Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez: “Sexy AF”? Or just “WTF”?

Consider the message below – the txt with which former baseball star Alex Rodriguez apparently won the heart of singer and actor Jennifer Lopez:

“You look sexy AF”

It was reported by the i newspaper online and – feel free to correct me if I’m taking it all too seriously, but is it the right time to be reporting such revelations?

Sure, it may have been wonderful for the couple in question but we are in the midst of a series of scandals in which (in the main) powerful men have been accused of making inappropriate approaches to attractive women.

How would it look if this article was reporting on Harvey Weinstein txting

“You look sexy AF”

to some Hollywood film star? Clearly “AF” means “as f***”, by the way.

How about if it was Stephen Crabb, txting someone he’d denied a job in his office?

How does that look?

Sure, context is everything, but what are we supposed to get from this story?

That it’s okay to send a txt that, on the face of it is at least a little creepy, if the person has just confided in you that she doesn’t have a partner?

That it’s okay to send it if you’re in a position of power – a big star in your field, perhaps?

That it’s okay to suggest that not all such behaviour may be inappropriate, in the middle of a series of scandals in which it definitely is?

Perhaps I’m taking it all too seriously – especially as certain people have chosen to try to make a big joke out of some horrific situations.

Am I? You tell me.
