Is akin to calling a black person a ni**ger!

There I said it!

you said it, but you're wrong.

by Anonymousreply 102/03/2013

Um, no.

'Eldergay' is infinitely more successful than any comparable age-related slur.

by Anonymousreply 702/03/2013

you think eldergay is a slur... hahahah

by Anonymousreply 802/03/2013

I like it

by Anonymousreply 902/03/2013

That is because being a chrone, you are a much refered elderlez, Miss Ann.

by Anonymousreply 1002/03/2013

No, OP. Just no.

by Anonymousreply 1102/03/2013

Oh honey, no.

I'm on the cusp of eldergay and I still say....gurl. No. Just no.

Old Poof ??

by Anonymousreply 1302/03/2013

Yeah. I have to say bad comparison for a number of reasons.

by Anonymousreply 1402/03/2013

Nothing here to see, folks. Just the dementia on display.

by Anonymousreply 1502/03/2013

Well, it is definitely akin to calling a heterosexual who is a senior, an "ELDERSTRAIGHT"

by Anonymousreply 1602/03/2013

r16, the majority takes the unadorned adjective. They are simply seniors or elders. Only in the pejorative do they receive an adjective: elder crackers. Senior hoodies.

by Anonymousreply 1702/04/2013

The people who object to the term eldergay are the same ones who've been lying about their ages for the last forty years.

You're old. Deal with it.

by Anonymousreply 1802/04/2013

Getting to be elder, old or senior is much better than dying young. Here's hoping you all get to be old.

by Anonymousreply 1902/04/2013

"There are no Hollywood stars speaking out for the elderly. They're forgotten, bewildered, and I don't think it's because people are cruel or don't care. It's because you don't want to think about your own mortality. I think people don't talk about it enough. There's a strange arrogance. Sometimes being old is used as an insult, which is bizarre because, if you're lucky, that's literally what's going to happen to you. It's a strange thing to gloat about: being born recently."

R18 is correct.

Just don't call me an old fart.

by Anonymousreply 2302/04/2013

I like the word. Being a village elder in some cultures is to be revered.

Plus we got to see great performers in their heydays. Who will you be bragging about 40-50 years from now?

by Anonymousreply 2402/04/2013

R4, thank you for that third asterisk. It's appreciated.

by Anonymousreply 2502/04/2013

R18, not on DL. Here on DL it's a slam, an insult. Meant as a sign of respect? Hardly.

As for lying about ages, wrong. Passably witty but wrong.

by Anonymousreply 2602/04/2013

"Eldersister" or "Old homosexual" are better terms

by Anonymousreply 2702/04/2013

Eldergay is funny and cute.

I think it's tender in a way


by Anonymousreply 2802/04/2013

No.. with eldergay comes wisdom, with the n word comes a history of slavery, racism and white supremacy.

by Anonymousreply 2902/04/2013

Guys sometimes, i mean a lot of times you make me laugh with your questions and with your comments. You seem so sweet, insecure and such BIG FUZZBALLS! GOD I FEEL SO CORNY NOW, YOU ARE BIG KIDS!

I'm 44 and I think "eldergay" is a riot.

Lots of humorless prisses here.

by Anonymousreply 3202/04/2013

Eldergay is lovely and elegant. Not a slur at all.

by Anonymousreply 3302/04/2013

With fate and that rearview mirror in mind, here are a few things beyond the limbo I'm quite probably beyond doing. So, join me in just saying a post-50 No! to:


Jell-O shots.

Karaoke after midnight.

Karaoke after Jell-O shots.

Trying to break a plank with your head.

Mud wrestling (intentional).

Crowd surfing to the mosh pit.

Joining the circus. Joining the ashram.

Drinking champagne from your son's boyfriend's shoe.

Drinking champagne from your daughter's girlfriend's shoe.

Drinking champagne from your own shoe.

Xtreme bingo cruises.

Collecting owls made of shells, frogs made of ceramic or lawn gnomes made of anything — really, really anything.

Playing basketball in high heels.

Throwing a wet T-shirt contest.

Getting publicly and verbally excited about the number of stamps in your passport, zeroes in your paycheck, capital letters before or after your name (unless they're H.R.H.), number of names on your phone-favorites list, number of people you could have married, number of people you couldn't have married, the size of your acreage … or the size of your anything else.

Explaining your personal role in the fact that your brother's kids "never really got into any of that stuff …"

Explaining your personal role in the fact that your sister's kids got into an Ivy League college.

Explaining your personal role in starting the rumor that Paul was dead.

Single-spacing your Christmas letter.

The Dougie.

Giving up — ever.

When I hear "eldergay," I immediately get an image of Quentin Crisp.

by Anonymousreply 3502/04/2013

R32, do you think that being considered and called an eldergay is a riot?

Just curious.

by Anonymousreply 3602/04/2013

"...old chrone..."

Oh, dear.

Barbra at the Bon Soir! Bette at the baths!

Walking onto an airliner without people touching our bodies.

by Anonymousreply 4002/04/2013

Oh, and btw, if you think that "eldergay" is some derogatory name used by DL gaylings to insult and demean the elder gays? I got news for you: there ARE NO GAYLINGS ON DATALOUNGE. The DL is made up entirely of elder gays.

by Anonymousreply 4102/04/2013

r41: Just about to post the same thing--according to the poll, most of the posters here are over 40. You could change the name from DL to (eldergay). Ironic.

by Anonymousreply 4202/04/2013

I find it hilarious that the eldergays who call everyone a fatty or a frau roll up into a little ball and start crying when they're called an eldergay.


by Anonymousreply 4302/04/2013

If the gaylings don't want to grow old, they should kill themselves at age 30.

by Anonymousreply 4402/04/2013

Think about this gaylings -- right now, at this very moment, all around the world, future hot guys, str8 bros and frat jocks are being born. The ones who are going to be ignore you when you're an elder gay.

So basically, you're already to old.

Hope that puts it in perspective.

by Anonymousreply 4502/04/2013

"'re already to old."

by Anonymousreply 4602/04/2013

R46 you forgot the "Oh, dear."

by Anonymousreply 4702/04/2013

I was watching the local news the other evening, and the report was of an elderly man, 55, getting a DUI in Palm Desert.

Frankly (at 56), I don't care if I'm called eldergay, geezer, old as dirt, walking corpse or whatever. Give me a senior discount and I'm a happy elderly eldergay.

by Anonymousreply 4802/04/2013

OP may have a point, but I'm more inclined to agree with the poster who argued that 'eldergay' is the new 'n**dles.'

by Anonymousreply 4902/04/2013

Bitch, please...

by Anonymousreply 5002/04/2013

You couldn't be more wrong OP. I am 60 years old and very proud to be an eldergay. I've worked long and hard to get to this point and I'm certainly not ashamed of my elder status.
