For the record: I raised several charming young ladies, as well as my 
own kids, in the SCA. There is nothing in that article that I didn't say 
to my crew at one time or another. I think it was well spoken and realistic.

And threatening her father is WAAAAAAAY out of line. She is, as she 
noted, of age. Threats and retaliation are not appropriate, no matter 
who is ticked off. If they don't like the article, they should write one 
of their own.
