Do law enforcement officers and courts of law and psychiatrists/psychologists need to know what happened?
Sure. But it isn’t necessary for them to have an alleged victim go into highly detailed artistic descriptions of biological functions.
That would be just so much voyeurism that re-victimizes the alleged victim, even and especially if the alleged victim wants to do this in an effort to get help in the way traumatized people can sometimes do this, that is, by replaying highly emotional or even apparently emotionally devoid renditions of the incident(s) before other supposedly good people, testing them to see if such people are doing what they are doing merely for voyeuristic reasons, a last ditch effort to see, if possible, a good example of respect and goodness and kindness even while running headlong into possible temptations of cynicism and bitterness and despair and the sense of power and revenge that that so very, very sadly can, for some, bring in a wake of now magnified trauma.
Those who force or who ever so willingly permit such highly detailed artistic descriptions of biological functions are simply voyeurs re-gang-raping a victim for the ulterior motive of self-congratulations for supposedly being on the side of the victims, while only doing this the whole time so as to flout a self-righteousness which feeds off the sufferings of others. It would be difficult to find a more ugly, brutal character, who is nevertheless portrayed as a knight in shining armor by sycophantic followers who use this mob mentality as a way to beat down anyone else who isn’t already with them in their ever so sickening effort to promote their own nicey-niceness, this having absolutely nothing to do with any real concern for alleged victims. Zero. Zilch. It’s truly monstrous. Cruel. Such people are abusers, crassly taking advantage of deep vulnerabilities.
Outside of law enforcement and the judicial system, can one discuss even specific cases in such a way that one knows what happened without descending into what can only be considered pornographic detail? Sure. For instance, Dawn Eden has done that (here), as has yours truly:
- [Part 1 HERE - suffering a failed but violent rape]
- [Part 2 HERE - unwitting stardom in kiddie-porn films]
- [Part 3 HERE - a suggestion]
- [Part 4 HERE- angels!]
- [Part 5 HERE - responding to some comments.]
But wait a minute there, hermit guy! There are plenty of nice writers who sell lots of nice books based on what they claim are details necessary for shock value. Surely, shock value, even if it is disgusting, is the only way to end the problem! Get over your prudishness! Shame the guilty by shoving their faces in what they’ve done! The more detail, the better! We’ve gotta stop this!
So, it’s not about the victims, then? It’s about being a self-styled crusader who’s, you know, mature enough, you know, to go into extreme detail about such things[*], but in this way using the victims as weapons for one’s own agenda of bringing about a change not in the fact of abuse but in who is doing the abusing, namely, these unscrupulous authors who bludgeon readers with the corpses of kids. To such authors, it’s only about carcases devoid of personhood. Victims are objectified as utilitarian playthings of the bully. Nothing more. Right? Tell me you agree.
[*] In fact, an abuser once confronted me, saying that he was mature enough to abuse others, because, he said, incredibly, he didn’t get anything out of it, and that it was a favor to the local community. Yep. Don’t try to see the logic in that. Error is error because it is unreasonable. And… and… Error has no rights. That situation will be an entire chapter in the autobiography, please God.
Anyone with even a shred of charity and respect for others would immediately sense that the claim to being indignant by such authors on behalf of victims is no more than a betrayal of the victims and, therefore, stop reading immediately. One can come across such things in reading the articles of respected authors who, as one then finds out, just don’t get it. I’ve had people send me books on abuse, some of them written in such a style. I never read them. No apologies.
Suggestion: Such authors and all their sycophantic supporters need to stop their public gang-raping of victims by way of the written word, and then apologize, and then write of their conversion, and then truly support real solutions. It’s the only way to bring about real justice, real mercy, indeed, the goodness and kindness of the Lord into the situation.
