I too am a survivor of sexual child abuse. I never told cos my mother told me everyday that my birth ruined her life. She still talks to my abuser who is my brother. Her excuse is "his father never loved him" i talk to mum & just live with it. I don't have a choice. Mum has been better. I caught scabies 2months ago & she's helped me? After having scabies i feel raped all over again but i gotta live even tho i feel like life ain't fair tonight as its my birthday on wed. I must think Im lucky...

After having scabies i feel raped all over again but i gotta live even tho i feel like life ain't fair tonight as its my birthday on wed. I must think Im lucky to not be a farm animal with mange & absess's stuck in some small cage waiting to be brutal killed to fill someone's gut. Atm Im helping others as it helps me. Really Im a mite eating & shutting all over this planet. Pedophiles need to all get a case of mange & be stuck in a cage so they know what its like to feel helpless. Bless you all & please don't take me personally Im just a bit suicidal atm. Really Im lucky cos Im not a child anymore.

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.

How can anyone abuse a child, one would have to be a scum sucking bottom feeder, not fit for society, have lost all rights to any form of freedom - Pathetic excuse as a human - so pathetic

I also am a survivor of sexual abuse if not for family I do not think that I would have made it through I did not have counseling for this but did end up as a pretty good guy I must say so myself, di turn one man in for sexually abusing his daughter and he got her pregnant and now the girl and her baby are doing fine, if I had not stepped in lord know how many others would have been abused by him.

I am a survivor as well as my daughteris and my son with mmental health issues was accused of rape that I know for s fact didn't happen because I was there when it was supposed to have happened and so was the mother of the child. The childs grandfather brother and uncle was abusing this child and had been for many years but my son spent 10 years in prison for something he didn't do even the Dr. on the prosecutions side said he could link my son to this child because it had happened more then...

The childs grandfather brother and uncle was abusing this child and had been for many years but my son spent 10 years in prison for something he didn't do even the Dr. on the prosecutions side said he could link my son to this child because it had happened more then once and it wss still happening and my son had been incarcerated for 2 & 1/2 years @ that point. My husband as well wss lied on as well by his step daughter because she was mad at hI'm she told me that herslef. So yes I am very much against any kind of abuse but sometimes the so called victim lies. So for all concrrnef you have to be very careful.

its more widespread than we think...its also time we recognized the lifelong damage it does to the survivors. lets join hands to prevent it.... report it... talk about it...do whatever you can.
