    It annoys me so much

    Just because we're young doesn't mean our

    opinions are unimportant. Let us be diplomatic and kindly correct us if we are wrong, but please hear us out too. After all, we are the future of the nations.

    It's Just Kind of Ridiculous...

    i can't say how many times people use patronizing phrases that amount to a pat on the head as if someone is saying to you, "there there little child, it's so cute that you still care about the world"... or "that you think about silly things like inequality...

    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...

    Ageism only exist against the elderly?
