Going Gray Rebellion: Stop Dying Your Hair

Embrace your gray hair. Banish hair dyes from your life. Be a strong, attractive and independent woman.

Remove the toxins from your life and the environment by claiming your true identity. Stop wasting money promoting a false image.

Stuff Societal Expectations

As men age they develop character, women just get old.

Unknown

Stuff that – I’m being polite here with my exclamation.

Why is it that societal norms believe that an older man has character, whilst an older woman loses value and just becomes wrinkly.

This belief is seen again and again in the media, in films, in wealthy old men with a woman in her 20s …

Don’t believe me? Here are some quotes:

“The French novelist Yann Moix claims a 50-year-old woman’s body is unlovable, unlike a 25-year-old’s.”

Leonardo DiCaprio (45): The actor has never dated a woman older than 25, despite having had eight girlfriends since he himself was that age.”

“A widely acknowledged aspect of the gender system, women are judged more by their physical attractiveness than men.”

“Unless we were taking a nap, we all got the memo about women’s beauty fading with age. Younger women have the beauty that old men seek.”

I defy this misogynist thinking.

Older women are strong, independent and have emotional maturity. If an older man is scared of those traits then it says a lot about his own insecurities.

A man who values an older woman’s true self is worth his weight in gold.

Still think older women with gray hair can’t be attractive?

Did you notice they all had gray hair? And did it matter? Not one little bit!

Embrace your gray, after all aging is a privilege denied to many.

Banish Chemicals From Your Head

Be proud to be who you are at the age you’re at.

Hair colour statistics and industry trends claim that 85% of women colour their hair at least once every eight weeks. When you combine that percentage with studies that show permanent hair dyes could increase the risk for breast cancer, it paints a scary picture.

As well as hair dyes causing toxicity, skin damage and allergic reactions, there’s the cost of repeatedly buying an unnecessary item.

Then there’s the environmental impact of washing the chemicals from hair dyes down the drain and into lakes, rivers and streams.

Virtually none of the chemicals in hair dye have been tested for their impacts on aquatic ecosystems or ability to bioaccumulate up the food chain.

The Benefits of Being with a Woman Over 40

Not mine, but copied and pasted from Facebook (Andy Rooney).

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, ‘What are you thinking?’ She doesn’t care what you think.

If a woman over 40 doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it’s usually more interesting.

Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, ‘Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Here’s an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realise it’s not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!

    My 65 year old wife stopped dying her hair recently. That’s fine with me. That’s her choice, I don’t have an opinion on it. I don’t dye mine either though oddly at 64 it hasn’t turned gray so far. You have to be comfortable in your own skin.
