This is the new campaign for awarness of Sexual assault on Children in my province. (Quebec, Canada). They can only play it after 8:00pm. I don't have to tell you it was a major trigger for me when i saw it. I think it's important to wake people up, but this is very overwhelming. I suppose it might make people think. Please be aware that this is VERY TRIGGERING if you watch. I Needed to share it because it plays on television here. I would like your thoughts on this. Very confused about this

Powerful and triggering. I couldn't hear what the narrator was saying (in French). Does anyone who knows French provide the tranlation? If you are triggered by graphic depiction of sexual abuse, please don't look to translate. (or do the translation without looking at the video.)

The victim appears to be male so getting the message across that it happens to boys also is important.

Anthony,

Yes, it is triggering but at least your country isn't afraid of showing it. You'd NEVER see it in America. Oh, the media likes to report on abuse but you'd never see anything so graphic in America. We don't have the guts.

I applaud your country. At least they're not afraid to hide the truth of what's taking place across this planet.

Rusty

Here is the translation from the French:

At this very moment Sexual assaults are being committed, and it's criminal. Together, victims, family, witnesses, authorities, Let's denounce sexual assaults.

Yes, it is very triggering. In reality, sexual assault / sexual abuse / sexual battery is not sexy - it is ugly and repulsive. This public service announcement definitely portrays SA for what it is - UGLY and repulsive behavior leaving the victim frantically and futily struggling to retain his / her modesty and serenity! I hope I never have to see it again. I hope it never happens to another person...
Peace,
Shadow+Walker

i think of it this way anthony, the video is no where near as overwhelming as reality was for us.

people who watch it get away.
they suffer no trauma or guilt.
they get right back to the show they were watching....and the chores they were doing...and the plans they were making.

here you go Robbie:

If you're 11 years old and you live in Paris, on Sundays you go to McDonalds.
If you're 11 years old and you live in Cuba, you give a blow job to an italian tourist.
If you're 11years old and you live in Berlin, you go see Harry Potter in the Theater.
If you're 11 years old and you live in Jakarta, you sow Nike sneakers for Americans.
If you're 11 and live in New York, you go watch the Baseball game on Sundays.
If you're 11 years old and you live in Thailand, you have to get sodomized by an australian.
If you're 11 years old and you live in Rome, you go to McDonalds on Sundays.
If you're 11 years old and you live in Dominican Republic, you act in an amateur porno movie.

Then two planes crash into two towers and people are astounded.

Thank you Anthony. That seems to be a very 'unique' way of framing things. But it is a good slap in the public's face saying "you just don't give a shit, do you people?"

Rob, we Americans are too squeamish, too outwardly-prudish and inwardly-deviant. Or maybe that's just my experience. And by the way, given your location, you're everywhere.

Peace,

John

Welcome to America! The home of the free and the brave and the deviant predators. If we lived in Canada, we'd be in the face of every citizen. But not here. We celebrate shame and blame and shuffle the phuckers around.

Oh, occasionally we catch one and put him in jail. But they're few and far between.

Campaigns like the ones we've just seen from Canada need to be forced down the throats of the Grand Ole U.S. of A.

Well, I hate to give the bad news, but even in Canada campaigns such as these are not the norm. We are as inept as other countries in dealing with CSA or any other type of abuse. It is well hidden.
We have our share of predators and many are repeat offenders.
As for the victims, they go silently without recourse or help.
I am glad that this campaign exists, but the services and the help is not available to all. I am lucky that I live in a large city, because outside of it there is hardly anything.

Yeah. You live in a wicked cool city (but there's like all those Canadians there...oh well).

As for there "being hardly anything outside the city"...well...it cuz its Canada...and there are a lot of Canadians there.

HOWever sir....The USA has never (according to my broad and superior knowledge) produced such compelling PSAs...or ANY CSA PSAs. I blame Canada for a lot of things, but I think the world of the place with the PSAs!

Hmmmm!! Robbie ,

I sense some border tension.

"I blame Canada for a lot of things".

With your broad and superior knowledge, would you care to elaborate?

Sincerely,
Your neighbour to the North

Hi, my brothers.

Pretty powerful & triggering.

There is an old saying a picture is worth a thousand words & those video clips say it all.

That boy in the chair & the boy & girl explaining what is going on.

I'll do my part next week. I'll wear my MaleSurvivor T-shirt.

Heal well, my brothers, heal well.

"I will take that lost boys hand, and I will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunshine, forever into eternity." As he is me..

Pete..Irishmoose.
