RE: Banter: It's A Badgerling
Sir, I am offended....... You have replied to my offhand comment privately in which you took me to task for encouraging trolling the waters with our young daughters (or sons for that matter) (YOUR comment:"While it is true that young ladies do seem to catch the eyes of young gentlemen far sooner then we might wish (something I dread, since my
daughter is currently only eight), I hardly think it appropriate to encourage trolling the waters with them, until they are at least no longer "jail" bait." )
As well you have posted here to the list accusing me of bragging about the nubile young daughters of the Barony. I never suggested that we should troll the waters with them or allow them to do anything even slightly unsavory. I only was mentioning the fact of life that at around the age of 12 they begin to attract the interest of boys and girls their age who are outside the SCA. This interest might encourage those young men and women to investigate the SCA and perhaps be willing to participate in something that holds the interest of the young lady or gentleman whom they wish to get to know. I also mentioned that this as well was period.....if I remember correctly from my reading, marriages or liasons between persons of that age were frowned upon in period as well as they are today although flirting then as now were perfectly allowed.
If I am to be accused of impropriety in making the observation that the attraction starts long before the age of 18 (tho as the father of a young girl I am sure that this is an unwelcome thought)...you are guilty of worse impropriety in making assumptions not supported and in discourtesy. If I were a man I would demand retraction on the field but as a lady I can only hope to shame you into a retraction of your offensive remarks and a complete apology.

I think it might be inappropriate to BRAG about the shear nubility
(nubile-ity) of our pre-teen and teenage daughters. There is a gesture
my knight makes sometimes, where he bites the knuckle of his index
finger. A number of the "first born" of Stierbach Water cause this
response, ESPECIALLY Count Reynard's daughter, and they are all about
thirteen or fourteen years old. Lady Aerin of the Red Oaks causes much
the same reaction, and I believe Lord Rorick (I hope I'm getting that
right) has such concerns as well.
The simple fact is, young ladies raised in the Society (and some young
men) just seem to catch the eye of the opposite sex far better then the
daughters of mundanity.
Maybe it is just because they learn grace and charm (not to mention, dance).
Appreciatently, but with my knuckle in my teeth.
Lord Leifr the safely married and with a daughter of but eight.
