And we wonder why people hate us...

OK, this article was brought to my attention this weekend:
Story about insane pervo-goat dentist

Please read it all and kindly return for the requisite commentary.

OK, you probably had to get up and wash your hands or rinse w/ some Listerine to get the nasty taste out of your mouth. Bleaaggh!

If you like, do check out the commentary by Sarah from Cleveland.

She seems to be less affronted by the story than I would assume a normal female would be, in that I have a hard time being anything other than apalled. However, I DO have to agree w/ her big question: What on EARTH was wrong w/ the 31 year old woman in the story? Six incidents over two years? I mean, I can imagine her having a conversation w/ a friend, "oh, hey, when your dentist massages your chest, does he go under your clothes?" "Ummm...."

I'm reminded of the "Friends" episode where Joey discovers that the man he's trusted as his tailor since childhood has been engaging in some activities not related to letting out a hem. Oh, God Bless You it is....

This has got to be a similar situation... I dunno. I do know that the WORST thing to say or even THINK in cases of sexual abuse is "Oh she really wanted it..." or "she said no but meant yes..." So I wouldn't say that, but I can't help but wonder if there was some kind of tacit approval of this activity? Yes, some people defer to authority no matter what, some people are ashamed and afraid to say anything, but ... TWENTY SEVEN women?? I can't wrap my brain around this.

Other questions: Where were the assistants before? Did they know nothing? Aren't they complicit in the abuse? How did this go on for FIVE years? Are people in California somehow denser? Is this going to be a black eye for Mormons, like Mitt Romney? (yes, he's LDS.... at least someone other than Catholic clergy are taking some heat...)

OK, that's all I can come up with for now.

Ooops! I came up w/ more. For NOW, you can still view said doctor's website.

I can't help but chuckle at the line, "Dr Anderson has a contagious sense of humor that he shares with his patients."
Should the snarky zinger I write be:

A - "Well, apparently they just didn't get the joke!"

B - "Let's hope that's the only contagious thing he's been sharing with them!"

or C - "Knock knock! Who's there? ..."

oh, I can't even go on.....

Before/After pictures of waiting room are forthcoming!
