    @Frompumpkin2cinderella Where I’m from “aunty”, is a compliment. It CAN denote age, but usually it’s not meant in a negative way. I’m curious what “aunty” means in your neck of the woods?

    Well, I'm not in your culture, but in my culture, one possible interpretation would be that she views you as someone strong, mature, admirable, and worthy of the respect she'd give someone older than herself/yourself.

    But what do I know: I call myself an "internet auntie" and "internet granny" pretty often, in a joking way, as an attempt to reassure people that I mean well and wish them well, even when I'm being a little bit frank and lecture-y. 😉 (I'm way older than you, 65, and genuinely gray-haired. It's a great time of life, in my world - especially as a survivor of advanced-stage cancer . . . I don't know why people diss age so much.)

    I really admire you. You're my mom's age and seeing you here rock your biceps in your DP inspires me to work hard. I think I'm gonna talk to my mom about importance of fitness at an advanced age!

    About age- I come from a very agist society. Here aunty is also used my 'boys'(won't call these immature idiots men) to insult women as to imply that we are over the hill and should sit and home and knit and pray! It really sucks

    The smaller cycling shorts are cheaper.
