I am not the same person I was at 17 yrs old -Don't judge me for what I did when I was a teenager

I've heard this argument so many times this week - even from well meaning democrats-
Yes, I did some crazy things at that age - I was an immature little punk myself. Ran with a tough crowd. The difference is, I own it I've learned from my mistakes and growing pains. I am not still lying about it and pretending it never happened. I don't want to be judged today for the things that I did all those years ago.

However, if someone from my past brought up something that I did and I lied about it and said it never happened, then I should be judged for it. I can't pretend to be this changed person if I am lying about the awful things that I did even if I am no longer doing them.

Point is, no matter how changed you claim to be today, if you are lying about your past, when confronted and not owning what you did. Then you can't claim to be a changed person.

2. I did some dumb - really dumb - things as a 17 year-old.

However, I never once put my hand over a girl's mouth as I tugged on her clothing.

3. This, there's stupid, there's even stupid criminal acts like shoplifting or even getting into fights

 

Then there's attempted rape.

4. I didn't try to rape anyone as a teen or after.

There are just some things that you don't do at any age.
