Stories. I got your fresh, hot stories.

RL only, but Ho-ho-holy sheeeet. Blazing headlines in Dallas today: prominent dentist, from the old money part of town, looks like the Episcopalian version of Tom Cruise (handsome, but church-y and thinning hair?) picked up by the FBI for planning a trip on the internet with his other friends in NAMBLA* to procure sex with underaged Mexican boys. This is our old dentist, who refused to keep us as patients because I insisted on being in the same room with my (then) 5 year old son because he was scared of the gas.

YAY MOM INSTINCT!! Holy crap. 2 young daughters, an oblivious (really, though, is she?) wife, a country club membership... Can't say this town isn't interesting, that's for sure.

Picked up number 2 from school: flu hit her. She's so good when she's sick... But it's sunny and a reported high of 81 here - LOVELY! Remember how yesterday I said we'd get freezing rain or something this weekend? Yep. But I'm enjoying it while it lasts. Hopefully I can wrap up the latest parody fic and get something accomplished instead of kicking booty at Solitaire...

YAY MOM INSTINCT!!

Word.

I can't help thinking that there are probably more than a few parents of boys in your town who didn't trust there instincts and left the examining room.

I know. He is one of the most PROMINENT dentists in that area. Mainly a children/teen dentist.

A teacher at one of the public schools in our area was picked up, as well. I mean ... a teacher. That's just wrong. I'm all for people exploring their kinks, but when those kinks involve children? Um. Only unless you're so freaking absolutely positive that the kid is old enough and adult enough to understand what's going on. Like the Latreaneau or whatever her name is and the kid she's about to marry. Them? Yes.

Just about anything else? No. No, no no.

Go mom instincts indeed.

I mentioned below that I have squick issues when it comes to teenagers and adults. There is something sad in an adult seeking companionship with someone not fully formed (meaning - who they are to be). Teenagers with teenagers? That seems realistic. But a man of 50 and a 16 year old boy is just odd to me. I think about who I was at 16 vs. 19 and it's a world of change. Not to mention how much I changed in my twenties...

And someone in a position of trust and power like a teacher or doctor? Such an abuse.

Kinks and consenting adults? Bring it on - it's fun. But with kids? Wrong wrong wrong.

Just out of curiosity
How old is underage? Were they looking for 16-year-olds, or 5-year-olds?

Re: Just out of curiosity
We may not ever find out; I don't know the FBI's going to release that kind of information. From what I know of the organization, though, and my guess as to why they have to go Mexico to find boys, we're talking ten and younger.

Man, I listen to my mommy radar and sometimes it's just me being paranoid.

As to that July-August heat... That's what the pool and Mojitos are for! ;-) (But we'll get freezing rain and have a few more weeks of cold before things stay pretty for a spell.)

Oh, he is. Republican through and through. Has American flags and Bush stickers, to boot.

The irony of that is almost going to kill me.

I just don't understand some people. I was talking about this kind of thing with my friend last night. How can adults look at children and think about sex? Do they think, "Maybe I'll go to the park and hang out by the monkey bars to pick up some young hot piece of ass"? That's pretty fucked up.

Why can't the adults make a connection with someone of legal age? SOmeone who is more assure of who they are and less prone to emotional damage?

You know I've had the Cartman ep in my head, right?

I just don't get it. I go into the room with my eleven year old and my eight year old and the dentist is a middle aged woman. Never has said boo to me. She is so cool with it.

Weird story though, my first son's pediatrician went to jail for murdering someone. Can you believe that? A colleague that he got pregnant. He strangled her and pushed her car off a cliff. This was the nicest guy around, as far as I could tell. Goes to show you. You just never know.

Now, read some of the above threads (always interesting, my flist) and think about your oldest boy's friends being capable of a sexual relationship. I just can't. Too much of a mom, too much into the emotional well-being of all kids.

And WOW on the pediatrician! Which goes to prove my theory that pediatricians suck. Ha ha ha!! I'm over-identifying today... Still freaked, I guess.

Very interesting thread. I am so with you. I'm not afraid to hurt anyone's feelings when I say that if you are an adult and want to have sexual contact with a child, you are wrong. I don't care what the kid thinks or how much you feel for the kid, or whatever. It's wrong, and it's selfish, and it's a big, fat power trip. And no matter how much society pushes the idea that an older woman seducing a child is some kind of dream come true for the boy - it's abuse. It's not love when you take what you want from someone without caring in the least what it will mean for them when they are old enough to regret it.

::disassembles my pulpit::

PS Thank God you insisted on staying with your boy. Good for you for listening to your gut. My dentist's offices have no doors and a dozen people walking by at all times. It's the only way to go. :0)

**steals your pulpit and bronzes it, sends it back with a plaque*

I unfortunately am aware of a lot of the darkness that comes with the age difference. I helped an organization take young girls out of polygamist relationships and try and educate them on what rights they had. 14 year old girls being married to 60 year old men. Happens almost every day. Even if the man was in his 30s, or 20s... There is a loss of innocence that sickens me with this.

My god: there's only a short span of a decade or two that you have freedom to make your own mind up about things before life starts beating you down.

And for the record, our current dentist and ortho LOVE it when moms and dads hang out, have made the rooms (which are open plan) large with comfy chairs, and have monitors all over so you can watch from wherever. The dentist referred to in the post didn't have that. Glad we moved, too.

I think the open plan is for that very thing (also, I suspect it makes it easier for the doctor to move from patient to patient)

I don't know why I'm shocked that parents aren't looking out for their kids... Look at the parents who let their kids spend the night with Michael Jackson. And if HE'S found innocent, I'll eat a plate of bugs.

See, now that is just wrong. If I was going to be a bad dentist, I would be hosting after-hours parties with all of the the hot dental assistants, and of course we would have to pass around the nitrous a few times. As for NAMBLA, well let's just say I don't take kindly to their organization so they certainly wouldn't be invited. Nor would anybody underage for that matter.

I'm with you, there has to be something mentally wrong with an adult that seeks a relationship with underage children. I couldn't see myself engaging in a relationship with anyone under 25, much less a teenager. I once dated a 19 year old when I was 24 and even then, the age difference proved to be too much for me. A year later I had an interlude, for lack of a better term, with a much older woman. She was 40 to be exact, and afterwords that just felt wrong. Meeting her 17 year old son on the way up to her bedroom is an experience that I would rather forget. Damn! Is it any wonder that I stopped drinking so much?

I'm glad your former dentist is in Texas, because he is literally fucked in so many ways that I can almost believe in Karma.

Oh, man, and he is soft and weak with a high, softly pitched voice. Prison is going to be hard on him. I think he'll have ponytails, lipstick, and short shorts one month in.

BAH!!! blech and gah! Thank you for piping up, BTW. A young man's (meaning, you aren't over 35) perspective is valuable in this topic, IMO.

Ick. Ick. Ick. Ick. Ick.

Ick. Ick.

I hadn't looked at the paper when I read this, but believe me I ran for it and did after. Creepy damn Singing Dentist.

And all I can think of is a quote from Deeper Thoughts, by Jack Handey. I want to make the world better place for my children. But not my children's children. Because I don't think children should be having sex.

Yay for your instincts! Whew! Your powers are very, well, powerful.
And yay gorgeous day. I can hear like, locusts or something out there. It's like a warm spring evening. Fake spring, but fabulous all the same.

Okay, now you're quoting Deeper Thoughts? Our love is so pure.

Isn't his picture freaking you out?? Damn you, Val-Paks! He's everywhere..

ICK!! Yes. Icky icky poo!

And I don't think sudden, uncontrolled urination should automatically disqualify you from power weight lifting.

My own experience taught me, and my parents, that you can't trust anyone alone with your children. Yay, you, for protecting your kids. You did exactly the right thing.

He wanted you to leave the room while he treated your five year old? God, I'm sure he molested thousands upon thousands of his patients. Bastard. He needs to die. His wife probably knew everything.

Holy crap. This kind of thing just makes me sick. It also makes me want to do some ball ripping. It just makes me sad to think of the parents who didn't follow that same 'instinct' that you did. I can't believe that NAMBLA actually has a mandate and everything. I don't know how many levels of hell there are for people like that. Humanity really makes me want to puke my guts out sometimes.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
