Don’t Assume

Bloguarany 9 What do people incorrectly assume about you?

Because of my age, I am someone’s sweet naive grandma, who has no interest in sex and probably never liked it anyway, who is ignorant of all aspects of the internet and sits in a rocking chair all day, knitting and waiting to die.

Because of my size, I am a lazy glutton who doesn’t care about herself and is, or should be, ashamed of how she looks.

Because of my beliefs, am I a godless heathen who is destined to burn in hell, simply because I rejected Jesus as my personal savior, a sign of the ignorance of the truth.

All of this is incorrect. I often get told I don’t act like someone who is 71, and when they hear my voice, they say I sound much younger than that. And I still have a sex-positive attitude towards sex and still get aroused by things that would shock others even if I was younger.

Too many assume that others are heavy because they eat too many calories, but weight is more complicated than that. If it were that easy, everyone would be thin.

And the arrogance that Christians have about religion is galling. They feel they have the right to dictate to everyone else what to believe and how to live. Most are shocked that I have to disagree with that.

  1. Well I’m gonna disagree about people thinking you’re sexless. Those of us who are in our 70s others have to remember that we are also in our teens and 20s during the free love era. Make love not war. I agree with the weight. 90% of the world doesn’t understand that it’s not just gluttony. It can be a life threatening terrible life experience that drives a person they have more weight than another probably less than 30 years ago fashion designers decided that queen size women as they call it might want to wear something more than a baby doll look you know with a bow tie at the neck.

    Oh yes the grandma said yesterday blue hair. Dresses that came up to just below our boobs and they were not an empire style thick brogues. White powder faces too much blush. We are not old grandmas. Although I do have a little bit of extra skin hanging from my upper arms but I don’t look like I can fly yet with it

    I don’t wanna rocking chair although someone stole a beautiful wood one mini mini years ago from me that I just ate inside that left me!

    Many women are still working! Many of us after the age of 60 care less about things that people that are 30 and 40 care about and it saves us a great deal of money, sometimes time and can make us much happier more of the time also

    Well that’s about it thank you for your words.

    1. We know each other well and have had discussions about sex, so I knew you would understand. It’s amazing how many people don’t understand it. Your comment about clothing is so true. A woman in her 60’s did an experiment with ordering those clothing subscription boxes. She ordered two… same color choices, same size, but with different ages… one with her real age of 60, and the other will a fake age of 30. Normally you would expect the same clothing in both boxes, but it didn’t happen that way. The box for a 30-year-old was trendy and sexy, the box for the 60-year-old was shapeless and frumpy. Ageism at its worst.
