Not all of us are aware that when we warn our children not to talk to strangers and not to get into cars of people you don’t know… the statistics show that the person most likely to abuse a child is someone close to them, like a parent, teacher or older relative.
These are the predators we need to protect our children from… as well as the “boogie man down the alleyway”. Remember that women sexually abuse too. Leaving a child with a female doesn’t necessarily mean they’re automatically safe from sexual abuse.
“Any child is at risk of being sexual abused. It’s important to remember that both boys and girls can be sexually abused.
Most children who’ve been sexual abused were abused by someone they know. This could be a family member, a friend or someone who has targeted them – like a teacher or sports coach.”
“If a child reveals abuse If a child talks to you about sexual abuse it’s important to:
listen carefully to what they’re saying let them know they’ve done the right thing by telling you tell them it’s not their fault say you’ll take them seriously don’t confront the alleged abuser explain what you’ll do next report what the child has told you as soon as possible.”
Here’s New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist preacher Jonathan Shelley just going on a wildly anti-Semitic rant in church yesterday.
The assumptions are ridiculous and he’s so full of anger it’s wild. Does he know that other races are doctors and lawyers?
Study and learning are valued by many people, including Jewish people. Does he hate all Doctors and Lawyers or is it just the Jewish ones??
If there was a god and they healed people there would be no Doctors. We wouldn’t need them!
However disturbing it is to hear someone so blatantly hating the Jewish Community, it’s also good that it’s been recorded and put online so people know what this man is about
A genuine Christian wouldn’t hate other people just for existing and being themselves. He is a disgrace and shouldn’t be associated with genuine Christians who are about love and compassion and respecting others. Not about hate.
Subject – Logan Dorn harassing teenage girls on the beach for – shock horror 🙄 – wearing bikinis!
If this dude didn’t want the 9 and 6 year olds boys to see women – actually teenage girls – in bikinis, he shouldn’t have taken them to the beach. Problem solved.
Once again we have a man trying to tell young girls how to dress to suit HIM. Move away man!! It’s not that hard to do.
The condescending attitude towards the group of girls is awful. He’s so patronising and trying to preach to them to explain why they’re wearing bikinis on the beach!!! It’s a freaking beach!!!!
The last 15 seconds of this story is what made me laugh. He thought he could harass these girls and get away with it. Nope! Social media is savage and after the video went viral people went for him to get his name and place of work! And yup! You guessed it!! He’s got fired.
Well done to Mighty Hand Construction in Colorado who have done the right thing by firing a man harassing girls. I wish more companies did this.
I’m still baffled why adult men think that going up to a group of girls and asking them why they’re wearing bikinis is acceptable??? And then talking about their bodies! Dude. Wow.
Oh wow 😭 seriously Jack Peterson this is disgusting. I’m going to assume he’s doing this for attention.
Wanting women to have Human Rights taken away from them shows an insane mind 🙄😡 “woman are lower than men. Women should be submissive to men. Women shouldn’t be allowed to vote. They should stay home. Shouldn’t be allowed in the workplace etc…”
So let me get this straight.
Jack, actively chose to be in a gay relationship and is now blaming women?
No one forced him into a his relationship he chose it he needs to face facts. He really needs help because he is delusional.
Both genders have their issues. Both have said issues because of their gender. If u can’t admit that your so far biased it’s sad.
Be proud of who you are Jack!! And welcome to the LGBTQ 🏳️🌈 community 😳
Just finished listening to the first podcast on Plathville and I appreciate you mentioning that there was another podcaster Kate Casey who interviewed them both.
I found it so insightful and so so sad because there’s always someone who is gonna be hurt whatever they do…
One thing that did jump out at me was that they mentioned that Kim – the mum – doesn’t do any housework and the kids pretty much do everything themselves. I think the phrase they used was “we brought ourselves and our siblings up on our own”.
Then I watched the second episode and this little clip just broke my heart. You can see the mum playing a harp while her daughters are hoovering and washing up and doing all the housework. And Lydia is praying. In the closet. This little clip of 27 seconds summed it up for me.
I know she’s trying to portray herself as a good mother who is totally devoted to her kids. Yet Ethan said that it was his dad who was available to them as kids and she never was. So many things make sense now.
As a survivor of a religious cult I always find these episodes triggering. However when I see how the older children are able to leave and move away from that brainwashed mentality it makes me genuinely happy for them.
Obviously I don’t know what happens with Ethan and Olivia but wow… how sad does Ethan look all the time…. I wonder if it’s depression and or something else going on? Heartbreaking to see such pain and despair in his eyes…
Anyone else understand what I mean or is it just me who sees these things??
April 2016 was the last time I saw my niece. We weren’t allowed to talk to each other since April 2015 but we were both at an event and met there.
I’ll never forget the way both she and her older sister who were both young teenagers whispered to me when no one was looking that they would go to the bathroom and that I should follow a few minutes later.
I knew it would be a one off chance so I grabbed it with both hands. Looking around and making sure I wasn’t being followed I ran upstairs to the bathroom where both of my nieces were waiting for me.
I cannot begin to explain the emotions that went on during those next few minutes before we had to leave. They cried. I cried. They apologised for what was going on and promised they wished they were allowed to see me but had to listen to their parents
They hugged me tighter than I’ve ever hugged anyone knowing this may be the final time we met. The tears wouldn’t stop and I told them that I loved them and was the same person they always knew. I hadn’t changed who I was inside although I looked different. They knew I loved them. I hope they still know that.
I am fully aware of the rabbinic ruling given to their family making it very clear there was to be absolutely no contact ever again. And that stopped instantly. I tried to call and text and got ignored unti eventually I found out why.
I’m no longer angry with them. I understand how much weight the words of a Rabbi carry. I also know that they don’t know any different and for them having contact with me is categorically forbidden.
This niece is getting married tomorrow. I had no idea. Someone told me by mistake. I don’t think I was meant to find out. It hurts that I can’t be there to share in her special day…. And I have no way of contacting her.
I miss you… I love you… I wish I could be there tomorrow… I’m sorry your parents have cut me out your life….
