Double standards. What do you think about 20-year-old Maddy Coz tweeting the following about David Beckham's 10-year-old son: "Romeo Beckham, you're like ten and so hot!" and then people slating paedophile-hunter Stinson Hunter for suggesting that she was inapproprite?
Hunter's argument urged people to imagine that a man was saying that to a 10-year-old girl. He merely reversed the roles and asked if people would be as justificative of the hypothetical male poster. I think Coz could have said something like, "Romeo, you're a handsome boy, you must take after your father and will be a ladies' man when you're older." This would be appropriate. But people seem to think that only male paedophiles exist. Imagine the uproar or the suspicion that would arise if a heterosexual man merely tweeted the following about a prepubescent girl: "You are so pretty, you'll definately be a fox when you're older..."
No, I know when they are acting really inappropriate around me. If they get really close within my personal space, are starring at me with really inappropriate looks, if they have an instrument in their hands and they are playing it while getting too close, or like on the bus or train when guys will intentionally sit right next to me or across from me and when there are empty seats available. A few times I have been asked if I am available, and I said NO. Even if I wore a purple shirt with a black triangle shirt in the middle of it (symbolism of anti-romance), I still don't think they would leave me alone.
If a guy really wanted to be platonic friends with me, rather than acting like a complete idiot in front of me, why doesn't he at least try be civil in front of me?
