“We need an anti-ageist movement. Ashton is already in it.”

 There’s no one I’d be happier to hear that from than cultural critic and feminist Margaret Morgenroth Gullette. Resident Scholar at Brandeis University, Gullette is the author of Agewise: Fighting the New Ageism in America and has influenced my thinking enormously. She was kind enough to forward the invite to my upcoming talk at Cooper Union to frends with this introduction:  “Ashton Applewhite is the very clever inventor of the blog Yo Is This Ageist?, where she offers snappy retorts to  ageist hits and usefully decided opinions about age protocol.  We need an anti-ageist movement, for sure.  Ashton is already in it.” I’m hoping for lots more company.
