Ageism reins strong

I often read teen forums to see what young people think about things. One thing which impresses me is their almost total lack of discrimination when it comes to race, gender, sexual orientation and religion and anyone who makes a discriminatory remark along these lines is quickly slapped down.

Unfortunately this unbigoted attitude doesn't extend to ageism- where I see many put-downs of old people. In fact the main reason young people are so pro-Obama has nothing to do with his politics but the fact that McCain is "old".

This doesn't bode well for me since I'm clearly on the wrong side of 60 and I just hope that when all these young people take control of the government they don't send us old people off to some bad place.
