  1. For those who are checking out the link, the relevant section starts at exactly the 5:00 mark.

  2. It’s hard to say that Savage’s “take it on a case-by-case basis” advice is helpful enough for most of us. One thing that I like is that he points out you have to weight the possibility of inappropriate behavior against the likelihood that one could stigmatize or out your child or their crushes.
