I get it.Ã‚Â Don’t objectify women.Ã‚Â Respect.Ã‚Â Dignity.Ã‚Â All that stuff.Ã‚Â But really, I think holding 13-year-old kids to the same standard is fine until you start talking 10 years juvenile detention for horseplay.

So, um, today’s winner of the Blahg’s very first “Shut-the-hell-up-and-stop-being-stupid” award.Ã‚Â Sadly, I suspect I’ll have to award it repeatedly now that it exists.
And some people might disagree with me that the punishment is too harsh, doesn’t fit the act, and all that stuff.Ã‚Â It’s OK.Ã‚Â I’m fine with others being wrong.
