This is the kind of stuff that fuels my self-doubt.
(My abuse wasnt with a women but I was 13)

There's nothing funny about rape and Adam Sandler's new movie 'That's My Boy'
by Dr. Keith Ablow

FAIR USE EXCERPT:
Adam Sandler’s new movie, “That’s My Boy,” should be BOY-cotted by anyone who believes that statutory rape of a 13-year-old is wrong. That sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? I mean, after all, “That’s My Boy” is a comedy that makes light of the seduction and statutory rape of a 13-year-old boy by his pretty teacher -- a rape that results in the birth of a child.

Yet, Hollywood thinks it knows two things:

1) Sex sells.
2) Little boys do not need or deserve the same protections from sexual assault as girls because they actually like it.

They’re entirely right about sex selling, of course. In our almost hopelessly repressed culture just about anything, including a movie with such a sordid premise, can reawaken the sexual feelings we tend to wall off and deny. And yes, those same feelings will get some people to part with a little time and a little cash for a movie.

Hollywood writers, producers and directors are entirely wrong, however, about believing that 13-year-old boys are fair game sexually for adult women because the boys will enjoy going to bed with them.

American TV has satirized tragic events in many TV shows. "South Park" and "Family Guy" come to mind real quick when I think about this topic. No one started screaming when topics like this are made fun of in those shows. It sounds like the writers are trying to poke fun at Mary Kay Letorneau, et al.

I don't think it is anything to be upset about. It will, at the end of the day, bring awareness yet again to CSA.

As for Adam Sandler personally, he is like any other actor. I have seen movies of his I absolutely love like "Grown Ups." I have also seen movies of his that I can't stand like "You Don't Mess with the Zohan."

There is nothing saying that you HAVE to go see this movie. Feel free to exercise your choice not to see this movie.

Brian,
I say this with all due respect because I know your a good guy. But it seems like your dismissing this because your frustrated about the lack of awareness and concern for adult sexual abuse/rape. However as much as you are right about the lack of help, that doesn't mean we should neglect child sexual abuse/ rape and the myths that go along with it. I am for awareness and treatment of all sexual abuse/ rape. Whether it be boys, men, girls or women.

I hope that adult abuse/rape gets the attention it deserves soon

Jason

The "roaches" are starting to feel so secure that they're coming out of the woodwork:

Brian,

Its not only the very damaging myths that this sht perpetuates, but the results as well; such as a victim being WAY less likely to seek help...confusion in the victims framing of what is happenning and guilt/shame if he discloses it as a 'bad event.'

I've known two early teens this happened to (as peers of mine). They were both severely fkd for life. They felt used, forced, manipulated, propelled too fast into an adult realm and shame from many angles.

Its a law for a reason: Children cannot consent, they can only comply and be conned. Anything less than an all-out nuking of this crap is a slap in the face of the survivors here who were abused by older women.
