n. A predisposition towards adults (or a bias against children).
Adultism has been defined as "the power adults have over children". More narrowly, 'adultism is prejudice and accompanying systematic discrimination against young people'. On a more philosophical basis, the term has also been defined as "bias towards adults... and the social addiction to adults, including their ideas, activities, and attitudes."
Usage examples of "adultism".
My displays of adultism are minor legends wherever children congregate.
