Debate Guide: Child abuse industry
Thus, society develops a greater level of fear and sex - negativity, encouraging psychopaths to 'play out' the role of the 'sadistic pedophile'. Society develops an unhealthy 'fear vs fascination' complex, inspiring yet more folk tales. False meanings are attached to harmless activities, false memories are implanted and retrieved by gold - rush Cowboy therapists, and the value of abusers 'shutting up' the real victims of abuse increases. In a culture of frigidity and vigilance, more and more people report abuse. Every man becomes a 'potential offender', whilst the charities, of course, are sacred and unchallengeable. Predictably, the donations roll in, campaigners land careers, possibly fame and who knows, maybe even get their hands into the safe.
In light of the above, what would best suit a 'violent abuse' charity as already described? A new campaign! It makes sense not to put all of your eggs in one basket, and besides, the more we fire up the moral majority, the more we will rake in. The focus of our new campaign is best centred on something that is already taboo and despised (best start with the mob on our side), hidden (nothing better to raise suspicion) and supposedly linked to our previous successful campaign on violence. It makes absolute economic sense that we promote ourselves as the saviours of sexually abused children.
In one example of charitable activism, the NSPCC sent postcards to British schools, in an attempt to convince youths that any sex between an adult and a minor is abusive. Previously, 88% of these young people had correctly assumed that a relationship between a 15 year old boy and a 23 year old woman was non - abusive. Also, as can be seen in the 'leaflets' link, 'Stop it now' have published a poster, titled 'JUST GOOD FRIENDS?', depicting two kids running for an embrace, followed by the text:
- "Of course children and young people need the opportunity to explore and develop sexually throughout their childhood. But they also need help in setting boundaries when relating to their brothers, sisters, cousins and friends. What appears to be a safe and mutual activity may in fact be harmful".
Here we have evidence of this charity blatantly fearmongering, and thus creating false problems that contribute to the sustainment of its own funding. Indeed, one of their leaflets contains these gems:
- "Children, particularly in the younger age groups, may engage in such behaviour with no knowledge that it is wrong or abusive".
- "Sometimes abusers make children believe that they enjoyed it and wanted it to happen".
Always remember that whatever a charity does, it's basically a business struggling for its own survival. If they eradicate or fail to construct the problem that they claim to stem / remedy they will lose their jobs. For example, we hear this, concerning the 'debriefing' of under-age camwhores:
- "Young people often argue with you that what they're doing is what they want to do and the person on the Internet is really their boyfriend, they weren't sexually exploited and they wanted to raise their shirts and show their breasts over the Internet ... It takes a lot of debriefing and deprogramming to get those children to view themselves as victims, which they truly are, a compliant victim." (Rosalind Prober, Beyond Borders)
Charity is only one area of vested interest, though. Governments and therapists are also putting huge amounts of pressure on researchers, with organisations like the Leadership Council, composed of psychological therapists and other parties who go on to coordinate and produce favourable research.
