Sure, sure, you’ve all heard the jokes about statutory rape and incest in a few states – Arkansas and Virginia come to mind – but I always kind of thought they were jokes.
But, apparently it’s a real problem. Big enough that the Department of Health in Virginia has launched a new ad campaign – including highway billboards – that urge men not to have sex with an underage girl. Catchphrases like “isn’t she a little young?” and “sex with a minor. don’t go there.” are all part of this in-your-face campaign.
Too funny. Just more proof that truth is stranger than fiction.
If anyone finds snapshots of the actual billboards, please send me an email. I’m dying to see them! 🙂
