Internets WTF

Wife Of Accused Man Will Explain Why Child Porn Isn’t So Bad

Meet Mrs. Handbasket. Back in January she announced to the internets that her husband is “under investigation for possession of child cornography”.

Child cornography carries a special stigma in our society. Those who look at child corn are equated with those who sexually abuse children and record that abuse.

While the rest of us all say “No duh, Dick Tracy” Mrs. Handbasket has spent the last few months explaining why what her husband did is simply no big deal:

The standard explanation, when it comes to child corn, is that possessing images of children enduring sexual abuse is like abusing the children all over again…But let’s look at the photo of a murder scene. Who would claim that looking at the images of the murdered person is like murdering that person all over again? If I look at images of a child who has been beaten, is that like me beating the child myself? I can’t think that anyone would argue that.

She uses this bizarre rationale again and again while repeatedly reminding us that sex fantasies are not a crime and continually claiming that it’s not fair that “Both society and the justice system treat child corn users the same as child molesters”. She just wishes society would understand!

It is hard to expose my husband to the risk of whatever nasty judgments people might make about him, especially when I have seen so clearly his courage, his determination, and his love for the kids and me.

Yes, let’s focus on his feelings. He has apparently since been charged with receipt of child cornography, and Mrs. Handbasket is standing by her man – even gloating that her marriage “is better than ever”.  Her husband, the real victim here, might be off to prison soon, so won’t you take some time to offer some support? After all, it’s not like he did anything to deserve it.
