What makes people consider those 60 years old and over finished and washed up?


Why this hatred of older people in our society? Don't people realize that age is just a number and that each day regardless of age is a new beginning, never the end? Someone can write a hub on this!

    EXACTLY, old people are often demonized in our youth oriented society. Being young is akin to being a god/goddess. Youth=beauty, strength, femininity, masculinity, virility, smarts, & other positive characteristics while being old= senility etc.
