'To Catch a Predator' & The Daily Show?

I know that NBC is trying to do a good thing by informing teens and parents about poor decision making online. I don't mind that they call young men "sexual predators" when they make a date to have sex with under-age girls, but I don't think people know what happens next!

Did you know that many young men in the USA are getting as much as 10 years in prison for oral sex with their girlfriend who's less than 3 years difference in age or even closer?! You can read about one such case here. Our sexuality laws are Victorian and 'To Catch a Predator' may be exploiting these laws (they pretend to be teenage girls on the internet & meet to have consensual sex).

'To Catch a Predator' was talked about on The Daily Show tonight as if it was great, so maybe Jon Stewart isn't aware of the problem. If you think Jon Stewart should address this issue on the Daily Show, please reply to my post on the Daily Show message board. If it gets a number of posts, maybe someone will pay attention.

BTW, please spread the word. Are you on any other sexuality or some other forums where people might be interested in this? Thanks!
