O2 Street age

Right First off….

Play this game

How old were you? I played it a lot. To be young, you have to be a dick to everyone and pick the expensive hat.

This is supposed to make us (well those of us over 15) think about what it’s like to be a teenager in this day and age and get involved with http://o2thinkbig.co.uk it’s like Orange Rockcorps but not cool.

The problem I have with this is that it’s not just patronising to us ‘old’ folk it’s also patronising to teenagers. Calling it a ‘street age’ and begrudging doing any kind of qualification except knowing what ‘Dubstep’ is or what WYP stands for in txt speak just alienates the person you’re trying to change the mind of and makes the world of the ‘young people’ even more distant. This I believe is not the desired effect.

In short. This made me so angry I really can’t yet fashion a proper argument. Can you?!
