“It’s IMPORTANT for people to understand that images and video depicting child porn are a REALITY in Ontario”

“You need to know that these people are our neighbours, relatives and friends. These are people we invite into our worlds because we trust them.”

“Some of these victims are so young they cannot report the crimes because they have not uttered their first word. They cannot say no, they cannot tell anyone and they cannot call the police,” she said.”

This is a difficult subject to read and ponder, but the reality is much worse for the children … I know from experience.

Some say pedophiles have inherent behavior that drives them, others say what has been done to them, they pass on to others, and others say those who have been abused often act out their experience in other ways, such as becoming bullies, mean bosses, etc.

Statistics reveal much more harm is being inflicted on the vulnerable … children, women, gays, seniors, and anyone who doesn’t fit into the pack mentality … whether the harm is neglect, abuse, sexual abuse, or violence.

Yes, it is horrible what some adults do to children, but the solution does not solely rely on blaming, apprehension and punishment, but by the cultural change needed to reduce and prevent pedophilia by raising people’s Respect Levels so that even if they may feel compelled, they are empowered to consciously choose not to act on such impulses … that is how we protect and save the children … working together by broadening our knowledge, our willingness to be part of the solution, and the expansion of our compassion for all those involved … because we all have the power and the need to address positively the challenges life presents to us all.

Ultimately, WE ALL PAY for the Acts of Others

Wonderful that some men are stepping up and speaking out, but the thing is, domestic violence is everyone’s problem because whether a person is the abuser, the abused, or the bystanders, there are consequences that include others, including society, which we all pay for in the short term and long run.

FEMICIDE Report Reveals, in Canada, Especially in Ontario, Women and Girls Are Being Killed Every Other Day Because They Are Women and Girls

Excerpts from the new report ..
Worldwide, women face the greatest risk of femicide in the context of their intimate relationships with men and this is true for women in Canada as well.
In the first eight months of 2018, 106 women and girls have been killed in Canada, primarily by men. On average, this is one woman or girl killed every other day in this country – a consistent trend for four decades
The CFOJA (Canadian Femicide Observatory for Justice and Accountability) defines femicide as the killing of women and girls because they are women and girls primarily, but not exclusively, by men.
1. Femicide is a distinct form of homicide that warrants its own label. When women and girls are killed, it is almost always by men in the context of their intimate relationships and/or the result of sexual violence. This is very different from the killings of men, which are more commonly the result of male-on-male violence by friends, acquaintances and strangers, a finding that is consistently documented nationally (David, 2017) and
internationally (UNODC 2013).
2. Given the above, regardless of whether the homicide victims are women or men, the perpetrators are most commonly, and overwhelmingly, men. As such, men are commonly both victims and perpetrators of homicide. Women are primarily victims.
3. Finally, the CFOJA is the only Canadian initiative responding to the international call from the United Nations for every country to establish femicide watches or observatories …
  • During the first eight months of 2018, 106 women and girls were killed in Canada, primarily by men. On average, this means that one woman or girl is killed every other day in this country, a consistent trend during the past four decades.
  • There is increasing attention to the vulnerability of older women because of their growing representation in the population. Almost one-third of the femicide victims were aged 55 and older, supporting the recognized need for priority attention to this group of victims.
  • Indigenous women and girls continue to be over represented as victims of femicide
  • Almost half of the femicide victims were killed in their homes. This means that women are at greatest risk where they should feel safest.
  • Shooting was the most common method of killing where this information was documented.
  • One-third of identified accused were male partners of the victims. Three-quarters of these accused were still in an intimate partner relationship with the victim and one quarter were in dating relationships. These patterns underscore the importance of pending Criminal Code changes to capture dating relationships and current legislation which directs judges to treat intimacy as an aggravating factor in sentencing.

Consequences of Controlling and Sterilizing Children’s Play

“When my daughter was about 10, my husband suddenly realized that in her whole life, she had probably not spent more than 10 minutes unsupervised by an adult. Not 10 minutes in 10 years.”

“In the real world, life is filled with risks—financial, physical, emotional, social—and reasonable risks are essential for children’s healthy development.”

“Now our working assumption is that children cannot be trusted to find their way around tricky physical or social and emotional situations.”

“… watched as one by one the playgrounds in her neighborhood were transformed into sterile, boring places. Sandseter had written her master’s dissertation on young teens and their need for sensation and risk; she’d noticed that if they couldn’t feed that desire in some socially acceptable way, some would turn to more-reckless behavior. She wondered whether a similar dynamic might take hold among younger kids as playgrounds started to become safer and less interesting.”

“Children, she concluded, have a sensory need to taste danger and excitement; this doesn’t mean that what they do has to actually be dangerous, only that they feel they are taking a great risk. That scares them, but then they overcome the fear.”

“Even today, growing up is a process of managing fears and learning to arrive at sound decisions … but if they never go through that process, the fear can turn into a phobia.”
