The tread about lurkers got me thinking. I have a cousin that I have not seen since I was about 8 years old. He was an only child; his parents had Siamese cats. They let everyone know, including my cousin, that they preferred the cats and that he was, well, a little unexpected. Anyway, I never thought much about him, not even Christmas cards as he always seemed a little ..well..different. So, a few years ago, I hear he gets arrested for being a peeper. How creepy is that? He got arrested looking in somebodys window. God knows if he was looking at a man or woman. What a sick f*ck. So, hes married, and obviously this has a big impact on the marriage. He has kids, etc. etc. He stays out of jail, wife separates, he looses his job, on and on. So here are the questions: 1. Does anyone else have real creeps in their family (that they will admit to)? Do I get kicked off of F-chat since I have a peeper? 2. How many peepers do you think are out there? 3. What psychopathology makes a peeper? 4. Most importantly, why, of all the deviant behavior, do we have a cutsie-wutsie name for some creepy sexual maladjusted deviant that looks in peoples Levolars and pulls his pud? I mean, we dont call a rapist a rapie-wapie or a pedophile a kiddie-gettie. But we have a cute name for this wanker. A peeper. How cute. Cousin Joes a peeper. How quaint and darling. Give me a break. No offense intended to any F-chat peepers, rapist, pedophiles or other losers.
