Ladies and gentlemen: I am a sexual being, and... waitasecond! Why's everybody running out of the room? Look. I'm not necessarily asking any of you to have sex with me at this very moment (unless the previous statement made you insanely HOR-NAAAY!). What I'm trying to say is, that when it comes to human sexuality, I'm a complicated freak—but if you really want to put a label on me, I'm a booty enthusiast... no matter who's attached to it.
That being said, lately I've been having some very complicated feelings... you know... "down there." (NO, I'M NOT POINTING AT THE DUST BUNNY NEXT TO MY FOOT, I'M POINTING AT MY CROTCH! THE UNIVERSAL SYMBOL FOR "DOWN THERE!" SHEESH!!) And the reason I'm having complicated feelings "down there" is because last week NBC released a photo of Allison Williams (you know, Marnie from your favorite show in the world, Girls) dressed up like Peter Pan. Now, the reason she's dressed up like Peter Pan is because NBC had such great (and improbable) success with their live version of Sound of Music (starring the absolutely TERRRRRRRIBLE Carrie Underwood), they've decided to try it again—by producing a live televised staging of Peter Pan to air in December.
Do I really have to go into why this is an incredibly dumb idea? I didn't think so. Let's just jump straight to the part where Allison Williams as Peter Pan makes my junk tingle.
First of all, Allison Williams is a very attractive lady—we hold this truth to be self-evident. But in the Peter Pan pic released by NBC, she's dressed as a dude... and a super hot dude at that. (Kind of like Justin Bieber, if you didn't want to slap the smirk off his stupid idiot face.) She's wearing this distressed green vest, ripped bicycle shorts, a couple of leather belts, a pair of absolutely adorable boots... and a frayed fishnet t-shirt?? (!!!) PANT PANT AH-OOOOH-GAH! Plus she's sitting on a ship's rigging (PANT PANT) and staring lustfully off into the distance like she's gonna bone the first hook-wearing amputee she sees. (Again, AH-OOOOH-GAH!)
Now the idea of girls dressed up as boys and causing complicated feelings "down there" in boys like me is as old as time itself. However! She's not just any dude... she's Peter mothereffing Pan. And Peter Pan is traditionally, like... what? Maybe 13 years old, tops? The entire point of the story is that he's a BOY who doesn't want to GROW UP. So are you starting to see why my complicated feelings are so complicated? Allison Williams (HOT) dressing up like a hot dude (HOT) who just happens to be 13 years old (NOT HOT!! SUDDENLY NOT HOT!!).
This is not the first time that NBC has tried to trick me into becoming a pedophile. (Remember their show To Catch a Predator? They knew how much I wanted to be on TV... but c'mon! Not that much!) Well, nice try, NBC—but it's not gonna work this time either! Despite Allison Williams' convincing hotness as Peter Pan, I'm going to AVOID your live action musical when it debuts in December... because the feelings I have "down there" are just too complicated. (And by "down there," I mean my "tinkerbell.")
