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

If you're a high profile rich person and you're fucking teenagers what do you expect. Even if you are always carefully on the side of legality you'd be an idiot not to know what it looks like. And it looks like that because it IS that. Predatory.

Um. Quoting is a click of the button. It takes like a second. So...that doesn't really prove anything. But, m'k.

Now you're just blatantly ignoring the known Alzheimer's vaccination properties of Elmo's seed, thereby portraying a selfless effort to heal a gay male generation as something else entirely.

I think I'd rather have Alzheimers than get anywhere near Elmo's seed.

Another young man has come forward alleging that Elmo (what's the guys real name again) had sex with him when he was sixteen and has a book coming out where he talks about the experience. Excerpts are to be realesed later this week.

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

I just don't understand why someone who works on a children's show would think its a good idea to hang out with sixteen or seventeen year old boys? Even if its not a sex thing.

Big Brother/Big Sister sort of thing? Mentoring? I can think of several legit reasons.

Working in that type of environment, I would find a way to donate my time that wouldn't have the potential to put me in a compromising position.

Honestly, I don't know whether or not the man is guilty (and I'm glad I don't have to make that judgement). But if he was spending time with these boys alone it will be impossible to disprove these charges.

I think, given what he did for a living, guilty or not any work he did even outside the production would likely subject him to suspicion. Right now, I'd say it's looking bad for him; but I hope--whatever the final outcome--it doesn't tar all the good work that Seasme Street and Children's Television Workshop has done over the years with the same brush.

He could drop dead of a heart attack, ala Michael Jackson. That did a great job of rehabilitating HIS image.

I wonder if any of these victimes plan to go after CTW with a civil suit. They could claim, correctly or not, that the CTW protected and/or enabled the Elmo guy to victimize these young men.

Me too.

Although I can't think of any legit reasons to be having sex with 'em.
