    Any type of issue is usually more of an issue on the Internet than in real life. Of course special interest groups and people who tend to be political type Thinkers (politically correctors) are usually more conspicuous than people who tend to be less judgmental.

    The more a person thinks about what they consider to be sexual deviancy are the most likely to engage in the activities they most disapprove of. This is a statistical reality.

    The type of people obsessed with their moral outrage of homosexuality, for example, are the people who spend hours everyday collecting porn on the Internet to prove their point.

    Most people have an abstract notion of what is "creepy", and may agree with the moral pundits; but usually will accept a person they actually know in real life as being what they are, instead of what the most recent Internet memes, religious ideologies, talk show hosts  and politicians marketing their "virtues" preach from their pulpits. The louder the rage, the more likely stormtrooper type organizations will spring up.

    Only psychopathic people obsess, especially about the private relationships and activities of law abiding individuals.

    Source(s): Personal experience, schooling in the social sciences, the non-fake news, etc.

    Because some people think the older 1 is taking advantage of the younger 1. It's really no one else business if a younger female takes an old/older male because he has money to give her things that she may not ever be able to afford, for her making him feel younger again.

    That largely depends on age and gap 

    40 and 60...no problem 

    Girl of 15 and man 25....looks like grooming, and probably is.

      I said age gap not pedophila. 15 year olds arent consenting adults. Please read the question correctly

    i don't obsess about it. If some old dude is so emotionally immature that he has to date 20 year olds, then he does. That's all i think... people are (usually) better off in an age range of 10 years or less. Otherwise, they have nothing in common except sex (as the rule)

    They only tend to do this when the female is the older party.

    Its all about the "PC" world we live in. I do not pass judgment and as long as they are of legal age...enjoy.
