I Am Against Ageism

For anyone who doesn't like to be discrimated against because of their age 165 People

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
