With your head up your nether region again. Let's do the math first of all: You say you were in the family from 1975 to 1987. That is twelve years. Then you say you never heard of abuse as Eva mentioned in your "30 years in the family on several continents." Which is it? 12 yrs in or 30 yrs in and/ or still in?
You have specifically mentioned age 12 in saying children younger weren't abused to your knowledge. You also repeatedly indicate that this was probably secretly practiced by parents or those closest to the child. All that goes with the family party line that certain individuals abused children, some of those darn hippies from the First Generation.
Well I happen to know that if you didn't see it (believable) you certainly would have heard about it. Especially as you say you were in major cities. By the years you were in you had access to the literature. You would also be aware that it was practiced and advocated from the top in the name of God and as part of TF doctrine.
You were in during the period when "uncle" and "aunty" started and would have seen far more graphic literature than I did by the point in time that I left. Even if I were to believe your contradictory first statement that you were in until 87, that was time to see and hear about plenty.
Now can you explain your contradictions?
