Radio host advises dad to have his daughter raped straight

This is the report from GLAAD:

According to the incident reports (and later confirmed to us by an executive for Clear Channel, the station's parent company), the anti-gay remark was made by Dominic Dieter, one of the "Rover's Morning Glory" cast members. Responding to an e-mail from a father who (for reasons unknown) wrote to the station to say that he'd happened upon his teenage daughter kissing another girl. Deiter responded to the father, on-air, by saying:

"You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight."

This is not okay. Not on any level, and not in any context. We trust that the majority of fair-minded Americans will agree. Make no mistake, if this young woman is, in fact, gay – or if she's simply not interested in having sex with any of her father's friends, then what Dieter is suggesting is rape.

GLAAD is calling for Dieter's suspension, an apology, and for Rover's Morning Glory to produce "a segment speaking about the real harms that can come from parental rejection." 

If you want to let WMNS know your thoughts on all this, you can email them at feedback@wmns.com. Personally, I think he should be fired. I normally believe in second chances, but when you're a grown man saying insanely stupid/offensive/horrifying things — you don't necessarily deserve one. 

Off with his head mic!
