BarbaricBy Julya Oui“I saw our old school teacher while I was having lunch today.”“Which one?”“The pedophile.”“You mean..?”“Ya, him. It’s a wonder he’s still alive.”“But he was a good teacher.”“Good teacher my ass. How can you even justify that over his sexualabuse?”“I’m not. I’m just saying he was a good teacher. He taught us a lot of things and I’m sure you benefited from it as well.”“And because of that we’re letting him get away with murder?”“Hey, it wasn’t that bad. It was only … molestation.”“How would you know?”“And how would you know?”“A friend told me, that’s how I know. And you?”
“I admit that I don’t really know but there were no complaints so itcouldn’t have been that bad. I mean he was only attracted to boys anywayhow bad could it have been?”“Da fuck! Don’t you know what’s a violation of rights? A post-traumaticstress that could lead to personality disorder, alcohol or drug abuse, suicide,low self-esteem and hundreds of other disorders?”“Hey, the boys were teenagers; they knew what they were getting into. It’s not like they were raped.”“Do you know that this bastard lures students to his home on thepretext of schoolwork and then show them pornography to get them excitedso that he could sexually abuse them?”“You keep saying abuse as though he put a gun to their heads or beatthem into submission.”“Fuck, abuse is abuse whether it is done gently or forcefully. We’vekept quiet all our lives while our friends suffered the indignation andembarrassment of this dirty secret. I want to do something right for achange. I am writing to all the teachers, the principal and to the pedophile todemand an apology.”“That’s crazy. It’s been over thirty years, why dig up the past? Besides,the teacher is suffering from high blood pressure and kidney problems. He’san old man in his seventies. Why would you want to make things difficult for
him? Don’t you know what’s forgiveness? I’m sure he has become a betterman now.”“Fuck forgiveness. It’s one thing to pardon a person from the crime hehas committed but it’s another to bring justice to the people who wereabused.”“At the expanse of opening a can of worms?”“I want that pedophile and all the other teachers who knew about hissexual activities to own up to the crime they have committed. One is theperpetrator and the rest are the accessories. What’s so wrong about that?”“Everything. You’re going to upset a lot of people and probably bringshame to their families.”“Shame? Oh my god. You talk about shaming their families but youforget that the boys were shamed by a teacher they trusted. They wereyoung and impressionable. Full of hope and innocence.”“Yeah, but the victims didn’t even come forward then what makes youthink they’ll come forward now to corroborate your, your retribution.”“I don’t expect those married men with families to come forward to tellthe whole world about their past. Hell, I don’t even expect those who stayedsingle to do it if they don’t want to. This is about taking responsibility forone’s action it’s not about exposing someone’s dirty laundry. But sometimesby uncovering the truth secrets are discovered.”
