This. I was trying to find the words to frame my thoughts and I think you’ve come close. It seems to me there is an odd tolerance for women saying sexually suggestive things. It’s almost as if people find it “cute”. The whole idea that a woman Diana’s age can still be “ornery” is seen as endearing. IMO Less seriousness is afforded innuendo spoken by women. Is because women are not seen as a sexual threat? I was made uncomfortable by her comments to Sam on stage and yet kind of admired her for having the guts to say them. Was she inappropriate? Probably. And yet, everyone laughed. Even after all this conversation, I’m not sure where the line gets drawn!
