Well I thought this would be an easy one. But I was wrong. Granted Ive only spent 1 day looking and researching a few cases. And overall the
research I did to try to pinpoint this has left me a bit sick.
And did rumage up some old memories I didnt want to relive.
Well such is life. And such is trick questions.
Most of these kids 10 years and under really dont understand there is anything wrong with kissing a grown up like that. As thats why its called
grooming. So we are to say its a light offence for sexual grooming. Becasue I could find no proof of kissing leading into PTSD directly.
No cases so far of children getting PTSD from just kissing alone. But I will keep looking in my free time. I think its an important issue.
And I know we both agree on protecting our own children. And the state is a different thing all together.
I guess at the end of the day all we can do is protect "your own". And make sure those around you are safe.
I know this is a tricky issue. And the law can be used to go after someone who honestly did nothing wrong.
Thats why the system is so blind.. It has to be.. If not tons of people would use it as their personal get back at you system.
To many people lie, and try to frame people these days.
But you know who gets hurt..
Those kids with no protection being groomed for later sexual abuse that will most sertinly lead to PTSD. I should know.. Im a victum, and better yet
this happened to me in a church. Where I was groomed by the preist.
Kissing, and being on my knees often to kiss the preists ring on his finger.
I dont even want to get into details..
But If the state would have stepped in and put that preist in jail..
I wouldnt have the issues I have today..
But becasue he was a high standing preist.. When I told on him.. They said hes a preist. He wouldnt do that. He only loves you..
But such is the way of the world.. I deal with it everyday..
So I guess these poor kids are going to have to tuff it out like I did..
