We are not amused.



A recent IM exchange:
Random 23yrold: Hey, cougar.
Ginger: Uh, what? Did you call me a cougar?!
Random 23yrold: HEHE ROWR what's up
Ginger: Kid, I am 35 years old. A cougar is old enough to be your mom.
Random 23yrold: Sorry dude
Ginger: Go hit on women your own age KTHXBAI.

Bepenised readers, if you want to hit on a woman, do not call her 'dude', and do not talk to her as if she is Stiffler's Mom - especially if she is under 50. That is all.

I just spent 4 months in Cambodia, working the neonate wards. You'd be pleasantly surprised at the number of 12 year old mothers. Some 35 year olds are great-grandmothers even! Granted they look 80!

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH! That upsets me. Thank you for reminding us why education, economic opportunities and birth control are such important issues for women.

Apologies.
I did not mean for you to wince. I meant only to elucidate the potential for a 12 year difference in age to be one of 'cougar/boy-toy'.
I did engage in slight hyperbole as well. My translator, Ms. sambo Hol (The Western connotation of her name was, and still is, completely lost on her) is a 26 year old female and represents the new 'Cambodian Woman'. Now if we can only keep the 50ish white males out of the country, we will have come 'a long way baby'!

I particularly like the "HEHE ROWR what's up?" line. That's wit and sophistication, right there!

This brings back memories from my short teaching career -- of 13 yr-old middle school boys built like linebackers going "wassup, shorty, wanna hook up?" They added zest to their come-ons with slurpy, noisy kissy puckers.

And my friends wonder why I'm still single.

Linnaeus, the best thing about a 23 year old is definitely NOT the scintillating conversation.

Letty, I think we need to bring corporal punishment back into schools if underage boys are calling their adult female teachers 'shorty.'
