    There is no "a pervert". There are 38 million who have been abused as children. There is p o r n and s e x and p e r version everywhere you turn in this country. Yes it is society. These people are responsible for what they do but society fuels the disease.

    In 1948 my parents sent me to daycare at St. Gregory's R.C. Church in Garfield, N.J.(I was 3 yrs old). The priest was gardening in the church yard..I asked what he was doing with the flowers. He took me into the potting shed, and exposed himself to me. then he told me to kiss it it will stand up tall. he then asked to touch me.etc.... When I went home i told my parents and i was taken out of the facelitie the next day. I had no siblings and never saw a man or child naked before. i have told only a few people over the years. you are #5. This was not society it was A PERVERT.
