      hi..
      unfortunately, i too have experienced this social DIScrimination in family, work and personal settings and throughout life.
      even at 42 i’m still experiencing it as if i have never aged at all and the problem just stood so prevelently stagnent in my life.
      young people (especially women) are intimidated by my confidence, charisma and physical appearance.
      sad to say, i think i’ve actually adjusted, expected and in many ways looking at myself today, accepted it. i don’t like the woman i’ve become, in that it makes me feel subjected to judgement, and belittled in what i know i can truly offer.
      my old self has many times repeated to myself that the underline reason(s) behind such response from other women is jealousy, envy, and insecurity. all deflecting from the individual targeting me.
      my sheer presence to others is extremely judgemental, in that they think i am who they think i am, but i’m not. therefore, their thoughts/actions seem justified to them.
      i have been turned down for employment on first-time interview(s) after successful phone interview, terminated for unjustifiable reasons, pushed, shoved in the public streets by passers-by, followed by strange women in malls and boutiques, and also as far as having been rude to when requesting help at stores. by people obviously working on commission!
      this problem is not only becoming MORE popular, but it will soon result in physical harm of its victims. they say, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder“, and “jealousy can kill.”
      hopefully, this kind of BULLYING doesn’t become a normalcy in corporate america, like it did with young girls in the schools. because it’s now the reason i agressively seek professional independence in having my own personal business. frown
