The Useful Idiot

Usually when I get super-retarded comments on the site I just reject them. However, I got one today that is so incredibly asinine that I simply must share it with my readers. This person, and others like them, are what I call useful idiots in the political arena.

hi, my name is Watch Out, thats right watch out, because you people don't see me coming. Did you know that SEX is 100% better without a sex toy. did you know that sex toys are oftened used for sex crimes against children. If someone has a legitimate need for this device, they can buy it at a drugstore. I even think a person should have a doctors prescription for this. do you want your 11 or 12 year old child looking at porn and playing with sex toys at their friends houses. I know this BECAUSE IT happened to me, I blocked it out for 20 years, and I still have emotional issues today. So I think all of you are a bunch of stupid fools!!! signed WATCH OUT, cause i am just gettin started. ***********


There are many problems with this type of illogic.


"Did you know that SEX is 100% better without a sex toy."


First, there really should have been a question mark after 'toy'. Where is the science to back up that statement? This is nothing more than the opinion of an anonymous person. Maybe, in their experience, sex has always been better without a sex toy. So, in their mind, we should outlaw sex toys, because, hey, if Watch Out doesn't need one then, you don't either. That makes about as much sense as me saying I can't have good sex without a sex toy, therefore, we should pass a law that says everyone must use a sex toy during sex.

did you know that sex toys are oftened used for sex crimes against children.

There again the question mark thing. More importantly though, no, I didn't know that sex toys were often used in sex crimes against children. I don't think I have ever heard that anywhere ever before. Show me proof. You could potentially use anything in a sex crime against a child. If someone used a common household item, like a wooden spoon, would you seek to outlaw those too? Adult novelty items have absolutely nothing to do with sex crimes against children. People who commit sex crimes against children would do it no matter what devices were available.

If someone has a legitimate need for this device, they can buy it at a drugstore. I even think a person should have a doctors prescription for this.

Drug stores in Alabama don't carry adult novelty devices. And...who cares what you think about why someone needs one and what they should have to go through to get it? What are you...the Alabama Sex Czar? Who appointed you so?> Did I get a vote on it?

do you want your 11 or 12 year old child looking at porn and playing with sex toys at their friends houses. I know this BECAUSE IT happened to me, I blocked it out for 20 years, and I still have emotional issues today.

Does anyone want their 11 or 12 year-old child playing with a sex toy under any circumstances? Why, of course not! This is where parental responsibility comes into play. Know who your children are going home with. Sounds like your parents failed in that duty if what you say happened is true. Just because when you were 11 or 12 you went to a friends house and saw or played with a sex toy and claim to be emotionally damaged from it does not mean that sex toys should be outlawed. Just because your parents were irresponsible does not mean that everyone else is, or that everyone else should be punished for the failings of your parents. No doubt you have emotional issues and, I'll give you a point or two there for being honest, but your whole philosophical bent is that, because you had some sort of bad experience with a sex toy that sex toys should be outlawed for everyone else. That is what eventually becomes 'legislation by anecdote' and you are what I call a useful idiot.

Politicians use people like you because you will actually get up in front of a crowd and say space case stuff like this. You confuse three or four volatile issues, sex toys, sex crimes against children, children having access to sex toys and 'emotional damage' from a sex toy (that's really hysterical) and what happens is, once people hear the words 'sex crimes against children' the blinders go on and they hear and see nothing else. Not even Jesus himself could cure them of such irrational blindness.

Sex toys are inanimate objects and are incapable of hurting anything of their own accord. They don't have any accord to speak of. They are made of plastic or rubber after all. This is not an issue that has anything to do with children. Or sex crimes. Or sex crimes against children. No rational person believes that it is. Unfortunately, the State House is not filled with rational people and, people tend to become completely irrational when any sex issue is being discussed. I expect Attorney General Troy King and others like Senator Hank Erwin or Rep. Gerald Allen will scoop you up and parade you about as their "poor victim who was assaulted by a dildo" poster child.

Boy Howdy this legislative session is shaping up to be a doosie! I can't wait til Feb. 5.

See you in the halls Watch Out. I must warn you, however, that if you show up at the State House you will be surrounded by fake dicks and, because of your emotional issues with such things, it could get really uncomfortable.

You know what else is used in sex crimes against children? Beds. That's right: beds. In fact, in many cases of childhood sexual abuse, the whole episode started with a child in a bed.

Ban beds.

For the children.

This person used a sex toy on his/herself while looking at porn, and it was such a traumatic experience that s/he blocked it out for 20 years? Puhlease.

And I really don't like the threatening implication of "you people don't see me coming" and "cause I am just gettin started". Seriously, get some counseling and get over it already. Or if you're lying, grow up and get a life.

I once had a traumatic experience with a dog as a child. Ban dogs. For the children.

Men are used in sex crimes against children. Ban men. For the children. (I've also heard that sex is 100% better without men. Ooh! He's gonna LOVE that statement!)

And if you really need either, you could get them at a drug store-- with a prescription.
