One day at Walmart with the munchkin, I had taken him into the restroom to change him and there was a very young looking girl waiting for a toilet and when she saw Piratebabe, she said "Awww!" and rubbed her belly saying "I'm going to have a baby. Everyone thinks I'm so young to be having a baby but I'm not!
Thinking that, like me, she must be older than she looks, maybe early 20's and oft taken for a teen, I asked how old she was and she answered "Seventeen!" I looked at her and didn't say anything, thinking "How is that not young?" Heck, people told me I was young to start having babies when I told them I was 22!
Though truly I could understand a 17 year old getting defensive to the point that she defends before anyone accuses.
