Gary Glitter Faces Seven Years For Pedophilia

What a nasty piece of work:

Faded British rocker Gary Glitter faces up to seven years in a Vietnamese prison if found guilty of child molestation charges this week in southern Vietnam.

His two-day trial on charges of committing lewd acts with two girls, aged 10 and 11, begins Thursday in closed session at the courthouse in Ba Ria-Vung Tau province. The crime carries a prison sentence ranging from three to seven years.

The aging singer, who won fame during the 1970s as a glam rocker with a penchant for bouffant wigs and sequin jumpsuits, has been accused of kissing, fondling, and "engaging in other physical acts" with the girls at his rented villa in the port city of Vung Tau, located about 125 kilometers (78 miles) southeast of Ho Chi Minh City.

...

Glitter has said he was teaching the girls English at his home and considered them "like his grandchildren." He has admitted to police that the 11-year-old girl slept in his room because she was afraid of ghosts, but denied inappropriate behavior, his attorney said.

And the reason she put her hand down his pants? Why, that's where he keeps the "ghost repellent," of course. Where do you keep yours, buddy?


Not quite so "glam" anymore, huh?
He looks like a fucking turtle.


Correction: I wrongly said he was accused of pederasty, which is usually used to describe man-on-boy love. But, as it turns out, not exclusively. M-w.com defines a pederast as...

one that practices anal intercourse especially with a boy

So actually that word isn't appropriate here (although, who knows). I've changed the headline to say "Pedophila," which is the word I think I was looking for in the first place.

Thanks to Aldolfo, and also, to that pederast Hanorhan.

Spot the Pedophile: This site claims you can spot a pedophile by a characteristic smirk/grin, or "pedosmile." There's a quiz for it, which I think sort of really demolishes their theory, because half the pedophiles on the list simply don't have the "pedosmile" at all.

And yet the quiz tells you you're wrong by saying "Guess again, asshole," which I found very hurtful.

Thanks to Adolfo.
