This thread is unusual, but it raises a valid point.
At 50 years old, I am mostly grey. This is a hereditary thing that I, out of 4 siblings, was the only one "lucky" enough to get (and I'm the
youngest, go figure).
I dye my hair, because my hair wasn't a pretty silver, it was a yellowey-grey. I had two choices: Wash my hair with some shampoo which would silver
my hair, or dye it. I decided to go with dye.
If the fecal matter hits the fan, yeah, I'll have a skunk stripe until it grows out. Will I be discarded? I don't think so. Older women have some
excellent home skills that younger women lack. Oh, the younger ones will be used for breeding, and that's fine with me, I'm done with that.....but
if you want an excellent meal made with plain ingredients, enough to feed a huge family, have your clothes repaired, have a blanket or sweater made
from spare yarn, or somebody to garden, I have those skills. I'm also a fairly good person when it comes to home doctoring.
We older folks have skills and remember how to do things. Younger people, raised on technology, will be found lacking in the basics. There is room
for both, IMHO.
