The powerful speech @AsiaArgento during the closing ceremony of Cannes. “I was raped here in 1997 by Harvey Weinstein.” Going on to describe Cannes as HW’s hunting ground; many BBC past Students & their Families will remember how BBC was remembered as a ‘hunting ground’. Even the term “hunting ground” can be remembered in some of BBC’s (un-admitted) Offenders of the 1990’s. Perhaps this why any public announcements correlate with a psychological effect, that’s been hidden to some level. Even decades and decades after the events happened, any reminders of them may trigger some reaction(s).
This is where LivingWell have provided their resources, suitable to these male Survivours and their Families. “We all benefit from maps of life’s territories. We do not live our lives in straight lines” is from the Indigenous themed clip ‘No Straight Lines’.

In the awaited days before the final report from #caRoyalComm, some of the deepest volleys have been made. Amongst the tidal wave of sexual immorality of the Entertainment Industry, no punches are being pulled with Cardinal Pell (Catholic) & Graeme Russell Lawrence (Anglican) leaders being brought before Australian Courts.

For all of those Survivors, Family-Friends & Caregivers of ChildSexualAbuse at BBC – it pleases me to note that I’ve recently been in contact with a Journalist, previous Old Boys’ (OCA) Staff & another Survivor. Although nothing happens ‘instantly’, particularly re: damages from CSA Perpetrators – it’s releaving to have spoken with some of those effected. It’s possibly more rewarding to help the wider-public realise some truths, which would otherwise have been hidden.
Having personally been alerted by some specific articles of women’s ‘targetting, denials, manipulation & abuses’, I had become involved with the #HarveyWeinstein drama via #MeToo. Reflecting on this from a wider perspective, some have realised the overlapping (no pun intended)) similarities with #ChildSexualAbuse. Even though my personal legal-claims are currently removed, I’m passionate for other Surviving Adults & Families. I hope to have more discussions RE: SH-CSA matters, online or privately.
