Comment Of the Day: Ye Olde Sexual Double Standard
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We wrote yesterday about a Army soldier who had been convicted of sending pictures of himself masturbating (and ejaculating!) to a 12-year-old Fort Bend County girl. He talked her into sending her pictures of herself doing the same.
It led commenter Hillary to note the age-old double standard on such things.
If it were a MILF and a 12 year old boy, people on here would say the kid was lucky, because sending naked pictures and pedophilia are only wrong when it is committed by a man against a young girl.
Well, maybe not a 12-year-old boy, but change it to 16 and she has a point.
