Either way, that's a pretty butthurt reason to drop the whole franchise. Your loss though.
Anybody with eyes and private parts knows what's going on in that scene.

And there's a huge difference between "dating" someone and being "flirtatious," as opposed to knocking somebody around and throwing them against the wall as foreplay. Tony is clearly not enjoying this nearly as much as Szostak is; and if the gender roles were reversed, 99.99% of audiences watching that scene would say it's rape.

Szostak is playing a bad, bad girl. Janet Van Dyne is not a bad, bad girl. Whitney Frost is; Justine Hammer is; Sasha Hammer is; Sunset Bain is; Monica Rappaccini is; hell, even Bethany Cabe can be.
