Which is it?
Only your same-age friends are enjoying this crassness?
Or you have parents, grandparents, others there too?

If it is just you and your same-age friends, go ahead and trash it up!
If you have others whom you voluntarily friended and/or accepted the friend-request of, don't b*tch and moan that they just don't get your infinite coolness and openmindedness.

Why is the no middle ground?
And why do you just assume that since I don't always want to have to be PG rated that I am crass?

Seriously?
I make jokes and its not orange ya glad I didn't say banana as the punch line.

Like last night I quoted a convo between my friends and I.
I was trying to stick my nose stud back in and without thinking, I said in frustration, I can't find the damn hole and my friend said back...that's what he said... it was pretty funny.

He also said something about taking his cousins out to which I replied, you go out with your cousins?

THIS is the kind of stuff I am talking about.

We're 18-24 years old, we're not going to talk about knitting and daisies.
Newsflash! I'm 46 and I don't talk about knitting and daisies.

The "that's what she said" stuff is usually done by the end of high school. After that it's not really funny.

I almost hope to hear from you when you are 35 or 40 and see how your view of "old people" has evolved.

Not saying older people talk about that.
What I am saying is were not going to always talk about PG subjects.

I don't get it...why can't your mom be your facebook friend?
Is this a bunch of 18 year-olds or something?

My mom can't be my facebook friend because she trash talks about me on her facebook page, her friends can no longer be on there because they make "past my bedtime" comments and my grandmother is still on there but certain things are blocked from her because I don't need anyone posting typical parental embarrassing things on my page. I am trying to get my life together as an adult and I don't need that kind of stuff being said to me, I don't like it therefore I don't accept it, and no where says I have to tolerate everything that is thrown my way, I can simply eliminate the issue.

Neither do people in their 40s.

I find your comments a little strange. I went back to school when I was 40. My classmates were between 18-22. I have a whole bunch of friends that are under 30. They are my friends. We talk about all sorts of things that adults talk about. Relationships, music, family, sex, random gossip, careers, etc...

We talk about all the things that ADULTS that are friends talk about. What do you think happens to you when you turn 40? All of a sudden all of your conversations revolve around your aches and pains? You forget what sex is? You DONT GET dirty jokes?

I do have to say that while I have seen many off color posts and many drunken photos none of my under 30 friends are nearly as immature as you. Nor do they think that they have to hide the fact that they drink, are sexually active, or enjoy dirty jokes from their little old lady friend.

The last "that's what she said" joke I heard was out of my 7th grader's mouth. My friends in their 20s post FUNNY dirty jokes.

Whatever you can't see my page, you don't know what I am talking about.
And yes, I do hide some alcohol and sexual related things from my mom and grandmother, they may know I am 22 and will have sex but they don't need to know everything.

This is an entirely valid reason and has nothing to do with her being old and not liking your posts.
