    Ageism Is Wrong!

     Ageism i thought wasn't really a big thing and didn't really happen much..until it happened to me and then i researched it and found actually a heck of a lot of people are discrimated against just because of their age. Some people won't even be friends with someone if they...

    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...
