Until recently I was on the board of a junior sports team. The way this stuff keeps cropping up it's hard not to be absolutely paranoid about preventing & guarding against pedos around the kids. We all do mandated SafeSport training and have rules & guidance around it. Parents & coaches are never 1:1 with the kids, etc. The board had a private chat where we could note things just to keep our eyes open. It sucks just to have to watch for it, but anymore you can't have such a team without doing so.

Flushing It All Away: It's gotten to the point where if you're an adult male, and even have a passing interest in working with, helping, aiding, coaching, or otherwise being around children, the base assumption is that you're probably a pedo.


I wonder if it has something to do with years and years and years and years and years and years and farking years of conservative "OMG THE PEDOS THEY'RE ALL PEDOS THEY'RE COMIN' FOR YER KIDS!" push?

"Gotten to"? Shiat, when I was a kid back in the '70s, and someone asked if I wanted to join the Scouts, despite having no idea what molestation was, I innately knew that any adult male who wanted to voluntarily spend time dragging a bunch of little boys into the woods did not have wholesome intentions.

It's never been safer to be a kid. The idea is that there is a pedo and kidnapper behind every bush just waiting to attack kids is manufactured BS

And your statement has a lot to do with why guys don't want to coach or referee sports.

Karens pick up most of their shiat from "Won't someone think of the children?!" type campaigns.  Formal and otherwise - facebook omg posts that fly around often have suspiciously similar origins when people bother to track them.   Those tend to be run by one particular side of the fence, because making people afraid makes for malleable voters.  Sound like stupid conspiracy bullshiat?  Check your favorite source on the connection between creating an environment of fear and mistrust and the election of strongmen and facists.  It's right out the playbook.  Just like everything else we've been dismissing for how many years now.  We are the recipients of a concerted effort to destabilize and destroy what used to be called "the free world." and we have been for a long damn time now.

So you're saying that staying away from republicans means you only have a 1 in 20 chance of being molested, as if that's a good thing? You need refresher math and stats courses.

Kroll is a senior business banker is also the vice president of KidsMatter - though authorities emphasized that these charges are not related to his work with he nonprofit.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that him heading a kids nonprofit and the fact that he likes kiddie porn are probably directly related.  Hopefully he never had the opportunity to be alone with kids through the nonprofit.

//yeah I know, they're emphasizing that he's not being charged for anything he's done through the nonprofit, at least not yet.

I'm a mandated reporter so I have to take a training course every year in spotting abuse. If I ignore a warning sign, I'm liable. It's part of why I prefer to work with older kids, fewer playground bruises to wonder about.

I coached youth sports for many years while my son was playing and a few years after because of a shortage of coaches. Afterwards I umpired for county leagues and state high school ball. I left because I changed jobs and the extra time wasn't there anymore. My son played in a youth football league and though I didn't coach, I volunteered and worked in the equipment trailer (an old semi trailer where the league stored and repaired equipment). I would usually be working it by myself and many times kids would come into the trailer with a broken equipment or torn uniform. I thought nothing of issuing them new pants and them changing in the trailer while I was doing other things. Or fitting their shoulder pads properly , or any number of fitting issues with other pieces of football equipment. My wife worked for an attorney at the time and we were discussing this and he mentioned that I was taking quite a chance being in the trailer alone with a kid. The thought had never entered my mind and after that the trailer was closed to kids unless they brought an adult along with them for equipment. I did not want the appearance of impropriety to be there. I guess it was simpler times and some of us that actually enjoyed working with kids never dreamed others were predators

Exactly.

When I was 8-10 (mid 60's), I had figure skating lessons. 2-3 times a week.
That soon lost out to skiing.

40 years later, my mom asked me. "Did Coach <Whatever> ever try anything with you?
'Huh?'
"Did he do any weird stuff?"

Then she showed me the newspaper article, where he was busted/convicted for child molestation.

When I was little I needed to have a bunch of teeth pulled and someone referred me to a dentist who focused on children's dentistry. At the consultation the dentist told my mother that she couldn't be in the room during the procedure. He insisted on it. Thankfully my mom saw the red flags and took me somewhere else. A few years later that dentist was up on tons of charges. Seems he would gas kids then have his way with them, and his staff knew about it and enabled his behaviour. Don't remember the guy's name which has made it difficult to look it up and see what happened to him.

In fact, one of my coworkers did get fired after he got put away for "fiddling about". My boss sure knew how to pick 'em. There was the guy who did drugs in the bathroom, several thieves, and the guy who stored his boogers on the underside of his desk. I felt out of place until my hair started falling out in clumps due to stress. Then I looked like I fit in!

I miss the money. I don't miss the job, the coworkers, or the boss. I'd left the company before the boss died of a heart attack at his desk... must've been an exciting day for everybody.
