Yesterday's Melbourne Age newspaper (the quality broadsheet I might add ) carried an article entitled "Pedophiles among female carers"
The first few lines ,quote " Sexual abuse by women is a bigger problem than previously thought, and nuns and nannies are among the female pedophiles who have preyed on the children in their care."
"Women are responsible for 6 percent of all reported cases of sexual abuse, a study by Child Wise, the nation's peak child protection group, has shown"
"And much of the abuse occurs while the women are acting in positions of authority" .........
(I'll see if I can chase up a web address -- I would think using a few key words and www.theage
. etc would get the story )
I would expect the vast majority of sexual misconduct in the SES to be taking place between "consenting" adults though -- the example I gave ages ago of the (female) totur telling a young woman who revealed she had had a miscarriage that it was due to her wickedness in a former life and all such "Karma" is in fact deserved -- not the usual careing attitude one comes to expect between women.
From a long talk to an ex member (1970's to 80's ) I gathered that "good Karma" could be gotten by females if they 'pleased' men in the movement and the giving of sex for Karma was understood if not quite explicitly taught.
From personal experience I can vouch for the desensitizing effect of authority on women -- I was arrested on a Friday night preceding a long weekend (in 1983) when two police officers (one female) turned up with a "warrant of committment" to serve 25 days imprisonment over a matter that involved my having reported a 'low flying' incident that involved only myself, caused no damage,loss of use,no complaint, no injury etc etc -- in fact it was because I realized during a specified 'precautionary landing' exercise that I was being directed to fly through about 250 ft of solid rock if I followed the exact procedure and I submitted a form 225 "air safety incident report" to bring this fact to the attention of the Civil Aviation Authority .
For almost exactly a year I heard nothing from my report or the authorities but I had established and aircraft maintenance and repair business on a government aerodrome (also controlled by the civil aviation authority) in the meantime, finished and obtained my private pilots licence (I had been flying gliders for many years prior and had -too much!- actual experience of landing in paddocks which the training exercise 'simulated')
I had also become aware of the same authority giving out permits to fly for an incredibly unairworthy and illegal "ultralight" aircraft -- a number of fatal accidents occurred after I had issued a defect notice that should have grounded the aircraft type and caused inspections to take place -- no such thing happenned and I ended up trying to help three widows get documents released and giving expert evidence against the authority.
At this point I became aware that I was a marked man -- world renowned aviator and millionaire Dick Smith wrote a damning book exposing the incompetence and criminalcover ups within the aviation authority "Two Years in the Aviation Hall of Doom" (the 'secret cult' of aviation) and gave numerous case histories of people targetted.
To sum up I had gone to court to defend the charges -- told they woulkd be withdrawn, had to defend myself on the spot, the magistrate knew nothing of flight training , fined me on one charge and I appealled - I got anonymous death threats , all sorts of 'impediments' in dealing with the authority, had my rent quadrupled without reason etc ,etc- I subpeoned 22 officers of the Authority (including four department heads) and invited all the media and papers along -- the judge found that the case should never have been brought before his court or indeed anyone else's and tore strips off the people from the authority and the police officer that I had also subpeoned BUT,,, I had turned up proof that the 'declared' low flying area approved for the flying school had never in fact been 'gazetted' or published via Hansard or given approval by the ,usually , 'figurehead' Minister for Aviation -- the secretary had given approval without having power to so nonetheless I WAS 'guilty' of flying below 500 ft over an area not being a designated low flying area .
The case was written up in the aviation press and covered by electronic media as a 'moral win' and exposure of malicious abuse of power etc -- the fine imposed was $1 but I had to pay the first court costs of $250.
I sent in a cheque for that on a copy of the scathing editorial by the editor of "Aircraft" magazine and forgot about it for about six years until one Friday evening......
Turns out they never cashed my cheque and in the meantime the 'freedom of information' act came in and I made application to get the full authority and police files to get the case quashed.
