Why do older men get to be sexy but not older women?

OPINION: How threatened people are by the sight of a sexy older woman.

It's okay for George Clooney to be a sex symbol.

Hell, even at 83 women still find Sean Connery sexy.

Once a woman is past 40, however, it seems everyone feels she should be married, raising children, or desperately trying to procreate, if the treatment of Jennifer Aniston, 45, who is outed as being pregnant every couple of months, is anything to go by.

Look at our own Kylie Minogue.

She's also 45, unmarried, no children.

The breast cancer survivor put out a sexy video for her new single Sexercize the other day and the bloggers have gone crazy, saying she's past it, she needs to tone things down.

If I looked like she does at 45 I'd be flaunting it too, I wouldn't be toning it down - certainly not to satisfy a few jealous critics.

Like most of Kylie videos, it's a bit camp, a bit fun and a bit sexy.

She's clearly enjoying herself, so why aren't we?

Why is it okay for older men to be sex symbols, but not older women?

Why is there a tendency to think older women should hide their sexuality as they get older, when really they are every bit as entitled to embrace it as a 20 year old?

I, for one, hope Kylie shuffles out on a walker one day in a sexy bikini or leotard, or maybe she'll even give the gold hotpants another spin on the dance floor.

No doubt she'll still look gorgeous.

Maybe by then our society will be a little less ageist and a little more capable of having a bit of fun.
