Well, first of all, I did have an idea of how old Rilch is, generally, but to me at 52, anybody younger than 40 (i.e. "premenopausal") qualifies as a "young woman". If you crawled inside my mind to practice your ESP and got that I thought she was an idjit teenager with nothing profound to say, you might wanna rethink your vocation as telepath.

Second, anytime someone opens a MPSIMS thread with an emotional title--such as, for example, "I think I've ruined my boobs"--I believe we are entitled to assume that the OP is talking about her body on something other than a "purely practical" level.

Keep yer "tsk tsk" for somebody who needs it.
