Child abuse - Shame on the UK

by Sharon
(Swansea, UK)

China have the right idea and have stopped all adult sites to protect their children. I am ashamed to be British. Our culture shows no respect for mothers, women or children. The clothing for children in some shops is a total disgrace. The way our society makes our children grow up and act like little adults is a huge worry. Adult education for a 10 year old? I find this personally sick!

When workmen can come into a school canteen with a Sun Paper and have it open on page 3 that shows the amount of disrespect for women, but more importantly, how dare they bring this muck into a children's school.

When you have a child it sadly opens up your eyes to the awful world around you. And you wonder how are you going to protect them. Especially when the law is not doing it's job!

Google thankfully stopped bullies using my Trademark name for adult site images and videos, which came up right next to all my work that is child related. They used Swing Out Sisters song which came out a year after mine. Amazing how the rich get away with anything! You can imagine how this stopped me trading. My work was blocked thanks to them. And now my little girl lives in a horrible damp house and I want justice.

Now these bullies are using my name and placing my child related videos next to adult advertising for things that should be nowhere near child related images or videos.

I am not surprised at all because when you are the sort of person that speaks out and fights for justice you will get attacked!

Until Mothers and Fathers start acting like real parents and force the Internet, TV and film industry to tone things down, we will never protect our children.

For someone to steal a child's childhood is a crime against humanity. They not only destroy that child's childhood memories but they never forget and that nightmare follows them through their whole adulthood. I wonder how many people suffer from mental illness because of this awful ordeal? And how many do not get the proper support because doctors refuse to accept that child abuse can cause mental illness. Well I am here to tell you it destroys people and I will fight tooth and nail to get justice for the people I have seen destroyed and we will get justice for all our children.

I will not put my full name as the adult sites, or bullies will read this post and get away with using my name for more disgusting advertising because we as a nation have no morals!
