I am curious, is it possible for a 13 year old to be considered a man? I want a psychologist's answer to this question.

Thanks

Hell

you can legally post on topix.net at thirteen and therefore should venture out into the universe as some people know it......

I think its all relative and depends on each person. I have met some pretty responsible youngsters, only to find that they grow more immature as they embrace the culture around them.

I personally think it's very hard to determine whether or not a person is a man or not in today's American society. There really are no stone carved requirements to be a man. Many would simply say age determines "man hood", but how accurate do you really think that is? I as a 16 year old have found that i am way smarter, rational, and responsible than quite a few people around me who are "men" simply because they are 18 years of age or older, and yet i am still considered a boy. I believe that what makes someone a "man" is not a number, but their actions, maturity level, and rational thought process before taking an action.

first of all its financially impossible for a 13 year old to be an independent man you just started puberty all of a sudden you want to be a man first you need a good education you dont want to be cleaning bathrooms as a job at least a bachelor degree if you get in a university it will take 4 years after your 18th birthday you have to make good choices in life being a man is relevant if it means that it dosnt matter if your 14 and depending on the crime you could be tried as an adult then you could be raped by a man name butch in jail its not incest but as long as your not tried as an adult and butch comes to your house to rape you then its incest

why do you want to be an adult in the first place you need to be 16 to get a learners permit. 18 to model naked in pictures. 21 to drink liqour smoke and gamble in my family as long as your a year younger than the person you could have sex my family grow up fast when your 13 you could be a wanabe ganster or wankster if the family wants to support your attitude now youve been eyeing that chik or a guy 10 20 years older than and you want to be an adult to get with this person in the end thats incest
