There’s a Reliable Therapy for Sex Offenders — But Nobody Wants Them to Get It

In June of 1994, a convicted child molester named Charlie Taylor moved into a small apartment in downtown Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, across the street from a community center. He had no family. He had no parole officer.

    Having the influence of supportive people around helps one to see one’s choices through their (hopefully) less-distorted eyes. Being isolated encourages one to “act out” driven by the subconscious. This guy was punished once as a victim; then again as a perpetrator. Why do people reenact traumas? Is it to find the meaning of the abuse?
    I was totally bonded to my abuser-cousin whom I only saw at Grandma’s house on Thanksgiving. According to my distorted thinking, it meant wonderful things about me that this college boy was giving me so much attention at age 9,10,11. I felt he must really be fond of me, but I also found I was frozen in inability to speak to boys that looked like his “type”.

    As a grown married woman, I recalled a completely buried trauma on a Disneyland ride at 13 with a different boy age 16 (a friend of my older sister’s friend). This memory came to me just shortly before I started my own subconsciously-driven grooming efforts with a teen boy who actually looked very much like my abuser-cousin.
    My Therapist said that I was reenacting my traumas, but slowing them way down so that I could control every aspect.
