Hey F&F Folk!

I posted this in off topic and thought you should see it, I really wanted your input:

I sent this to Comedy Central today, if you saw the show and agree with what I said then I suggest you do the same. I didn’t take the time to ‘craft’ a really good letter to them because I’m sure it will be dumped in the big bin of too many letters to read, but I think it gets the point across.

Quote:


Last night during the Daily Show, Jon Stewart commented on the Mary Kay Letourneau case where a 34-year-old female teacher had sexual relations with a 12-year-old boy. Jon made a joke that the boy’s name should be “Lucky”

Although he made it sound funny, it is no joke. Would Jon or his writers call a 12-year-old girl lucky if she was having sex with a 34-year-old male teacher? I don’t think so.

This is taken from the MaleSurvivor website and can be found @ http://www.malesurvivor.org/myths.htm

“In reality, premature or coerced sex, whether by a mother, aunt, older sister, baby-sitter or other female in a position of power over a boy, causes confusion at best, and rage, depression or other problems in more negative circumstances. To be used as a sexual object by a more powerful person, male or female, is always abusive and often damaging.”

Please use better judgment in the future, I love the show but that was not cool.

I heard a talk show host on the radio the other day saying she thinks it's fine those 2 are getting married now. In a church. People seem to have forgotten that Mary Kay was married and had 3 young children when she started abusing that kid. What about those children?
