Over the past couple of years, a lot of people have said some pretty mean and nasty things to me for liking Sesame Street. It's mainly because most people don't find it okay for adults to watch it, since it's mainly aimed at kids. Here is an example of what someone said to me about it: hi Yes? why is it that everyone tells me so much stuff that I don't like? Because it's common sense, which you obviously lack. but I know a lot of people my age that like kids shows! And? If they jumped off the cliff, would you/ but why is it a bad thing? I don't understand! Because you should be watching things more relevant to your age to help you grow as a person, not stuck back when you're 8. what would you do if you had a son who was 16 years old that loved SS? THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH IT! I would block the channel. Yes, she is. what do you mean? do you watch TV at all? why do you think they have celebrity appearances? hello? Yes, I watch TV. Of course. I would ask if you're retarded, but....that's pretty much already answered. but I don't understand why it's harmful I mean, can it do bad things to you? BECAUSE YOU'RE 16 NOT 8. LET IT GO. DROP IT. GROW UP. IT'S GETTING YOU STUCK IN CHILDHOOD. IT'S NOT ALLOWING YOU TO THINK FOR YOUSELF. IT'S NOT LETTING YOU THINK AND SAY "HEY HOW WOULD NORMAL PEOPLE HANDLE THIS?" but I know people who watch Sesame Street they work on it No instead you think, "How would a 9 year old handle this?" SO WHAT? so it's okay for adults to like it! If they shot themselves, would you! 10:54 PM what TV shows do you watch? Shows. And not kid ****. you don't know what autism is Um, okay. I work with foster children-whom-out of the 11, 8 of them have it. So don't try to say I don't know what crap is. Kthxbye how old are they? Lots of different ages do they like kids shows? No, they like being outside. They like social interaction. With people close to them. so, they're different than me Obviously. but a lot of people think that TV in general really isn't good for you and so if you're going to use your time watching TV, you should be watching something productive Okay stop talking to me about SS. This is just ridiculously stupid. You're 16, not 8. no I'm not 16 I'm 23 SO THAT MAKES IT WORSE. Goodbye. That's just one example. It really hurt me very badly. Anyway, because of things like this, I actually feel bad about it a lot more now than I did like 5 years ago. I've been an MC member for quite some time now, and as you probably know, I really didn't have a problem with it then. But I've gotten older, and sort of have been "slapped in the face of reality," and it's obvious that more people have a problem with it than not. And I can sort of understand why people see it as a "baby show." See, because I (and a lot of other MC members) have autism, it often keeps me from seeing things clearly, and one of my big weaknesses is reading comprehension, and that may be one of the main reasons why I find SS interesting, because most adults actually think it's boring. I mean, sure, some adults may think it's a cool show, but they're not going to like willingly watch it, even if they have time. So, I really do feel bad for liking the show now, and a part of me wishes that I didn't. But I feel like I CAN'T give it up, because I love the show. And if you have a show that you love, it's like you have to see it. You know what I mean? Anyway, what do you people think of all this?
