A Casualty Of The Sexual Revolution

Hello Deirdre.

It is a lot worse than that.

The first time she molested me, I was three. The last time, I was twelve, and able to walk away.

I put Walter in jail for molesting one boy. I had tried to intervene when I was 13 by telling Mother and Lisa, and they just moved him into his own apartment.

I had been living partially on couches since I was ten years old because of the out of control drugs, orgies, and constant flow of people in and out of our family “home.”

None of this should be news. Walter was a serial rapist with many, many, many victims (I named 22 to the cops) but Marion was far, far worse. She was cruel and violent, as well as completely out of her mind sexually. I am not her only victim, nor were her only victims girls.

I wish I had better news.

  1. I work in corrections and the number of men (I work in male-only facilities) that have been sexually violated by parents/family is breathtaking. When I began working in the prison system, I was constantly surprised by the number of inmates who had been abused sexually. Now, ten years later, I find I am surprised when I discover an inmate who wasn’t.

  2. Marion Zimmer Bradley was a very famous fantasy writer of perhaps a generation ago. I haven’t read any of her work, but knew a number of people who had a number of her books on their shelves.
