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.
