Meanwhile, my eldest brother sexually abused me because of how he had been abused. In fact, it’s not uncommon for sexually abused children to act out by sexually abusing other children. I know a number of fellow survivors of sexual abuse at the hands of other children.
For many of us, it already has been since early childhood. Because we were abused by adults and/or other children, and no responsible adults stepped in to stop the abuse.
I’ve been a survivor and a warrior since I was three years old. I’ll never be anything else. And I wouldn’t want to be.
Only because many people like yourself refuse to entertain alternatives, or let the rest of us live differently from how you choose to without insisting we’re ruining the world.
Give change a chance. You might learn something new.
Yes. My eldest brother sexual abused me for a while when he was 12 and I was 3. When I told my parents something that led to them figuring out things weren’t quite right, they didn’t allow him to be alone with me anymore.
Without that intervention, we would both be so much more damaged now. Appropriate adult supervision does not harm children. It shields them from harm.
