Why Can’t Older Women Flaunt Their Sex Appeal?: Romance : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
No human being should have to live inside the cocoon of others' approval, particularly when those "others" are the hypocritical kind.I have personally come to note that in matters like this, people (both men and women) are driven more by jealousy than anything else. I have seen situations where people condemn others' preferred fashion, social behaviour, or lifestyle mainly from deep seated jealousy than from moral rectitude and indignation. An "aged woman" that decides she wants to be more liberal in her dressing than "others" expect, how more morally condemnable is she than the "less aged woman" in similar instance? If a 50-something year old woman decides to dress more sexily (relative to her age of course), how "more wrong" is she than a 30-something or even upper 20-something year old who want the same thing?The age? C'mon, gimme a break!An 18 year old "woman" knows everything she needs to know as a woman already. Yes, women develop faster than men when it comes to issues of sex and sexuality (romance, marriage, etc). I have personally noticed that women remain the same in behaviour as far as sexuality is concerned almost for all their lives once they cross 18-20 year barrier. They feel and want the same things -always. The only gag or restraint on the older ones is that they would have, by that age, had children and grand children; but it still doesn't change how they feel inside once those social achievements (children and grandchildren) are "controlled for" in the analysis. What this means is that women hardly change even with children and grandchildren in tow. They just try to live their lives accommodating the children; and for that, society should not really expect much much more from them, such as not occasionally dressing as they feel. This is a controversial opinion but it is based on truth.If given the same "assets" (legs, shape, etc) nearly all women would want to show it off one way or the other -it is basic human (animal if you like) instinct.But most of the times, those among them that can really boast of such "assets" are few and far in between, leaving the majority (which do not have them) to judge the ones that do; essentially forcing them to share in the latter's reality. This opinion does not encourage women to throw caution to the winds and go hay wire. It only puts things in proper perspective and not kow-tow to mob justice, often coming from suspicious and less credible corners of the social space. So, "mama", please be yourself, but remember that you have children.
