Brought to you by the letter "p" for "pedophilia"?
 
Voice of Sesame Street's 'Elmo' accused of affair with underaged teen: The man who voices beloved children’s character “Elmo” took a leave of absence, after he was accused of having an affair with an underaged boy, Sesame Street officials said today.

Sesame Street has "officials"? Do they work for the highway department?

Well, he's innocent until proven guilty for one. Two, because one person makes a mistake doesn't mean that everyone involved did the same thing. If that was the case, we'd have to shut down the Catholic Church and Penn State Football.

What does that even mean? Electing Romney would somehow make a difference to an allegation that happened seven years ago? Nice job, trying to bring partisan politics into an issue where it's not relevant.

This story reminds me of Jeff Smith, who pretty much disappeared from PBS and everywhere else after his scandal. Unless he can prove that it's all false, Clash is probably history.

So far, there's been no evidence to prove it's true at all. However,even if no charges ever get filed, his reputation will still be ruined.

I really hope that's a joke, because otherwise, that's really, really sad.

Sore loser, eh?

I know facts can be a pesky thing when it comes to these stories and the ignorance involved is usually biblical which seems to be the case here.

I just saw this story on the beeb. It turns out the teenager involved was 16/17 when this occured and that the age of consent is 17 in New York where this all occured and the authorities don,t even think sex occured till he was 17

Of course this doesn't even cover the fact that this isn't a case of Pedophilia, but as I said, ignorance is usually biblical in these type of stories.

Should we ban sport programs because of Penn State?

This.

Even if he did sleep with the kid when he was sixteen, I don't see it as that big of a deal. It's legal to sleep with him when he's 17 but it's child molestation at 16?.......with consent at that......bullshit.

This question probably classifies under about 8 logical fallacies. Don't be a douche.

Same. Yes he (possibly) did a wrong thing, but he's innocent until proven guilty on this.

I remember that one vaguely.

Why do people seemingly go out of their way to label everything paedophilia? The kid was 16/17, even if this is below the age of consent in the US it's not paedophilia. May have been wrong of him to enter the relationship with a teenager but it may have actually been entirely legal, given there's no proof one way or the other.

The title of this thread should be "'e' for 'ephebophilia'", if one really wants to make this a punchline.
