So, of course, I procrastinated like a dog who doesn't want to 'come' after pooping all over the rug. Being lazy led me to this blog post on old men checking out little girls.
Which prompted an interesting memory of my youth.
When I was 16, an ex-con (no,really) set his 35-year-old sights on me. That is not the worst part.
Being precocious, I went downtown, next to the state capitol building (i.e. full of college educated professionals and elected officials) and conducted a survey.
Was it okay for a minor and an adult to have a relationship?
The women were quite adamant that no, it was not okay.
The men? Were total perverts. Yes, totally fine. *leer* * leer*
I was shocked.
Looking back, I realize some of those adults may have been alarmed at a kid asking that kind of question. There were probably a few people wondering what was going on in my life to prompt such behavior.
Nothing other than a lecherous ex-con, whom I quite successfully avoided.
That, or he violated parole and went back to prison.
