As a parent, I would have 3 questions:
1) what are the qualifications of the groomers, are they State certified?
2) what performance indicators will they be benchmarked against in terms of meeting goals and targets?
3) are cultural background and ethnic diversity part of the groomer hiring process?

I don't want an uncertified, cis-gendered white gay man (hired through nepotism) trying (and failing) to convert my son or daughter.

Well, their invented boogeyman CRT is played out, so they need a new boogeyman. Repubs like being scared of something.

I think the GOP have run out of fake things to be afraid of or outraged about.
The distractions just aren't working anymore. Overturning Roe really did change the entire game.

Strong hygiene starts with good grooming habits. Why does Faux News hate combs?
 
2022-10-14 12:40:43 PM  
Point of order.  Subby states that Fox News thinks.
There is no evidence to support actual thinking at Fox News.
 
2022-10-14 12:41:43 PM  
They don't really think that, they just know that their stupid viewers will believe it just like they believe all of their other lies.
 
2022-10-14 12:42:07 PM  
Says the news channel that has a host who is their breadwinner that on multiple occasions approved of sexual assault of minors and thinks its not such a bad thing.

fark off fox news.  It would be a good day if they all died.

They're well on their way to completely obliterating the true meaning of that word to mean 'anyone who teaches kids something we don't like'
 
2022-10-14 12:42:17 PM  
No they don't. They just say shiat. They don't actually believe any of it.
 
2022-10-14 12:42:57 PM  
They actually sit on the staff of congressional republicans. Like Marjorie Taylor Greene. Or they are the republican congressmen, like Matt Gaetz.
 
2022-10-14 12:43:08 PM  
WATTERS: It looks like there's a profit motive, too. Because if you get the kids to start questioning things and you get the parents out of the picture,

And therein lies the real reason they're against this.

If you teach children to question and challenge authority, they might see that everything their GOP-supporting parents have told them was a load of crap.

Skyfrog: They don't really think that, they just know that their stupid viewers will believe it just like they believe all of their other lies.


That's just it tho... attendance is way off at a lot of evangelical and conservative political rallies and religious events. I think even the trumpers are tired and need a break.
 
2022-10-14 12:43:35 PM  
They need groomers for all the furries. Can't have the fur on their costumes getting all matted.
 
2022-10-14 12:43:57 PM  
This is why there should be a rule about which companies are allowed to call themselves "News" channels.

Fox is nothing more than Alex Jones's wet dream idol.
 
2022-10-14 12:44:20 PM  
Shouldn't they worry more about Catholic priests?
 
2022-10-14 12:44:39 PM  
Considering that conservatives and evangelicals have been taking over school boards over the last few decades, they aren't exactly wrong.
 
2022-10-14 12:45:26 PM  
Every accusation is an admission.
 
2022-10-14 12:46:21 PM  
No, they don't.  But they think their viewers will believe it.
 
2022-10-14 12:46:24 PM  
School boards are where you breed new vile politicians when the supply is running low.

Schools themselves are where the groomers seek employment.  Janitorial staff and coaches mostly, but sometimes teachers.

They go where the potential victims are, and board meetings rarely have vulnerable kids in attendance.

Fox News is doing that thing it loves this morning and laundering the views of right-wing activists as if they're just normal parents

My FOX watching neighbor fully believes in the schools are providing litter boxes for furries bullshiat.

School board members probably never meet a single student over the course of their 4-8 years in service.

Yes, let's ask the former model who got famous for being a pretty bigot (with bolt-on boobs she got before her 22nd birthday, speaking of improper sexualization) what she thinks about "grooming" children.

I'd have a fark of a lot more respect for her if she said anything about HER being sexualized - "groomed", you might call it - into early adulthood because the likes of Donald Trump (yup, him; speaking again of grooming) got 20% of a Viagra boner when she walked in.

That it's people who want kids to grow up knowing that who they are or who they love is grooming, and her "needing" fake tits to win a modeling competition - itself pretty much solely about how strong a fantasy the (male) judges get when looking at her - isn't, is an entire farking problem all on its own.

// my own dislike of fake boobs is an opinion, and I am NOT shaming her for having them
// a short inquiry as to why she thought she needed them, and how much they helped her career as a model, might be informative to any discussion of "grooming"

90% of all child molesters are family members or close friends of the family.

Just remember: every conservative accusation is a confession.

It looks like there's a profit motive, too. Because if you get the kids to start questioning things and you get the parents out of the picture, then all of a sudden surgery's underway, and people's pockets are getting fat.

Let's see who is behind all the grooming! [Rips off mask] Why, it's Big Surgery!

Consarnit, and Idda gotten away with it if it wasn't fer you meddlin' Fox News hosts!

This.

Kids are not molested by "groomers." Or, if they are, it is AFTER dad and stepdad and uncle and cousin and next-door neighbor and weirdo aunt and foster brother and babysitters have all already broken the child's trust and faith in themselves and understanding of what barriers are.

By the time any "groomers" enter the picture, the kids think this is what love is and how the adult/child relationship is supposed to be. Molesters go after kids that are ALREADY broken.

How to spot a groomer.

1) angry

2) they use codes to identify each other. Over 98% of groomers on Boards of Education will put an R after their name. Stands for Reprobate
 
2022-10-14 1:07:43 PM  
Groomers don't sit in school board rooms, ok maybe some do.

But, more of them sit in confessional booths listening to your sins.

Oh, her?!?!?!?! Miss Alt-Right America...

Haven't heard from her in years, but am completely unsurprised she's still right wing grifting for power and for profit.  Probably has 3-4 kids by now...all being really really white, both in color and ideology.

choosing not to get her current info via google or wikipedia, as I'd rather watch paint dry.
 
2022-10-14 1:13:40 PM

For every accusation of pedophilia, a republica. Gets caught commiting pedophilia. If I were them I'd stop bringing attention to the thing that most closely identifies with that party.

Jesus Christ it's like they're a party of Catholic priests out there. Money says hannity has touched an underage girl inappropriately and then paid her off to keep her quiet.
 
2022-10-14 1:14:47 PM  
She'd have a different take on what "grooming" is if she wasn't such a terrible person and didn't end up having first-hand account of by a wealthy Sultan who wanted her to visit "The Kingdom" for a month or so.

Someone will get killed over this "groomer" shiat Fox News is spewing, and when they get sued over that, theyl'll immediately fall back on the "for entertainment purposes only, no reasonable person would believe this" defense.

It's a vile channel, full of vile people willing to say antyhing to stay on TV.
