What most people are missing in this thread is that survivors of childhood rape are the forgotten individuals.
Who really gives a flying phukk about them?
It's not a comfortable topic, no matter how you approach it.
Better to focus upon the perpetrator and the colluders, because that gives you something tangible to attack.
Unfortunately, that still leaves the survivors in survival mode; meaning without help.
Apparently if you are attacked by a paedophile, and you survive, you are lucky.
Lucky to be alive. Alive with your memories. Alive with your new fears. Alive with your grief. Alive with your loss of innocence.
Alive only in the flesh. Alive only to grieve. Alive only to seek help.
But where is the help? Apparently if you survive a brutal sexual assault as a child, you will get over it. You will grow out of it. You will be a survivor.
Show me the resources available to survivors.
Show me the path that one in five young adults should be following to seek their own personal path to solidarity within themselves.
I would like to see this path. To me, it is a myth.
One quarter of our people are being ignored.
