There are about 1.4 times more women than men above 60 years of age. We argue that the age distributions’ shapes imply that socio-biological reality ‘hyper-ages’ men by five years beyond their nominal age. Moreover, women present the overwhelming majority in adult education programs for the elderly, outnumbering men by up to ten to one. We discuss relevant social theory and practice, and as an example for empirically scientific social science, show that males are discriminated against in lifelong education efforts, deepening their general discrimination and unhealthy, in relation to this issue literally deadly social isolation. Our hyperaged, exhausted men description renders this work belonging to Advocacy Gerontology: older men are doubly discriminated by ageism. But our practical recommendations do not fix symptoms where it is “too late”. Our general recommendations support truly emancipatory, that is system-theoretical, “Asperger autistic male” theorizing.
