Now Rosie is a liberal woman, and Elizabeth the young married mother of 2 kids, who is conservative.
They got in a little battle today.
Rosie, said, something along the lines of:
Your young, you don't know better, come back to me when your 45, and you'll know better
Thats an ageist comment, discrediting my beliefs based on age
I disagree with you on so many things, that its the only way I keep myself from getting angry, by thinking to myself your not old enough to understand.
They cut her off commercial, end of that.
Now my feelings are, noones values and beliefs should be discredited based on their age, if they are 18+, they are an adult. In fact I believe most young people are more in depth and intelligent then the 45 + crowd.
Now the double standard is:
Your a young Conservative: your ignorant, not old enough to understand, need to be more experienced, your flawed with your immaturity.
Your a young Liberal: your intelligent, you in depth, smart, mature, worldy,
This is personal for me as a young Conservative in my 20s, like Elizabeth, I face this, where my Conservative views are discredited with my age.
So your flawed if your a young conservative
So your bright and an intellect if your a young liberal.
