OT-Now statatory RAPE is FUNNY...
      #784071 - 04/30/12 02:13 PM

Picture a movie about a 30+ year old teacher, seducing and having sex with a 12 year old girl. The girl gets pregnant, and the guy goes to prison. The story is about the girl raising the child on her own. Sounds like a lifetime drama of the week, right?

Nope, see, the GENDERS are reversed, its a FEMALE teacher, a young teen BOY, she gets pregnant, and guess what, its a COMEDY, starring Adam Sandler called "That's My Boy".

Really? Feel free to correct me. Was the mother a TEACHER? Was the father an UNDERAGE student? Sounds like statutory rape to me.

It takes place 30 years later. It is about the relationship between a playboy father and nerdy son

It looked fairly amusing to me.

Of course it does, because female on male RAPE is HILARIOUS. It is that mindset that leads boys to NOT report rapes, because they are embarrased at the societal outcome and how they will NOT be respected as victims.

I speak from PERSONAL experience on this issue and I ASSURE you its not all fun and games.

And I thought it was because Adam Sandler looked rather ridiculous in it. Who knew?

Now statatory RAPE is FUNNY...

---> Not sure where you got your soapbox, but I found the following:

"That's My Boy stars Adam Sandler as a man named Donny who fathered a son while still in his teens. When the son's mother is locked up behind bars, Sandler is forced to raise his son all by himself. Let's just say he won't win any Father of the Year awards anytime soon.

Many years later, when Donny's son is all grown up and is about to get married, Donny wants to reconnect with him. All those years of bad parenting will come back to haunt him. Sandler's adult son is played by Adam Samberg."

---> OBVIOUSLY they are not make light of the 'statutory rape'...the biological mother is in prison for her crime. However, the creation of the child is NOT the story line, but Sandler's character's parenting skills (or lack thereof).

If you air your dirty linen in public, expect people to comment on the skid marks!

Well, if he was a WOMAN, he wouldn't be held to that standard.
