Hi emmalu9, Thankyou for clarifying your approach and I appreciate the suggestion. I have no doubt you are right when you talk about the mechanism of repressed memories, but for me there seems no indications. I would imagine that the first requirement to dig deeper is either an intention or at least...

lowpass, And your outlook now according to your own words is that these children were not "overly" traumatised by the sexual abuse they endured? You use the verb "overly". What degree of trauma caused by the abuse was visible to you? Please be specific.Do you believe children are damaged and traumat...

Witness, Dear all, Has anyone noticed how beneficial it is to have TB regularly posting like this? His messages have contributed immensely to an intelligent critique of the SES and St James. His posts remind us all of the tone and attitudes that we have experienced in St James and SES. His behaviour...

emmalu9, TB, what is your actual SES experience? Why don?t you tell us? You were lucky enough to have the choice of whether to join and when to leave the SES. You will never understand the loss of a childhood to its poisonous rubbish. I have posted details of this a few times, shall I repeat them in...

ADG, don't know any "brie" from "cheesy soap opera" but if you anything about "bree" from the darkly funny Desperate Housewives you would be afraid, very very afraid. I don't know 'Brie' either, probably because I her and the show up. I think you misjudge women in general. The shows producers are ma...

Hi NYC, Gender equality does not imply gender sameness. I think you are aware of that, TB, but you seem to want someone to assert that gender equality is based on sameness so you can refute them, and argue that the sexes are different, therefore men and women should be treated differently. Yes, the ...

ADG,

Or even Brie in "Cheesey Soap Opera".

I must say ADG, your style of snappy one-liners is very fulfilling not at all taxing on the mind. Bring it on.

Can I call you a junior VP or somethi...

NYC, I agree with the other posters, an excellent post, long but certainly worth the read. How can I respond without seeming patronising given my past comments? I genuinely enjoyed reading an expose of my thinking and opinions. You have not correctly picked all my views (or I have not expressed them...

Hi ADG, http://www.abanet.org/crimjust/juvjus/Adolescence.pdf Here is a reference as promised discussing the development of the human brain where is discusses some functions maturing only in the early 20's. There are others I have seen and I am sure you are familiar enough with the internet to judge...

Hi FT, Inherant worth is quite simple. It means that we are all worth the same in the world, either through God's eyes if you're religious, or through our own if you're not I have been told my posts are difficult to understand. What do you expect me to understand by saying 'we are all worth the same...

ADG, As for separate toilets - how on EARTH is that gender discrimination. I am a girl and looky here - a female toilet. You are a boy and looky here - a male toilet. See? We BOTH have toilets. No discrimination there. Lets substitute race and color instead of gender. Toilets for white people and di...

lowpass, thanks for a detailed response. Your statement the "kids made an industry out of it" and were therefore somehow complicit is for me an outrageous statement, as is your observation that children are not "overly" traumatised by sexual abuse. I note your precise term 'overly'. So they were a l...

Grimep You say As someone until recently involved very closely with the school you must be very well aware that as a member your critical faculties are modified by SES-think. It manifests (yikes, I'm using 'SES' words meself now!) itself in modes of speech, thought processes and the actual choice wo...
