respect for. But I do think that respect is a two way street. We had one teacher that said to us "All the kids at this school think we need to earn their respect, when in reality we should have it straight away!"
That was one of the most ignorant things I have heard. How can you expect respect from us when you cannot respect your students?

Yeah we got into a huge argument with a teacher as well, she said we should automatically respect her because shes a human being, this did not go down well. My response: "would you respect hilter if he was alive today?" that shut her up

imo, old people suck
