How many can we name?

I'll start off with...

1. Unmarried couples freely cohabiting / no stigma for being 'illegitimate'

5. More ageism?

Although I don't know but Brexit and Trump being supported by a lot of older people have certainly made some young people not like older people as much.

That's an interesting point. Ageism has always existed in the employment market, but you may be right in saying that, post referendum, there is now more resentment among younger people towards the elderly.

as a 'young person' i kind of agree with that - but it's not ageism as such mostly, a lot of us are just pissed off/confused at the right-wing political views of many of over-60's, and obviously when you know someone has discriminatory or sexist/homophobic views for example, you do tend to lose a lot of respect for them.

Big changes in the relationship between employers/employees. Good luck getting respect at work nowadays in a lot of businesses, before we even get into the culture of expected unpaid overtime and that kind of thing.

Okay this is approaching 60 years now in terms of legislation but attitudes towards suicide. I can't believe that it was against the law in the UK to commit suicide until as recently as 1961! So basically, if you failed in your attempt then you could be prosecuted... which is a pretty vile way to deal with it. Now, society promotes getting help when you are feeling low in this way instead of punishing you, as it should be!

On a similar note, mental health in general. Nowadays it's much more accepted that it's as important as physical health, there is still a long way to go but for example you can have sick days for mental health and a lot of employers are great about it.

Yeah definitely, ageism is the wrong way to put it but there's more of a disparity between views I think that leads to clashes, espeically when older people have tipped Brexit one way and they won't be around to see the full consequences necessarily.

But that requires a default assumption that the consequences will be negative, and that their choice was a selfish one...
