It’s a bizarre occurrence because there's a certain arrogance in the idea that whilst you're young, you're never going to get 'old', despite the idea that getting old and growing mature is a simple, and unavoidable, fact of life.George Bernard Shaw succinctly acknowledges this idea through his quote - ' Youth is wasted on the young'.When there are more important issues to be dealt with such as the legal battles with marriage equality, legislation being developed to discriminate against gay men and women, the idea of being scared of our own mortality simply seems a waste of energy.This website is dedicated to exploring the world of mature gays and mature gay sex.
Mature people, the elderly, are often left to be forgotten.
If you load up the Grindr application, or any gay dating app you'll find a bunch of varying comments with ageist attitudes that will brazenly attack old trolls, 'daddies' and 'grandpas'.
If you go to a gay bar, you'll often find that older gay men are ignored or treated with outright hostility.
What's sad is that this is not an isolated occurrence.
Youth, in particular with young gay men, will sometimes bizarrely use the idea of being old as an insult.
