Elders vs. Seniors

Admittedly, we were hoping to catch the attention of the senior elder blogging community with yesterday’s comic. A-List Elderblogger, Ronni Bennett, made note of the gag – and in doing so, suggested that we use the word “elder” instead of “senior” to describe her demographic. There must be some kind of cultural baggage that comes along with the “senior” term, though it’s the only one I’ve ever known. Is “elder” the new norm? I’d really like to know, as I do respect my elders – and I don’t want to offend them with outdated labels. Steve Garfield’s mom blogs, too! This online universe ain’t just for the young – but the young at heart, as well.
