Journalists and critics remain strikingly uncomfortable noting the sexual aspect of MJ's charisma for so many fans. MJ remained an object of lust worldwide to his last day; the media continues to ignore this pound gorilla in the room. Here's a comment I just posted at a major newspaper.

Wade Robson and James Safechuck speak about their childhood experiences with the pop superstar — and Dan Reed explains why he felt he had to expose their allegations in his film Leaving Neverland. Even though Safechuck and I are both in Los Angeles, it was decided that instead of meeting in person, it would be better for me to speak to him on a multiway call with Robson, from his home in Maui.
