Suffer Children, Suffer!

Rape is something Mine Host is (to put it mildly) most uncomfortable about.

The 2 children of one of the staff had been raped. This should be a momentous event.

The mother was somewhat put out about it. (As opposed to Mine Host's attitude in the same situation, which would have been downright homicidal) The rapist was her brother. The rapes were a longstanding event.

Yes, she was rather put out about it.
Heaven only knows how the 2 girls felt about it, by the time they were teenagers it was a semi-regular part of their lives.

The mother of the children was going away for a week, shopping. She delivered her children to her brother's house (the rapist) where they would be staying for the week.

As unhappy as she was about the children being raped, she was downright irate that her co-workers were uncomfortable with her choice of billet for her "own children".

Reason given (angrily) for placing her children with her brother? (who no doubt promptly reasserted his "raping rights") .........

.......... apparently is it "part of" her "culture" for uncles to care for children if the parents are otherwise occupied.

Mine Host is a firm believer that there should be a licence to breed.

Fuck. Surely rule .303 applies here?

My friend's daughter was molested from the age of about 6 for several years.

When she was 14 or 15 she really went off the rails, tried to commit suicide and in counselling the truth came out.

The uncle plead guilty only to molesting his niece, but there were other children he was charged with molesting. He was imprisoned for five years.

While he was in prison he was grooming another woman with a child. His wife stuck by him through it all, until he plead guilty. Then she realised how much he'd lied to her.

I can't begin to tell you how upsetting this is for me to hear. I know how damaging this is for a young child and the nightmare never leaves. You can survive it but the damage with its hidden pain is always part of your life. This mother deserves her space in hell, too.

Mine Host, I've spent the past three days reading through your posts and can say that I've thoroughly enjoyed your tales - everything from the amusing to the serious. You have a turn of phrase that is highly entertaining to read.

Having said that, I finally had to comment that I absolutely agree that there should be a licence to breed. The problem being that stupidity/ignorance is at least twice as likely to breed as intelligence...
