Things are always more complicated than at first they may seem.
Look deeper and you may catch a glimpse of the truth.

And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.
Also in a mixed-gender group, when women talk 25% of the time or less, it’s seen as being equally balanced. If women talk between 25% and 50% of the time, they are seen as “dominating the conversation.” One of the most mind-bending statistics I ever read in college.
if you’re in your 20s and you’re defending your right to chill with fuckin 14 year olds in any way that doesn’t resemble a chaperone, consider this: you’re a grown ass adult, the fuck is wrong with you
and as an addendum if you’re an adult in a mixed-age social circle it’s not enough to just not be actively trying to interact in non-chaperonly ways. you need to be willing to be the chaperone. a lot of fandoms draw crowds that start pretty young and if you’re One Of The Adults you need to be willing to keep an eye out for the kids’ safety and you need to hold the other adults accountable for their behavior.
additionally: if you are in your twenties and you’re still dating high schoolers, you seriously need to reevaluate your life choices. in a big way.
