The Juvenists

June 13, 2013 at 11:17 AM

Today’s blog gives you the answers to last week’s quiz – ‘Am I a Juvenist?’ To speed things up for you, it’s only one click away.


The Juvenists Blog

13 June 2013

 Scoring the Juvenist quiz:

 For Qs 1 – 6:               Never (3 points), Sometimes (2) and Always (1).

For Qs 7-10:                Always (3 points), Sometimes (2) and Never (1).

 A score of 30 means you’re an Ace! A score of 20 means you’re getting there and a score of 10 means you may need to do some serious rethinking if you aim to be a juvenist.

Some of these questions will be discussed in the following weeks.

So what is a juvenist?

The terms ‘juvenist’ and ‘juvenism’ have been coined as a corollary to feminism.

A juvenist is defined as someone who advocates for the rights and needs of marginalised children, at times in the face of conflicting adult interests, including their own.
