Not sure that women of your age become "invisible". I think you're being too harsh there. Maybe to a lot of younger men, but not all of my gender by any means.This is a brilliant post, I agree with many of the points that you make. Please do not think I am trivialising what you say, but when you reach my age - 56. It is all in the past.
When I was a young woman, I had quite a high libido, I put myself in quite a few difficult situations. I did not value myself very highly. It was only when in 2016, when I went through a surgical menopause, that I began to value myself. But I'm not sure if given the opportunity, I would change things. I chose to live a certain way, but in doing so I became a sex object.
When you reach my age, a woman becomes invisible. I don't feel too despondent, in a way it has set me free. But the harsh truth is, I am no longer looked at, just looked through. I hope I've made some kind of sense.
