Scrump­tious praise

The West Australian - - AGENDA -

I have to agree with J. Gra­ham’s let­ter, A laugh­less PC so­ci­ety (Let­ters, 8/11).

When I was young I would have been flat­tered and de­lighted to be called “scrump­tious” by a fel­low worker.

Girls need to be ma­ture enough to recog­nise when such re­marks or wolf whis­tles are gen­uine ap­pre­ci­a­tion, as op­posed to when they are more sin­is­ter.

Eryn Jean Norvill ap­par­ently is not that ma­ture. It isn’t easy th­ese days for men to know where the line is drawn be­tween ad­mi­ra­tion and of­fence.

D. Hicks, Beck­en­ham
