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.
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.
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.
