Now before you come to say hello you should know, whilst I do speak publicly, I do come with a few rules and 'tudes of my own - So, please be advised my blogs are not for the emotionally sensitive or vulnerable and, as for anyone else, if you don't like my posts then please just stop looking and/or formally complain (in writing) to the victims ombudsman #OFFPISS!
My name is Shy Keenan and I was born and broken in Birkenhead Merseyside - UK. By the time I was 14, I'd been orphaned, physically emotionally and sexually abused, indecently filmed, photographed, drugged, sold and left for dead, uneducated, sent to children jail for stealing, failed and exploited by the authorities and deeply prejudiced by a groomed abusive and frightened society...
Thank goodness I'm also a natural born phoenix. It's practically embedded into my DNA - to rise from the ashes of a dark place and strive to live a good life worth living, whilst I'm alive.
As a wheelchair user who also manages severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD) I like to stay focused on what I can do, not what I can't. I don't believe in God, but I do believe in good (that's just one more tiny 'o').
I do believe in the good and the bad in human beings who live in the here and the now, that if you're not at the table, then you're probs on the menu and you should never let anyone bite you (unless invited), that the only way that bad people prevail is when good men and women do nothing, that the only way to stop it, is to find a way to tell and that the very best revenge is to survive and survive well.
As an international bestselling author I talk about my childhood, life and work as a phoenix and as an awarded victims advocate who speaks for those victimised by paedophile crimes. Now when I say paedophiles, I mean all male and female paedophiles, and when I say 'crimes', I mean all of the crimes that paedophiles commit from grooming, exploiting, abusing to child abduction and or murder.
I'm the UK's leading expert in Anti-Victim Prejudice (#AVP). I live within a paedophile-groomed anti-victim society that's more afraid of the victims than the offenders and far too afraid of the offenders to be of any real help in stopping them.
AVP. I was never a child prostitute, I was a prostituted child and until you understand this you will never really turn this paedophile tide. And please don't call it 'child porn', it offends the victims of child abuse images (which should matter to most good people) and helps the paedophiles to undermine the crime and sell what are really crime scene photographs, which should matter to all real child protectors.
As a high profile social injustice campaigner/law maker/victims advocate I've been described by some as three times stronger than any household bleach - because it's true - but I'm also a living breathing human being with thoughts, feelings and opinions that I share on my blog, please do feel free to join me.
