Re: Wrong options...

Agree. "Consent" is just a fig leaf to make it look like there is some control.

Even if we ignore those parents who just don't care, many/most of the caring parents don't have the information needed to make an informed choice, and are under pressure from both their kids ("all my buddies use it"), the society ("keep up with the times weirdo"), and indeed often from clueless education structures ("that's what we use and that's final").

But then there is money to be made, future suckers consumers to be trained educated, so concerns are put aside. Money doesn't just talk, it also lubricates...
