So with the release of the latest Twilight movie New Moon, I am seeing a lot of women swooning over Team Jacob. Our young werewolf hero Jacob, as portrayed by Taylor Lautner, spends a lot of the movie shirtless.
So we have a lot of 40 something women openly expressing their appreciation/desire for a 17 year old boy and yet the general reaction is "Well, he is hot!!" So the bottom line is it is totally okay.
Yet if I as a 40 year old male were to vocally swoon over say Hermione Granger, as portrayed by Emma Watson
The general reaction would be that I am a sick, disgusting, old pervert who should be locked up, even though she is totally 19.
See, sometimes the double standards work in your favor ladies.
