Spider-Man and Power Pack would like to pause a moment for some sexual abuse PSA bewilderment

March 5, 2012

I referenced this ad in a Power Pack/Spider-Man post from about a month ago, and thought I’d put it up for completeness’ sake. I remember it quite well. I was smack dab in the middle of its target audience, but its (necessarily) vague wording left young me totally confused about what I was supposed to be guarding against. So if I’m in a bitchy mood, and one of my parents pats me on the shoulder, I should report that to the nearest constable? Is that it?

That there are adults out in the world that like nothing better than fondling children — and much, much worse — is a hard thing to explain to a kid. This well-intentioned PSA does a little to get the ball rolling, but it may raise more questions in youthful minds than it answers. It did for me. That’s all I’m saying.
