You know how there’s always that one friend of your parents who won’t stop telling you that you’d be justÂ perfect for his or her son or daughter? You could be moving across the country, you could be unavailable, you could not even be of the applicable sexuality, but still, they press and press. Yeah, those people shouldn’t be allowed access to a computer, lest they get on the InternetÂ and try to recruit teenagers to bang their kids, as one Philadelphia mom is presently attempting.
In an ad onÂ Craigslist, the presumably well-meaning (albeit incredibly misguided) mother describes her son as being “extremely smart but socially awkward” and “very handsome and extremely fit,” which wasn’t weird to say about your kid whatsoever. Well, actually, it probablyÂ wouldn’t be so strange if not for the part where she then lays out her “plan” wherein she’ll buy four tickets to a concert to create a situation wherein a “19 or under” female (because “20+ would probably freak him out, lol”) will oh-so-spontaneously start talking to him, then eventually — and these are her exact words — “seduce him and take his virginity.” Then keep dating him for a little while and eventually, dump him before he gets to Harvard. The full ad:
Uh, besides the obvious boundary-crossing this poses, as well as the legality issues of paying someone to bone your son, does anybody see the serious possibility that (A) this could put whatever young woman volunteers for the, er, position in danger and (B) this could put her son in danger from somebody whom she hires? It’s not smart, it’s not safe, and IÂ really hope it’s just somebody trolling the Internet.
As of writing this, the ad is still up on Craigslist. So, uh, if you’re in the Philadelphia area and are looking for a completely insane thing to do, here you go. But something tells me an xoJane writer snatch it up first if the rest of us don’t, anyway.
