Dump a Dishonorable Dad – 24/52 Ways to Stop Pedophiles

June 10, 2013

The big day for Dads is on the calendar this Sunday. Many of us don’t celebrate a day that is a painful reminder of a man who sexually abused us.

Our memories of betrayal begin to creep in about the same time as the colorful ads for Father’s Day gifts start their annual sales pitch. It’s depressing.

For those who are still keeping family secrets, you are paying a far greater price than the cost of a new necktie or baseball tickets to a double-header. Pedophiles usually have more than one victim. Other kids may be suffering because of your silence.

Just because your dad stopped diddling you years ago, doesn’t mean that we’ve solved the problem of CSA. Secrets still seal the lips of most violated kids. This week the sexual use of several children, by their fathers, broke the surface and became news stories.

A 27 year old dad, sexually assaulted his 13 month old son while making kiddie porn. The dad was caught trading the images online. His excuse was that he felt pressured by other pedophiles.

Jose Perez Jr., 41, impregnated his 12 year old stepdaughter. Keeping it in the family, he was also found guilty of sexually abusing his 11 year old stepdaughter.

The messy case of Stephen Conrad Jr., continued this week with clarifying charges that accuse him of sexually abusing eight kids, all under 12, including four of his own children. Vagilantes reported on this shocking case of compliance and coverup by his family and friends.

These cases involved blood relatives, but there are also father-figures who deserve to be dishonored. Expose the men who were expected to teach us about responsibility and love: church leaders, scoutmasters, coaches, babysitters and mom’s boyfriend. This is a great time of the year to speak up. On Father’s Day, you might stop a pedophile from stealing the innocence of another child. Do you need help to raise your voice?

For those who didn’t have a good example of a father, here’s a brief look at what a real dad does to protect his child, and other kids: parents-tackle-pedophile-taking-pictures-of-little-kids-in-dressing-rooms.

Our message to this man on Father’s Day: Thanks Dad!

    I finally dumped my step-father and my mother for this reason. It’s 20 years too late but I have my own kids to protect. Thanks for this blog, love it!

      Thanks Mrs.M, for your comment. It warmed my heart.
      It’s never too late to separate from toxic relationships. It’s a process that takes great fortitude and reinforcement of your decision when you are challenged. More power to you and others on this journey.
      I read some of your blog, and see that you are taking giant strides of love for yourself and protecting your children. You are so brave.
      You may never know how much your words are helping other people who have CSA pain.
      I also cut contact with my parents when I was about 38. It was a smart move that I was not emotionally healthy enough to make any sooner in my life. No regrets.
      Part of my support came from Laura Davis, coauthor of The Courage to Heal. In a public meeting I stood in line to say, “I want to separate from my abusive parents, but it seems like the easy way out.” (I guess I wanted her permission.)
      Laura said, “No, it’s the hard way out. You can do it.” She continued to talk about such a decision, but these few words somehow are all I remember, and all I needed to move ahead.
      Mrs.M, you have a great outlet with your blog. Your can also spread your message by submitting a piece for free publication on the Vagilantes Press link. Use the contact form on this site.

        Ms. Davis is absolutely right. This is the hard way out but it’s the best way out. Pretending is the easy way. It makes everyone else happy except the victim.
        Thank you for your kind words and the offer. I would love to submit a piece for publication!
