Une Femme D'Une Certaine Age

When did "middle aged" come to mean "over 50, and hell while we're at it, well into 60"? Seriously, folks, how long do you think you're going to live? That is some serious denial. According to the CIA World Factbook, the average life expectancy for a woman in the United States is 80.97 years. That makes "middle age" happen at age 40. Want to give it a range? I'll be generous and give it an entire decade: "Middle aged" could be from age 35 to 45. At 32, I'm closer to middle aged than most women out there wearing it as a label.

I'm not saying if you're a woman over 45 that your life is over, I'm just saying that you have gone onto another adjective, ok? Pick one, any one, just stop clinging so desperately to "middle aged" already.
