Discrimination Against the Elderly, Ninety Percent of the Landlords Refused to Rent Houses Out to the Elderly

Ageism, discrimination, or whatever the HELL you want to call it is still fine by me, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

Mr. Sun who is seventy-eight years old currently, who lives alone in Wanhua District, because of his living conditions being too awful, to damp, he’d fallen in his bedroom five times, causing his spine to displace, and he has difficulties walking.  He’d tried finding a brand new, better place to live in, but, when he’d called up the landlord, he heard that it was him, and the landlord hung up on him right away.

Mr. Sun not getting a brand new place is NOT an isolated case.  Wu, the CEO of the R.O.C. Elderly Welfare Foundation pointed out, that the rental market’s discrimination toward the elderly had become normal now, ninety-percent of the landlords refused to rent to elderly.

This, is totally B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T!!!  I mean, sure, the elderly may have more difficulties, but, that’s still NOT valid enough a reason, to NOT give them the equal rights you would give to someone who’s a lot younger, is it?  And this, is still very B-A-C-K-W-A-R-D-S, and, yet, we are, already, IN the 21st Century, and, you will grow old one day too, what then?  Would you want someone to discriminate against you too?  Have some empathy here, and I still get that the concerns from the landlords are warranted, but it’s still NOT valid enough a reason, to NOT rent to the elderly in the population.
