Assume: makes an ASS of U and ME

I am subjected to a constant barrage of "you don't know this... because you're too young" or "you wouldn't understand because you're too young". How would you know if I know something or not? Are you inside my brain, have you experienced my life? I think not. 
Newsflash people: I am a highly intelligent individual who DOES understand quite a bit for my age. MORE than most people in my generation.... I am so tired of people assuming I don't know things, or shouldn't have experiences because I'm too young. I'm sick of *elder relations* being so condescending and insulting my intelligence. My parents were never like that so maybe I have to just adjust and deal? But I don't know how much longer I can handle it before I just snap. I hope I'm never that judgmental when I get older. Is this how it will be until I'm of the age to condescend?
