Telling my story has brought over 1000 signatures to this petition. That has helped me recover more than any shrink ever has. So please tell yours as its the only way. I want to tell my grandchildren im a surviver not a victim.
I know what you mean....sorry it had to happen to you and to all the others
<3 love to all us survivors, who know how to recognize our healing... Thank you for talking about theses hard issues and making change one step at a time. The silence ends with us.
Joanne and others. Your strength, brought tears to my eyes. You all are amazing!
Child abusers were most likely abused themselves. Definitely we need to have conversations about what has the abuse happen, and what kind of support can we create to lesson the amount of damages caused as a result of it for family & society as a whole. Oppression may be a large over looked major cause, though not the only cause, and having more conversation may help to reveal those possible causes, including suppression.
EVERY LGBTI Friend I have has said that they made their "CHOICE" due to EARLY CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ATTACK (under age 14) from another Person!!
I have never been molested, nor raped... and I shouldn´t have to be in order to understand that a statute of limitations is completely asinine and absurd in this day and age. It doesn´t help to dissipate the rape culture we as a people have created, and it certainly isn´t helping the victims. why isn´t this more talked about?! >:L
he would be in jail or dead. instate it for gods sake! why is this cdime diffrent than physical murder.
this is common human decency...
I've had this experience a few times.AWFUL!!! The victims are revictimized over & over!The 'boys were drinking,you were wearing too revealing clothing,you'd said 'YES' before,you really wanted it, you've done it with xx why not me?'' and on & on.Going to court is horrid,esp. for a young person.It's time to stop making the victim the guilty one.
I was 3 years old the first time I was raped and I remember it all. I have been in therapy for 11 years and am still on my journey to healing. It has and continues to be a struggle, but I know I am a survivor.
Anybody who would sexually abuse a child should be destroyed quickly...
Destroyed & in front of the family.
Wow! This 3-pronged goal is long, long overdue and much needed. How smart! Yes, we do need all 50 states to eliminate the statute of limitations on sexual abuse. I find it easy to believe that incest is the most common form of childhood sexual abuse. Yes, I pledge to help hold violators of innocent children accountable. Thank you!
