The 21 Challenge

The 21 Challenge

Do you know what a 21 year old looks like? Sometimes an avatar created by a younger user is told they look too young, according to those who are older.

This group of people disagreed on the issue, due to generational differences of their perception of a woman in that age group. True, the thread had factors such as the sim owner being able to impose whatever rule they wanted on their land and who was allowed there. This, however, is not about the sim owner’s prerogative. It’s about how users in Second Life consider young adults and what they think they actually look like.

I think many times in Second Life, we disagree about what a young adult appears as. We all grew up during different decades, and our heyday has given us an implied bias. For me, the picture above is what I think someone who’s 21 can look like. She’s following an e-girl trend (though not all do), and is willing to try a lot of different wild trends because she’s got the money and freedom to do so. I, however, am a Millenial. Maybe you think differently about this than I do.

What do you think the answer is? Take a picture, post a blog, tag it on IHeartSL with “21Challenge”, and let’s see the results! I want to know the answers others come up with.

    Is that hair from Lamb still available somewhere? I looked at the store and didn’t see it, and not on the Flickr either.

      It might be retired by now, I know it was a gacha item. So check their gacha machines and see if it’s still there.
