How Young Is Too Young?

I’m maybe going to lose a few friends on this one, but it’s something that really bugs the shit out of me…

Hot girls, and the men who find them attractive.

I know. There’s nothing wrong with hot girls. Why should I get my panties in a wad? (It’s to soak up the ball gravy in real life.)

I said “GIRLS”. As in high school girls.

I can hear the collective “Uuuuuuhhhhhhhh” from here. The stares, and the prayers are burning a hole in my heart. I know what you’re thinking. “That’s dirty. They are only naive, young girls. You shouldn’t look at them that way. You need help.”

No I don’t. You do.

You’re the one with the stigma about good looking, young girls being taboo to look at. To think of. To dream about. You’re the one who takes the high moral ground, and says what’s right and wrong when it comes to what age is acceptable for beauty, sexiness, or the body to be talked about. I have been reprimanded several times by people (not always women, either) for remarking on a girl’s looks, as if I can help how hot someone is.

Me: “Oh, wow. Would you look at that? She is gorgeous.”

Them: “Fuck dude, she’s like 15”

Me: “Yeah, I don’t know how old she is. So does being 15 make her ugly?”

Them: “No, but she’s like 15. That’s like statutory rape.”

Me: “Whatever. I didn’t say I was going to try and fuck her, I said she was gorgeous. You don’t look at her and think she’s beautiful?”

Them: “Yeah, she’s beautiful, but she’s only a teenager.”

Me: “So? That has nothing to do with beauty.”

Okay, for the record, I’m not saying it’s okay to leer and ogle these girls, even if their shorts are so small and stretched that they scream “I WILL POP LIKE A BALLOON IF I GET SNAGGED ON SOMETHING”. It doesn’t matter if they have targets on each of their pert breasts. You can’t stare at them, but if you happen to look at every girl that walks down the street, like I do, you are bound to see some absolutely beautiful ladies that are under the age of 18. You will look at them and think to yourself that she is a beautiful girl, with a smoking hot body, and if only you were 25 years younger, you would surely try to breed her.

If you find someone attractive, then they are attractive. Case closed.

Why should you be ashamed that someone’s looks appeal to you? Isn’t that what girls get all dressed down for? The mini skirts, the low-cut shirts, the short-shorts, they are wearing them for something, right? There is no other reason to wear some of the stuff that they do, except to attract attention.

Q: What purpose do these clothes serve? A: To tantalize. Q: Would she be uglier if she was 16? A: Nope.

I wish I could make people understand that a pretty girl is a pretty girl, and as long as you understand the difference between finding someone attractive, and rubbing your pecker on their back when they are watching the Santa Claus Parade, then what could it possibly hurt? Is it going to make you into a pedophile by admitting that people can be beautiful at any age? Of course it’s not. If you act on any desires with a grade nine, and you are over  18, then you are probably going to get your ass labelled right there. Let them grow up and experience things. Do what’s right, not what you want to do. If you find the urges are taking over, go and see someone. There’s help out there if you need it.

Look at Hermione from the Harry Potter movies. She is a beautiful girl. She’s 22 now, but she wasn’t 22 in this photo.

Seriously. She’s gorgeous.

I don’t know how old she is here, but she’s very pretty in my opinion. Don’t you think so? I remember seeing her in the first movie and thinking that she was a pretty girl. Not in a sexual way, but she had a very cute face. Unique looking, if you will. I mentioned it to my friend, and he seriously got freaked out, because she was 11 in that movie. I explained that I wasn’t sexually attracted to her, but that I found her cute, and that she was probably going to grow into a beautiful girl. He told me not to ever say that out loud again.

So I guess there is an age where you can say that someone is pretty or cute. Sorry girls. I guess that when you come out with your new pants or hair colour that you got for your birthday and as if you look pretty, I can’t respond with “Yes, you look really pretty.” or “Wow, you look so beautiful” anymore. I’m not even allowed to think it because you are 11 and 9.

Well, I’m not buying into it. You are the prettiest girls in the world, right behind your mom. I almost always crack a big smile when you get off the bus and come running for the van. Partly because you seem so happy to see me, but also because I look at your cute faces and think of how sweet you two look with your big smiles. I can’t help that I feel that way, just the same as I can’t help but fall in love with your mom every time I look at her. It’s not my fault that something happens to me when I look into her eyes. It’s not a sexual thing. There’s all kinds of time for that. It’s simply what I find beautiful, and I don’t care that she’s over 40 now. I thought she was cute as hell in high school, and I bet I find her cute as hell when we’re in our 60’s too.

I leave you with one of the many excellent clips from an amazing movie that was instantly on my favourites list. This movie screamed to me to watch it dozens of times, and Natalie Portman is a huge reason. She was 14, but playing a 13 year old. At no point did I picture her naked, kissing me, or dancing seductively, but I found her very attractive, and secretly wished for her to be older by about five years.

You should watch that movie if you’ve never seen it. It’s a great cast, and so well written, but it’s the flawed characters that will keep you entranced throughout. Flawed like me.

Where it began, I can’t begin to knowing, but then I know it’s growing strong,

  1. I get what you’re saying, for sure.
    When I was teaching, I could tell which of my students were going to grow up to be handsome men & good looking women, but it doesn’t mean I was going to molest them! I had a long standing joke that I had with myself (shut it, I do that) called the “call me in 10yrs” joke, since my students were mostly 12-14yrs old. I thought it was funny.

    • OMFG. You’re a pervert. Haha, just kidding, kind of. I mean that you’re a pervert, but not for that. I’m glad we’re on the same page on this, and many other things. *wink*

  2. Ah, dude. Listen, you have some serious balls writing this. You have said what I have been trying to say for so long. The thing that kills me is the double standard. The Girlfriend is always like… “OMG look at that young fit body – nothing wrong with that” when she sees some random jock high school boy. I take a gander at the cheerleader captain in her short skirt and think, damn, I wish I was 16 — think it… not say it… and suddenly I’m a perv. Its all natural… all human nature. Girls grow up to be women and women are God’s gift. You said it straight, don’t leer, ogle or rub your pecker on them… just appreciate them… and wonder why they didn’t look like that when you were their age! Good post.

    • Thanks, my brother from another mother. It’s always bothered me, but whatever, right? Everyone thinks it. This post came about from having coffee with my wife and Gadget. This knockout blonde with probably a 36D cup and amazing ass walked in to Timmies and I saw nothing but the body. I said “Holy shit, that’s just mmmmm” He said “She’s 13.” I said that there’s no way a 13 year old can have a body like that, and my wife agreed, but pegged her at 15 or 16. I said “Oh well, she’s still smoking” and then regaled them with my theory. I feel sorry for that girl’s dad.

  3. I get what you’re saying. We can all appreciate the beauty in people no matter what age. And in doing so, it doesn’t mean that you want to get up on that. There are plenty of times I have seen a hot 16 year old girl with an awesome body and thought ‘Dammit! Why didn’t I look like that at 16!!!’ Probably because I would’ve turned into an even bigger slut, and would’ve tried to seduce my teachers for an A.
    People can be gorgeous at any age; But, I can understand when people get all uncomfortable talking about it, due to the huge influx of perverts in our world! Dirty, dirty perverts.

    • I hear ya, slut. I think you need to write a post on the levels of sluttiness in our filthy, perverted world. This comment made me LOL while I was taking a dump. What a mess that was.

  4. The first time I met Mrs.B’s nephew I thought, “My goodness! That is one goodlooking kid!” I didn’t want to jump him. Beauty is beauty no matter the age. Are we not to say “what a cute baby!” because it means we want to do nasty things?

    And what about seeing an older woman and says “WOW! Fucking beautiful!” Is that bad too? How about if an older person says someone our age is beautiful? IS that so wrong?

    Beauty is beauty. No matter the age.

      • I do like boys. Just not “that” way. I thought all the kids were beautiful! I had fun getting to know all of them. And know as in “befriend” not the nasty pervert way.

        And for the record, most pedophiles are not gender specific when it comes to thier victims.

        • OK. I do admit to watching gay porn. Man on man. Woman on woman. So long they are adults doing nasty things to each other, I don’t care.

          MMM Nasty things.

          • I totally understand the girl on girl, but why would you want to watch two guys swordfighting it out? It’s a dirty, brutal battle of grunts. (Yes, I watched Brokeback Mountain)

          • I read a lot.uf

            And I am not sure why man on man actions gets my motor running. It just does.
            Does that makes me a bad person?

          • It makes you EVIL. Muahahaha. Well, in my prison dreams it does, anyhow. In my meat dreams, anything goes.

  5. I have a 13yo niece. She’s beautiful, and will be a heartbreaker soon. I took her clothes shopping 2 weeks ago, and people thought we were more than uncle and niece. I was getting dirty looks left and right.

    I believe there is a difference of someone being attractive and being attracted to someone. A lot of people don’t see the difference. That being said, stars like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus bother me, because there were pervs left and right celebrating when they turned 18… That seems a little, well, ‘off’ to me.

    • Miley Cyrus is 18? Woo fucking hoo. Imma bust open the good whiskey tonight. I’m guilty of the celebrations too, but for me it was the Olsen Twins. I don’t kid myself though, I know they won’t be posing for Playboy until they’re all used up, and can’t earn a living.

  6. I agree with you and I agree with the six fingered monkey. And you know how that drives me crazy.

    I get what you’re saying — you’re saying it better than I can. But I still feel dirtier for having read this. Where does Mrs. Birdman weigh in on this?

    • She totally understands, and also feels the same way. I often catch her calling 12 year old boys “Handsome” or “Cutie”. Being a photographer, she sees more people in a flirty setting than most people. (Except for maybe strippers)

  7. The two stand and admire a pretty girl. The one saying”don’t ever say that again” is the first of the two to have sexual thoughts toward her.

  8. I completely understand! I’ve thought the same thing about boys (“he’s a cute boy. When he grows up, he’ll be hot.”) as well as girls. One of our friends has daughter who’s 16. She is beautiful. Stunning. Obviously, me thinking this doesn’t make me a lesbian. Just as me thinking a 15 boy being good looking doesn’t make me a pedophile. So, to the idiots who say you’re in the wrong – just punch them in the throat.

  9. People at any age can be beautiful. But there’s a difference between noticing someone is attractive and being attracted to them. Perving on or hitting on underage boys and girls is pedophilia and its wrong. Im still young and just got out of my teens…There were several times when I spotted guys over 25 perving on me or trying to hit on me back when I was 14-17… That made me really uncomfortable and creeped out!! In fact, every teenage guy and girl Ive ever known was creeped out or disgusted if they noticed someone much older leering at them or trying to hit on them. That type of behaviour is clearly wrong. Is it wrong to notice that someone is cute and might grow up to be handsome/pretty? NO. Is it wrong to say “I would hit/tap/f**k that”? YES (and you’re probably going to scare the poor youngster).

    • You are exactly correct, but what you are saying applies at any age, as does most of this post. No one should feel uncomfortable, and I’m sure that the leering would make a girl feel pretty creeped out.

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting. Not many people take the time to do that and I appreciate it.
