Does Being Sultry Creep Anyone Else Out?

This is probably just me, but every time I see a Veronica Mars commercial on UPN they have actress Kristen Bell (who plays the aforementioned character) jutting and leaning in a somewhat provocative manner. Though Kristen Bell will be 25 years old on Monday, the character is only 17 years old.

I find it discomforting when a teenage character is looking ... provocative. Maybe this feeling is due to being around so many daughters lately and I have a natural paternalistic motive of wanting to inform them how bad guys are. Amazing more teenagers aren't killed by their own social awkwardness. If, a big if I know, I ever have daughters I'm making sure they have hand-to-hand combat training for bad touches.

"Okay son, when you meet the cute redheaded girl next door make sure you give her the respect she deserves."
"Now daughter, when the guy does something you don't like you just do THIS LITTLE MOVE on him and he's down for 5 - 10 minutes easily. Oh don't worry it doesn't cripple the guy permanently, but he'll be sore for a bit."

Maybe it is a good thing I'm not married.
