    Reason: Mentions of child sexual abuse and pedophilia

    Bob
    "We're both men right?" Doesn't give you a right to touch kids!
    Gender: Male
    Type: Masaya Kimura but even worse
    Age: Around 40s
    Species: Human
    Portrayed by: Paul Holme
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: A Good Boy (PSA film)


    Bob is the main antagonist of Stairway Foundation's 2005 PSA animated short film A Good Boy. He is a rich Australian-accented man who travels to the Philippines looking for poor boys to molest at a local hotel. He was voiced by Paul Holme.

    Why He Intentionally Got Plenty of Time in Jail

    Important note: This character is extremely controversial on purpose for reasons explained below. Only two positive pointers will be permitted on this page. Anyone on this wiki who tries to add more positive pointers/redeeming qualities will have their edits reverted for multiple reasons listed below.

    1. Since this is a pedophilia PSA, he is just a vile and disgusting character in which his acts could be incredibly disturbing for most viewers.
    2. Throughout the entire film, he manipulates Jason into being his friend, and forces him to keep the secret of him being abused! And even forces him to keep his promise of "being a good boy".
    3. He also grooms Jason by giving him money, taking him to Hotel Paradise and a swimming pool called Beach Inn, giving him gifts, and taking a naked photo of him.
      • What doesn't help is that Beach Inn is an only boys swimming pool where there were grown men and little boys naked (although covered) in the swimming pool.
    4. Because of the film limited's animation, his design looks somehow pretty generic and uninspired as he looks more like a Static Shock rejected character.
    5. He also manipulates Jason into thinking that touching his private parts and kissing him is "okay" because they're both men. Which is considered both sexual assault and molestation.
    6. While turning into a blanket that sinks Jason (presumably a metaphor), it means he raped Jason to the point that he became depressed and suicidal.
    7. It doesn't help that in the original version of the story, it says that he got away with raping Jason.[1] Making him a Karma Houdini.
    8. Despise "helping" Jason to buy some food, it doesn't help either that the money he give to Jason makes him to buy only a little bit of rice, which could led him to be starved since he lives in the streets.
    9. Additionally, he doesn't even care for Jason and other boys living in the streets, which could lead to his infamous acts like it was mentioned before.

    Intentional Redeeming Qualities

    1. He got karma and his comeuppance by being punched in the face by Raffy and arrested by the cops at the end of the film.
      • Although this is because according to the creators of the film, they wanted to put a positive ending to it as opposed to the original version.
    2. Paul Holme did an amazing job voicing him.

    References

    1. "The ending of the original story is quite different from the animated version, which offers resolution and hope. In the original story the boy Jason, who is the victim of Bob (pedophile), did not escape the web of the perpetrator. Instead, he was made to render his services as a sex object for all of Bob’s friends, who in return provided financial assistance to Jason’s family."
