Demure from Innuendo?  
I'm a pretty childlike and naive woman. At 31 years old, I've yet to figure out how to firmly but kindly fend off (or better yet, prevent) sexual come-ons from men. I dress very modestly and am a confirmed and pledged celibate. And yet, every few days some man will find me on the street, or at my job, or at the gas station and proceed to foist his opinions onto me. I don't find such come-ons flattering. I loathe them and fear them. I want nothing to do with the world of sexual politics, of flirtation and debauchery. How can I say to that world, "Leave me out of it!", shy of cutting my face off?

Suggestions? Strategies?

I just wish there were some kind of lapel pin that universally exempts one from jaunty interpelations of sexuality... Some kind of off button for men who think they're paying a complement, but are really making me lose sleep.

One thing I know is that I'm too meek about fending this stuff off. Yet, I don't want to start any issues, just kindly shut down such attentions.

Thank you!

Hello Andrew!

Please don't feel sorry for me, as I have a wonderful and fulfilling life of service, prayer, exploration, and play. Others are not so blessed.

Escape? Yes, perhaps we want to escape. I would like to escape from unwanted sexual advances, especially when I've repeatedly informed someone that I'm not interested in such dalliance. This is not a bad thing to escape from. :>

The world is indeed worth being fascinated in. To live fully with childlike eyes, tempered by wisdom of age, we can continue to make each day special, a cherished moment to be grateful for. Wanton sexuality can take us from that state of grace, and as such is often actually an "escapism" from the awe of the universe that is our birthright.

I, too, would rather just keep discovering, exploring, adventuring, learning. Growing. Alive.

P.S., Q-bert is totally radical.
