    I don't live in fear.  I didn't as a kid, when I had free run of the bases (and towns when we didn't live on bases - even in other countries) and faced molesters in uniforms and one of my own uncles - and I don't now.  My first run in was at 6 on a post playground - and this was well before the "stranger danger" days.  most molesters are people you know, not some random creeper snatching kids off the street.  And I'm autistic for the record myself.

    And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

      murdered my colleague in 1967?

      how many have to be harmed before you take notice?  caring isn't a crime - and it damned well may help one child.

      we live in different times - when i was small, when you were small, things were very different than now.

      how?

      widespread access to child pornography online (internet, duh)
      nearly everyone has easy access to cars  (not so when i was growing up - usually only one per entire family) and much more.

      the prevalence of child predators may not have "grown" but they sure have easier access now - so, on the off chance that this child is in harm's way, you don't see the necessity to try to minimize the risk to the child?

      a nude kid running around inside his/her home is one thing - running around outside is putting that child at risk, imho.  i care about the child.  nothing else matters, imho.

        had bad experiences - still, the problems now are wider - the stranger abductions are more publicized, if not more common.  we had an incident in the bay area where a man grabbed a small child and was only stopped by the mother's screaming - the kid was 5 yrs old.  

        if you google 'attempted abduction of child" - there are over 5 million hits in 29 seconds.  

        that's why i worry and i'm guessing that's part of tharu's concern, too.

      my father is a sexual abuser, has a permanent site at a campground, and apparently the owner knows and is fine with it.

      How are the other guests to find out? It really, really bothers me.
