On April 27, WMMS radio personality Dominic Dieter, who hosts the morning show, “Rover’s Morning Glory” reportedly received an email from a parent asking for advice who caught his teenage daughter kissing another girl. In response, Deiter instructed the father,
“You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight.”
It is unfathomable to me that someone would even suggest corrective rape. From Wikipedia:
Corrective rape is the use of rape against women who violate social norms regarding human sexuality and gender roles, often lesbians but sometimes gay men, with a goal of punishment of abnormal behavior and reinforcement of societal norms. The crime was first identified in South Africa where it is sometimes supervised by members of the woman’s family or local community, and is a major contributor to HIV infection in South African lesbians. Corrective rape has also been known to occur in Thailand, Ecuador, Canada, the United States, and Zimbabwe. Corrective rape and the accompanying violence can result in physical and psychological trauma, mutilation, HIV infection, unwanted pregnancy, and may contribute to suicide.
There is not much more I can say that is not filled with emotional diatribe. This man made a very irresponsible comment. While he has issued an apology, the harm has been done. There is a petition that was started. Feel free to sign it.
