I used to lie when I was younger that I was older because I thought people would take me as a manager more seriously. Now that I’m older I never tell. Just leave it up to people to guess and go with it. They always guess younger Lol

Another example for age-based discrimination is white hair..how it looks sexy on a man (according to most ppl) n not so much on women (reason why most women try to hide it while men proudly flaunt it). . Oh..I got another example. If a man marries a girl 10 yrs younger (or more) it's totally cool, but if a woman marries a man 10 yrs younger (or more) then she's ridiculed. Also in bollywood we see this stereotype a lot. Older actors romancing very young actresses (sometimes even their daughter's age!) but hardly an actress romancing an actor even 3 or 4 yrs younger! Also what surprises me is there r hardly movies made on older woman-younger man love in India

@Evoke Music and the person's video on whom u r complaining, she didnt have all that finance ,and support, she made it herself, and being out side of america, she got her own TV show, she has worked hard for it. What that tells u? Didnt she get a chance? U can get a chance if u have what it takes. Simple as that. I have given u many examoles where people got their chances was later then ur age. So if u just wanna ignore it and fight. Thats okay. Go ahead.

@Evoke Music if u think at 31 you are not young, u need serious thinking. Just for a moment think, u r the owner of some company , and u have to recruit people ,u will go by your way of thinking. I m just being realistic here. If u think u will get it because u complaining here, u r living in a naive world. There is no point in living fantasy world, nothing comes easy and nothing is cheap. Yes there are example where people dont get chances, but there also examples where people kept on working instead of comolaining. There is no morality in this world ,so instead of blaming others keep on working. I cant stay more than that. Its ur life, u can complain and complain or work for it. Have a good life ahead.

1) you haven't faced it, you can't erase other people's struggles. 2) there is difference between still rocking at 50 and breaking through at 50. Most of the people still rocking at 50 became popular when they were young and managed to keep their fan base. 3) you live in a naiive world if you think everyone who works hard and talented get opportunities and get their due 4) ppl think they won't get their investment back on an older artist because the general mindset of consumers is like that, they always want young people or young looking people and a big bias against older women who look their age. Hence, there is need for change of perception to be brought in the society.

@Evoke Music @Evoke Music u need to see the context here. 1. U cant just say apart from industries where physical work is required, that ppl not getting job because they are getting old. I can give u lot of examples of ppl in music industry only are still rocking at the age of 50. If someone have talent they can get the job.(where again obviously physical work is not required). 2. Its a profit business where ppl invest their money, if they cant find their investment being returned they are not gonna invest in it. Its as simple as that. U cant blame that. Yes u can say that to govt. 3. There are plenty of people who started late in their age still be successful. U can urself name them lot. Working hard is the only option when obviously u dont have any support financially or u know u have not inherited riches. But u cant blame others for that. Sia got her first single at the age of 41. Till then she was singing as a back up singer for many artists. Judi dench got her first role in james bond when she was 61. Till then she was just doing theaters. Morgan Freeman was recognized at the age of 50. Christoph waltz was 51 when he got his first famous role as col. Hans lada. Till then he was working small. If u know Lucille ball,she got recognized at the age of 40. Till then she was doing stage performances and low budget movies. Samuel jackson got his first score atthe age of 43, and he was recognized by the age of 46. So If u have will to work hard, and believe in urself, u can get it. I know there are many factors, but u cant blame it on others. Thats my point. U r just 31. There is plenty of life ahead of you,if that's what u want to do in ur life, u will achieve success. My all wishes are with u.

Absolutely false. Especially in the music and movies industries. When was the last time you saw a musician/actor making it big later in their lives? How many such ppl are even there? I'm facing it myself as a 31year old, you dont get to erase my problems

its not agesim its just that average life span has now reduced to less than 50 so i think they just want to u to retire soon n spend sometime with yourself n what lilly is saying its only found in the entertainment industry so agesim word is too small to be addressed as a whole, why do they say start early in life cos this is what they end up if not n start complaining later n make rant allover, so if u are lagging behind for a reason may that reason itself is the problem not the society

@Nivedita Naidu The thing is she's just insecure about herself. She's getting irrelevant day by day and aged also.In which era she's living in women are getting equal pay as much as men.I have so many relatives and cousins who are women and are at high posts and getting paid equally. Lilly is just jealous of everybody else.
Nivedita Naidu
Nivedita Naidu Måned siden
@varun gurjar She's just putting out all the her personal frustrations because she's 33 and is insecure of the people who are more successful than her. She rants so much on how less she's being paid by NBC. Basically she wants to convert all her personal problems into social issues. And honestly I'm tired of her rants on Women being paid less than Men. What era does she live in? Women get paid as much as Men do in most countries, and some women earn allot more than Men do. But for Lily, being feminist is the only way to success. Watch all the episodes of her show, it's revolving only between her fame, how rich she is, being bisexual, talking shit about white people, her appearance, not to mention her repeated jokes on her "clevage", it makes me sick to even write what she jokes about and people praise her for it. Can you imagine a talk show host praising themselves in every episode of their show and making lame jokes which only ridicule teens who think she's funny. In reality she's not the influencer one should be looking up to. Atleast not anymore!

@Kanupriya Chandel She's basically doing 'NOsections' things on TV. She was talking about herself and her issues on her NOsections channel, now she talks about the same on national TV. She brags so much for this small budgeted shitty show, with paid audience and fake laughter. The amount of people who have subscribed to her Late Night channel on NOsections vs her actual subscribers in her own channel shows how many people lost interest in watching her.

I dont get the point of this video as it didnt make sense all other videos also. What is this age thing? If u r good enough u get appreciation, simple. She talks about Steven , martin, they are still there because they deserve it. She is so bad. Just like her fake feminism, because u r a female u deserve everything. Its not that, u should be worthy, there are plenty of female in every area they earn more then many men.i want to write so much, but don't want to. And I just cant listen to her anymore.

not to be ageist, but like, look at this in the professional way. Young people mean, less money, more hours, newer perspective, lesser out of work responsibilities, more extra time, etc etc. Experience is great and all, but these things need to be taken in consideration. Please correct me if i am wrong, but would you rather hire a 20 year old who is more knowledgeable about todays technology and ideas, and will work for the bare minimum happily for a lot of extra time, or a 40 year old who has a lot of experience but with that responsibilities and as per my experience, usually not much knowledge on todays needs?
Cat Eve
Cat Eve Måned siden
yeah but the reason we work hard for less as 20 year olds is to build a career that will last over our lives. If you told young people they are not longer useful by 30 or 40 nobody would make those kind of sacrifices during their 20s. This argument is just 'if being unethical makes me more money, then it's ok'. I don't think many gen z people would get on board with that.

Erica Gamet Måned siden
If you're just going to relate it to having kids, maybe. But even so, in their mid- to late-40s, if they've had kids, those kids are getting older and more independent. Also, older folks (like myself... I'm early 50s) tend to be way more committed to jobs that value them. They're less likely to quit on a whim because they've got those other responsibilities... like house and car payments and kids going off to college. The point isn't really an age thing, though... it goes back to employers hiring the right folks and compensating those folks fairly. So people will want to stay with your company and give their best years to it. And I work in tech have grown with tech since the late 1980s... so the whole "not being tech savvy" really doesn't apply anymore (you're thinking of my mom's generation and she's happily retired now).
Nimishaaa Måned siden
It's a two sided debate, both have pros and cons what's important is.. there should be an acceptance of the problem and normalisation of the aging.. ppl should not be pushed out of work just caz they r old though they have full potential and can touch even higher peaks..
