Protest Against Voyeurism Of Underage Sex By Boycotting

July 31st, 2009 · 2 Comments

By request, I am weighing into the Kyle and Jackie O debate re: the 14-year-old girl who was quizzed on her sexual experiences while plugged in to a lie detector, on their morning radio program.

It’s pretty obvious really. You don’t subject an underage child to public questioning about sex. The fact that it transpired she was raped when she was 12 is irrelevant to the debate.

If it was my child I’d be suing someone for the humiliation. The world now knows the most intimate details about this child that most mothers don’t ever get to know. It’s absolutely shocking.

I’ll be boycotting the Kyle and Jackie O show as a result of this ’stunt’. Radio stations live and die by their ratings. It’s the only message that will get through to them.

    But what about the mother? Doesn’t the responsibility ultimately sit with her to ensure her child isn’t subjected to questions like that, let alone instigate them, knowing that she is a rape victim?

    The mother is mental… I think Jackie O handled it very well.

    Unfortunately there are seriously bad parents out there. We, as a society, can’t stand by and allow it to happen – or in this case, facilitate it.

    If my husband did that to one of my children I would murder him and sue them.
