Hi! I was just wondering about your recent answer about seducing writers... One of your suggestions was a bit of alcohol- perfectly innocent intention in saying so, I'm sure, since going to a bar is a nice way of meeting peeps. However, there's sort of a possible (and I'm sure unintended) implication of getting someone drunk so as to sleep with them quicker, which is coercion at the least since being drunk = unable to give consent... Um idk just saying you might want to change your wording?
Nope. I like my wording.
If someone reading it interprets And alcohol may help, too as meaning I think you should get someone too drunk to be able to give their consent, then they are as profoundly mistaken as someone who takes the Or kissing that follows as meaning I’m endorsing making out with people against their will.
Both of these things are obviously wrong things to do. But I kind of hope that I don’t have to explicitly point out wrong things all the time as the flip side of good things, or we will wind up in a bad place where nothing can be said.
