Even if you're correct about who can or can not make good choices for
themselves, is it the govts role to decide?
I don't think so. It sounds like a prescription for the nanny state.
As I so noted exceptions can apply at anytime. But for the vast
majority - Oy Vey! 18 it should be regardless of race, creed, color,
sex, sexual preferences etc etc etc. Unless the persons can show
they are ready to be emancipated a whole heck of a lot earlier.
As I also asked generically of everyone what were you like as a
teenger??? Were you ready for early emancipation???

If a young person is willing and able to strike out on their
before the age of 18 -- as has historically, been the case with
individuals who went on to prosper and make great contributions to
society -- you wouldn't have the law prohibit this, would you? I'm
agreeing that someone who is a dependent of their parents or
should have to take the legal step of emancipating herself in
have full legal rights. I also think that the 18 years following
is a reasonable period for parents or guardians to be required by
to exercise their guardianship, unless the dependent person freely
decides to seek emancipation earlier.
