Michael, I agree with your balanced view. I’m 18. my husband is 43. Our relationship is more happy and functional than most I know. I grew up very quickly due to a bad home life, and I was ready for stability and marriage. This young woman is a product of moral decline in society. The older man’s intentions don’t seem pure considering her overly sexified looks. I think he saw a vulnerable, hot, sex “thing”.I pity her. These are my first impressions/judgements. She may be very mature like I was at sixteen (if that’s her actual age) and may have reasons for her manner of dress. No one knows. We don’t know them. People judge my husband’s love for me. It’s a horrible feeling to be looked down upon. I don’t know if ageism is really comparable to racism and sexism, all I know is, is that it hurts. I just want to be happy with my husband, no one should attack us for that. Much in the same way no one should attack them, because we are all judging and criticising, NO ONE KNOWS THEM. People are different at different ages. AGE IS A MENTAL STATE, NOT A NUMBER. thanks ya’ll.
