RINJ #MeToo Campaign - Fighting for the safety of women and children.

#MeToo Campaign 2017: Success for many Adults.
(Read MeToo-2018)

"MeToo" Works for adults, not for Children. Sadly, children are the majority silent victims of sexual predators. The RINJ Foundation


MeToo for Children? No. Hence the RINJ message to child predators is that there will eventually be consequences.

Kids Who Are Raped seldom talk. We find out in clinic with the first symptoms of STDs.

We spot pubic lice in eyebrows. We see herpes lesions. We investigate psychosomatic symptoms; physical manifestations or complaints of disease symptoms; self harm inclinations; radical mood swings; and physical trauma. We pull blood for onsite lab analysis and perform diagnostics.

We also find out when the survivor grows up and sheds their fears enough to talk. For rapists of children there must be consequences. We do the investigation; gather dna evidence; collect other identification evidence; prepare a statement of particulars and facts; and prepare charging documents, then go see a judge to seek carriage of the file; prosecution of the offender; and a strict penalty on conviction.

RINJ advocates there should be no time limitations on the crime of rape. In most of the world, no woman or child would speak out about being raped. The shame, the fear, the hate and the danger impede prosecuting rapists.

In the Philippines, every second female has been sexually assaulted. Nobody dare talk about it without validly fearing assassination attempts. Hundreds of thousands of women are sold into domestic servitude while their children are raped at home. The world tolerates this just as much as it tolerates President Duterte and his kind who every time we write an article that pisses him off, he tells another rape joke. Rape is no joke.

In Myanmar the Burmese raped Rohingya Muslim children as if it is their birthright. The underfunded United Nations struggles to raise funds to help these people with little sympathy.

#MeToo for kids? No. Sadly, children typically will not do this. Below 13 years of age they are not allowed to even have a Facebook Account. #MeToo very successfull for adults but not for children

In countries like the Philippines where the congress has approved the death penalty, a criminal age of responsibility of 9 and an age of 13 for sexual consent, more than half the female children have been raped. Don't buy a kid. End Child Sex Trade

The first World Congress on Sexual Exploitation, held in Stockholm in 1996, defined commercial sexual exploitation of children as “a sexual abuse by an adult accompanied by remuneration in cash or in kind to the child or third person(s).” Child Sex Trade in Indonesia represents a serious problem for the world

Indonesia child sex trafficking involving children particularly on the resort islands of Bali and Batam has removed countless children from their families. The Indonesian government has been criticized by the RINJ Foundation and other international human rights organizations for losing control of the problem.

In China where female infanticide has left the population balance at 118 men to 100 women, female children have little or no value as humans and hence nearly 100% are sexually assaulted at one time or another in their childhood.

China's problems stem from the one-child-per-family law. Selling baby girls is one way of trimming the family until a boy baby is produced. The kids are trafficked as sex slaves and often end up in Indonesia.

In the Philippines where children are grossly mistreated by the government, kids have no value as humans. (i.e.: Manila street kids hauled away in garbage trucks when foreign dignitaries visit. Summary execution of children by kid-killing-cops in the "head for a head" program for punishing drug users when the Duterte Death Squads (DDS) can't find the locally-listed drug user or Duterte-opponent they seek.)

Consequently, because missing children is more of a norm than a panic, Philippines criminals have been able to make that country the number one source for child pornography and cyber sex slave auctions. Children have a lessor value since Rodrigo Duterte became leader of the Philippines


98% of all rape allegations are true. Weinstein is accused of sexual assault and other sexual misconduct by over six dozen women and allegedly raped Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, Natassia Malthe, Lysette Anthony, Rose McGowan, Annabella Sciorra, Sarah Smith (pseudonom), and two other unnamed survivors whose cases are being investigated by police. Full list at time of publication.

A Caution for Hollywood Weinstein "Dears". Your delay in speaking out has caused many women and children to be raped.

The List of women accusers of Harvey Weinstein
You probably did not want to hear this. But you Hollywood women make so much money from the public's pockets, you have a higher degree of responsibility to uphold the common law. Good citizens report crimes and you should be among the best citizens because of your position in the public trust. Leading women to believe "silence is golden" is your wrongdoing. But thanks for coming forward. You don't want to imagine the kind of rapes, mutilations and deaths we see as a manifestation of gender based violence. If you did you might understand why we make the occasional comment that might sound 'hissy'.
women survivors of Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct. It can take years for a raped survivor to tell their story. Years. And no matter the reason, and there are good reasons, that is nevertheless a sin against the offender's next victim and a perpetuation of raped culture.

That is because something like a quarter of all females on the planet, as an average, are raped survivors. Concomitantly it is not true that a quarter of all men are rapists. Few men raped but that same few raped many children and women. Each rapist (like alleged rapist Harvey Weinstein) that law enforcement catches will prevent dozens of heinous gender-based crimes.

Power of Hollywood Adult Women on 'screen' is stunning. But few talk about the kids.

The elite group of extremely wealthy actresses and models like Angelina Jolie, Rose McGowan, Gwyneth Paltro, Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, Asia Argento et. al. who recently complained about alleged scumbag Harvey Weinstein's sexually deviant misconduct make their living from public trust.

When women actors came forward with their horrifying accounts of Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse, their millions of adoring fans reacted. Just the familiarity and bonding power of the 'screen' has walloped the multi-billion efforts of endless numbers of Civil Society entities through the years in just a few weeks. Alyssa milano metoo
  1. Actor Alyssa Milano, in October 2017, encouraged women to share their personal stories of sexual harassment and the accusations against US producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment exploded onto Facebook and Twitter.
  2. The power of the TV /Movie screen is so "nuclear" it may have elected #sexistpig & misogynist Donald Trump. Trump was almost a household name following years of reality shows and "The Apprentice" starring 'The Donald' Trump. "Thanks, Hollywood (not)".
  3. The mid-December 2017 polls in the Alabama USA Senate race said "No" to Republican favourite Roy Moore because of #metoo accusations of sexing a 14-year old.
  4. The voices raised about Al Franken's sexual misconduct caused him to resign his senate seat.
  5. #Me Too has given Twitter a whole new set of hastags:#SexualHarassment #SexualAbuse #Hollywood #LouisCK #GeorgeTakei #CharlieSheen #AndyDick #RichardDreyfuss #JohnGrissom #DavidGuillod #DustinHoffman #JeremyPiven #BrettRatner #StevenSeagal ...
