Radio DJ tells father he should have daughter ‘raped’ straight

Cleveland radio personality offers homophobic advice to father of young teen girl

Radio DJ tells father he should have daughter ‘raped’ straight
28 April 2012

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is calling for the suspension of a Cleveland disc jockey who told a father to have his daughter 'screwed straight.'

Yesterday, 27 April, the watchdog organization reported on Cleveland radio personality Dominic Dieter. He is part of 'Rover's Morning Glory,' a show that airs on  WMMS 100.7 FM radio (The Buzzard). Dieter apparently received an email from a father who said he saw his teenage daughter kiss another girl.

'You should get one of your friends to screw your daughter straight,' the radio host said on the air.

The organization is shocked a radio personality offered rape as a solution.

'It was appalling and dangerous for this show to tell a father that he should have one of his friends rape his daughter,' said Aaron McQuade, GLAAD's director of news and field media.  'That's essentially how Dieter responded to this listener, and this is no laughing matter in a world where people are too often the victims of violence and sexual assault based on their actual or perceived sexual orientation. And Dieter gave this vile advice to everyone who was listening, including educators, parents and children – sending the message that it's okay to physically or sexually abuse people who are perceived to be gay.'

The organization does note Dieter's on air colleagues took him to task for his comment, but GLAAD still wants  Clear Channel, the owners of the station, to suspend him. The group also requested a 'sincere apology, and for the show to devote a segment to speaking about the real harms that can come from parental rejection.'
