All this "creepy" stuff is missing the point and needlessly judgmental. Nobody's saying they were attracted to these girls when they were children. They're saying that they're striking now, as adults. It's been a long time, over a decade, since DS9 and VGR ended. A lot has changed, and it doesn't make any sense to keep thinking of these women as if they were still children. They're adults now
, and the thread is about them in the present, not the past. It's ridiculous to say it's creepy to be attracted to a woman just because she used to be a girl. That would make it creepy to be attracted to anyone, ever.
