Depression, substance abuse, family violence, or a lifetime of pain; whereas all the youth enjoys using words that their elders find offensive, and behaviour being modelled since you're raised.
I "would like to hear what study you based this statement on" (I won't go into detail about how making that demand of everyone one responds to is generally indicative of trollish behaviour).
I'd also like you to define what you believe to be the causes of most instances of "Depression" and many of "substance abuse".

I think you'll find that the two main causes are those given in my posting (I simply expressed them in a way that avoids overly emotional connotations), so "firmly disagreeing" with those statements equally firmly disagrees with your own.

And that's not to mention that "family violence" falls very, very clearly under the heading of "being forced by others to behave how one does not want to behave."

we can prevent the messy ones and give those who would a dignified end. Still, that's not allowed
In whatever (I will resist saying "backward or fanatically religious") place you inhabit, that may be the case, but it is perfectly legal here -- I personally know two people with one parent each who has felt compelled to follow that route.

I was not in a position to discuss their decision with either of them -- but discuss it is all I would have done; I most certainly would not have argued against it.

And I think that it is entirely clear that I was talking of being ostracised by peers, on- and off-line.  Parents rarely ostracise their children for a psychologically harmful length of time.

But how about we have a CP New Year's resolution not to discuss such bloody miserable topics in a forum "for those who code"?  Discussions of such matters between non-experts (i.e. those of "a little learning") are rarely useful or constructive.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
