@iceberg I feel like if he was truly and fully opposed to the idea, he could have said no to his mom or turned Monique away at the door. I'm not sure how you inferred that I was saying he had less right to refuse because he's disabled??? If I somehow implied that, it's NOT what I meant. I'm not saying I have absolutely no problems whatsoever with this, but I'm going on good faith that the author here would not have written this story if she thought her brother was horribly traumatized by the incident and was angry at their mother. I don't know that I would want my mother to do this for me (and I'm upset and squicked out especially about her violation of his privacy re: ejaculation)--I have basically NEVER talked to my mother about sex--but I'm a very lucky person in that I don't know what it's like to be disabled/raise a child with a disability that I know is fatal so I feel wary of judging this act too harshly.
@Hellcat Ha, you beat me to it I guess! But I actually remember the actor's name (Corin Nemec, I swear I didn't have to look it up which is depressing) and when I looked at his IMDB he has played not only Ted Bundy but also Richard Speck. OMG Corin, srsly.
@Hellcat She (Wendy, the blond chick, whose name I'm too lazy to google) played the popular girl on an episode of Parker Lewis Can't Lose who had the party where she invited people by giving them a slap bracelet and oh my god I'm so full of useless information it's sickening.
Please congratulate me for being the first person to mention Parker Lewis Can't Lose during this millenium.
@Hellcat I LOVED Just the Ten of Us for some inexplicable reason, and I look back on it fondly even now...for some inexplicable reason.
@MsChilePepper Seeing Tom Skerritt in Seattle is not a feat! The man is everywhere all the time! (Said a Seattleite, joshingly.)
@katzenklavier OMG, for a second I read that wrong and was like "a crush on Tommy Lee??!!?? Noooooooooooo, I can't relate, oh wait, Tommy Lee JONES, now you're speakin' my language."
@Carrie W. Aw, a young Michael Jackson alone at the zoo is such a sad, sweet thought.
@laurel I don't know, I kind of assumed that if he had a really big problem with it or felt that uncomfortable, he could have just not had sex with Monique (and who knows, maybe he didn't and just said he did). It seems that if she was experienced in this type of situation (meaning paid sexual encounters with the disabled, or with anyone maybe), she would understand that her client might have difficulties or be otherwise reluctant. And Danny didn't have mental disabilities, which might mean he would think he would have to do it because Mom (or this lady) said he did, or that he would be unable to give consent.
@Carrie W. Michael Jackson, whoa. The closest I came was seeing a Michael Jackson impersonator on Hollywood Blvd, and I overheard this little kid walking away saying to his mom, "I CAN'T BELIEVE I MET MICHAEL JACKSON!"
