“The thing is, it’s interesting that anyone would call me a child molester because what I think that does is belittles true child molesters, the ones out there that are really molesting children. We can’t do that. My and Courtney’s marriage is legal, it’s moral and its within the law. I’m not a child molester, so anyone who says that I’m not going to take it to heart. I only care about what my loved ones think about me and no one else. We wake up in each others’ arms in the morning and start our day together. We take care of our puppies. We feed the puppies and let them out. Courtney gets on the computer to tweet and I take care of business on the computer. Then we come together during segments of the day, and then in the evening we have dinner and watch ‘I Love Lucy’ episodes. Within our house, we are extremely normal.”
And after that quote, Doug said “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” No, really, he actually did say that.
Of course, Doug is right, he isn’t a child molester, he’s an ephebophile, but that doesn’t mean that what he did is “normal.” He married a 16-year-old girl he met online. That’s some To Catch A Predator shit, that’s not normal.
Also, I think it’s really interesting how he says that he doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him besides his loved ones. In case you weren’t aware, Doug’s entire family disowned him after he married Courtney. His own mother told him that she didn’t want anything to do with him. But for sure, it only matters what his loved ones think of him, which I guess is just Courtney at this point. Solid reasoning.
But hey, look at that picture of Doug up there. Isn’t that just the creepiest? Look into his eyes, for the eyes are the windows into the soul. Those are some shady windows, huh?
