*sniff, and peek to see I've gotten any sympathy yet*
I am going to point out the obvious. You are far more likely to get objectified and sexualized by the likes of me than the walking prune or Watson.
I will expand this a bit further. If I drop a pen in front of the three of you and while picking it up I get goosed, depending on who did it, it is either flirting or sexual harassment and criminal assault.
Same act by different people has different outcomes.
*shrug* Hypocrisy I know, but life can be so unfair.
What if it's an awkward case of the Orient Express where we ALL did the deed?
Just kidding. I need to be pretty sure that it won't be minded before I do any goosing or anything else'ing of anyone. I will sneak a look at your ass though, I mean, I'm only human. I'll stop there, or we'll have to go to the sex thread.
I am willing to bet that if Twatson had been groped by Dawkins, Elevatorgate would never have happened. Instead, she made up a story about being still being sexually attractive, and her hero mocked her.
Well, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. etc. etc. and the rest is history.
Imagine even further, if poor Dawkins got a "yes" from Watson. Talk about next day regret. I think he'd have it!
