Why are adult jokes more brutal than kid jokes?

My family was picking on me on my birthday but I’m only 18. I don’t mind joking but it’s exhausting and it’s tiring to me.
My told my sister that dad called me old woman but she said, “You know how dad is. He just picks on people for fun. You should know. You’re been around sarcasm and teasing. Stop tripping and just laughed it off.”

Adults use humor to vent internalized emotions. Usually negative ones.
[@695370,Straylight] Why?
[@1132160,SweetiePieLay] Because humor makes it socially acceptable. 🤷‍♀️
[@695370,Straylight] That doesn’t make sense. I got roasted on my 18th birthday. 😭

Family members don’t have anything to lose by mean jokes. There is no price to pay.
Kids can be bullies also but they aren’t as oppressing because they don’t have as much power over you.
[@3118,Pfuzylogic] What do you mean?
