Boomers make feckless comparisons with their parents' generation, like 60 is the new 50. Shaving off 10 years simply because we don't like the idea of getting older is just blowing smoke up our collective butts. But, there is one glaring generational difference, and that's our disparate sexualities.
How do you know when you're old? None of my peers seem to know they're old. Even after they see their wrinkles and gray hair, whine about arthritic pain and celebrate another monumental birthday, all I ever hear them say is, "I'm getting old." They don't get the connection between those old age signs and actually being old.
