A friend of mine recently mentioned that Sandra Bullock “is good looking for an older person.” I laughed at the thought that she’s considered old because I wouldn’t say so. And yes, she does look damn good. Why do people have to include age in a comment like that at all? When one looks at a picture of a beautiful woman why can’t they think, “wow, that’s a beautiful woman” as opposed to “she looks really good for her age“?
A lot of people are judged by their age, good or bad. Someone may think I’m stupid because I’m 25 and must not know much about life. Sure, I can quote any Adam Sandler movie and will always remember all of ‘N Sync’s lyrics. So what? I also enjoy The Beatles, Elvis Presley, and Audrey Hepburn movies. Assuming a younger person is stupid is as silly as assuming any older person is smart. There are geniuses and idiots in all age groups, I’m sure most can attest to that.
Even in our kink there can be some division. I’ve seen various TNG groups strictly for people ages 18-30. Any private group is free to make their own rules of course, but why the division? When one turns 31 are they ready to just buy their burial plot already? I suppose I could start a group strictly for 25 year old spankos but it probably wouldn’t be that big and therefore not a lot of fun.
I admit, I’ve thought that way before. If you had asked me when I was 16 about being 30, my reply would’ve been “oh my god, that’s sooo old.” Lol. Fortunately I’ve matured since then and really don’t care anymore. Coming out into the spanking scene opened my eyes to a whole new world and a chance to associate with all types of people that I wouldn’t otherwise know. And I’m very thankful for that as I’ve created many wonderful friendships and can’t imagine my life without all these people in it. I think there is always something to learn from a person, no matter their age. That’s one thing I’ve always loved about the spanking scene, the variety of people in it. We come from all different backgrounds, all ages, but we have this common thread that brings us all together. And that is a wonderful thing.
