  •  I have to say, though (4+ / 0-)

    that the part of the diary that talks about needing to educate children about owning their own bodies makes sense to me, as does the need for dealing with the fact that most child molesters are family members or authority figures (teachers, clergy) who are known both to child and parents.  

    I come from a family with multi-generational abuse, where it seems all the previous generation learned was to keep family secrets.  Protecting the family in the abstract meant more than protecting the children.  Ultimately, that means protecting the abuser rather than the victim.  We have to realize that families per se should not be enshrined as some sort of ideal.

    We need to have the kind of sex education for young children that discusses bodies and that the child owns his or her own body.  And has children make plans of who they can tell when abuse is going on.

    When shit happens, you get fertilized.
