There is a lot more here than I think a lot of us are perceiving. First of all, as I deliberately bated yesterday, sex is disingenuously being implicated here in ways that try, frustratingly to many, to bridge the gap between Luann’s and Bernice’s nearly preteen relationship with sex and relationships and the uncomfortable fact that they are college women, women who no matter what to paraphrase what a previous deplorable example of American politics, Spiro T. Agnew once said, should eschew the “nattering nabobs of judgmentalism” and make adult decisions and choices about romance and sexuality given their ages, and the range of choices young adults make. I mean men can make all the choices they want, and it raises few hackles, but young virginally portrayed comic woman can’t, at least in Luann. So we get the dance of the hunk and the maybe dismissive and disinterested Luann. I don’t buy it, but then I have faith that this conundrum is about to be surprisingly traversed. Take that as you will, but the stakes are being raised. Patience.
