Why do people age shame women more than they do men in society?
What Guys Said 20
Because a woman's prime value is attraction and youth and beauty is most attractive. Once you hit the wall your value plummets. Also why you need to find a suitable mate BEFORE you hit the wall. Otherwise you're competing with the younger gals that the men in your age group can pull, and why would they take an old dried up woman over a young beautiful one?
You really don't get this?
And why we keep hearing, "Where have all the good men gone?" The good ones all got snapped up!
Men age like fine wine. Women? Well, not so much. More like milk. [shrug]
A mans prime is 35-40. A woman's is 20-30.8
Women traditionally have more value placed on appearance, while for men it is more what they have accomplished.7
I have no idea what you mean by age shaming. I don't trash male or female for getting old nor do I think someone's value goes down as they get older.
We all get old eventually. That's nature.4
because a woman's likeley most important value to a man is her sexuality and this declines with age.
A mans most likely to be important characteristic to a woman is his earning power which often goes up with age.
this seems uber obvious even if it is painful to hear. I am not diminishing the value of companionship/friendship, but these "other" traits are real and do matter.4
Age shame? Dafuk?
Maybe you could elaborate on exactly WTF you mean, please.5
Because the way our society is that women are considered to be most attractive in their twenties but many girls are attracted to guys in their 30's, 40's or even 50's even if they are much younger.0
people are stupid2
I think it's the women who makes a big deal of it more.. Fear of aging, anti wrinkle creams etc.3
Women's SMV aka Sexual Marketplace Value, is primarily derived from their youthfulness and physique.2
Because men are asswhores3
because men don't give a f. If you are talking about younger partners then shake it off and take their tears (complaints) as a compliment.0
Because of their behaviour and outfit as more reavealing then guys0
Because they mind it0
Because dudes are jerks and need to be equal with women.. gosh I hate gender roles0

women get better as they age, in my opinion0
Women have kind of done this to themselves. They used to have more value than they do today. They were good mothers and wives and focused on being good women and taking care of their husbands and families. Today they have largely reduced their value to sex, and their sex appeal naturally drops as they age.4
My opinion is that guys that treat women well but end up staying single for a long time because the girls want to mess around with jerks, those guys get pissed and won't accept her after she is older, less attractive, and has kids from other people and THEN decides she wants to settle down with someone that treats her good after she has lost her appeal and expects him to take care of all her baggage.
I don't look down on older women that are in a good relationship with a family and made good choices, but I do look down upon the ones with different baby daddies that partied for years and NOW expects a good guy like me to accept her. No thanks.1

It's mostly an American thing. American woman are repulsive to men after they reach a certain age. It's partially the cultural attitude of youth-worship, it's evolutionary biology but it's also the way American women let ourselves go typically. I think that's starting to change. Myself, I have more of an attitude of feeling sexy but in a different way as I get older. Honestly, I feel even more sexy. There's a growing confidence and something I have now that I didn't now that I didn't when I was younger:) l'm also not trying to party like I'm 20 or acting stupid hopefully so I don't notice anyone shaming me. They just tell me how well I'm looking♡6
because these men think a woman's only value is her sex appeal. This website is full of losers who hate woman because they are too selfish to admit that they aren't good enough for them. In the real world, when you want something, you sacrifice yourself to get it. These losers who can't take the slightest degree of rejection or humility and want perfect girls are the ones who age shame woman. the younger girls that they do find attractive are victims - they don't know they are dating losers and jerks.7
I think it's ridiculous and especially bad on this site.2
I think most of it is BS. Guys know it pisses women off by calling them old or fat, so they constantly do it. Until women stop being insecure this will never stop.3
