adultism
 n.— «One specific “ism” that GLSEN takes great pains to address is “adultism,” which the guide defines as “behaviors and attitudes that adults are better than young people, and entitled to act upon them without their agreement.” “Adultism,” the guide tells students, “is characterized by “disrespect towards the intelligence, judgment, emotional life, leadership, or physical being of young people.”» —“Obama Appoints Pro-Gay Activist Who Promotes Pro-Gay Clubs in Public Schools to be ‘Safe Schools’ Czar” by Adam Brickley CNSNews.com (Alexandria, Virginia) June 18, 2009.
