I am getting the pieces rounded up on Dr. Peter Jaffe and John Liston and their participation in the overt exclusion of males/boys from sex abuse screening protocols.
Such blatant discrimination/gender bias in this day and age is unsettling at the best of times, more so when these two men were called as “expert” witnesses at the Cornwall Public Inquiry, an inquiry commissioned in response to persistent allegations of a paedophile and cover-up in which the victims were predominantly male. But, and in truth, on the other hand, also an inquiry with a mandate which deliberately omits the word “sex,” avoids specific reference to males or the circumstances demanding inquiry, and thereby deftly side-steps the very problems which gave rise to the inquiry in the first place. In the process the door was thrown open to exclude male/male sexual abuse as the focus of the inquiry – the commission was left free to further muddy the muddied Cornwall sex abuse scandal waters by fishing about inquiring into all manner of “abuse” be it mental, physical, emotional and/or sexual, of males or females! Short shrift, I believe, for grown men who, after years of silence, finally mustered the courage to come forward, those sex abuse who have been traditionally ignored and/or overlooked by “the system.” Short shrift too for ‘the boy child’!
Anyway, at this point I have added Dr. Jaffe’s bio and CV and opened a page for John Liston, who by the way, attended London’s Christ the King College when Eugene Larocque, former Bishop of Alexandria-Cornwall and accused paedophile, was Dean of the college.
I have two more articles to post. Once they are up and you can refer to them for yourself I’ll say my piece 🙂
Enough for now,
