I have been watching that Dateline "To Catch a Predator" shit. Im appalled, to say the least. But not for the same reasons that everyone else is. I dont care about men lusting after young girls, that shit is as old as time. I am concerned about what this show says about our society as a whole.
First of all, the reason its called "To CATCH a predator" is because Dateline lures these poor bastards out of their lairs with this whole bait and switch fishing routine that very closely mirrors what i would call entrapment. If it werent for Dateline and their "ratings agenda" these guys would be at home, taking turns pretending to be the 13 year old girl for eachother on the internet, jacking off, then retiring to the couch with a bowl of cereal to watch fuckin Southpark like the rest of us. So, in my opinion, these guys go from "harmless" to "predator" the moment dateline lures them out the goddamn door, and that truly is entrapment.
If you listen to the way that jackhole Chris Hansen reads those chatlogs without any inflection whatsoever, you will begin to think he must be a robot. If you are gonna air someones private life on television, and recite a cybersex dialog, at least do it with some fucking emphasis and conviction! I hate anything that make sex sound emotionless, tasteless and dirty. This whole bullshit is just another way the conservatives try to get into to your living room and make you think its dirty to touch yourself or think about sex.
The only thing that bothers me about the endless parade of guys on this show is that they dont even bother to take showers, some of them, they dont shave or iron their shirts. They show up to take a strangers virginity, lookin like fuckin bums off the street. I dont care how stupid you are, no young girl should have to remember this neanderthal
or this monkey lookin motherfucker
pouring sweat and breathing heavy over her for the rest of her life. If I had to see that face on top of my 13 year old self for the rest of my life, One Million scalding hot post-rape victim style showers and 10,000 tears could not save me from eventually shooting myself in the face.
To the point, no one wants to see this shit. They are creating problems where there were none. I am beginning to think that the only 13 year old girls on the internet are the ones that Dateline provides. If you are a 13 year old girl who has been the unsuspecting victim of internet predation, I would LOVE to hear from you.
And another thing, dosent anyone parent their children anymore? Do parents these days really rely on the media moguls to babysit their kids in this way?
One more reason to shut the fuckin TV off and read a book, to think outside that 20 inch box that dominates your living room.
