If you were doing the same thing in defending what happened to you, you would be seen as some sort of cry baby. But since you are defending perverts you are a hero...
This is how they trapped you
I guess the way I got trapped was actually believing my own Christian parents when they raised me to see other people as worthwhile and basically good. And knowing that everyone has good intentions at bottom--it's just a matter of expressing those underlying feelings and emotions in such a way that does not do damage to their own or other's divine human worth.
I also got bamboozled by not getting lectures, sermons or pronouncements from my parents, but by being taught awareness and how to recognize and pay attention to virtues such as love and respect. In that way, all of us learned that it is actions, not words, that matter. My mother and dad showed us how to act without telling us how
I guess that is the main differnce we got trapped into learning how to stand up and defend others who are marginalized and misunderstood.
And how did YOUR parents trap YOU?
