SOmeone who knows I am a survivor told me about a movie with Brian Cox (a favorite actor of mine) called L.I.E. which deals with sexual abuse and pedophiles. I watched it. Mistake. BIG triggers and portrays perps in a simpathetic light.

I would NOT recommend anyone watch it.

Peace,

Scot

Scot -
Definately a trigger movie. Saw it in a little art theater without knowing what it was about. I agree that it showed perps in a forgiving light, and also implied that the main kid wanted it.

Cox did a great job in it, but definately not for survivors.

wait a minute - do we mean to say then the pity for the abuser, who was him or herself ofter the victim of abuse, is out of line?

catch-22.

I am in one of your names with what you say. Of course, I have sympathy for those, who as a result of abuse, have predelictions, desires, FANTASIES about minors, but there is a line we DO NOT CROSS because it's WRONG! No one, NO ONE I DO NOT CARE ABOUT REASONS OR RATIONALIZATIONS, has the right to abuse others. We who have had it done know better than that. Or at least we should.

You abuse ONCE, that may be a mistake. One that I hope can be corrected. You abuse again, you have crossed a line. I WILL NEVER HAVE SYMPATHY FOR THOSE WHO ABUSE!

I don't mean to be harsh, but there is right and wrong in this world. You may be entitled to one mistake, but no one has the right to cross the line again and again. This is the mistake of L.I.E. Big John didn't abuse the hero of the film, but his character abused others and would have continued to abuse other had the author not killed him off.

This is the mistake others fall into. We cannot allow sympathy to blind us to reality.

In both L.I.E. and Mystic River, the victim murders the perp.
Murder is murder under the law. So while on film we might cheer the victim avenging his perp. In real life to do so makes the perp a victim.
