    am not comfortable with this deception aspect of the whole thing when combined with underage people being deceived.  

    Reading this makes my head spin.  Initially, I don't like the idea of minors being taken advantage of in any way by older adults.  Then I worry about the issues that young people already have dealing with sexuality.  Next, I start to worry about the older transgender person - what is going on for that person.  

    On the surface Wilson seems like a jerk for BSing people, then again Wilson is also in a tough spot.  Wilson certainly would not be the first person in the world to deceive potential sexual partners - that is a hazard of the dating world.  

    People lie about their jobs, their marital status, and all kinds of things to get a chance to be with a person that they find attractive or desirable.  Yet, they get off "scot free".  (I could not resist).

    It is such a deep question as to at what point during dating that any one of us begin to open up and reveal private matters to our partners.  

    It gets on my nerves, and you know how I am about my nerves...

      that sounds like the truth to me, not a lie or deception. People aren't required to give another person their entire history before there can be legal consent.
