If one may liken the age of the Philippine Freedom of Information bill to an old commercial, one can say that she is no longer a baby because she is now a lady. Had she been a true human being, she would have been one of the numerous addicts of the WTF generation (Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook). At 15 years of age, she would have already started dating and may even be a prime candidate for unwanted pregnancy or drug addiction. She would be smack in the middle of the arguments of extending Grade 6 to Grade 7, and the arguments on sex education as part of the school curriculum.
