Ok, I’ve got a pretty sick sense of humor. I know (and sometimes laugh at) all the “Women are Stupid” and “Dead Baby” jokes and I think dark comedy has very few limits.
However, something I read on the ol’ Facebook today really pissed me off. Someone said that last year for halloween they had gone as a child molester. They wore large glasses, a beard, an old sweater, you know the stereotype. All I have to say to that is:
What does a child molester look like? Because last time I checked there is no way to tell if someone is going to ruin some kids life or not. It’s not funny and it’s not ok to perpetuate the assumption that you can tell what kind of person will molest a child. Is it a gay man? Isn’t it just priests? Oh, ok, then I guess my dashing blonde female neighbor would never touch my children inappropriately, thanks stereotypes.
Also, child molestation is NOT FUNNY. It never was and it never will be. What is funny about it? If someone can tell me one funny thing about dressing as a child molester for halloween I will reconsider my rant. But I doubt it.
Ugh. Back to my cereal and web comics.
