Not "Allowed" to Look At Pics Of Women

Community Member

I'm 40 years old and like looking at beautiful fashion models wearing beautiful outfits, like elegant evening gowns, swimsuits and lovely silk nightgowns.


Tonight, it was the latter I was looking at; a beautiful woman looking lovely wearing a white silk nightgown with her hand on her hip.


However, my Mum saw the pic and said "STOP looking at women in their underwear. You shouldn't even be looking at that sort of thing!!"

Sarcastically, I responded with "What should I be looking at then? Guys in their underwear?"

She said "Well, that would be more appropriate than women in their underwear."


It was a silk nightgown!!!


But later, I couldn't believe what I overheard her saying to Dad:


"He doesn't even have a girlfriend."

"Maybe he's thinking of starting to wear women's clothes."


And even worse:

"Is he going to be a pedophile next??"


All because of a pic of a beautiful woman in her 30s modelling a silk nightgown!!
