As mentioned before, these are just some of the symbols accepted and used in the online pedophile community to identify themselves. They can be displayed on websites, in avatar form, and can also be found off line, in the form of coins, key chains, stickers, rings, necklaces etc.
A heart within a heart, or "GLogo" "GirlLover" is used by pedophiles attracted to girls. The heart in a heart, to them, represents a adult/ female child relationship.
A blue spiral-shaped triangle symbol, or "BLogo" "BoyLover", symbolizes a boy (small triangle) surrounded by an older male (larger triangle)- and is meant to show adult/male child relationships.
The butterfly CLogo a.k.a. “ChildLover” (commonly looks like four touching hearts) in pink/blue represents non-preferential gender pedophiles (girl or boy attracted, often both).
The yin-yang looking circle is CGlogo, used in reference to the website, Common Ground, which was created as a place for both girl and boy attracted pedophiles to meet and sympathize with each other.
The pink/blue triangles is "AmaroSymbol" is a variation of the CGLogo.
But, it's not just symbols that you ought to know about. The online version of the "strange creepy man" uses their own shorted slang (think: your teenagers spelling while text messaging) in order to classify themselves, and their interests.
* AoA: Short for "age of attraction" meaning the age groups of children they are attracted to
* MAA: Minor attracted adult (used in hopes of sounding less sickening than the word "pedophile")
* AoC: Age of (legal) consent
* CL: ChildLover, pedophile
* GL: Attracted to girls
* BL: Attracted to boys
* CL: ChildLover, pedophile
* YF: Young friend, used when speaking about a victim
You'll also see a good deal of "LGs" or little girls, "GMs" for a "girl moments", which is time spent with a young girl (that can either be a passing second consisting of nothing more than a glance or a smile, or a lengthy visit with a girl).
Then there are the chats, or message boards:
* CC: known as Common Ground, a place for pedophiles of both preferences. Common ground, while being the one that touts of being for "all" pedophiles is less used than either of the other forums:
* GC: GirlChat- for those that favor victimizing girls
* BC: BoyChat- for those that favor victimizing boys
|Subject:||Here Are Some Numbers To Think About...|
Child molestation has reached epidemic proportions. 25-33% of children continue to be molested. 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before their 18th birthdays. What we are doing now, is not working. It’s time to change that. The time for looking the other way has come to an end.
Think about those numbers for a minute... if I were to just count the grandchildren of my parents, there are 13 all together. 6 girls and 7 boys. If 1 in 4 girls will be sexually abused by their 18 birthday, that means that chances are very likely that one of the girls in my family will be sexually abused. If 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused, that means it is very likely that one of the boys in my family will be sexually abused. 25-33%... that's a quarter to one third of all children. One quarter of my parents' grandchildren would be 3.25.
How do these numbers translate into your family?
95% of all child molestation is done by someone that the child and/or family knows, not by strangers. That does not necessarily mean that someone you know right now is likely a pedophile. Some will find a way to become a "family friend" to gain access to children. So please be sure to read the Warriors For Innocence grooming articles.
This will give you an idea of the extent to which a predator will go in order to gain your trust and to gain access to your child. The only way to prevent this is to be aware of the tricks used, and to be vigilant. I'm not saying to lock your kids up and don't let anyone near them. I'm just saying that you should educate your children, agree on some rules (especially where the internet is concerned), and pay attention to how others interact with your children and with you.
I was pointed in the direction of this excellent website, which gives a ton of information on how these people get parents to give them access to their children. The quotes above is from this site. It's called Warriors For Innocence (WFI)
I tried posting a link to this particular article on the WFI site, but I can't seem to get it to work properly. So here is the info. Please note that this article is from the Warriors For Innocence website:
Child Sexual Abuse Statistics
A lot of people ask about the statistics on Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). I've dug up a few numbers. It just makes me sick to my stomach every time I see these...
1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before their 18th birthdays.
1 in 5 children are sexually solicited while on the Internet.
Nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults (including assaults on adults) occur to children ages 17 and under.
The median age for reported sexual abuse is 9 years old.
Approximately 20% of the victims of sexual abuse are under age eight.
50% of all victims of forcible sodomy, sexual assault with an object, and forcible fondling are under age twelve.
Most child victims never report the abuse. Over 30% of victims never disclose the experience to ANYONE.
85-90% of all sexual assaults against children are committed by someone whom the victim knew.
35% involve a family member, and 50% of all assaults take place in the home of the child or the offender.
Nearly 70% of child sex offenders have between 1 and 9 victims; at least 20% have 10 to 40 victims.
An average serial child molester may have as many as 400 victims in his lifetime.
The typical sexual predator will assault 117 times before being caught.
An estimated 3.3 percent of the 4,300 released child molesters were rearrested for another sex crime against a child within 3 years. Most of the children they were alleged to have molested after leaving prison were age 13 or younger.
Almost 80% of victims initially deny abuse or are tentative in disclosing. Of those who do disclose, approximately 75% disclose accidentally. Additionally, of those who do disclose, more than 20% eventually recant even though the abuse occurred.
Fabricated sexual abuse reports constitute only 1% to 4% of all reported cases. Of these reports, 75% are falsely reported by adults and 25% are reported by children. Children only fabricate ½% of the time.
Victims of child sexual abuse report more substance abuse problems. 70-80% of sexual abuse survivors report excessive drug and alcohol use.
Young girls who are sexually abused are 3 times more likely to develop psychiatric disorders or alcohol and drug abuse in adulthood, than girls who are not sexually abused.
Among male survivors, more than 70% seek psychological treatment for issues such as substance abuse, suicidal thoughts and attempted suicide. Males who have been sexually abused are more likely to violently victimize others.

Hail and Welcome!
post a comment
This is a group designed to inform, discuss, and protect our most precious gift: children. Anyone who would like to post information about protecting children from any form of abuse, warnings about convicted predators/abusers that are on the loose, questions about how to keep children safe and spot problems with adults in the child's life, information on missing and exploited children, etc.... is free to do so. You are also more than welcome to share your own ordeals if you, yourself, are a survivor. There is a topic titled "Survivor Stories" for this purpose.
There is a simple rule that is designed to keep this forum a safe haven for all involved and all who pass by and may need guidance or help:
RESPECT: Please be respectful of others. This is NOT a debate forum. This is a place where child safety comes FIRST. Regardless of differences of opinions elsewhere, most people can agree that the safety of children is more important. Following this simple rule will help to keep things civil.
Please note: This group is a continuation of the work done by Nightshadow and Rain. I've agreed to take over ownership and administration of this group at their request because I feel it is so important. We need to keep our children safe. We need more groups like this. In an effort to get the word out, I have copied this group in several different networking sites on the web.
If you find the information here informative, please join the group and invite others. For those folks that you are uncomfortable inviting to a Pagan group, feel free to copy and paste any information into an email to them, or email links to sites we've linked to. The more people that have this information, the fewer victims there will be! I firmly believe this. The child of an informed parent is a safer child. Even the children of others around you will be safer for having one more aware person around them. The main purpose of this group is to spread the word, to inform others of tactics used by child predators. The more people arm themselves with the facts and ways to combat this problem, the safer all of our children will be.
Thank you for your support of this group.
