My name is Sarah. I'm 22-years-old. I'm married to the most wonderful human. I ♥ coffee, baking, crafting, cold weather, Hello Kitty, traveling, succulents and sushi.
Once Ryan and I were waiting for a movie to start in the theatre. We were watching a preview for the new Ron Burgundy movie when Steve Carroll says a joke about pedophilia (“Only hug a child when another adult is around”). The theatre broke out into laughter, except for Ryan and I were not laughing, because when the hell did it become OK to joke about child molestation? Why are we so comfortable in denying that terrible things happen to children and babies, too, to the point that we can just laugh it off?
I wondered how many people in that theatre are actually a survivor of pedophilia and felt they needed to laugh at that to be “normal”.
