‘Cougar’ Now Part of the Boomer Lexicon
October 8, 2009 | By Kim Walker
Referring to an older (40+) woman who dates younger men, I think it’s time to formally recognize the term ‘Cougar’ as part of the growing boomer vocabulary and further evidence that boomers are going to change the way we think about ageing.
I think it’s great.
If you’re puzzled by all this, take a look at this interview with Courtney Cox (Monica from Friends) about the pilot episode of her new sit-com called, wait for it, Cougar Town.
If it’s good enough for Hugh Heffner and Bernie Ecclestone to brag about their younger dates, its good enough for the ladies. After all, we boomer did fight for gender equality, didn’t we?
