A lot of other people are sick
Let me summarize this for you:
- friend finds out woman showers with her 9-year-old son because it's convenient
- friend freaks out that this is gross and writes to radio station
- DJ and all callers say this is sexual abuse and Child Protective Services should be called
Now, I wanted to call in and say that I was far more appalled by the reactions of the callers and DJ than by the supposed transgression of the mom. I mean they were making comments like, "she's not just naked she's soaping herself up..." (guys who shower together at the gym must be gay, then, IMHO) and "my son freaks out if he sees me in my underwear." Really? Could you have maybe taught him that??? I saw my parents naked lots as a child and I was never sexually abused in any way. My kids see me naked all the time, it's normal for us. I'm not sexually aroused by it in any way, shape, or form.
Only in America is nudity associated with solely with sex. In countries like Japan and Finland family bathing is a ritual to be respected and brings closeness. What the hell? What kind of sick mind automatically equates taking a bath with your kid with child abuse? I didn't. You know why? Uhh, cause I don't associate sex with my kids? Unlike you sick bastards. You would call CPS and get this kid taken away from his Mom for this? It's disgusting.
People who think things like that are the problem. They are the ones sexualizing a totally mundane activity. They're the same sort of people who work at the Wal-Mart photo lab and call the cops when you have pics of your toddlers in the bathtub developed. Obviously it's child pornography. Nevermind that a toddler playing in suds is about the cutest thing out there and you may someday want a memento of it. And people who agree with me would be too afraid to say anything because they might get reported to CPS and their kids taken away.
What comes next, you get reported for hugging your kid too long or giving them a kiss?
