In 1999, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer article “Back to school: Parents urged to discuss sex, safety” points to the King County Sexual Assault Resource Center reports that one in three girls and one in five boys will be sexually assaulted by the time they are 16 years old [John N. Briere, Child Abuse Trauma (Newbury Park, CA: Sage Publications, 1992); Diana E. Russell, The Secret Trauma: Incest in the Lives of Girls and Women (New York: Basic Books, Inc.,
Ira A. Lipman writes in How to Protect Yourself from Crime:
Depending on their relationship to the children, molesters use a wide variety of tactics to lure children. A family member might feign love and affection; a teacher, member of the clergy, police officer, or baby-sitter might use his or her position of authority; an older friend or companion might utilize games or
pornography;ia stranger might try bribery, requests for assistance, or citing an emergency.4
Child actors Corey Haim and Corey Feldman suffered abuse in a Hollywood environment conducive to exploitation. The New York Post’s Larry Getlen describes:
Haim confided in his new friend that on the set of the 1986 film “Lucas,” “an adult male convinced him that it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was what all the guys do. So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers
. . .and Haim allowed himself to be sodomized.”
Haim then followed this shocking tale with a question.
“So,” he said to his new bestie. “I guess we should play around like that,
The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) even publishes instructions on how to lure children. The Child-Safety-For-Parents.com website addresses the “Surprising Habits of The Female Pedophile”:
Back in 1984, a study done by Finkelhor & Russell estimated that about 5% of female children and 20% of male children exposed to sexual predation were abused by women. More recent research among victims suggests that the rate of female predation is alarmingly higher than we thought back
Men tend to use more physical coercion while women are more emotionally manipulative in their sexual abuse. But women can be just as elusive as male pedophiles – their damage just as severe. It’s important not to ever underestimate a female pedophile just because of her gender. Officials typically break female offenders down into one of three different categories:
- Women who target kids ages 6 and under,
- Women who target adolescents, and
- Women who molest kids with their partner.
Each category is surprisingly different in their motives and feelings toward their
According to a June 2000 Yahoo! News report, the FBI’s Pete Gulotta noted that “the people who commit these crimes against children are bright people. Many of them are above-average intelligence, with more money than most, professionals. We’ve arrested elementary school principals, military officers, computer programmers, attorneys, accountants, even a Broadway
In November 2013, a Canadian child pornography bust saved nearly 400 children and nabbed 348 adults involved in the abuse. Toronto police reported:
Of concern to the investigators were the sheer number who had close contact to children. The arrests included 40 schoolteachers, 9 doctors and nurses, 32 people who volunteered with children, 6 law enforcement personnel, 9 pastors or priests, and 3 foster
With the invention of the Internet, predators can search for websites containing child pornography and troll for young victims in chat rooms. Some may even attempt to meet the child in person. In 1999, for example, Disney’s Go Network’s Infoseek search engine executive vice president Patrick Naughten admitted to traveling across state lines to meet a child for sex. The codeveloper of the Java programming language agreed to a plea bargain to develop software to catch other predators like
In 2006, Department of Homeland Security press aide Brian J. Doyle “allegedly provided his government-issued office phone and cell phone numbers, showed off his department ID and may have used his official computer in…communications with an
Also in 2006, Florida House Representative Mark Foley was accused of “making sexual overtures to boys working as attendants in Congress,” writes Stephanie Griffith for theage.com.au. Senior Capitol Hill aide Kirk Forham warned House Speaker Dennis Hastert’s office more than three years before about Foley’s inappropriate behaviour. The article continues:
Kirk Fordham, a close friend of Mr Foley, resigned on [4 October] as chief of staff for Tom Reynolds, a powerful Republican leader in the House of Representatives, to protect Mr Reynolds from being further implicated in charges of covering up Mr Foley’s alleged predatory behaviour towards teenage
While law enforcement attempts to catch predators before they can abuse, pedophile social workers, psychiatrists, police and judges take positions where they can intercept and cover-up accusations of abuse. In 1996, Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) Child Protective Services (CPS) social worker

Sigmund Freud tried to expose the extent of child sexual abuse, but his initial presentation brought peer reprisals. He retracted his assertion of a connection between “hysteria” and abuse, and controversy over his “seduction theory” has raged ever
Today we are discovering how neglect can cause hyperactivity, abuse can cause borderline personality
As many as 70 percent of the victims of sexual assault do not experience visible injury. This does not mean, however, that the trauma associated with the assault is insignificant. Victims who have no obvious physical injuries may experience extensive trauma related to the guilt associated with not having the physical injuries to prove that they resisted and are not “at fault” for the assault perpetrated on them. Indeed, some of the most devastating effects on victims include guilt, shame, embarrassment, powerlessness, fear, anger, and a sense of betrayal [Kilpatrick, D, Edmonds, C, & Seymour, A (1992). Rape in America: A Report to the Nation. Charleston: National Victim Center and Crime Victims Research and Treatment Center, Medical University of South Carolina, 4].
A typical reaction of someone who has been sexually assaulted is denial that the abuse occurred and a great desire to forget about the incident [Darke, J. L. (1990). Sexual Aggression: Achieving Power through Humiliation, in Handbook of Sexual Assault: Issues, Theories, and Treatment of the Offender, WL Marshall, DR Laws, and HE Barbaree (eds.). Plenum Press, New York, NY,
“Verizon needs to show some corporate responsibility. America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography and that harm falls particularly hard on children,” [Patrick Trueman, President and CEO of Morality in Media,] told FOX411. “We are coordinating with the members of our coalition, numbering 146 groups across the U. S., to alert the public to Verizon’s pornography distribution. We have notified the board of Verizon through letters of our position on Verizon’s distribution of pornography. We will publish responses from the board and will continue to press and shame the board if no action is taken.”

|“Anastasia came to a decision-making fork in the road. To take the path to the left meant that she would remain in the gloomy past and continue an endless journey of doom. To choose the right path meant making an all important choice of letting go of the past to move forward with purpose and conviction to a brighter and more eventful future. The choice was hers! Anastasia decided that she wanted to see the light at the end of the tunnel more than anything else in the world, so she stood before the ugliness of her past for the last time, said good-bye, and she headed rightward through a tunnel towards the pin of light that lay ahead of her.” Page 13-14. © Anita E.
