Over at The Wild Hunt , Jason Pitzl-Waters has just posted his coverage of new revelations regarding Marion Zimmer Bradley and child sexual abuse. When the story broke this spring of Kenny Klein’s arrest for child pornography, I felt a powerful need to speak to that story, and to share what I could of the professional expertise I’d gained as a therapist working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I was grateful that Jason gave me a platform for sharing that work, and that so many people read it and understood it. I’m not writing from that perspective today. Today, I’m granting myself the luxury of responding just as myself, for myself, as the human being who carries the memories of doing the work that I did ten years ago. What follows… is about me. This is what I feel today. I feel sad. Of course I do. I’m saddened, not so much because of the place Bradley has had in so many Pagan hearts as because it is simply one more story of human trauma and pain.
