22. Again: those are children

 

minors.

Not adults.

Maybe it is a technicality. But unless you plan on treating everyone as children for their entire lives you have to draw a line somewhere.

If you want to argue for shifting the age of majority from 18 to 19 or 20 or 21, fine. But there is some line at which you must declare someone an adults (barring severe mental disability) and allow them to do adult things.

And technically it would be "for rent". Like any voluntary exchange of labor.
