Did I say anywhere that they shouldn't? 

No. Neither did @Mishelle.

I even agreed with you, they have the right to vote, end of. I'm just saying we need to let people acknowledge that the opinions of the baby boomer's are shitty, when you factor in that they will be dead in 15-30 years and won't need to deal with the fall out from this type of decision. Acknowledging it and commiserating about it isn't being negative.

It's a moot point.

Maybe to you. But people are allowed to be angry about it. Telling people not to talk 'negatively' about it is not conducive to anything, and is just offensive to all the people who are going to experience the negative ramifications of this decision.

Idk if I'm missing some kind of contrarian goggles or something, but I still have yet to see how someone could make the mental leap of me saying that I don't take the opinions of baby boomers as seriously as opinions of people from my generation into me saying they shouldn't be allowed to vote at all.

Not telling you to not be negative, be as angry as you want.

I'm saying that it's irrelevant and out of your control both before and after the vote was cast.

That's so weird, I vaguely remember a post where you tell someone not to be negative in this thread for calling out baby boomers...

I'm confused too. Apparently saying a certain age group of people are unable to vote thinking about the future legacy; the social and economical burden they are leaving for their children, grandchildren and beyond; the international connections that may be lost, put on hold, or heavily redesign, it equals to say they shouldn't be able to vote at all? I guess we both missed that very specific synonyms class, maybe because that day we were somewhere being overly dramatic about our own feelings on some issue that affects our lives. We should know better by now.

I'm curious, how reliable are ISIS claims? Somewhere in the back of my head says that ISIS is unusually and unfortunately reliable, though I cannot remember where I read that.

I haven't ready any official stats but they don't seem to be that reliable, they'll use any kind of turmoil to fear monger. But then again you never know.

As somebody born and raised in a Confucian society, it has been rather unsettling to see comments on the big social media platforms berating and wishing the death of their own grandparents. What a culture shock. Either way, congratulations to the brits who voted to leave. For everyone's sake, please don't fuck this up.

Well, I live far away (Yay, South America) from the UK, but from all my geography classes, I've always learned economic unions are stronger when countries are together, so I'm still trying to understand why people voted to leave. Really, I would love a bit of info from people who voted ~

I'm curious if people have reasons beyond immigration and whatnot.

South Americans unite! I honestly haven't been following Brexit, but the Government here mentioned that we'll probably be losing some funding they'd received from the EU through the UK.

Where I live there have been protests, people all uniting in the town centre and telling anyone who doesn't look British to "go home".

Ugh.

This referendum has empowered the bigots into believing that they are right. Scary times.

Is trump gonna build his wall for Britain now too? That's going a bit far over the line when you start holding protests telling others to go home...Plenty of nationalities that consider it home, maybe the bigots need to go.

I've always thought of Newcastle as a diverse city. We've always had the reputation as a friendly city too so I'm super annoyed at this! The bigots will feel justified now though, believing that the majority of out voters believe the same as them even though not all out voters are racist  :(

Only reason I have seen besides immigration is the NHS promise...that apparently all savings would be ploughed back into the NHS. which was taken back the day after the vote...honestly, people are rather naive if they actually believed it would happen anyway with the Tories determined to dismantle it...
