Happy Valentine's Day - Mind the Gap ! In pop culture the age difference in dating, relationships and marriage is labeled as May – December Relationship. And it is usually older men with younger women, the idiom has always been pervert old man, gold-digging younger girl. Witness the Anna Nicole and Chicken Ranger debacle, and of course the more pervy Lolita from Nabokov and the Roman Polansky episodes. The media mantra is want to paint it all with the brush of lecherous dirty old men and cash hungry kittens.
But with nearly all dating stereotypes – what is shameful for the man, seems to always be celebrated and empowering when done by the women. Of primary note that nearly 'Go Get Your Cougar On' battle cry is the Demi Moore / Aston Krutcher event. (Had Bruce Willis hooked up with Lindsey Lohan – the world would have come to an end of cavalcade in celebrity prattle and back talk). The current Cougar / MILF culture, launched from the days of Mrs. Robinson, is in full swing.
