This has got to be the best Risk! show I have had the pleasure to listen to. Jackie Hoffman’s story had me laughing out loud, while Caroline Weiss’ incredible tale sent shivers down my spine. Truly spectacular.
Normally I love the show and am a long-time listener and promoter. Yet I had to stop listening to the final story. In the same way we as a culture have developed cultural sensitivity in our choice of words referring to folks of various sexual preferences or ethnic heritages we also need to develop the same sensitivity in differentiating women from girls in sexual contexts. Referring to girls in sexualized situations is pedophilia. The storyteller speaks of “weed shops with GIRLS in lingerie” and the “GIRL named Rebecca…” who might fulfill the 28-year old’s quest for sex. If it involves sex, it’s pedophilia with a girl. If she is an adult, referring to a women as a girl belittles her and perpetuates the subjugation of women in our culture.
One of the best Risk! shows I’ve listened to! The last story by James Gangl was fantastic, and the Caroline Weiss story was amazing. Always good to hear a story like that with a happy ending!
@Sondra, I won’t resort to name calling… wait… yeah, you’re retarded. If you get offended over something that stupid, then RISK! is not for you.
