It's been happening on an industrial scale in England for over 30 years now.

> Peter McLoughlin spent years believing the Leftist narrative, namely it was 'a racist myth' that organised Muslim groups in Britain and the Netherlands ('grooming gangs') were luring white schoolgirls into a life of prostitution. But in 2009 he first encountered people who said their children had been groomed like this. These informants had non-white people in their immediate and extended family, and were thus unlikely to be racists. So McLoughlin dug deeper and what he found shocked him: there were mounds of evidence that social workers, police officers, Muslim organisations, journalists and even some Members of Parliament must have known about these grooming gangs for decades, and they had turned a blind-eye to these crimes. He also came across references to incidents where any proof had since vanished.

Here’s a couple of books that will give you strategies to be a more effective educator, especially with low-income students. Realistically the strategies are great for any kid, as all kids can use some support and empathy from the adults in the lives.

“Reading and Reaching Children Who Hurt” by Susan E. Craig - How to more effectively teach children who have experienced trauma (Adverse Childhood Experiences). His experience is the goal of the strategies given in the book. (Amazon) I haven’t read it, but she also has two more recent books, “Trauma Sensitive Schools” K-5 and 6-12

Trauma Sensitive Schools: Approaches that Work - A project by the Massachusetts Advocates for Children and Harvard Law School has free books (downloadable pdf). One focused on the background and the second is about implementing a school-wide approach.

“Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria” by Dr. Beverly Tatum - Covers the theory of racial identity development and how to support positive racial identity in an educational setting. (Amazon)

Here's just a few reasons as to why it bothers me.




Why doesn't this bother you?

Still waiting for that benefit. There are plenty of non-Muslims in the world that could fill those roles you speak of.

Childhood sexual abuse and assault, like he experienced, is often a huge issue for people's sexuality later in life. Especially when their body responds to the sexual stimulation as a child, even if they didn't consent to it (and that is extremely common)

It can be harder for boys, because of societal beliefs that they should be happy and grateful for this kind of sexual attention from adult women.

There are a lot of therapists who help people heal from sexual trauma like this, and some great self help books out there too, if he wants to go that route.


This is my go-to list of rape recovery and sexual abuse recovery self-help books, including some of the precious few books for male victims, as well.

Peter McLoughlin the author of Easy Meat seems to keep a sort of record. He was pretty much banned from all social media years ago for speaking about this.

Edit; He’s also on Gab which seems to be down just now for some reason.

Tommy and his popularity came from Grooming gangs, he began speaking about them in 2006/07, but was obviously denounced as a racist and a liar because he targetted a specific ethnic community, and, of course, being the leader of those plonkers.

By the time these gangs were proven to be true, people began seeing Tommy in a different light, hell, he even co-wrote a book on it called Easy Meat.

His appeal from terrorist didn't really take hold, his main support was from grooming gang families and now mostly poor communities.

He did not make up the problem, the problem is very real. He was convicted of fraud in an earlier crime, He lied about other things, but the grooming gangs were not one of them.

I can recommend a few things. For some reason I like reading books about people who have escaped from fundamentalist sects. These may not be exactly what you're looking for but you might want to give them a try.

  • I Fired God: My Life Inside - and Escape from -the Secret World of the Independent Fundamental Baptist Cult by Jocelyn Zichterman. This is a book written by a woman who grew up in the IFB church (the same kind of church the Duggars belong to) and she talks about how abusive her childhood was because of it. Eventually she and her husband leave the church and have to cut off contact with her family.

  • Banished: Surviving My Years in the Westboro Baptist Church by Lauren Drain. Lauren's family joined the WBC when she was a teenager. She was later excommunicated and had to learn to make her own way in the world. The rest of her family still belongs to the church.

  • Cut Me Loose: Sin and Salvation After My Ultra-Orthodox Girlhood by Leah Vincent. This is actually about a woman leaving ultra-orthodox Judaism but her struggle with no longer being part of the only world she's ever known is very similar to what I've read in books about people leaving Christianity. It's a brutally honest memoir but it the ending is happy.

  • Keep Sweet: Children of Polygamy by Debbie Palmer. This one is written by a woman who grew up in the fundamentalist Mormon community of Bountiful. She suffered some severe abuse in both childhood and and as an adult. She made her escape when she saw the same things happening to her children.

closer to 30 years. Sikhs were making documentaries about this stuff in the 80s since the rapey newcomers (read: Pakistanis) moved into their neighborhoods when they first started migrating into Britain.

Thank you for asking! It's called How I Escaped Evangelical Hell: A Memoir. It's the story of my life. I was raised by radical evangelical Christian fundamentalists in an abusive environment, and the book shows how my relentless pursuit of a career in video games helped me escape that life and start an awesome new one with a great, fulfilling career. :)

It's not a light read, but it is funny.

u/pufrfsh · 2 pointsr/relationship_advice

Your parents are toxic. This is not loving behavior; it is controlling, manipulative, and abusive. Of course you’re scared! You have to walk on eggshells around them, when they should be the people you turn to for comfort and love.

They have to want to change. It sounds like they’re nowhere near that step, so trying to maintain a relationship will only cause you more misery and anxiety. You are an adult now and you can choose who you want in your life. Choose people who build you up, love you, and make you feel safe. Always those kinds of people. Your parents are not it. If you have the means to move out or disconnect from them, do so. Give yourself time and space to heal.

But it’s Your Family: Cutting Ties with Toxic Family Members by Dr. Sherrie Campbell

Dealing With Emotionally Immature Parents by Priscilla Posey

Also look up narcissistic abuse, Borderline Personality Disorder, and emotional abuse.

That's an awesome philosophy. I wish every workplace was like this.

I'm reading a book by Randall Fields that explains the struggles he had as a ward of the state, being black, and being with an abusive step parent.

This book has examples of not only Fields but people all around him that were affected by today's racism.

TL;DR: Racism today in the American work place (in NYC) does still exist.

As far as I know there have been no prosecutions in the USA either, despite thousands of women being at risk. Fun fact, some white Christians in the USA used to practice FGM:

Interesting IAmA, thank you :)... I'm currently reading this

A book on children being lured into prostitution by pimps. This wasn't the case with you right? How did the first time happen? How did you get business?
