Stop Saying “It’s Not About Sex”

I heard one of the so-called “experts” talking about the Sandusky case on television yesterday. He said, “it’s not about sex, it’s about power.”

I have heard this before from people who have a psychological degree. Isn’t it a requirement to have some level of common sense before a person can graduate from a university?

I’d like to see that expert stand before the 60 million survivors of child sexual abuse, and the unknown number of children being sexually violated right now, and tell them, “Oh, don’t worry, it’s not about sex.”

Try to tell the little girls being vaginally stimulated by their step-father that it’s not about sex. Try to tell little boys, being forced to give oral sex to their coach, that it has nothing to do with sex.

If it wasn’t about sex, then Sandusky’s accusers would be saying he beat them, or he imprisoned them without food or water.

How many times have child sexual abusers been caught with child pornography? The person viewing the child pornography doesn’t have power over those children. They are sexually stimulated by the images of the children. When abusers are sexually penetrating, stimulating, kissing and fondling children, IT HAS TO DO WITH SEX!

Child sexual abusers have a degenerate sexual drive and they use their power over the child to satisfy that sexual drive, and because that drive doesn’t go away, they sexually abuse again and again.

    Well done, Alethea!

    Sandusky is attracted to male children between the ages of 10 and 13. He picks his victims carefully from the most vulnerable group of children, those without a father living in the home, just like any other child seducer does.

    This man is “textbook” in his behavior. This is about sex and seduction of little boys. The titillation that Sandusky gets from showering with little boys is obvious to many people, so the outrage is just.

    I like how you defined that, Alethea – that it does indeed have to do with sex. It makes perfect sense.

    The degree is not a psychological degree. It’s a Master degree in psychology. You see, it takes much more than a 4 year university stint to become a certified, licensed psychologist. And true, sexual abuse is about the sex of a depraved and sometimes demented, torture or previous abused child, but don’t think it’s not about the ultimate power, too.

      Whatever kind of degree. My point is this guy calling himself an expert, and being paid as one, telling millions of viewers that it’s not about sex.

    Our society is going to the dogs! When common sense and basic morals are thrown out, this is the kind of utter trash that gets presented for general consumption. People like Sandusky do what they do because not enough people stand up to call a pedophile a pedophile!!
    He is in for some real ‘hard time’ in prison and he knows it. Pedophiles don’t do well in general population in prison because most men there find them disgusting!
    Let’s hope Sandusky finds out how it feels to not be able to sit down very well someday!
