Says the person who uses classy terminology like "creepy-ass" and "dude". Actually, yeah I find it pretty offensive that you judge someone to be a creep when you don't even know said person, who is writing fiction of a different place and time. Enjoy your moral outrage. Oh, and while you're at it, I suggest you avoid Nabokov. Clearly also a creep purely because of his subject matter, despite the fact that he wrote one of the greatest English language classics ever, and English wasn't even his first language.
