In the articled entitled “Labeling and the Onset of Old Age,” James M. Henslin discusses the contributing factors that spur people to apply the label of “old” to themselves. First, Henslin describes how biology makes people call themselves old because of signs of aging, such as wrinkles. The writer mentions that another factor is an individual’s history or biography; accidents may cause limited mobility or other circumstances in life give self-concepts of being old. In addition, he points out that gender, age, and the relative that a culture places on men and women are interpreted as signs of being mature or old. For example, for individuals who marry with a great age difference, people assume that the woman is younger. Finally, Henslin concludes that signals of aging in society, such as birthdays, are traditions that make people feel old and cannot be controlled.
