Because I guess Milo was hogging the pro-pedophilia spotlight, Adam Carolla thought NOW would be the perfect time to dust off his views about teenage boys having sex with their teachers.
During a recent episode of the podcast Dumb People Town, he joined hosts the Sklar Borthers and Daniel Van Kirk. The topic was “True Stories of People Doing Dumb Things.” They had just finished discussing the substitute teacher who lost her job after randomly performing a cartwheel for her students while wearing a skirt and no underwear. The conversation soon shifted over to female teachers who have sex with their students.
“I would make the ultimate defense attorney for one of these teachers because they always do these ones where they have this two year affairs with the guys in the 10th grade through their Senior year blah blah blah and they’re like hot blondes and they’re out of Florida and blah blah blah blah blah blah,” Carolla stated. “Then at some point it ends up in court and the prosecutor starts talking about irreparable damage and psychological damage and this boy’s gonna need therapy for the rest of his life and he’s not gonna trust women, he’s not gonna trust adults… I would let him wax on forever and then I’d go, ‘I got one question and one question only for the victim of this crime. You’re nineteen now. This went on from fifteen to seventeen, yes. Since it stopped until now have you ever beat off to it? Uh yes. Earlier today. We’re done.’ Anything you beat off to it’s not scarring and it’s not a violent crime. If you own a liquor store and some thug comes in and strong arms you you don’t beat off to it, but you have beat off to it multiple times, thus where is the victim in this scenario. And you know had to have beat off to it hundreds of times by the time he’s up there.”
I don’t think it works like that. Several commenters on the ONTD thread took umbrage at his remarks, as well. One nailed the problematic nature of his conclusion on its head.
sexual trauma relays into sexual dysfunction all the time – thats the problem, thats the effect of trauma. because for a lot of people its impossible to disassociate sex from the trauma. boys jerking it to being molested – ESPECIALLY when people like Carolla are convincing them thats what they should be doing because theyre so lucky an older woman slept with them…are not helping. also for a lot of victims the abuse they suffered is the only experience they have with sex.
I really fucking hate this guy.
