Really nice photos. Interesting in considering the line between youth, adulthood pathology. What if there were two adults (any gender configuration between the two) doing with each other, what the two kids are doing and having equal amounts of fun doing it? What we base pathology on doesn’t always seem objective, although the DSM would argue otherwise. Who writes the DSM?
People not only in control of how society views itself and others, but people who decide who gets judged and who doesn’t. A very powerful position to be in.
Fuck’em – only a few know what’s going on. The rest misunderstand or are undereducated or just plain stupid – in business to make a buck. But children rarely show the symptoms of the major illnesses. And doctors almost always get it wrong when diagnosing children. – John
But I know exactly what you are saying. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were adults they would be arrested and detained and interviewed by a cop psychologist.
