This guy wins.
I disagree with his innocuous statement so I'm just gonna say that he is ugly and stupid and creepy and he smells bad, etc. Come on, guys. Make ready the torches & pitchforks. Let's burn this customer at the stake.
I'm not entirely sure, but I interpret this to mean that some people 'grow out of childish things' when they become an 'adult', and then a few years later they become actually mature enough to recognise that being an 'adult' doesn't make them too old for childish things.Like, I did away with my Lego collection when I quote unquote 'grew up', then started collecting it again when I stopped trying so hard to be an adult, which was genuinely mature.
When I was little my parents paid for them. When I started out on my own I had more important things, like rent, to spend money on. Now I've finally reached a point where I can afford to buy my own comics and toys. I can finally stop pretending to be "too mature" for them to make going without seem easier.
Nope, read it twice and it still doesn't make sense. Except as sarcasm.I'd find it easier to 'put away childish things, including the fear of childishness', if most comics writing wasn't pants-on-head stupid and banal. That's more of an issue than strict childishness, IMO.
You need to read yourself some different comics, son
