17. I agree.. Look at the adulation given to the inane
sports heroes
bubbleheaded, but voluptuous "singing Barbies"
Nascar
wrestling
Crass, vulgar tv programming
sports metaphors in EVERY facet of life

In the 60's the teens were catered to because we were a burgeoning class of new consumers, and the marketeers just never lets ANYONE "grow up".. We are continually marketed to as if we were ALL 16.. Our behavior proves them right..
