Back in the 1980′s, a female teacher volunteered to help one of her male high school students who was home sick for an extended period of time. I believe he was recovering from “Mono.” She promised this 16-year-old student and his parents she would keep bring him his assignments and was willing to tutor him in his home to avoid the chance of him falling behind in his studies. His name was Scott Bicknell.
What she was doing, in reality, was grooming the young boy sexually in the same way a male predator grooms his victims. This young boy was very naive and innocent when it came to sexual matters as his family were good IFB parents. He had grown up sheltered. You can imagine the effect of an older woman on the confused, raging hormones of a 16-year-old boy … from a physical standpoint, it would be extraordinarily difficult for a boy that age to resist, let alone one who was sheltered to the extent this boy was. I’ll leave the resulting encounters to your imagination based on that scenario.
When the situation was finally exposed the young boy was made to stand before his church congregation and apologize. The letter was read by his pastor but the teachers name was never mentioned.
His adult teacher …
His married, adult teacher!
The married, adult teacher lost her job as a teacher – but was never reported to the police. The principal of the school rolled his eyes when the subject was broached – reporting this to the authorities was clearly not on his agenda. This was simply a “consenting relationship” rather than a predatory one. The same teacher later went on and taught in public school in Wisconsin since she didn’t have a record of sexual contact with her one of her male students.
But, the young boy’s punishment wasn’t over. The principal told his parents the boy had to come to school, but not sit in a classroom with his friends. He was to be locked in the church basement – alone. The father taught at the school too. He and his wife relented and agreed to this arrangement as it seemed it was a better choice than what the pastor of the church and principal of the church associated school’s other suggestion – ship their son to a Roloff Home for “wayward” boys. However, the boy soon found himself in trouble for some other infraction. This time, the principal of school, expelled the boy forbidding him from ever returning to school. Furthermore, the father was fired from his teaching position for not being “capable of controlling his son.” My question is, why wasn’t the principal and pastor fired for their inability to manage one of their teachers and report a crime against one of their minor students?
Another son of Nancy Bicknell, who is 2 years younger than Scott was horrifically abused. The younger son was the recipient of a “special spanking” by one Marvin Munyan. Marvin decided to do what he demonstrated for others . Marvin Munyan was the “designated spanker” for the school. Munyan is also touted as “quite the expert” where it came to corporal punishment …
Eau Claire, Wisconsin parents worried they may not have mastered the proper
technique for beating their children got a refresher course at a recent spanking seminar held at the Eau Claire Gospel Center. About 50 people showed up for the event, which featured a demonstration of spanking skills by Marvin Munyon and a teen-age assistant, according to a report in the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram. ”You spank them right here on the gluteus maximus, which God made for that purpose,” the Bible-quoting Munyon told the crowd.
According to Munyon, good parents will use paddles or switches instead of their hands–lest the children come to associate their parents’ hands with pain. And they should start spanking early–preferably at the age of two or so. “If you wait too long to begin physical discipline,” he explained, “it may be too late.”
Nancy Bicknell and her two son’s Scott and Doug Bicknell recently appeared on a segment of CNN’s Ungodly Discipline.
Munyan is now a lobbyist for “defending family values” .
The other day, Mrs. Bicknell received the following anonymous letter via the United States Postal Service.
Note: "MM" stands for Marv Munyan
Few outside of the Bicknell family were aware that Doug Bicknell was not only spanked but allegedly sodomized when he was spanked as a teenage boy. As a matter of fact, Nancy Bicknell did not know these details until just a few years ago. ” Fewer knew that Marvin Munyan was the person who did this. Neither Mrs. Bicknell, nor her sons never used the word sodomy. Doug Bicknell further alleges that he saw Munyan masturbating outside of his clothes when Munyan told young Doug to ‘clean up’ after his “special spanking.” If you watch the CNN interview the reason why for the spanking was never specified, and there is no mention of sodomy.
Nancy has written that Doug was bare bottom spanked because Munyan made Doug “drop his drawers” since he wanted to insure Doug had not placed magazines inside of his pants.
What is very disturbing, is that someone who was familiar with a medical procedure Doug had last year to repair rectal tearing in which he alleged he had been sodomized said something. Doug had told this to his surgeon. A nurse who cared for him before, during or after the procedure leaked this information that was then used to further victimize Doug Bicknell and the Bicknell family. What was done here, by leaking this protected health information is not only is a breach of ethical standards, it is a criminal offense punishable by loss of her nursing license, fine up t0 $25, 000 and imprisonment for up to 10 years for knowingly divulging protected health information in order to malign and damage the person from whom it was about.
Now, because of this action on the part of the nurse, people know that Doug Bicknell’s abuse was not limited only to being whipped more than 50 times, but then he was allegedly sodomized as he was stuck 53 times with a paddle (with holes in it, no less). It was bad enough that Doug Bicknell was punished in a way such as this, but now to send this letter to his mother (which naturally found its way to the Internet) there is no way the writer can claim she didn’t do this willfully and knowingly. The information about rectal bleeding, rectal tearing, and removal of scar tissue was discussed in Doug Bicknell’s medical record. In the same medical record it was also discussed that he may have a permanent colostomy as a result of his injury, the time lapse since the original injury, etc.
The “pocket-poo” portion of the letter was a cruel reference to the fact that a 41 year old man went into the procedure knowing he may wake up with a permanent colostomy. Thankfully, this didn’t become a reality. How DARE this person write in the first sentence about how Nancy is a “precious soul in God’s sight” but then turn around and show such callous brutality.
To the “lady” who wrote this letter, you don’t know God. Stop taking His name in vain!
Doug Bicknell has suffered from the effects of this “special spanking” for 25 or more years. He has suffered the effects of the secondary wounding and the result of being a male rape survivor. Men rarely speak about these issues, and face myths and stereotypes when they do tell of being raped. Doug has done what many men do. They attempt to dull the pain of the aftereffects of being abused with alcohol and drug addiction.
May God have Mercy on Marvin Munyan! May God have Mercy on the person who wrote and published the above letter.
Meanwhile, hopefully both Scott and Doug may receive some peace and know that others are out here, mourn, and pray with him. Hopefully, we will also find a way to bring to justice the writer of the above letter. Someone who has such loose venomous lips doesn’t deserve to remain a nursing professional. She deserves at the very least, to lose her nursing job. She needs to have her nursing license revoked by the State of Wisconsin. May she also be tried and sentenced to the fullest extent under HIPPA and any other privacy laws as well.
Note: A forensic document examiner shed their insights concerning this letter with the Bicknells, and can be read here with Nancy’s permission. (The examiner was not aware of that the initials ’MM’ referred to Marvin Muyan and appears to not have any knowledge of who Munyan is, or his relationship to this case.)
Nancy Bicknell has written and recently published her book, “A Mother’s Memoirs of Two Brothers.” It is the story of great pain, the journey to spiritual healing, and hope. A added treat is all of the illustrations in the book are original artwork by Nancy. Please purchase your copy today.
