A Tricky Question, a Disappointing Response.

I'm referring to this question and this response.

And I actually agree with parts of your post - I hated the way the question was phrased as well, and I agree that the assumption that it's automatically creepy for an older guy to be attracted to a younger woman is both sexist and ageist. And, I agree with the many other posters stating the the OP that she handled the situation in a very naive way, and needs to give serious thought to how she sets her own boundaries in situations like this.

This kind of sexual innuendo/attack doesn't belong here.

mary8nne, didn't your mom teach your not to take gang bangs from frat boys in college? You're just an exception though right. Or is that how all chicks from Down Under behave?

Look, I don't at all want to play net-nanny, but this kinda sexual innuendo/attack doesn't belong here, or anywhere. Witty, I tried to ignore this most of the afternoon. But I think you went too far here, and you owe an apology.
