Fire DJ who advised a man to have someone 'screw [his] daughter straight'

"Rovers Morning Glory" is a popular morning show on Cleveland's 100.7 FM Radio. The morning of Friday April 27, 2012, Dominic Dieter, a cast member on the show, read a letter from a father who had written in to say that he'd caught his adolescent daughter kissing another girl.

On the air, Dominic Dieter then stated:

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

For a public figure with a wide audience to make a statement like this is unconscionable. He is openly advocating the rape of a teenager, as a tool to alter her sexuality. There is no scientifically compelling evidence that sexual orientation can be successfully changed, and certainly not by rape. It is not possible to "screw someone straight." The implication that it is furthers the kind of bigoted myths that lead to actual sexual assaults on members of the LGBTQ community, and women everywhere.

I am calling on Clear Channel Communications and the leadership of WMMS 100.7 FM Radio Cleveland to take swift and decisive action. Fire Dominic Dieter and show your listeners that statements like Dominic Dieter's have no place on your airwaves!
