Gawker Dating

Now that Gawker has a free dating site I can't stop looking at the ads.

Not because I'm trying to get laid, but simply because I've been following/interacting with a lot of Gawker/Jezebel commentators for years - and now I get to see what they look like in real life.

It's seriously weird. People I thought were men are actually women - and vice versa. Some people I thought were really young are in their 40s. Some I thought were in their 40s are still in college.

It's fucking blowing my mind.

Also, I think this is totally radiumhead's way to get laid. If you read the ads from many of the women he is essentially exactly what they are looking for.

It's like the opposite of match.com or okcupid. The average ad from a woman there can be summed up as "Looking for straight, employed dude with a sarcastic sense of humor who actually pays more attention to news events than to new weird indie bands."

Daddy Issues

There's an interesting debate going on in the comments section of Jezebel today.

The deal is a guy had a consensual sexual relationship with his adult daughter. By all accounts it started after she turned 18 and was consensual.

The cops arrested him on incest charges.

The debate is "Well, sounds like she committed incest as well, why was she not arrested?"

Now, my first reaction is "Because what kind of scum bag fucks his own daughter even if she's up for it? Fuck, even John Voight wouldn't go there!"

And, of course, there are the power dynamic issues involved.

That said, it does seem like an argument can be made that she did voluntarily engage in incest and it's unclear if she considers herself a victim.

What do you think?
