While being interviewed on Chelsea Lately, actress and singer Stacy Ferguson, a.k.a. Fergie (formerly of the Black Eyed Peas) told Chelsea Handler that her eleven-month-old son, Axl, likes to French kiss her. She described being French kissed by her son as “delicious” (or Fergalicious in her case — a reference to her song from 2006). She added that she plans on cutting it off at a certain age, or else it would be weird.
First of all, the thought of anyone French kissing their mother is weird (and gross), regardless of how old they are. It makes one wonder just how many other people out there are French kissing their parents (hopefully the answer is none).
Second, who taught the kid how to French kiss, let alone tell him what it was?
Third, why is Fergie letting her son do it at all? She should have told him not to do it again on his first attempt.
Fourth, why is Josh Duhamel (Fergie’s husband) allowing this to happen? Just because he French kisses Fergie does not mean their son should follow suit.
Such behavior is not surprising considering how the entertainment industry is plagued with pedophiles (e.g. the late Michael Jackson, who was recently revealed had paid off the families of his victims, which enabled him to be acquitted in 2005). If the average citizen (who was not a celebrity) allowed his or her child to French kiss him or her, they would receive a visit from social services, and possibly end up in jail.
Not only does such behavior border on pedophilia, but it is also incestuous behavior. It is bad enough that in our society we have numerous instances of children being molested, including those who were molested by a relative. I even know some people who have in such situations.
Needless to say, such instances of children being molested by their relatives is a combination of pedophilia and incest. And some of these acts have resulted in inbreeding (e.g. the Blue People of Eastern Kentucky).
These scenarios should not be a total shock, considering how sexual deviants are coming out of the woodwork since same-sex marriages have been legalized in some areas.
Which is why such behavior need to be stopped.
