Dirty old man sues 19-year old for shooting him down!

That headline ain't no joke, folks.

Rolf Eden, a 77-year old German who is apparently especially invested in his image as a Playboy (you know what? One Hugh Hefner in the world is enough, thanks), is suing a 19-year old woman for refusing to sleep with him.

The reason given for this lawsuit? Ageism.

Apparently, after a night of wining and dining, the 19-year old and our boy Rolf ended up back at his place, where his attempts to get down and dirty were rebuked, with the woman saying he was too old for her.

Rather than, say, accepting the fact, or even putting his tail between his legs and moving on, he is adamant that she could have simply turned him down without reference to his age, saying "After all, there are laws against discrimination."

He attempted to justify his lawsuit in a statement to the media, saying "That was shattering. No woman has ever said that to me before. I was crushed."

I kind of wonder if she may have been put off not only by the creepy Grandfather factor, but by the fact that he has been quoted as saying "I would like to die as I have lived -- on a woman." Quite the opportunity that presents!

I'm glad to see that Rolfy-boy considers his sexual desires to take precedence over a woman's right to choose her partner. It's all about equal opportunities, ladies!

Age discrimination is about a job. If he continues down this path of age discrimination, then our fair young lady has the right to press not tortious, but criminal allegations of lewd and wrongful solicitation and criminal sexual conduct against him.

Rolf will still have playboy status in the pen, there are many 'on the inside' who would see to that, I'm certain.

With the way the legal system works nowadays, he'll probably win.

Well, another useless lawsuit. Anyone can refuse to sleep with anyone they choose. Even husbands & wives. Its not only about the women, but men can do it too! The worst someone can do in such a situation is ask for a divorce. That's all. Not get a million bucks out of the other person!

I expect this to be thrown out of the courts immediately!

Heh!

If he wins, does she have to put out by law?

Unbelievable.

Rolf is looking more and more foolish.

Airam said...

Not for anything but why the hell is she going out on a date with a senior citizen for anyway!!! If his age was a factor she should never have gone out with him in the first place. I guess she thought she could pull an Anna Nicole.

Ant said...

People can bring the craziest lawsuits (no win, no fee!), the fact that it gets headline status is slightly depressing, as the fact that it's complete toss is so very apparent.

However. I have kind of made it known that I would really like to die in a similar manner - namely being squeezed between the strong thighs of a Russian assassin that looks strikingly like Famke Janssen. If this happens when I'm an old man, so much the better...

When a young 26-year-old expresses such sentiments people seem to not have too much problem with this. It's when the dude actually turns old that folk start to get creeped out...

Ageist bastards.

Law suits make me sick and Rolf is in desperate need of a haircut.

Mim said...

ew. and holy geez whast is wrong with people? I hat epeople who do things like this solely for the attention.

brandy said...

Airam said what I was going to say. Why was she dining with him in the first place?

libby said...

OMFG - has has GOT to be joking. wow. i cannot believe this is actually happening!

and to think people's tax dollars are paying for this shite!

QueenBee said...

Seriously, I wish this guy's balls weren't all shriveled up, so I could kick them! What in the heck! There are no laws pertaining to who you sleep with and who you don't. But I shudder to think that this guy is attempting this because his lawyers think he can win. I sure hope he doesn't. I'll cry for the legal system if he does.

""That was shattering. No woman has ever said that to me before. I was crushed."

Hah! I wonder how shattered he would have been if she told him what she really thought! Sounds to me like saying he was too old was a nicety!

Beth said...

There's an expression for lawsuits like this (I think it's an actual legal term) - "frivolous and vexatious."

Get over it, Rolf. Or get used to it. Either one.

I like the new title on this one. Not to mention the responses it's gotten have me cracking up.

I'd love to see this one written up in The Onion. They'd have a sarcastic field day with Rolfy boy.

Sheila said...

1st: Eww!!
2nd: Seriously??
3rd: The judge in this case should throw it out as a frivolous lawsuit.
4th: She should sue for sexual harassment.
5th: Still Eww!!

The Lisa Show said...

Of all the stupid things to do after being shot down... haha. I wonder what he thinks this lawsuit is doing for him.

Psycgirl said...

I get that his lawsuit is stupid, but why did she go on the date in the first place then?? She did kind of use him.

Jocelyn said...

Ah, to be the judge in that case.

What about her countersuit of egotistical pain-in-the-ass harrassment?

Brings to my mind a story from, oh, 5 to 7 years back in a working/middle-class suburb of Minneapolis where I am editor of a weekly newspaper. A 30-something man, residing long-term at a local motel, called police to report that he felt Britney Spears* (what, maybe 19, 20, 21 then) was stalking him because he had refused to go out with her. I read a write-up of the report at the PD, and of course had to publish it. * Pre-crazy, and really rather hot back then ...

Princess Extraordinaire said...

How funny is this? His ego is shattered but I bet he will go on withhis stash of Viagra and shag a few more ladies due to pity...

Hmm, if he wins, I wonder if I can use this approach on the yummy 21 year olds that think that this 30 something is too old. :)

Ok, I jest. I don't think I could manage a 21 year old...but I thought I'd give a new spin to all your other comments.

choosing our sex partners is one area where we do get to discriminate. truth is stranger than fiction.

Crushed by Ingsoc said...

What a handsome, sexy man!

How could any woman turn him down!

He won't win, but I guess it has enhanced his reputation.

Michelle said...

are you freakin kidding? this guy has some nerve.

Ashley said...

This is the first time he's ever been rejected?? I find that hard to believe. Someones head groweth a little too large.

Pretty ridiculous! But I agree with Airam, why was she on the date with him in the first place?!
