Victims of Photographer Terry Richardson Speak Up and Have a Voice

“I was a shy kid,” he has said, “and now I’m this powerful guy with a boner, dominating all these girls.”

This “powerful guy with a boner” should be sued for his actions and so should all the brands that knew what he was doing but turned a blind eye because the end justified the means. They got the prize cover photo they needed and the victims, well, oh-well.

Vatican Sexual Abuse Panel-What Happened to It? What Are Their Findings?

Panel for Vatican Accountability Protocols is a successful move for the Vatican. But not so much for children. For children’s safety, this is another setback … because it will help foster the false impression of reform and will lead to more complacency. Does the church hierarchy really need a panel on the protection of minors? […]

Olympic swimming & their coaches: Sometimes sexual predators–Shari Karney Speaks Out

We need to use the proper language: Calling this a relationship implies it is between consenting adults. You don’t have a consenting relationship between a 13-year old swimmer and a 33 year old Olympic coach. This is another Sandusky coach-predator action except this one is taking place in the swimming pool instead of the shower. Again, a coach preys on a child athlete. The 13-year old is an Olympic Swimmer named Kelley Davies Currin. She is now 43-years old. She stifled this for 23 years because she signed a piece of paper when she was nineteen.

In my opinion where a coach sexually molests a 13-year old girl for four years, and is around pre-pubescent girls in bathing suits all the time…it is likely there are going to be other victims. I find it highly unlikely that Kelley is the only one. With Sandusky, after the first boy came forward, nine other child victims followed and told their harrowing stories.

I would like to support swimmers, children and child athletes to give them the strength to come forward and speak out. I am asking for an investigation by U.S. Olympics Committee and FBI and lets hope that Louis Freeh does a report. The FBI needs to investigate since adult predators cross State lines with their child/teen Olympic Contenders, and even cross to foreign countries.

What’s Your Favorite Woody Allen Movie? Shari Karney Comments on Child Sexual Abuse Letter by Dylan Farrow

What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: when I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me.
