Denial is unconscious blindness
Denial is a coping mechanism
It refuses to see and listen to what it knows
Denial is unconscious blindness.
Discomfort makes you leave the room
You don’t want to know
but closing your eyes won’t make it go away.
Survivor’s need to be believed
now not decades later.
When we deny their truth
We’re guilty as complacent accomplices.
I know it’s horrifying to believe
that some seemingly normal people are monsters
capable of unspeakable horrors.
Look at Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy
they could be anyone’s neighbor rich or poor
camouflage is their weapon.
Fairytales used metaphors to teach us
those stories weren’t meant to entertain us
they were there to warn us
when we were too young to understand
dark creatures in gingerbread houses were pedophiles
eerie forests and spiraled towers
were their hunting grounds and dungeons
underground trolls like
Rumplestilskin the baby thief
big bad wolves are the rapists and cannibals that still exist
as they always have in the frame of decency
as camp counselors, preachers, parents and grandparents.
Victims are usually abused by trusted people they know.
Believe your child and protect them.
Teach them about predators
don’t teach them to be polite and nice.
Predators are cowards they want easy targets
they don’t want children who will fight.
Teach them to defend themselves
How to be aware of grooming
How fight for their lives with everything:
use house keys, pencils, scissors, fingers
poke their eyes out groin kick them and shout Rapist
Never let them take you as a prisoner
Die then where you are, not decades later imprisoned as a slave
Sudden death is much better than torture.
Self-defense should be taught in elementary schools
that’s how bad it’s gotten in our world.
There’s nothing greater that you can do
than rescuing a child from abuse.
“They didn’t believe the girl, because she wasn’t crying enough…1 of 6 people were sexually abused in the UK… 1 of 3 people will report the abuse…Let’s stop protecting our cars and start protecting our children.” Sue Black.(exerpt from the 16:59 minute video clip), a jury ignored scientific evidence that a father was abusing his daughter and I think it’s because they were in denial. Denial isn’t harmless, it’s very dangerous. Standing up for truth is an act of bravery.
