We don't have events like those you were talking of, as far as I know, however the lack of regulation in your country is hurting the 'movement.'   Statistics on uptake by youth in your country are being used as an argument against legalizing vaporizing in New Zealand and Australia.  So you desperately NEED regulation, nation wide.  Regulation is needed to make sure vape liquid is safe, regulation is needed to make sure devices are safe, and regulation is needed to make certain young non smokers are not encouraged to vape.

What doctors and teachers call "Klinefelters' syndrome," was originally known as "Seminiferous Tubule Dysgenesis" and it was diagnosed by biopsy of the testes.  But since STD is so hard to say it was abbreviated to "Klinefelters' syndrome."  Then in 1959 when 1 man who had KS had his chromosomes counted, and he alone was found to be XXY, the karyotype was incorrectly called KS, or the terms were used interchangeably as if they were the same, but they are not.

Klinefelters' syndrome is a specific set of symptoms found in SOME XXY men.  As most XXY men are never diagnosed at all, we can't say for certain how common KS actually is.  But we can say with some degree of accuracy, that the XXY karyotype is found between 1:500 to 1:1000 live male births. It will never be an exact number as XXY is a random event.  

I was diagnosed with KS in 1976.  I have many videos on YouTube about all manner of aspects of being XXY, and being treated for KS.

Jacobs syndrome doesn't exist in the minds of those with the karyotype, or their parents,  they're not taught it, so why teach it?  Turners and Downs are prevalent from birth and those people with a chromosome missing do have Turners syndrome, also those people at birth with an additional autosome, do have Downs, but males born XXY do not have Klinefelters syndrome, that syndrome does not manifest until after the onset of puberty. And females with the XXY karyotype don't have any syndrome at all, to the best of my knowledge.

My daughter moved in with me.  I've never had to compete for razors before.  I hopped in the shower got my razor, and arggggh!  She's been using it, and it was blunt!  Tearing my facial hair out!  So I use clippers initially then my wet/dry philips in the shower, and those razors live in my bedroom. :D

So, why aren't all videos on vaping automatically age restricted, since under 18 year olds are not supposed to be vaping anyway, why do they need to see what adult ex smokers can see?

Well wasn't that interesting.  Nice inclusion with the man and children.  By the way if that boy had wider hips, his pants wouldn't fit.  The possible wider hips scenario can only come about after the onset of puberty, and he was nowhere near puberty. So I say 'can only' as just because a symptom has been identified doesn't mean it will be seen in any individual.

Now this next information is going to blow your mind, so sit down a take a deep breath.  Not only males can be XXY.  If you were to do a search of medical websites you will find occasions where females are XXY too.  They are very rare.  Now it's going to get complicated.  Your teacher needs to update their knowledge, and teach it.  It is not the presence of additional X material that causes variation of difficulties found, but the distribution of the activated X from each parent.  Everybody with more than 1 X only has 1 X activated in each cell, which of course means all females too.

But females don't normally have educational and fertility issues simply by having 2 X's.  They would if they had clumps of cells that had the X from one parent activated.  Females have what is called 'Random X Inactivation" and as there are only 2 X's that means roughly 50% of the X's from each parent are activated.

XXY males have "Skewed X Inactivation" where millions of cells in clumps are activated from just one parent, and depending on where those cells are, will determine how severely each individual XXY male is affected.  Get it?

All these devices are illegal to advertise in New Zealand.  They're not allowed to be sold to people under 18.   Our anti smoking advertising says it's the nicotine that gets people addicted to smoking, but does us no harm.

I haven't seen a lot of advertisement for vaping, as it's done by brick and mortar stores. If anything, I'll see a banner advertising a new vape shop is opening. Most, if not all, the adverts I see are inside vape shops.

I have to tell you, you're not correct.  Absolutes do not exist in medicine.  Just because someone has any syndrome does not absolutely mean individual symptoms associated with that syndrome will be present.  As for children under the age of puberty with KS, it is impossible, but never mind that's what you're taught.  I can find you someone on YouTube right now who has none of the symptoms you describe and he has a great academic record.  So how can it be that things you say a child will have, are not seen at any time in this man?  Why does his personal account not agree with your absolute determination?

hehehhehe more X's more problems, true, however I am making a link between severity of symptoms with mosaic forms, through observation.  That it is the prevalence of additional chromosomes activated from the same parent, that bring about varying forms of disability, not merely the presence of additional chromosomes. So XY/XXY's can be just as severely affected as XXY's in educational and social fields of interest.  It has been shown that XXY males have skewed X inactivation.
