Perhaps we are fascinated by age-gap relationships because it is easy to assume that there will be exploitation and power imbalances with greater frequency. But to me, it shows that in a society where we are taught how to gain, possess, and possess before we are taught how to love and liberate, there are underlying dynamics of power and exploitation. exploitation in many relationships, regardless of the age of the participants. . In relationships where people care about liberation, freedom, and respect, perhaps the age gap doesn’t matter. In 1989, I was a co-producer of 20/20, the weekly ABC news magazine. Five years ago, Barbara Walters gave me my first job as a broadcaster when I was hired as her assistant for the summer. Now, I travel regularly with Barbara to do her important, topical interviews, and am learning from the role of the country’s most famous and influential journalist who is about to turning 60.
As the years passed, I wondered if I would agree to an age difference relationship like I did at 17, knowing what I know about consent is not neutral but Contextual. Can I completely agree to a relationship with someone three times my age? When set like that, no. However, over the years, I describe that relationship—and many relationships I have had with older men—as one of the most cherished and tender in my dating life. my dating. Of course, from time to time, I have experienced unfair exploitation of the power dynamics that come with the age gap, leaving me feeling helpless and humiliated. I’m sure I also tap into my power in relationships sometimes. But this abuse is not a prominent feature of my relationships with older men. In fact, this has been the case in my entire dating history. Like all relationships, some will be right and some will be wrong.
I know that so far I have only discussed same-sex relationships, but there is a reason for that. The fact that gay lifestyles and relationships have become so much more apparent in mainstream culture has probably distorted our ideas of what is acceptable when it comes to age gap in relationships. Think of a relationship like that of Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson. The visibility of these kinds of strangely captivating relationships perhaps confounds the way we envision the power dynamics between the older male and younger female couples we are more used to seeing. However, this assumes that the young women involved in these relationships are also not intentionally exploiting the age gap dynamics. And why shouldn’t they? Just because it’s not a perfect story—because we culturally assume that romance should be fair, just, and morally clean—doesn’t mean this isn’t what happens in real life. reality.
