Young netizens should cease to be biased

The young and the aged must respect each other

We often hear news about senior citizens misbehaving with other people. But such news are becoming common also because, compared with senior citizens, youths are much more adept at using social media. Indeed, youths have a much louder say in cyberspace.

Besides, the views of some youths are blatantly biased against the elderly. For instance, some say that generally senior citizens are capricious and prone to take advantage of their age. They even mock senior citizens by saying square dancing is outdated.

It's time the youth and the aged learned to respect each other.
