From the land Down Under comes the story of a father, standing trial in Queensland, Australia, for allegedly forcing his 14-year-old son to sleep with a prostitute because he thought the boy was gay.
The incident alleged occurred in 2007.
The father, whose name is being withheld because, well, I guess even asshats have rights, is said to have called a prostitute and arranged to meet her at a motel. He took his son to the motel, and waited outside while his son did the deed; he even wanted a used condom brought out as proof of the boy's sexual escapade.
But the oddest thing is that the story came to light because the father called Child Protection Investigation Unit in May 2008. The father was angry that the unit had not acted on his suspicions that his son was abusing his younger brother, and then the father admitted to taking the older boy to a prostitute the year before.
The father is being charged with the rape of his son.
And all because he thought the boy was gay.
