First, they’ll will touch you, feel you all over, violate you in all possible manner.

Then, when they’re dead sure you’re dead or as good as dead, that you have zero feelings, they’ll hack you, cut you to pieces and do that over and over again until you’re reduced to a sorry spectacle, until you’re shorn of all ripeness and fruit and joy and all that had earlier made you human.

By then they would move, gleefully, onto their next target, for haven’t you heard the world and its backyard is a happy playground for all such sexual predators.

    Yes that is an utilitarian attitude. Value everything as long it can of some use. Then discard.

  13. There is some comfort in knowing that at least some predators are caught, proven guilty, sent to jail–a most uncomfortable place for a pedophile, especially.
