Ok…I know. The last thing this board (or probably most boards out there) needs right now is another MJ thread. So if this ends up closed or moved or deleted, so be it. But it’s something I’ve needed to rant about for a while and I’m going to.
And…it is at least, not about the verdict.
it’s not because I have no fucking idea if MJ is sexually interested in children. That is, whatever constitutes 'sexual interest" for him. So I don’t know if he’s guilty but i will accept the ruling of the jury. Fine. But I have very little question that he is romantically interested in children. I don’t need to be in his bedroom or have any special knowedge to know that…I jut need to know what he’s said and done in public.
Putting your hands down a kid’s pants is reprhensible…But so is expecting children to fill the needs of adults in other ways. In fact, that has a lot to do with why sexual contact between adults and children is so evil. Not because sex is evil. because it’s an adult using a child.
And from what i’ve heard…from everything he’s said before, to what he’s said recently (“I would just die if I couldn’t be around children. I would just kill myself”) he’s not looking to help children as much as he’s looking to them to help him with his own emotional problems. That is not the way an adult should deal with a child any more than using them to deal with their sexual problems is.
Why is this a rant? Well because I had the same experience as a child…no sex, although he did make it clear he wanted sex. But mostly he made me feel guilty for not reponding to his emotional needs when, gee…he was being so nice to me.
I felt guilty.
I bet a lot of those kids at neverland feel guilty.
