Women Respond to 50-Year-Old Author Who Says Women His Age Are "Too Old" to Love

By

50-year-old French author Yann Moix caused a bit of a stir online when he went in-depth about how the age of a woman disqualifies her as a potential love interest.

Apparently, he finds women 50 years old and over "too old to love." It went over about as well as you'd expect a comment like that would, especially considering that Moix is a learned man, who is 50 years old himself.

People on Twitter immediately eviscerated him for his comments and condemned the double-standard regarding gender and age that Moix not only fell victim to, but felt the need to perpetuate.

Before getting into all of those roasts, however, it's important to clarify just how freaking wrong Moix is. And I'm not trying to be all "woke" and "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" here.

Sure, taste accounts for a lot as to whether we find someone or something beautiful, but the examples I'm about to present were solely selected with Moix in mind. The man said that "the body of a 25-year-old woman is extraordinary. The body of a 50-year-old woman is not extraordinary at all."

I'm sorry to say Moix, old boy, but even if we're going by what you find "extraordinary," you're dead wrong.
