Remebering I like to keep things light I am a littel leary of putting this up, I may take this down later, but right now I needed a place to vent.
In the past two weeks there have been Five arrests and one warrent out for an arrest in the area of Child molestation. One was a church youth worker, One a soccer coach, one was a teacher, and two were residence of central Alberta. These two were particulllarly awful in that the were producing child porn. Just so you know one of the two was a woman. Yes people pedophilia knows no gender bounds. The person still on the “lamb” is another Canadian wanted in Thailand.
Now this situation would normally only set my blood at a medium to high boil, but couple it with the costumes that I saw in the last week as well as last night and I get nuclear reactor meltdown. I have seen kids under the age of 10 dressed as a sexy nurse, a hoochy devil, a cocktail waitress, and a sexy pirate. Not to mention the sexy pumpkin I found at the store. A pumpkin is round, large and orange. There is nothing sexy about a pumpkin and yet manufacturers managed to sex up a pumpkin.
I am mad! I am mad at the manufatures and the “media” for creating this stuff and the enviroment that makes it oh so desireable.But my anger doesn’t stop there, I am mad at you parents who are shelling out the dough and buying it. I bet if you interview every parent who bought that stuff they would say “My worst nightmare would be to have my daughter molested, kidnapped and or killed.” They would claim they would do everything in their power to prevent that from happening and yet their little girls are running around in the dark dressed like they are for sale.
As for the slightly older kids (12-18) you parents still have the power. Yes your sneeky daughter may sneek a sexy outfit out under their modest costume to be revealed later at a friends party. Fine! When they get caught they suffer the consiquence. Maybe they have to wait and extra month to get their learners permit or they loose driving privilages all together. Or how about they do a weeks commmunity service in a womens shelter or a childrens cottage and see what path they might be heading down.
Now we all have free will and I don’t want to take that away. In a perfect world we could all wear what we want, but we don’t live in a perfect world and there can be serious consiquences to the choices that we make. I am not taking the responsibilty away from the scum that abuse little kids nobody gets away with that. I however would never dress my child in a pair of shorts that say “Juicy” or “Delicious”. (mostly because they are boys, but I don’t think I would do it if I had girls either) You would never invite an alcoholic to a wine and cheese unless you are cruel and you should never advertise your daughter to a pedophile.
