    But It Does Go Both Ways You Know

    To be prrrretty honest, the whol 'age' concept in general SUCKS, why should age limit ANYTHING, seriously theres like a 50 year old and the kickboxing academy and this club is mostly people in their 20s but this guy seems to have no joints at all with what he can do with his body...

    Pffft

    I can honestly say I am discriminated very often, and its all because of my age, yes I am 14 but i don't want to be treated any different just because I am younger. I don't really get on with people my age I like to think I'm much maturer. I hate immature people and people...

    The 'cool' Older Generation.

    It gets quite tiring living in a world where much attention is brought to those from the younger generation and this leads to quite alot of neglect from those that are older, its like once you hit a certain age, you are no longer important and have little to offer which of...

    Oaps Are Not Stupid!

    I was very angry last week when I was a victim of ageism.  Because of my health I have just moved into a lovely sheltered flat in Erskine.  I wasn't quite sure how to set up my FreeSat TV box.  To save there being loads of satellite dishes on every flat, several flats share a...

    Forum Encounter - So there's this one jerk on

    a forum I like to make jokes about and he says that kids only want dreamy boys/hot girls who are about their age. Which is wrong. I'm sorry but what is wrong with people over the age of 30 onwards? In particular what is wrong with people who are 40, 50, 60 or 70 years of...

    Ageism only exist against the elderly?

    False! it exist against everyone!! A lot of us people think that ageism only exist against old people. But this is a myth, it also exist against the youngsters even more and we're probably not aware that we're practicing this everyday. For instance if a child made a mistake, we...

    It annoys me so much

    when people see age gaps as such an issue like I will be with who ever I want regardless of our difference in age and I also think that interfering parents who would call the police and press rape charges against a minor's older partner are just ignorant and sometimes very...

    I've been raped several times. Nothing pleasurable about it (even if the body reacts). Keep in mind that it's still forcing someone to do participate against their will.
