This is a great podcast on fans of Gary Glitter who are still devoted to him. Many of them, like me, believe he probably was guilty of downloading child porn, but that many of the other allegations made against him were probably been false. Some of them did (kind of) point out the hypocrisy that banging underage girls in the 1970s was kind of normal, but fell short of pointing out that it is perfectly OK.
Obviously, my position is that Gary Glitter’s crimes were perfectly fine. There is nothing wrong with viewing child porn, and nor is there anything wrong with having sex with girls below the age of consent.
This podcast suddenly makes me think though… Maybe to get attention we should create a Gary Glitter fan site? (psst Tom Grauer!). Unlike this site our fan site would be both pro Gary Glitter’s music and pro his crimes. We’d support him for downloading child porn and support him for his underage groupies.
