I don’t know if we are helping children express themselves, I hope, or if a certain amount of too much acceptance has become encouraging..(yes it hurts to think thst)..but i see story time with drag no digferent thssn bussing in the 70s n 80s..youll bevome friends with kids once youre exposed n meet some..good theory..
.regardless we are NOT the monsters the politicians say we are nor are children being surgically mutilated
that said, there was a rush of lawsuits in early 80s, mcmartin was most famous..they used anatomical dolls to help the kids testify as to the alleged abuse..what they found years after they had convicted many n ruined lives, was the kids had been interviewed so many times, with each adult prompting them fir an answer n suggesting..did daddy touch you here..on your vagina,? ..at some point the kids just learned words n their lines yes daddy touched my vagina n stuck his penis inside me..but these were words n concepts they didn’t know..n it seriously questionfd the integrity of the testimoney used to conviction
I pray we are allowing expression in safety n not steering as they did in those
sorry..but yes we should be allowed to exist n children should feel safe expressing
