Though originally "MILF" was "Mother In Late Forties," so it would be inapplicable here.
Never heard that it explained that way. I've only heard it as mom I'd like to fuck.
That was the only way I heard it at first, and I became extremely confused years later when I saw movies like "Young MILFs" and shit.
I was under the impression it was invented by American Pie, but apparently it has been internet slang before that.
The average age for sexual consent world wide is 16 :3
Naturally, this does not mean it's okay to sleep with a 16 year old in country where the legal age is older.
I just felt like mentioning it, because in the UK the legal age of consent is 16 - and here it would just make her a teen mum. Or either a slut or someone without dreams.
Seriously, I don't understand really young mums. It's not like it's highly necessarily to reproduce and it just cuts your childhood short.
Most teenage mothers didn't actually plan on reproducing. The plan was to have sex and they didn't think beyond that.
Yes, but there is contraception and abortion available.
The crap of "but the Church doesn't allow abortion" doesn't work, as I'm pretty certain that the Church doesn't allow sexual intercourse outside marriage as well. I understand some just don't like the idea of it but that's why there are condoms! And The Pill! And the Morning After Pill!
Any girl that says "oh, I wasn't planning on having a baby" needs a slap round the face and an explanation on protected sex.
Again, cynical about this - my Aunt and Uncle look after the children that get dumped by these irresponsible idiots so I really don't have any sympathy towards them.
If I remember right, and I may be wrong, there are some places that will even deliver the morning after pill to your door.
I think a lot of them are reaching out desperately for attention though. Or are just skanks.
A lot of them need a damn wake-up call which is not in the form of a baby!
It doesn't help that there are stupid shows like "15 and pregnant" and others.
I'm sorry, but I don't care if I seem old fashioned; there is an age of consent for a reason, and that's to protect your childhood. I'll admit it is different for guys in a way - but there are still STDs and STIs!
And there are other ways of getting attention. It really gets me, that's all.
I fully agree Nixie. They need to stop throwing kids who are stupid enough to get knocked up that early in life into the media.
I've seen too many kids throw their shit away on having a baby at a very young age, among other stupid shit. My personal favorite; "I started smoking because it was inevitable," in response to me asking why he did. Apparently it wasn't his choice.
Smoking is one of those grey areas. I think peer pressure features heavily in it. My sister started smoking because her 'friends', essentially told her she had to if they wanted to hang out.
But really, it's still not much of an excuse. In my sister's case, she could have just dropped them - they didn't stay friends.
The "it was inevitable" is bollocks though. It's inevitable that I'm going to die, doesn't mean I'm going to help that along.
Not all of us are 'skanks'. Some of us were in abusive relationships or date raped. The father of my child threatened to kill me if I gave up my baby. Obviously a lot of teen moms got pregnant because they weren't careful, but there are some of us who take a baby seriously.
Where I'm from we call that a SURE THING.
This comment wins.
In my state, as long as it's not taped... it's not jail bait.
