Real-life teen who also plays a teen on television Maisie Williams is representing all teens in a landmark case about who knows shit. Because, according to her brief, adults don’t know a damn crumb about squat.

In an interview with Dazed, Williams presents her case. “People think we’re fucking stupid and we don’t know anything about anything. It’s really degrading,” she said. “I get a lot of adults who are like, ‘You don’t know shit,’ and it’s like, ‘You don’t know shit. You have no idea what it’s like to be 17 years old.’”

Adults will actually tell you that you don’t know shit, but the fact that they even say that shit shows that they don’t know shit. It’s a whole paradox about who knows shit and who doesn’t know shit, but trust me, you know your shit, you’re seven-fucking-teen. That’s what you know shit about, and everyone can step off your neck about that. The defense RESTS ITS CASE. Courtroom is adjourned.
