Manhunt: Mom's Talk

"I never thought this would be me: A liberal feminist complaining about a sex-positive, homosexual billboard. Like that would ever happen.

"Well, it has and here it is. Because I’m also a single mom complaining about her child’s premature loss of innocence, caused by driving past this billboard every day on the way to elementary school. Twice a day, since the image is on both sides of the billboard on Cahuenga, the only way to get to and from school for many Valley View Elementary families.

"You try explaining the “Zero feet away MANHUNT MOBILE” phone application to your 9-year-old son. A 9-year-old who loves Army guys, and so noticed the dog tags right away.

"It’s not the blatant porn-iness of the over-lit image, or that it is of two men. It would be equally annoying if it were hetero. It’s the fact that I am forced to figure out a way to frame to my fourth-grader the fact that some people like to find causal sex partners fast using their mobile phones..."

US Mom's Talk columnist Kelly Cole.
Fuck heavens when you come to explain how babies are made.

"Since I have a ten year old boy and I live in the neighborhood I'm an expert on this dilemma. Really!

"I'm not a feminist and I'm not pro-sex but I have to say that the corridor she's talking about is positively littered with billboards that have T&A selling things. This is not the most offensive billboard, not by a long shot.

"Here's what worries me about raising my ten year old son in Los Angeles:

1. I hope he will get a good education.
2. I hope he will be kind to others
3. I hope others will be kind to him
4. I worry that he will crack his head open... again.
5. I worry that there will be an earthquake
6. I worry that he won't love me as much as I love him.
7. I know that he won't love me as much as I love him.
8. I worry that his teachers won't see him as being articulate and interesting.
9. I worry that he will not develop good judgement.
10. I worry that the fundamentalists will make America awful for him.
#'s 10-764 are sort of the same
765. I worry that he'll see a billboard of two really hot guys almost kissing.
