‘I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.’

This blog started out by exposing sexual abuses of any kind again another. It has grown to focus on the sexual abuses within the Ultra Orthodox Jewish communities globally.
Personally, no matter where or how it is written, I believe it is an abomination for a grown man to stick his [adult sized] penis inside a baby or a child of any age (male or female). I can’t imagine a nine year old boy being able or expected to perform on demand (sexual intercourse) with a grown woman or man (let alone achieving an erection at the age of nine in order to penetrate a woman or a man).
Above all else, this being allowed among family members is the worst abuse of all.
Allegations of child molestation and rape have been rampant in the Ultra Orthodox Judaism communities globally.
Why is this behavior allowed and practiced (see ‘Child Rape Assembly Line,’ https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/the-child-rape-assembly-line-0000141-v20n11, specifically… On a visit to Jerusalem in 2005, Rabbi Rosenberg entered into a mikvah in one of the holiest neighborhoods in the city, Mea She’arim. ‘I opened a door that entered into a schvitz,’ he recalled. ‘Vapors everywhere, I can barely see. My eyes adjust, and I see an old man, my age, long white beard, a holy-looking man, sitting in the vapors. On his lap, facing away from him, is a boy, maybe seven years old. And the old man is having anal sex with this boy. This boy was speared on the man like an animal, like a pig, and the boy was saying nothing. But on his face—fear. The old man [looked at me] without any fear, as if this was common practice. He didn’t stop. I was so angry, I confronted him. He removed the boy from his penis, and I took the boy aside. I told this man, It’s a sin before G-d, a mishkovzucher. What are you doing to this boy’s soul? You’re destroying this boy! He had a sponge on a stick to clean his back, and he hit me across the face with it. ‘How dare you interrupt me!’ he said. I had heard of these things for a long time, but now I had seen.’)?
A homosexual [nature] for an adolescent or adult is forbidden within Ultra Orthodox Judaism, but sex with a non-consenting minor is allowed and considered ‘natural’ among Ultra Orthodox Jews (based on Talmudic laws).
This is beyond disgusting to me. I was born to fight for those that can’t speak up for themselves. That is my G-d’s work. To expose the sexual abuses among the Ultra Orthodox Jews globally.
These sexual abuses are rationalized and justified based on Talmudic Laws that seem to give Ultra Orthodox Jews the so-called license to do these sexual abuses to infants and children in the name of G-d, the Torah, and Ultra Orthodox Judaism.
This is why I call this Site, ‘Fucked Over.’
