She shared the post on Facebook and wrote: 'Let's all wave hello to my fellow peers at Melbourne University. As a result I decided to publicly post the screenshots because I don't think it's right that this culture is perpetuated.'It's not particularly relevant in achieving the outcome I wish to pursue on a larger scale, which ultimately is to bring awareness about the issue and have people understand that it should not be merely written off as "boys being boys".

But then, after the longest hour of my life, a man who could easily pass as my 25-years-older twin brother seemed to have vanished like Houdini. “Dad,” I said into my phone when the numbness wore off enough for me to speak again. He had alienated his own children—how many there are and by how many women, we actually don’t know—but perhaps I would shelter him. A bit more than a year ago, my mother called, which is how I knew something was wrong.
All that was left for me to do was stare at that chair and wonder how one proceeds with the rest of one’s day after something like that, my services no longer needed by U. My three sisters and I have most contact with our parents through my father; my mother hates talking on the phone and never calls just to chat. “My brother was arrested,” she said in a disbelieving whisper.

Martin was arrested in December 2008 and charged with 82 counts of trafficking child pornography on the Internet. Nicer still: For whatever reason, after a suicide attempt on April 14 failed and he improbably woke up after downing, by his count, 52 Ambiens and “I don’t know what else,” he grabbed his wallet, straggled out to the beaches north of Fort Lauderdale and eventually found himself at a Greyhound station.
Two Diet Cokes and two menus remain before me, so I know someone sat there moments ago. As have countless troubled and derelict souls before him, he was drawn to one of those places in our great nation that people flee to, where they believe anonymity will be theirs, where countless security cameras spy into every conceivable angle but somehow tend not to see anything important. For him, it offered all those perks and one more: Me, his only nephew.
