"Do you want to buy a candy bar"?
The young african american boy inquisitively asked me back in 2006, as he held out a box of candy. And this was how a friendship began. For, we shall call him Ron, was a prodigy. He could sit and talk for 30 minutes, and we discussed all kinds of things. We talked about his school, we talked about his family. We talked about his brothers, we talked about his mother and father. We talked about why he was out walking alone at age 7 selling candy, without being supervised.
Yet, he came by often, and was doing well in school. But there was a dark side that I didn't know at that time. You see, Ron was abused by his father, and by his mother. He had been sexually molested at the age of four, and as usually happens, this causes people to develop homosexual attractions. As the years passed, he came by, and his visits stopped in 2009, when the location of the office changed. Three years later, I had my own company. I stood watching a tattooed, lanky young man with dyed hair looking at my office. "Are you Ryan"? "Yes, I am" I said uncertainly. Not having had many good experiences with tattooed young men with dyed hair, I was not having great expectations.
"It's me, Ron". "Wow"!!, said I, "You look so different." Indeed, he did!! And it wasn't for the better. I tried to shield my disappointment in my face as I looked at the boy who was so intelligent, and had such a great future in store seemingly, who looked like this. He was listening to an iphone. So, I told him to come inside, and we talked for a bit. He was not doing well in school or at home. He said people were picking on him constantly, and his mom was beating him. I tried to help him out with some tips on how to deal with difficult situations. I bought him some cloths and some books, and told him to drop in whenever he needed to. And, it progressed. But, he was picked on at school. He had effeminate mannerisms, and was openly homosexual due to his childhood molestation. At 15 he was pimped out by a friend of his who was 16. He was beaten. This "Pimp" became his "boyfriend". He fell "in love" with another young man who died of an illness. He wanted to make his last name the same as the deceased "boyfriend", and he wanted to get a tattoo of his deceased, which he did.
I had some serious talks with him. Let him know where his attraction came from, and told him he didn't have to stay like this. Time passed. He now has one child in the system, at age 17, and another on the way. He just went on the homosexual prostitution site "GRINDR", to try and make some money, and was raped so badly two weeks ago that he required 18 stitches to his excretory system. Blood was all over the place, and the hospital where he was treated didn't even think to report the rap to the police. They simply treated him and released him. So little kids get raped in our society, and medical professionals have been intimidated into being quiet about it. He can barely walk or sit, and his excretory system may be permanently affected.
The system here in California is badly broken. When he is put in group homes he is abused, or they try to drug him. He is not emancipated and will not turn 18 until May, so he is in limbo. Homeless shelters and others cannot legally help him by law until he's 18.
I tried to guide him away from the pop culture that lies to him so much, and to get him into books. He has started reading. The painful part is he has to cut off connections to so many bad influences. I also told him he needs to give up his phone, as a child should not have a cell phone when getting into vile filth is an option. That was rough, but he is supposed to turn it over to me today. Also, am considering who the best lawyer will be to file a $5 million lawsuit against GRINDR for their negligence in allowing children to advertise and incur horrific damages that may last a lifetime.
And he is the latest of the children who our society targets. We either use contraception to avoid having children, or abortion to get rid of the ones we don't want, or, when a child comes into the world, many are abused and sexually molested. What a sick society and world we live in.
It's not going away until we reverse the damage of Kinsey's Sexual Sabotage. Until porn, contraception, homosexuality, and abortion are all criminalized again, and we are able to powerfully override the chirps and squawks of the mentally deranged left, many of whom are too hurt to be able to comprehend truth, this problem will persist.
Ron did not deserve to be born into a world much worse than the one most of us were born into. What is your excuse for allowing this to happen? Like it or not, when harm happens to any, we are all to blame, in our communities. But most of us are loath to admit our selfish habits are harmful at all to others. We like to believe the fairytale that our choices only affect us, no one else.
It's not true. Ron deserves better, and so do the millions of children who have not yet been born. Our choices today affect the lives of unborn billions. We choose life or death with every choice. Choose wisely.
