Think before you speak

 I AM tired of hearing people say they are fed up with reading about sex abuse that has come to light.

Some people question the point of raking this up now that certain offenders are dead.

They obviously have no idea of how it feels to have been abused as a child or an adult or the relief these people feel now they are able to speak about their horrific experience. They know nothing of how it feels to have tried to tell their parent or anyone else of what is happening and to be told they are lying; or to know what it feels like to have to kept “secrets” for years because they have been threatened by the abuser.

To know that even now they may be believed, they still keep quiet or have to face the humiliation of being able to speak to the police or family. Also that it could have been a family member and it could destroy relationships – so even though the person is dead, it is “better” to keep quiet.

So to those who don’t know what it is like, please think before you speak.

With the main case that is now getting too much media coverage, there are far too many 'alleged' victims for them all to be true. Half a dozen maybe, but not over a hundred. For those that are genuine they do indeed merit peoples sympathy, but for the rest they are simply jumping on the bandwagon for a rather unorthodox claim to fame and to try and grabe a slice of the compensation pie.

Really?? That was your best remark? Simple fact is that one man could not sexually abuse well over a hundred people in public places and get away with it. If you cannot understand that then I am not the idiot here... try thinking things through before you become just another commentard, moron.
