CopperKnob Posted July 26, 2022 Posted July 26, 2022 So You Want Us Because We're Older Woman I identify as a 30-year-old woman. It doesn't matter that I've lived 43yrs. I'm 30, and there is not a damn thing you can do to change that. I don't feel 43. I don't look 43, and I don't want to be 43. Referring to me as an "Older Woman" is not going to gain you entrance to my Bridget Jones style knicker knackers, no matter how sexy you think these fabled "Older Women" are. "I feel so attractive now that someone called me old," said no 30-year-old ever. When you describe me as old, you may as well dip me in wrinkles, slather me in grey, then drop all my freckles into a residential care home one by one. "Old" is for old peoples homes, and I'm at least 55 years away from that. When you fetishize my age, you erase my value and individuality. I'm a bloody unicorn, dammit. I'm more than my greys (WHICH I DO NOT HAVE!) I read books. I hike and run with my dogs. I value my friends. I'm a whole damn person, not a frigging fetish. When you silently sneak into my inbox on your fancy Converse Chucks simply because I'm older, you're insinuating that my age is the best trait I have to offer. You dehumanise me, and I swear I'm a whole person with a vast array of annoying habits that have nothing to do with my age and I can pretty much guarantee that im particularly immature when it comes down to things. The men behind the "You're-old-wanna-fuck" messages aren't looking for a grownup anyway. They're looking for a kink dispenser. And parent. Whilst I'm looking for an adult.
