Sexy at 69? Internet Goes Crazy!
Nasty comments erupted on Twitter within minutes of Sarandon's appearance at the Screen Actors' Guild (SAG) Awards this week.
Among them hilariously misplaced references to "SAG"... wink, wink, and "tacky". Whoa, nothing saggy there about her damn nice-looking breasts and nothing tacky about the classic white Max Mara suit she wore! Misogyny dies hard, it seems. And it appears even harder for some people to accept a woman over 60 looking, feeling and acting like a sexual being.
What on earth are they thinking? That we should just roll-over and hide, nah, disappear, when we turn a 'certain age'? No surprise there, I remind myself that for most of my younger years I lived under similar delusion. All things sex are just going to slow down, go south, and go away after 50!
Not only was I, thankfully, horribly wrong, but the reality turns out to be quite the opposite. Thousands of women report best sex of their lives well into their 60's, 70's and beyond. This has been a rather well-kept secret, unfortunately, and the truth needs to be told.
No, the internet was full of awe and praise! "Rock Solid", "Hot Septuagenarian" screamed the headlines about the actor famous for portraying Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek.
Do you see the problem? Can we talk about it?
Because the only way this horrible treatment of women is going to change will be if more of us speak up and shame the shamers!

Solidarity sisters! We will all be 69 one day!
