Law and disorder dating
Dunno, but I see it more as a pretty good exposition of a painful dilemma that Janey, a girl with Turner's Syndrome, had.Here's someone in her mid- to upper-teens who has the body of a preteen. There's that "paedophile's dream" again, and everyone would trash the guy as being a paedophile, even if he's genuinely in love with her for who she is, not for what she looks like. Now *she's* the "paedophile", "robbing the cradle" if she's 18 and dates a 12yo-14yo, just so they as a couple would *look* normal. I'm not really a fan of SVU (I'm a LO: CI guy...), but this episode seemed to me to be pretty well-written, and did a good job exposing the pain and angst someone with Turner's can have, the desperation that goes along with it, and the lengths to which someone so afflicted would go, just trying, perhaps in vain, to have something "normal" that everyone else takes for granted, and quite often doesn't even appreciate.Quite clearly this person meant to frighten and intimidate her.Some men even speak frankly about harassment as a motivation.I guess what prompted me to review this ep was the whole idea of "a paedophile's dream" and the user discussion of this ep, which seems to paint it as rather exploitive (reading between the lines, presumably the kissing scene towards the end, of the young girl and older guy).Seems to me that everyone just kinda missed the point.Consider the following story relayed to me during my research: my interviewee, after declining a man’s interest on a popular dating site, described receiving a message from him with a picture of an erection next to a kitchen knife.
It’s essentially cyber-flashing, the real world’s online equivalent, and should be treated as seriously.Do senders really hope to woo a potential date with the equipment on display? In a piece from online lifestyle magazine Refinery29, several of those men interviewed who had sent dick pics said they assumed women would want a nude image of them, because they would be more than happy to receive one from a woman.Perhaps they should have taken note of a survey by which concluded receiving “sexts” is a turn off for women who use online dating – presumably because there is something very unsexy about ignoring the requirement to obtain consent first.Sherrie Hewson, a TV presenter in the UK, recently revealed that after signing up for an online dating website she received an unexpected and unsolicited full-frontal image of her correspondent’s genitals.It’s something many women have experienced online and, although Hewson tried to make light of it she was left feeling shocked, and quit the site.
