Did He Cross the Line?

Welcome to the great debate…

Yesterday someone wrote a blog about the first time he touched and rubbed a vagina; he was 7 and the girl was 6. Though some people left comments ranging from neutral to reminiscent, other comments, mine included, were sharply critical of the blog calling it creepy, gross, and basically inappropriate.

Having known this blogger in the virtual world for a while, I am certain that the blogger wrote this story simply to share his first “innocent” experience with us. Nonetheless, I stand by my comments that certain material is better left alone.

Without knowing the blogger, the story, which has since been deleted, appears to glorify and romanticize molestation. (If I recall correctly, the 6 year old girl was asleep when the touching started). I am also disturbed by the fact that the story seemed to sexualize what might have been innocent discovery.

Having been molested for the first time at age 4 and at the age of 8, I do not know whether I am hypersensitive to this subject matter or whether the blog was truly inappropriate - regardless of one’s past.

What are your thoughts?

It was truly and totally inappropriate.

I understand your point. Being a victim myself, we do take it personally. Although he was relating an innocent childhood memory, this is not the place for it. (Nice to know I'm not the only one things happened to. But, I wish it had not happened to iether one of us.)

I haven't read the original blog, so I'll reserve judgement. Simply recounting an innocent sexual experience as a child is probably not actually inappropriate unless it was also meant to elicit a sexual response on the part of the reader.

I do sometimes wish some people would stop being so paranoid. Children are not sexless (they are born to fulfill a sexual role later in life), but they do lack the emotional and physical maturity to handle adult situations and we should therefore do everything in our power to prevent them from being exploited. Talking about simple childhood curiosity in it's proper context shouldn't provoke such a furor.

I was given issues when I was six, so I don't know.......I try not to think about those years too much.
