    I wouldn't say pathetic... I'd say somewhat interesting, somewhat unnecessary.
    I don't get "we are your future."
    Does he mean "future selves?"

    19. Just because a guy is older doesn't mean he necessarily has his own place icon_sad.gif

    20: Just because a guy is older doesn't mean he smells worse than you do.

    Nothin, just the list is rather pointless.

    there are many hot 40+ people around if younger guys are into them then they are into them. Nothing more nothing less.

    You don't need to "educate" younger guys about them.

    It really saddens me that Huffington Post turned into a tabloid type website. It used to be a decent source for news.

    "..part of the reason you have so many new rights is because of our visibility and the visibility of men before us. Gay rights didn't happen by magic, but they could disappear faster than you can say "abracadabra."

    And they may disappear, given the apathy of today's generation. That does worry me.

    I could have understood something like "Lessons and knowledge an older generation of gays passes on to the younger generation of gay."

    But this article is more like why 20something gays should date 40something gays. Basically, it sounds desperate and borders on creepy.

    I think this article is kind of a throwaway, exhibiting little value, but I'm not seeing how it's about trying to convince 20 something year olds to date older men. icon_question.gif

    Most 20-something year old guys are grossed out with the idea of dating anyone 2 years older than them. icon_lol.gif

    Seriously? You don't see it?

    Let's see, it basically says:
    -> don't be afraid you getting HIV from 40+
    -> don't worry that we going to be all about Babs and Judy
    -> don't worry that we have kids your age
    -> we don't want to marry you, we just want to fuck you
    .... and on and on.

    I think it is a 'let me put your mind at ease on dating 40 y/o's'. You either got it or you ain't. If you got to try to win someone over with an article like this you either don't go it or your feeling insecure about yourself.

    Looks like you just made a list of stuff claiming it said some things it didn't say.

    Honestly, it isn't what some of you are blowing it up to be.

    My generation is full of narcissists and airheads whom think that anyone over 30 is an alien from another planet.

    My generation scorns and scoffs at anyone whom doesn't fit the mold of the sensationalized glamor bodies seen on television or actors with model faces.

    It's nicely pointing out the absurdity of my generation.

    My peers take selfies and talk about how fabulous they are on Facebook and Twitter, not realizing that 2 years turns into 20 and suddenly, the tables are turned on them as no body wishes to look at them any longer.

    Like washed up supermodels.

    lol wut

    AMoonHawk said-> don't be afraid you getting HIV from 40+
    1: Never assume because we are over 40 that we are HIV-Positive or practice unsafe sex.
    AMoonHawk said-> don't worry that we going to be all about Babs and Judy
    2: We aren't all enamored of Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Bette Midler and Judy Garland.
    AMoonHawk said-> don't worry that we have kids your age
    3: Not all men over 40 are dads, and even those who are don't always like to be called Daddies, unless it's by a child we're raising.
    AMoonHawk said-> we don't want to marry you, we just want to fuck you
    4: You don't need to look at us with sad eyes if we say we don't want to get married.


    That's exactly what they're saying.


    It really isn't. It's pretty straight-forward and all you guys are doing is assuming a bunch of stuff.

    I swear, gay people look for things to take offense at.

    Makes you wonder if we could come up with a better list of things 20-somethings should know about 40-somethings. Mostly in the vein of the "What would you tell your 20-something self, now that you are over 40."

    On top of my list: stop doing things (and especially buying things) just because you think people think they are cool.
