At 8 years old, you COULDN'T give him the "greenlight". This man was a predator, a pedophile. None of what happened was your fault. Always remember that. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

No child is ever to blame: It is never their Fault
by: maurice

Sam M you are one very special human being of the male species: nothing more nothing less from what that predator counsellor did to you when you were 8 years old: You certainly did not know evn the word you used to discribe the way your eyes met: You were innocent: You were vunerable: you wer that bit slower undressing than the other boys: Beng black or white had nothing to do with it: you were in the wrong place on your own with this child molester//pedophile: You did nothing wrong; nothing was you fault: Say, I was not to blame: that man used me for his own gratification: Boys at school can be very, very cruel, so what that boy did was wrong too: turning the other boys against you by making a silly throw away remark: I am sure you have or will in time make sense of your sexuality: Being Gay is very normal too for those who have conciously chosen to accept that they are Gay: You are Special: you are YOU: Don't upset yourself by blaming yourself what happened when you were 8 years of age: That Pedphille certainly needs to be taken away from where children are: If you are in position to have him removed then please tell the authorities in the swimming club or the Aithorities: Get on with living your life to the full: Get out there with your own age group taking part in sporting and cultural activities: Think positive: Be positive: and act positive: Get on with living your life to the full: I can: I will: I must because I am WORTH it: Speak with a counsellor I am certain all you have shared with Darlene will be put in perspective for you: Don't put what you know now on what happened you when you were 8 years of age: I was a child of 8 years of age: I was not to blame for what he did to me:

It's Not Your Fault
by: John

Sam, remember this if nothing else. It is not your fault. You were a child and could not give any real consent. This man was a perverted predator who preyed on innocent children and because of that, he has left scars. You will be all right. I'm so sorry you had to go through this.

i understand completely
by: molly

i have known since about 5 that i like both women and men, and i didnt understand what was so wrong its not like i could help it. it really upset me when ppl acted so disgusted. i began a sexual relationship with a girl 14 years old when i was 8 for 3 years. i have only recently questioned the morality of her actions, because she denied it when i asked her. just remember always that you can love whoever you want and i will always respect and accept anyone who is brave enough to just be who they are.

From Darlene: Molly, you can't "begin a sexual relationship" when you are 8 years old. Consent doesn't exists when you're 8 years old. You were most definitely sexually assaulted by that 14-year-old, whether or not she admits to it.
