I don't think middle age is despised. After all, given the size of the baby boom generation, about a fifth of the population is middle aged. I am around young people a lot (teaching college and AA) and don't feel despised at all. I feel respected. Recently, I spoke at an AA meeting about getting sober at 49. The next day, this very young woman came up to me in a meeting and told me a friend who had come to yesterdays' meeting with her cried when I spoke. The friend said, if she can get sober at 49, maybe my mom can get sober. We all have so much to teach one another.
