"Here’s why we should stop: When women refer to themselves as old, we’re cosigning the ageism. We’re feeding it, retweeting it with a '+1,' passing it on like a terrible email forward. We’re agreeing with the lie that we’re more desirable, both to advertisers and to potential partners, when we can check the 18-to-24 age bracket. As Surnow put it, we’re buckling to bull****." -Michelle Ruiz via Vogue
