The Judgement of Paris

So a friend of mine posted this up as his status update:

Is it just me but are teh boobs on 14 and 15 year old girls getting bigger than in the day when I was 14 and 15

And the response has been about how little they wear and the decay of morality and kids on the street and how dangerous they are, and how it's growth hormones in the meat, and how they know the effect they have and they like the attention and how men are programmed to be turned on by post-pubescent women and how lots of countries around the world have the age of consent at 14... anything and everything other than admitting personal responsibility. The sense is that once a girl starts to develop breasts, it's not fair for men to have to treat her like the child she still is; and god knows, once menses have started, all bets are off. She is now officially in phwoar land, where it's only natural for men to stick their hands down their pants whenever she is in the vicinity.

It made me recall Romeo and Juliet:

CAPULET […]
My child is yet a stranger in the world;
She hath not seen the change of fourteen years,
Let two more summers wither in their pride,
Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride.

PARIS
Younger than she are happy mothers made.

CAPULET
And too soon marr'd are those so early made.
(1.3.2)

It's incredible that a point well understood in 1595 should be questioned in 21st century Britain.

Perhaps it's his eyes that are getting bigger.

Puberty starts earlier than it used to so would that make 10 year olds fair game? It's a horrible argument when taken to its logical conclusion.

He did mention his mid life crisis... nice guy, but his 50's seem to be bringing out the leery lad in him.

Here are a couple of the comments, as insight into attitudes...

[POSTER 2] : Thing is (okay this is where I hang myself) regardless of the many reasons why / how an underage girl starts dressing up in adult-provocative manner.. end result is.. it's a sexual signal that they are putting out.. knowingly or unknowingly. They may be doing it to show off to their peers, imitating their fav.pop star / celeb, or trying to appeal to their fellow guy/girl they are interested in.. But like a light that once switched on..can be seen by anyone with eye sight (unless everyone walks with eyes closed).. these signals are there for all men and women to see.. While we do our utter best to be noble, honorable, chivalrous ... underneath it all.. personally men are men with all sorts of primal instincts, needs, wants.. It's a good thing some of us (good) guys keep to our own codes of moral behavior.. ones we ourselves set

[OP] You're so right. Girls become aware of teh attention they get through being sexual just like the female of any species does. They are so much more advance3d these days
[...]
[OP] Like it or not , we are programmed to be attracted to post pubesant females as men

[POSTER 2 ] Hia Boot, We are the better-devils you know .. and we're musing the state of things..both within our minds, and what's out there in society's dirty loins! It's the unknown demons out there that we have to worry about.. And they ain't got the honour in their veins.. and are quite happy to inflict moral pains .. on those other little gals & boys, wearing their provocative body-languages and skimpy attires.. Pleading ignorance and underage on their behalf makes no sense.. - because there's education, advise and guidance all around them.. all of which they willingly ignore! Society broke its many barriers in the name of `personal right to express' - Society produced all those other provocative sexy shows on MTV, teen-soaps, thrills, spills, double-bills, and contraceptive pills!! Then Society watched while morality degraded over decades.. and now devils and demons are dancing in the streets in day light.. and none of can can lift a finger to stop them.. Strangers just walk past when violence occurs in streets...parents plead powerlessness to controlling their kids .. and the degradation of society continues. Those are the issues we have to do something about..


[POSTER 3] The one thing I feel society, especially PC society and the' its-your-fault' group seems to ignore is that the conditioning by media and in some cases parental allowance, brings out the reproductive co-attraction early - which causes earlier hormonal responses. I have seen parents encouraging pairings at early ages and young teens already not being 'single'. This brings on peer pressure for the games of attraction. Unfortunately, the type of looks that attract male or females does distinguish age...
Not to mention parents' allowing kids as young as 8 to wear make-up!
