Ashton Applewhite is a pro-aging advocate and author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism. She began blogging about ageism in 2007, speaking about it in 2012 and hasn’t stopped. Aging is not a problem to be fixed or a disease to be cured. We live in a world that encourages us not to think about aging. It’s time for a radical aging movement against ageism. And we need to start by confronting our own bias. Let’s ask ourselves how do we feel about age and aging? It’s difficult to go a day without seeing an ad for an anti-aging product or a new lifestyle to keep us young. We can’t stop getting older, but we sure can embrace it. As Ashton says, we’re all ‘Old People In-Training’.
