Menopause, Ageism, and Anger

Posted , 4 users are following.

Men, and I think maybe younger people in general, seem threatened by a confident older woman. It's almost as if society dictates that we are supposed to feel somehow meek, timid and beaten-down because we are no longer 30-year old eye candy. I have so much more to offer as a person than I did then.

Sadly, there are very few enlightened men who seem to get that. Perhaps wanting a younger woman is simple biology, and can't be changed...

I'm not even single right now and I see this...

Women are afraid to tap into their anger, period. I can't control mine right now and while it's alienating to others, it also feels liberating.

Perhaps this is just the emotional junk we go through trying to face aging and get to the other side of menopause, whatever that is... Being a woman may be hard, but I would sure never want to be a man 😃

    I wouldn't want to be a man either. I don't think they age well and are often 'needy' as they get older. The ones that I have talked with are very geniune and grateful to have an honest discussion about any topic. I also think some like the older confident woman who knows what she wants.. but then yes some are threatened by that as well. All types 'out there' that for sure.
