    Invisible woman syndrome can make aging hard

    From the brilliant minds of the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape comes, um, 'Ignore old hags rape' I guess

    https://www.pcar.org/blog/invisible-...ake-aging-hard


    Aging isn’t easy on anyone, but there is a well-known social phenomenon called Invisible Woman Syndrome that can make it particularly hard on women. The feeling of not being seen is often acutely felt by middle-age women. At the half century mark, men are typically viewed as being at the zenith of their professional and personal lives, often leading organizations and companies and are viewed as accomplished and experienced. This is in contrast to women whose main stock in trade is assumed to be their physical appearance, which we’re sold and told should be youthful and appealing to the male gaze.


    A survey that studied 2,000 women revealed that by the time they reach the age of 51, many women believed they had become invisible to men


    LOL! Try 31 you old bag.

    From the article:

    And for a moment that compliment made me feel good about myself again, which then made me mad.
    Then? Right then? As opposed to later? Is it any wonder women are ignored? They turn a compliment into something negative. Just don't bother complimenting them.


    At this intersection of middle age, sexism and ageism are parallel roads that many suggest disproportionately impact women.
    This is another attempt to wring victim status for women out of a drying rag.


    “Comparison is an act of violence against the self.”
    Not an act of violence, not literally or physically or even figuratively speaking. These are the overstatements that women pass around and foster among themselves. As if calling it an act of violence is what it takes to get women to pay attention to the point being made. I've said it before, the vocabulary of women is broken, and they hold men accountable to their exaggerations. Women are their own saboteurs.
    The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why. - Mark Twain

    The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.
    - Henry David Thoreau

    There are 10 types of people in the world - those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    And yet, not one acknowledgement of the invisible 80% of men. Laydeez, time for some introspection, if you are capable of it. Remember your twenties and all the guys you friend zoned? Did you ever consider them men or merely objects of utility? That burning sensation you are feeling is a thing called karma. Get used to it.

    Every woman gets a bite of the cherry before she ages and becomes ignored. A man is either hot and desirable his whole life, or is one of the invisible 80% from adolescence to old age.

    Open letter to "invisible" 50 year old women:

    HAHAHAHA. Now you know how it feels to be an 80% man! We've felt this invisibility all of our lives. Too bad you felt ENTITLED to that male attention. Should have CHOSEN BETTER - maybe now you wouldn't be a " intelligent, strong and empowered" woman who's destined to be alone with cats. You really thought that liberal arts degree is what made men want to be around you? The haughty attitude? Blathering on with your socialist platitudes that your gender studies professors taught you? Thinking you were above men with twice your intelligence and business savvy because you were "degreed" and they were not?

    Listen, you insufferable narcissitic cunt: You're alone because of YOU. Not because of Patriarchy. Not because men are mean. You're alone because you went "all in" on looks and maybe should have developed the kind of personality that people would want to be around.
    - Feminism is Cancer.
    - Where have all the good men gone? Away. Far far away... from you.
    - NAWALT? Maybe, but EWALT means Russian Roulette is a much safer bet...

    I held my nose, prepared a barf bag just in case, and read the whole post at PCAR. What a truckload of whiny, self-absorbed drivel. But, no surprise -- look at PCAR's graphic. A dead giveaway that nothing of value's going to come out of the time you spend (waste) there. Preferably less than eight miserable years.

    Oh yeah, and near the end of the piece, the obligatory redefinition (or should I say hijacking) of the word "violence," in a vain attempt to force an association between true physical violence and mere observation. "Violence" is now being used to describe anything that puts a female at risk of introspection -- anything that might even suggest an uncomfortable fact or a truth.

    Hey creampuffs, you want violence? Go defend yourself against an attacker and then come back and let me know if you've changed your mind about how you choose your words.

    Assholes...

    Redefining words is their favorite hobby these days... Sexist (now men only), racist (now white people only), assault & violence as described above... And of course all the words they just make up - how many pronouns are there now?

    Did you guys notice that part about the number 49? She inadvertently confirmed Gynocentrism, in that society gives *utterly no shits* about anyone who isn't capable of gestating a fetus.. once The Wall declares a woman non-viable from a reproductive sense, no-one is interested, including feminists...

    Just thought that was interesting...

    Changing the definition of words is a subtle way to control thoughts without having to make a convincing argument. Sexism, racism, ageism, weightism, are all just made up words with a very fuzzy definitions (on purpose ) used to manipulate people. As George Orwell pointed out, control the vocabulary and you control thoughts.

    Re: Invisible woman syndrome can make aging hard

    A man I had never met told me I was beautiful and congratulated my husband on marrying so well. And for a moment that compliment made me feel good about myself again, which then made me mad.
    1) Of course, a compliment angered her. No winning.

    At the half century mark, men are typically viewed as being at the zenith of their professional and personal lives, often leading organizations and companies and are viewed as accomplished and experienced.
    2) She doesn't live in MY world. At the half century mark, headhunters would start to 'cool off' mid way thru the interview, although I had extensive experience in building restoration. It didn't matter. Again, because she says it, & believes it, it MUST be fact. Wild.

    there is an overwhelming feeling of being invisible and irrelevant for many women over 50.
    3) Join the club. Oh yeah, I have people lining up to get my autograph due to my wit, astonishing good looks, & influence. Naturally feminists are the only ones on the planet experiencing this terrible injustice of being judged by age & looks, or lack of them.
    As for me, I just put everything I had back into 1 concentrated area: me, & hired myself. I wasn't even sure it would work, just relax, be you & take your best shot. I wasn't winning any beauty contests at this point.


    *Madeleine Albright became Ambassador to the UN at 56 or 57. & She wasn't just another pretty face. (Not a fan, or even agreeing with her politics, whatever they may be, just stating an example of a woman who worked thru that age thing.)

    So much easier to pigeon-hole and shame than have a reasoned debate. Oh, you're not going into your hole and you feel no shame? Let me just scream in your face for an hour, that'll fix you. If that doesn't work, I'll just cry, and a shining White Knight will come to my rescue!

    Okay...you are invisible...great. Welcome to the club men have been at for most of their lives.

    So what are you going to do about it? Cultivate a genuine feminine personality or be generous to other with little precious time left on earth? Orrrrrrrrr

    You are just going to stay with your perma scowl and complain to retail associates every time you go to shop your favorite wines and cat food.

    Decisions, decisions...

    These cunts are so ridiculous. When they are not busy demonizing normal masculine behavior and trying to make "stare rape" and "street harassment" a crime with serious legal repercussions, they are complaining that men no longer want to look at them and compliment them. I mean, the cognitive dissonance is just absolutely astounding.
