Term OAP ‘patronising’

Have your say

ON THE County Times front page of August 4 there was the headline ‘Flasher targets OAP’. What’s wrong with the word ‘woman’?

The term ‘Old Age Pensioner’ or ‘OAP’ is patronising and humiliating.

It sets all people over the age of 60 apart into one homogenous group, not quite members of society at large, a class to look down on.

How would you like it?
