he's told it quite a few times on here .. he doesn't seem to want us to forget .. It's the first time I've heard it, so there's that.
if he didn't want to call attention to himself and the situation, first and foremost, why choose your actual name as your screen name ?
quote:Yes, I like him better.
you see coco's point, but not the same exact point that is being made and/or reiterated by others ? interesting ..
We enjoy the fact that nobody knows us. He seems to want people to know. And that's his personal choice I guess.
just that he has kind of gone about this on here in an interesting manner ..
quote:A lot of people have signed up with part of their name in their screen names.....
virtually no one uses their actual IRL first and last name as their screen names
WTF? Exploiting? Profit?
You guys that are questioning his motives are some ignorant jackasses.
It seems to me that this singular and notorious event clearly changed his life forever in multiple ways. He's the one living it.
It's a great and brave thing that he he is sharing his story to better educate people about child sexual abuse, and how to deal with it. I have to deal with sex offenders all the time in my work, and I can tell you with total honesty that Jody's perspective was very enlightening to me. What now seems obvious is actually counterintuitive - that to over dramatize and catastrophize sexual abuse in talking to your kids can actually do them more harm than good.
Thanks, Jody! Don't stop sharing your story. You're doing great work.
And I'm with the majority that is prepared to give the guy a pass for some awkward posts about a topic that hits way too close to home for him.
Some of you guys are real cynical fricks.
