Love your blog and think you are a wise young man,
but this is not funny.
Could you do a post about the funny stereotypes of young gay men to balance it? Age is not respected in our society,it is ugly or funny.
At 57 I qualify for some of those senior discounts, but none of these apply to me, to my 87 year old dad, yes, and maybe I would guilty giggle about that.
Age is a particular issue for gay men. The bravest man I know came out to his wife and kids at 76! They accepted him and he was fortunate to have a loving relationship with a younger man 64 cancer took him at 82.
None of these applied to him either.

DENIS: THANK YOU for this comment; I really appreciate you concern.

You know, at 22, this is something I am not aware of. . .way too many of us are unaware, too. "Age" has become an issue, with emphasis on "being" young, "looking" young, "dressing" young and on and on.

I am sorry this has upset you. I think this is an area we ought to post about.

Please, if there are readers who have feelings/reactions about this, would you please share your ideas with us. . .

Again, Denis, I need to learn/know about this age issue and the sensitivity to it. I looked over the list again and see how these things are the "burdens" of some seniors. . . .and some seniors see all these with a great sense of humor also. . .

Let's hear from some of our readers about this.

Thanks. Justin

Well, I'm 57 (for another day at least, sob!) and I found it funny.

No doubt Denis had his tongue in his cheek.

I found it funny because that it where we are all heading, if we are both lucky and unlucky enough, ha!

Yes, age is an issue.
It is one of those "damned if you do and damned if you don't" things.
A two edged sword...

It is interesting to contemplate why age is more of an issue for gay men.
I'd like to hear other's thoughts on this.

My thoughts are that it is obvious.
Age is important for all men who are searching for a new parnter later in life, but for gay men it seems to be much harder.

For older straights it is much easlier to find an available partner, but for older gays the task is so much more difficult.
We just don't tend to "put ourselves out there" when we get older. Hell, we aint attractive any more, it's embarrasing!

Well, it is in my experience, so much so that I gave up "the quest" long ago, not that I don't keep an eye out.

But to waste my time actively searching and sorting the wheat from the chaff, hell, I've got better things to do with my life!.....there are always good pics to "dream over" on the web, hee hee!
And there are great people like you guys to "talk to"!!!

Yes, a bit of harmless humor is fine by me. If I'm gonna take the mickey out of young whippersnappers like JustinO then it's only fair they can take a shot at me.

I had a friend (now deceased) almost 40 years my junior who called me 'Fossil'. One time I asked him why he chose me to be such a close friend and he began his answer with, "Well, I never thought I'd be interested in archeology..."

I think it's important not to take ourselves too seriously.

As you know we have our great-grandparents at 94 and 90 staying with us, and also my grandparents at 71 and 70. I took the liberty of printing off a copy of these, adn showed it to my great-grandfather, and he laughed long and enjoyed them a lot. THEN he said how about GTGVW.

"Got to go, Viagra working"
At that point Nanie laughed and said "Really? Goodness Edmund, you'll wear a girl out at this rate!" Then she threw a pillow at him.

I think one of the most difficult things for aging persons whether they are gay or straight is to gradually have to give up doing things they've always enjoyed. We were so lucky when Pops gave up driving, and we didn't have to ask him to do so. He realized he wasn't capable any longer. They don't travel or go on cruises anymore, and I know they miss those.

They move very deliberately and carefully, stepping over the edges of carpets and when nanie rises from being seated, I noticed she pauses and gets her balance before she moves.

I think having grown up with older persons close to us has given my brothers and me a great appreciation for age.
