Grow a thicker skin.
Unless the OP has excluded you from something, because of your age, he's not discriminating against anyone.
People start spewing all this crap without considering the fact that discrimination doesn't come into play at all.
Like the free speech BS that people ALWAYS get wrong. It's all just knee jerk reactions to every day life, people have become so soft and weak over the years that society is just a homogenized bucket of lifeless and worthless losers.
OH NO, Someone said something that might not be politically correct!
Lets call 'Senior Citizens' old age pensioners again, the 'physically challenged', cripples. Stop this CURVE learning process, if you kid is a 'slower learner', he's STUPID and gets to stay in grade4 for 10 years until he learns to read like a normal human being. African Americans are NOT all African, but they all do have black toned skin, so lets say BLACK people again. If you are FAT, you are 'kin FAT! end of, don't like it? Lose some friggin' weight, DO something about it!
"He doesn't understand, it's not easy, blah blah blah..."
Bullsh*t! When I get too FAT I put less FOOD in my gut. I eat less garbage and drink less beer. If I fail and stay FAT, then it's my 'kin fault that I'm a fat, lard arse, nobody else's.
They don't have to make special seats for me, IT'S SELF INFLICTED! If I take up two chairs I should PAY for two chairs or stay home and stuff my fat face some more.
Let's start facing life for what it is and forget about what other people think or say, we'd get a lot farther in life with a lot less heartache in the process. Nobody is being hurt, it's reality, face it or die like the weakest ones always do.
I'm just SO SICK of people whining about the world around them and expecting the garden of Eden to appear because they are offended and expect everyone else to be too! Face it, being politically correct, and expecting it from others, has become no more CORRECT than just offending people with what are now deemed derogatory comments.
The sheer fact that everything has to be so politically correct these days actually creates MORE resentment and harm than calling a spade a spade. 20 years ago, if someone said you were too old to do something, you'd reply, " f'ck you you little puke, watch me!" Now a mere comment, that someone may be found too old to be a viable hire, creates offense and disrespect. Out comes the lynch mob, waving their canes, false teeth and walkers. What a weak a$$ed bunch of pansies!
It's truly sad, people taking offense to such comments should be ashamed of themselves for being so pathetic and needy of constant positive reinforcement.
Absolutely mental! What a sad, hideous society some of us have to put up with these days.
