Of course a 16-year-old can have an as well-informed opinions as much as I can. All I'm saying is that very often they don't. I've too often seen people that age (usually boys, I know) only see things from one perspective. We have in Denmark this really left-wing political party. One of its front figures is a young woman, and you'd be surprised how many would vote for her 'because she's cool'. Luckily, they're not old enough to vote yet.
Another example is a political party that's rather nationalistic and wants a strict policy on immigrants. To a lot of the before mentioned youth, they're practically nazis. They simply look at a few issues and judge them on that.

I didn't mean to be condescending, Leah.
