    Women working is not actually the key factor. Women getting their own money is. If women would stay at home, but would get enough money via society (= high taxes to men who would be working) ... and that money would also grown women's own pensions ... women could stay at home. Incl. me.

    Meaning: Own money is the important issue here (not a work). Husband working and giving money to family is not the same thing. Own money is the thing which gives human independence (she is not forced to do something she doesn't want to). She can not be ''tighten'' either to do something. Work and salaries are just tools to reach those; not anything else. But so far I have not hear about any society which would be ready to pay something to women automatically; neither men who would agree that ''half of their earnings'' would go to ''unknown'' women (via taxes). Until then ... I support women workings.

    I'm pretty sure that if housewives or stay-at-home mothers would receive a salary there would be less women motivated to go for a career. Perhaps some time in future, when many jobs will be automated and we will be heading towards the universal income.

    As for ageing, I don't like it, however if I look back at my life, I am at a point where I am doing much better than I used to. Sometimes I wish I were in my early 20s again, eventhough I still feel relatively young. Rather than ageing itself, it's death I mostly fear. Part of me finds it hard to grasp that one day everything will be over. And what's beyond it, if anything? Many existential questions I normally don't think too much about, but which sometimes keep me up at night...

    Honestly... I love having more and more white hair!

    Nowadays it's even a trend to have white hair, people who don't have it bleach their hair and colour it grey or white... so I'm even trendy having white hair naturally!

    I've been asked a couple of times if I dyed my hair white... or if it's natural... since my skin looks pretty young.

    I think white/grey hair is really nice:

    I think so too, it can look quite sophisticated. I don't know if this is just an American thing or what, but it makes me sad to see older women getting dyke haircuts or dying their hair ghastly colors. I have some idea why they do this but it's a disservice to everyone, getting older shouldn't mean you give up your woman card - why surrender power like that?

    Emma Watson now identifies as ‘self-partnered’ rather than single

    Ahead of her 30th birthday, Emma Watson has coined her own term for being single by describing herself as “self-partnered”.



    The actor – whose birthday is in April – described the pressures of entering the third decade of her life and the “influx of subliminal messaging” about what you should have achieved by then.

    “If you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby […] There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety,” she told British Vogue.

    Watson, 29, said she has never believed the “‘I’m happy single’ spiel” and didn’t quite underhand why people would “make such a big fuss about turning 30”.

    Yet after turning 29, Watson described how she felt “stressed” by the waves of expectations thrust upon her as she approached turning 30.

    “If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you’re not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you’re still figuring things out,” she said.



    “There’s just this incredible amount of anxiety.”

    “I was like: ‘This is totally spiel,’” she said.

    “It took me a long time, but I’m very happy [being single]. I call it being self-partnered.”

    She also added that she has found 2019 “tough” as she “had all these ideas” about what her life would look like this year.

    But her idea for ‘self-partnered’ has been welcomed by fellow singletons on Twitter, though, Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan trashed the term today.

    “Where do we get this rubbish from?” he said, reported the Metro.co.uk, “‘self-partnering’ means you can’t get a bloke right?”

    She doesn't enter the third decade of her life, she enters the fourth. So if she wants to have a family, she should hurry up. The term "self-partnered" is just crazy and retarded.

    Pretty good! I feel better at 50 than I did in my 20’s. I’m not coloring my grays either just blending them in with a few highlights. I hope I can use my acquired wisdom and strength to help the younger people struggling to make in this crazy world.

    I agree!!!
    That part is pretty crazy. I was heavy for the first time in my life in my mid 40’s. Something changed and it took a couple years to adjust and get back to normal.

    I doubt that I am at an age where I can make an informed statement, but so far I have only felt better each decade of my life not getting any prettier - not that bad as a man - but physically remaining strong and getting wiser each year. I feel I am at a good place and I have found that what is described commonly as the "best time of ones life" was nothing but struggle for me.
