The Dairy Industry Endorses Statutory Rape!
WHAT IS STATUTORY RAPE?
It's a crime committed when an adult has sexual intercourse with a
minor. Who is a minor? Anyone under the age of 18. What can happen if
an adult has sex with a minor? If reported, that person may be arrested,
tried in a court of law, and sent to jail. What happens if the sex is
consensual? Even if they both agree to have sex, it's still statutory
rape and it's against the law.
FORBIDDEN SEX SELLS
"Pacey Witter" is the 16-year-old high school sophomore hunk on "Dawson's Creek," a favorite television show for pre-teens, teens, and my three daughters. Last year, Joshua Jackson's character was seduced by his high school English teacher, Miss Jacobs.
Television handled the controversy appropriately, and Miss Jacobs was severely disciplined and ultimately had to resign. Does television mimic real life?
This year the National Fluid Milk Processor Promotion Board approached Joshua Jackson. After all, if drugs can be used to sell milk (Mark McGwire) and cartoon characters used to sell milk to children (Rugrats, Kermit, Garfield), why not use forbidden sex to make milk attractive to teenagers?
Sexy and virile-looking Joshua Jackson sits in a rowboat, holding a glass·of milk. The white creamy milkstache is applied to his upper lip. His comment:
"I can't help it. Women of all ages look up to me. Why? I'm 1.88m (6 foot 2). Thanks in part to milk. The calcium helps bones grow strong. Considering 15% of your adult height is added when you're a teenager, that's good to know. Especially if you want to impress, let's say, an older woman.
Statutory rape is a felony crime. Teachers who rape their students
should be subject to the severest of penalties. There should be no
mercy for predatory adults, whether male or female, who engage in sexual
activity with their students.
Jackson's character had sex with an "older woman," his English teacher.
She was lucky, even by television's standards, not to go to jail. In
real life, teachers receive prison sentences.
The thought of having sex with a minor might excite certain adults and
provide sexual fantasies to naļve and inexperienced teens and pre-teens.
However, responsible adults seek to protect children from predatory acts
of sexually deviant criminals.
A teacher, who I will identify simply as Mary, developed more than just a bond with one of her students at Shorewood Elementary School in Seattle. She had an affair with the young man and became mother to his child. She now resides in a federal prison. In an interview with the Seattle Times, Mary said:
"There was a respect, an insight, a spirit, an understanding between us that grew over time." By the time the boy was 13, teacher and student were having sex. In May, just before the boy's 14th birthday, Mary gave birth to his child. Her life in ruins, his life forever affected, society learns no lesson from this real-life case and the dairy industry uses it as an opportunity to sell milk.
Children in high school are aware of sex. By age 14, hormones are surging and young girls have developed into women. Generations of young men have lusted after young girls since the beginning of time. Are third graders ready for such an assault?
The dairy industry has no conscience. Neither does Bozell International, the advertising agency hired to create milkstache ads. Last week, as the school term wound down and children looked forward to their summer vacations, a nation-wide GOT MILK campaign delivered their message to school age children.
My nine-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, brought home a colorful shiny three-foot by two-foot poster/book cover appealing to children of all ages. Garfield the cat was on that ad and so were the Back Street Boys, Tyra Banks, Mark McGwire, and Joshua Jackson, the boy who wants to "impress older women."
Fold the book cover at the spine, and the dairy industry Internet site appears (whymilk.com). A bright red invitation is made to "Enter the thirst for knowledge contest and win $2,500."
Like Eve offering the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge to Adam, the dairy industry's thirst for knowledge has become an enticement for children of all ages to have sex with their teachers. Wear a milk mustache like the star of "Dawson's Creek." Have sex with an older teacher like the star of Dawson's Creek."
Morality be damned! Proudly wear that milk mustache. Especially if you want to "impress, let's say, an older woman."
