My name is Deeny. I am 56 years old and the grandmother of three boys - ages 5 -10. I have two adult children, my son is parent of two of the boys and my daughter the parent of the little one.

I made my first post earlier today on the "Off Topic" thread, regarding the establishment of a "Collaboration" effort for survivors, for the creation of an online database listing abusers. I gave a suggestion as to how this could be accomplished. I think the creation of an online database describing perpetrators and listing the area where they prey on childen is a fine idea, whose time has come. What else is the internet for if not this?

The Sandusky case is what brought me to seek out a site about male survivors. I've read extensively at this site for several weeks now prior to registering.

No, I am not a childhood sexual abuse survivor. Nor, do I think are either of my children or my grandchildren. (But I will directly ASK both of my children in the coming days.)

But not being a victim myself does not mean that I don't care about all of you who are victims.

It is time to stop this! The time is here, now..... My advice: Speak up and speak out! Create data bases. Hound these despicable perpetrators out into the open! Outing them is what will stop this!

Thank you,
Deeny

My state has a registry (many do) and it includes everything you describe, including pictures that must be updated yearly. It's an awesome tool for known offenders. I want to go crazy public letting people know that they should pay closer attention to the friends and family in their immediate circle. Most of the people I have talked to were molested by grandfathers, fathers, stepbrothers and teen neighbors. These types of people are very unlikely to appear on any database.
