2. In my opinion sexual exploitation as a great deal to do with power.

Sociopathy and power is a dangerous soup. A recent example is the revelation of sexual abuse that we have now learned has long existed in Women’s Olympic level gymnastics. The Ohio State wrestling team is another case. Private schools, especially boarding schools where children and teenagers are not living with their families, are notorious. Sexual abuse of women in the workplace is a story as old as time.

The fact that some people so easily disregard and disrespect the boundaries and dignity of others is a reality that I find deeply depressing. And you are right PCIntern in that an event of abuse like you wrote about has lifelong ramifications. Sexual abuse ruins lives. It takes a certain evil to participate in behaviors that cause that kind of damage.

Thank you for posting. We will all soon learn once again who those are possessing a moral compass and of those who do not possess one at all.
