Ageism – The new form of discrimination

What to wear at what age ? A very important question, when it comes to choosing we want to wear.

Often as women we tend to choose fashion not only as per our choices & likes, but very much as per our age too. With the ever growing fight of Racism, there is one more battle we often fight is ageism. Wearing that Cartoon T Shirt in your 40’s, or a red lipstick in you 50’s or even a dull cream color top in our teens, always tends to divert some unwanted attention. We do not follow what our choices, we follow the old set choices of the society. Or should we say we follow old trends, trends which were followed in the yester-year, the choices our Grand Ma’s had, the way they believed it is suppose to be, the fashion then, which we made as norm or rule.

I remember peeping into the mirror as a young kid, with my mother wearing her favorite dark lipstick (slightly towards the red shade), as she grew older that went to Brown and then to the lightest possible color or No color for that matter. Each time I would tell her that she needs to wear the colors she earlier wore; her constant reply was she doesn’t like it anymore. Well, I am sure that’s not the case because she loves it when is sport a red lipstick, which clearly indicates, she has changed the choices just for the sake of the society. I only wonder why she would do that. Well the generation today has thankfully risen above all of these matters. But yes there is still somewhere the concept of ageism exists. Starting a new career at 40, going back to complete your academics at 30, Starting a NEW sport at 25, getting married at 50, all of these are still a strange thought to us, isn’t it ?

I read somewhere ‘there is no point stressing about life too much, nobody makes it alive anyways’. TRUE isn’t it?

Follow your heart, sport that cartoon T-shirt, wear those big oversized earrings, finish your academics whenever you want to, and switch careers or paths if you want to. It is your life.

But Why I chose to call ageism discrimination?

Yes it is, discrimination, every time you tell your parents they won’t  understand.

Every time you question someone in their 40’s about why they changed their career path.

Each time to you tell someone in their 30’s that they are late to marry.

Each time you pass a comment on someone stating, he / she is doing this at this age.

One shouldn’t ever forget that we all grow old with time and each year. The best way to treat a person is to treat him the way you expect to be treated at that age, or the way you would have preferred to be treated in your younger days.

There are so many things we stress about everyday & very few things make us happy. Why snatch that happiness from someone or yourself, just because someone else thought it should be that way.
