Allegedly occurred, that is. Of course.

Clash has admitted to a sexual history with the man, but denies it was ever before he was a legal adult.

The worst part of all this is that even if Clash is proven innocent (which will likely be very tricky to do) his career is almost certainly shot. People get crazy over the P word, even when completely unjustified.

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

The word Ef-able (Short and polite for fuckable) is floating about in my lexicon, which when I was trying to locate the correct imaginary spelling I realized that I might be thinking of effable which means to be well spoken, so then I reconsidered that the vulgar word I was looking for must be shortened into F-Able... Which means imaginary story.

It's an imaginary story that any one is fuckable.

We all settle, always.

The correct description of the alleged relationship would be "pederasty." The Greeks had a word for it, as they say.

Ephebophilia is the Greek term for the preference. Pederasty is the Greek word for the relationship (unsurprisingly they had more than one word). Either would work perfectly fine and would be - unlike the current title - not misleading at all.

Re: Brought to you by the letter "p" for "pedophilia"?

That's great to hear. Clash has really built something special to a lot of families and children with his Elmo character, and it would have been awful if he had been guilty of the predatory behavior of which he was falsely accused.

And this is exactly why it's better to get all the facts before rushing to judgement.

That has got to be the understatement of the year.

Anyway, glad to see that this situation looks to have resolved itself. Sad to say the damage has probably already been done, but I hope he returns to his job.

Re: Brought to you by the letter "p" for "pedophilia"?

So apparently you aren't allowed to send emails about sex from your workplace. What if you send them on your phone? I'm assuming it was his personal account that he sent them from, but maybe he sent them with some sesame.street account?

The Muppeteer ran into trouble for an email he sent his accuser well after the man turned 18, according to TMZ, in which he said,

“I’m sorry that I keep talking about sex with you, it’s driving me insane.”
“I want you to know that I love you and I will never hurt you,”
“I’m here to protect you and make sure your dreams come true.”
“I’ll have my assistant book a ticket for you to come to NY and we can talk about this in person.”
Now of course after this thread you all read that in Elmo's voice.

You know, to make sure that each "Tickle Me Elmo" worked properly, they checked it by giving it two testicles. I mean test tickles.

LOL. A man's career might be over because someone wrongfully accused him of something. LOL.
