Why can't a 17 yearold download rated M?

I'm 17 years old, born 1993, and for some idiotic reason I can't seem to download Rated M which is 17 and up.

All I am trying to do is get a few game demos and buy one game off Xbox market place, and every time it goes "This account is not permitted to download content with this rating" or something like that when I try to do it off both my console and off Xbox.com. I can go into the store with info that I am 17 and buy the game, but I can't get the demo or a game only available to xbox off the market place. Is there anyway to fix this, or something?
