Oh yes, very good

  1. I am not sure that prison is not the correct place for any adult who coaches an infant into making jokes about child sexual abuse. Jokes that must be beyond her understanding.

    There is a seriously damaged, and creepy, adult here somewhere.

  2. SMFS: Nonsense.

    The ability to comment on the crazy world around one is not limited by age. She can understand the paedo mania without needing a blow by blow understanding of adult sexuality. Indeed kids of her age are doubtless subject to endless anti-paedo agitprop far beyond the actual level of danger posed by such.

    Seriously? With everyone panicking at the perceived prevalence of sexual predators? I know you guys have a real paedo-panic going on over there and over here, we’ve actually got a state trying to mandate ‘teaching’ kids about ‘human-trafficking’ in sex education classes here.

    Add in some pretty limited ability to control internet access and monitor communications, and I’d be surprised if any kid hasn’t been *bombarded* with ‘they’re gonna git’cha’ messages.

    Its not like online dating is some hidden thing – there’s tons of tv commercials for it, and most of those are for *hook-up sites*.

    I think people give kids too little credit for how much of the world they understand at any given age.

  4. Matthew L – “Or she’s just a ten year old with a sense of humour.”

    ‘I collaborate with others, like most comedians,’ she told Buzzfeed. ‘But I do write my own material,’

    Sure Matt. And I have a bridge to sell you.

    Mr Ecks – “The ability to comment on the crazy world around one is not limited by age. She can understand the paedo mania without needing a blow by blow understanding of adult sexuality.”

    At the age of 10, I rather doubt that. She is not actually condemning the paedomania either. She is commenting intelligently on it. At an age she probably still thinks boys are icky. The ability to comment on the world is limited by age. Extremely limited in fact. Do you actually have any children?

    ‘I went to church with my friend Maria. We did this thing called communion. I was too scared to drink God’s blood. What if he is a diabetic?’

    How many ten year olds do you know who even know what a diabetic is? Can make a sensible comment about Transsubstantiation? And is smart enough to know to call her fake friend Maria to give the joke some credibility?

    ‘I told my dad I wish Kurt Cobain had waited 20 more years before killing himself so I could have at least seen him in concert. My dad said: ‘Why don’t you just wish he didn’t kill himself?’ Yeah dad, and then not have the Foo Fighters?’

    Come on. How many ten year olds give a damn about Nirvana or even have heard of the Foo Fighters? Music dates people well. And clearly whoever wrote this joke was about 40. At 10, at best, she would be making a joke about Katy Perry. In an utterly ironic and unsexualised manner.

    She has been coached to make jokes about sexual abuse. By her father.

    Agammamon – “Seriously? With everyone panicking at the perceived prevalence of sexual predators?”

    She is ten. Not 15. Ten.

    “Add in some pretty limited ability to control internet access and monitor communications, and I’d be surprised if any kid hasn’t been *bombarded* with ‘they’re gonna git’cha’ messages.”

    That is not what the joke is about.

  5. So Much For Subtlety

    Matthew L – “You don’t know many ten year olds, do you.”

    Show me one other ten year old girl who is a Nirvana fan.
