where they're having a discussion about aborting disabled fetuses. i was really shocked by some of the views. all these young people spouting off about severely disabled people having lives not worth living. there are about three people sticking up for the disabled. i'm horrified, what are kids being taught these days about their disabled brothers and sisters? check it out http://forumsftw.com/viewtopi

Although I feel privileged that you've found my site interesting enough to promote for me (free,) the point you make is a bad one.
Firstly, your summary is very very basic, and indeed poor, the term "not worth living," is an implicated phrase, not one directly coined by anyone there.

Secondly, FFTW is an open-minded community of very intelligent young people, the fact that we challenge ourselves with difficult debates is a credit to our level of intellect.

You may be horrified, but I encourage freedom of speech, and querying "what kids are being taught these days," by reading one thread, which was a forum of their opinions, is a credit to your ignorance.

In modern society, young people face criticism no matter what they do. I've created a place where people challenge themselves and engage with their peers on a number of very important issues, as well as using the forum as an online community.

Unfortunately, many other young people see fit to hang about on the streets, annoying/intimidating people getting into crime, and being a general nuisance.

The group of young people on my site are a credit to our generation, and many of them will go very far.

Sure, I don't agree with all of their views, but I think that a bland criticism of our generation is wrong, and very very stupid.

Finally, I'm not sure how old you are, but "lonefather" suggests you were too old to be viewing my teenage forum anyway. if not, then please feel free to join and join in the debate, rather than launching faceless criticism from afar.

This may be an overly long response, but if you had a problem with it, then there are far more mature ways of addressing it.
