    Why Are We So Shocked That Keanu Is Dating Someone Age Appropriate?

    https://www.msn.com/en-ca/entertainm...cid=spartandhp

    Hamster logic article.

    "Mostly because we view aging men and women differently

    Embedded in this analysis of Reeves and Grant’s relationship—and the validity of it—is the long-held bias some people seem to have when it comes to aging. That is mainly: As they get older, men become silver foxes and women become old hags. I just call it like I see it.No[FONT="Segoe UI","Segoe WP",Arial,Sans-Serif],
    women don’t actually become hags (that’s very rude), but if you take a look at how we talk about aging and gender—especially when it comes to celebrities—it becomes *very* apparent that there’s a discrepancy. While men like Clooney are heralded for going grey and looking sexy as a silver fox, actresses are applauded for
    “gracefully” aging,
    a.k.a. defying the natural aging process and not really looking like they’re aging at all. In a September interview with
    InStyle
    , Jennifer Aniston talked about turning 50 and the weirdness around aging. “I feel physically incredible,” the actress said of her birthday. “So it’s weird that it’s all of a sudden getting telegraphed in a way that’s like, ‘You look amazing for your age.’ I think we need to establish some etiquette around that dialogue and verbiage.”
    [/FONT]
    But it’s some serious BS

    Because all it really does is reinforce ageism, specifically against women. Not to mention the fact that men continuously making dating much-younger women their “thing” ( *ahem* Clooney, DiCaprio and Quaid *ahem*) and our shock when their peers step outside this norm, only further reinforces the very lame idea that women have an expiry date while men get better with age. Or that women’s desirability, intelligence and sexual desire doesn’t matter past a certain age. Which is extremely untrue. First of all, women are amazing and rule the world. And second of all, think of all the badass women you know who are continually thriving and getting better as they grow wiser, in both your personal life and in your fave films."



    An escort is a woman you occasionally financially support only when she has sex with you.

    A date is a woman you occasionally financially support in the hope she will have sex with you.

    A wife is a woman you constantly financially support even when she is not having sex with you.

    An ex-wife is a woman you constantly financially support with alimony so she can have sex......with someone else.

    As you said, hamster logic, so I did not bother to read it. I don’t have to, because I know what the hamster says. The same thing, over and over. What women want = good; everything else = bad. The details are irrelevant.

    So the hamster will never acknowledge that it takes two to tango. When older men are with young women, well, then young women are with older men. Not because they are forced to, but because they prefer to.



    Oh, no, that would place some responsibility on women!
    Oh, no, it would give away their real preferences!
    Oh, no, aging women are just hurt because they cannot compete with young women!
    Oh, no, men of their own age were supposed to be kept in reserve for them for future use!
    Quick, woman the harpoons! Demonize men!
    (And pet a few of those that behave in accordance with female expectations!)

    “Age appropriate.” More bullshit thrown in your face.

    Sounds like Aniston is saying she doesn't like hearing the truth so there needs to be a law prohibiting it. At least that's the implication.

    Some places already have laws that make certain nouns and adjectives illegal. Maybe she should move there, if she doesn't live there already. She'd have an easier go of things.

    It was at this stage I had to stop reading as I was in danger of losing my lunch.

    I don't know any women that have grown 'wiser' with age, just more cunning with their manipulations.

    As to the 'fave films' mentioned, WTF? These are people that are so expert in the art of lying that they get paid for it, and well paid at that, they are playing a role and it has absolutely nothing to do with who they are. Why would anyone take these people seriously?

    Age doesn't matter.

    Race doesn't matter.

    They're all women, I don't have the inclination or desire to be bothered with them, when I did, I SUFFERED!

    Quite the contrary, take them seriously. Take them at their words. So the next time some “badass” woman complains about men not mentoring her, tell her to connect to her inner Rey, and just know the solution to the problem at hand. Do this every time women need any help. You can do it, you go, girls!

    I love how they make a huge deal out of how men prefer younger women, like it's some horrible sexist thing anytime a man has some preference or standards. Yet they completely ignore the fact that women have preferences too, such as a preference for rich and famous men. In fact, the last article I saw that even addressed this subject was about how "broke" men were hurting women's marriage prospects. So basically when women have preferences, it is empowering and men need to step up or they're not good enough. When men have standards, it's evil and sexist.

    All their whining and complaining will never change men's preferences. Men will always prefer women who are young, feminine, attractive, and not overweight. Women certainly capitalize on this when they are young and hot, going after only the highest status men and rejecting the more normal guys who are realistically near their SMV. But when they are old and bitter, after they hit the wall and not even the "average" guys want them anymore, THEN they want to cry and complain about men's standards.

    Stupid hypocritical bitches.

    I rather enjoy the lamentations whenever one hits 50. They know they're like a pack of half-rotted bait shrimp at that point.
