I am a fairly regular member here but I am using this ID for reasons I am sure you will all understand. The mods will know who I am I am sure, so I trust they will respect my privacy. While I am not all that intrigued by the Michael Jackson case, it is primarily because it sickens me to watch anything about it as in an effort to be fair, everybody always has a MJ defender on the show. And it irks the shit out of me. From about the time I was 8 until I was 12, I was molested by a relative. An older cousin. This was during a time when my father was ill and in the hospital off and on and my mother, when not at the hospital, was working waitressing tables to put food on the table for me and my sister. Anyway, the tactics my cousin used are exactly what MJ is accused of doing. So I am convinced that MJ is guilty. My cousin would take advantage of my youth (young boys in puberty are naturally curious about their bodies), my mother being distracted and such. At the time, I really didn't understand what it was he was doing - molesting me. I just kinda went along, thinking this was all just part of "maturing" into puberty as he would tell me. To be honest, it has fucked me up in many ways, but I never realized it until later in life and I began wondering why sex played the wrong kind of role in my life. Hard to explain, but I will leave it to you all to figure that out for itself. It didn't drive me to do anything "illegal", but those experiences early in my life have scarred me in many ways. On to why there are not accusers coming out of the woodwork... Well, even I have never told anybody else about this other than one of the many therapists I have seen over the years. My wife doesn't even know about this. Why? Shame. I will be honest, at the time, I was a "willing" participant. Now that I know better, it is just too embarrassing to face. That is why Macaley Kaucklin (sp), Feldman, etc. probably will never admit what I am sure took place with them too. See, guys like MJ target boys that are in their development years because they know that age is naturally curious about why they are waking up with hard-ons, why they get these funny feelings, etc. The molesters play on this to seduce the boys without the boys realizing what is going on. As far as I am concerned, MJ is guilty and guilty as hell. I have heard enough to believe the boy. No matter how fucked up his mother may be or anybody and everybody else in the family may be. I hope MJ is sent to prison where he is first gang raped and then beat to death. As for my cousin... the son of a bitch is dying a slow death from aids. I hope he suffers until the cows come home. That's my take.
