WNYT – The photos are a source of aggravation for parents. One of the pictures, which was posted on Facebook, shows what appears to be a female stripper straddling a teenager. Her legs wrapped tightly around his face. It happened at Spare Time bowling alley in South Glens Falls. Parents of a child who was turning 16 apparently hired two strippers as a birthday present and invited the boy’s friends—boys and girls— to the surprise party. It seems the parents of the guests got a huge unwelcome surprise when they found out what happened.A person claiming to be the mother of a 15-year-old who attended the party, sent a letter to The Post-Star, anonymously, saying she was shocked when her son told her about the lap dances given to teens.”Obviously we’re very concerned about this kind of conduct if it happened the way we believe it happened,” said Jim Murphy, Saratoga County District Attorney. “I can’t imagine that a parent would participate in the arrangement of that, but yes, if a parent was involved in the arrangement of this, strippers at a 16-year-old birthday party, then potentially he or she could be charged with endangering the welfare of a child,” Murphy said.
I always get a kick out of stories like these. “Like oh my god a 16 year old had strippers at his birthday party! How will they survive! The world is coming to an end! Avert your eyes! Avert your eyes!” Listen I’m not saying it’s right what happened. I agree that theoretically parents shouldn’t be hiring strippers for their sons birthday party and not letting the other parents know about it first. But spare me all this righteous indignation bullshit. 16 is the new 30. Kids are fucking in first grade nowadays. So cut the shit with this endangering the welfare of a child routine. Because if this is endangering the welfare of a child then so is sending kids to high school. The only real crime here is how disgusting the strippers were. Gross city.
