Age Gates – A Very Stupid Web Design Element

What’s an age gate?

They’re those stupid intermediary pages that make you input your date of birth to prove you are older than 18.

Who is this stopping?

Who is this stopping?

WHO IS THIS STOPPING!!!

There are only two kinds of people who are stopped by this:

  • People who can’t speak English and haven’t figured out how to use Google Translate
  • Children who will eventually earn Darwin Awards

Age gates are a useless and annoying waste of time. We should banish them from the Internet.

That’s all.
