Ageism on ATRL needs to STOP!

134 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I saw someone throwing shade at another member for being Katheryn’s age and still “perched” on ATRL.


Yes, those 24yo ATRLers that were on here 10 years ago, are now 34 years old.


Just like those 14yo ATRLers that were on here 10 years ago (calling 24yo members “pathetic” for still being perched on ATRL), are now 24yo themselves and still… perched on ATRL.


Just like we’ll all still be on here 10 years from now, all 10 years older.  That's how time works, dearies. tumblr_pzq6inVEIa1xmo1c7o1_75sq.gifv


And if anyone is thinking “Omg I can’t imagine being on ATRL 10 years from now!  Omg that’d be pathetic!  I’ll be married with 12 children in 10 years and won’t have the time to be visiting ATRL! :bibliahh:”…


Well… do you plan on falling out of love with your fav or music in general anytime soon?  Plan on not caring about getting tea on what your fav is planning for an upcoming era or when music is rumored to be released?  Planning on not defending your fav in those tea threads when you’re reading through them?  No?  I didn’t think so...

It reminded me of 10 years ago when 20yo Mons†ers were shading 30yo Mons†ers for being “too old” to be at a Lady Gaga concert… and now - ten years later - your 30yo booty is perched front row at an Ava Max concert.

This ageism bs needs to stop - we’ll all be here 10 years from… :foxaylove3:

I'm (thankfully) still in my 20's, but I agree. Sure, it's a quick and easy drag, but you're right, unless we plan to stop caring about pop culture by age X, there's no point in dragging others who are still into it at that age or older. People are fanatic sports fans well into their older years, why can't pop stans keep that same energy? :michael:

Agree with everything except for the "ava max concert" part, it's just not realistic.

You're right about the fact that it's a lot of ageist Monsters out there; they sure do love dragging Madonna, Katy, Beyonce, Nicki etc for their age.

It is weird how people drag each other over their age on here. Is someone who is 30 years old supposed to suddenly lose interest in all their hobbies and just become a robot? 

 

It's the stans in their 30s with the expendable income that are keeping your faves alive :flower:

You can drag every flop stat Katy has on all metrics but if you go for age (or any artist for that matter), you are a shiit human being. ATRL should know better. The gays should OBJECTIVELY know better.

I was around 19 when I first came aboard ATRL when TRL was a daily show. I stepped away 2011/2012 because of this life thing, decided I wanted a man, got said man/graduated/rebooted self, and then I recently decided to come back intermittently as this is still a place for me. Here i am at 33. I can't bish, stan, speak and rant about some topics like I do here vs on Facebook. 

 

I have more experience , but the younger yall can stay up past 11 PM. : D
