I didn’t know.

Ashton Applewhite, a leading activist and shaker-upper in the You’re-An-Asshole-If-You’re-Ageist world, quoted me in her book This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism.

Of course, I do know of Ms. Applewhite. I’ve heard/seen a handful of interviews with her, read articles about her, watched her Ted Talk a few years ago. On my business blog, I linked to the announcement of Ms. Applewhite being named Next Avenue’s 2016 Influencer of The Year.

What she read:

Going Nutty Over Older Women’s Bodies by Chuck Nyren (Huffington Post)

What she wrote:

So, I guess I’m just …… too cool.

Troublemaker.
