Have you ever wondered where old age bias originated from? We haven’t either, but then again why should that stop us from writing this article.
We are all guilty of either propagating or tolerating this age-old old-age bias. Most people are unaware that such a bias can actually affect old hags in a freakish way.
Long awaited, a campaign has been started called – Old Hags are Young (marry them) – by HOW (Hags of Worth), which has its core mission of making every old hag feel like a Princess – beautiful, confident, and extremely proud of themselves.
I am Young and Beautiful - marry me.
Young and old alike are pretty excited about the campaign. Here are some of their comments.
Go old hags go. You are just like the rest of us, only slightly more ugly, worn out, and decrepit. – Pappu Yadav on condition of mentioning his identity.
Ankit Mali says, we need to rethink the way we talk with kids about old hags — at school, at home and in the media. Ankit Mali is a photographer, traker, traveller, author, reader, painter, thinker, philosopher, freelance journalist, humanist, lets-make-a-better-worldist, lets-make-a-differencist, etc.
Kavita Chachachachi tweets: Grow up people! Every individual is beautiful in their own way! Old hags are beautiful in their own way. And if I was a lesbo (not to say that I have something against being lesbian) I would have married tons of them.
Bhabha Pappamummy says,
I find it offensive that attractiveness and success are attributed to old age of hags instead of their personality, and intelligence, or lack-of-personality, and dumbnes.
[We sincerely appologize for the above comment, as it is offensive to people, since we all know: lack-of-personality of old hag is personality, and, dumbness of old hag is intelligence (another two of our forthcoming campaigns). We simply can't let these kinds of prejudices and biases to exist in the society. Lets build a more just and equitable world, where pig is called cow and cow is called mouse (we are yet to decide what we should call a mouse).]
I am a proud dirty, ulgly, old hag! says Gunjan.
Beauty comes from inside and it shines from wrinkles and broken teeth, says Alia Matthew.
So next time you walk past by a dirty old hag, spend a moment to think that she is the most beautiful woman you have ever seen (and she is going to be good in the bed too – and this will make her extremely happy).
