I can't criticize you for having been a child taken advantage of. Children are vulnerable - they don't realize themselves just how vulnerable they actually are until someone hurts them.
Hearing about child molestation and rape in general always makes me very upset and makes me want to do inhuman things to the offenders; how can they do such a thing? :mum
It also makes me gravely ashamed of being a man, so if you feel guilty about bashing men, I just want to let you know that I feel I understand (at least enough not to be able to blame you for it).
about six years ago I was on a leisure time activity course (my mom had insisted that I go on such a trip and not wanting to disappoint her, I signed up). On this trip I got to know a quiet, introverted young man (he was 30 years old and I was 20). It didn't take long to get to know him, because he suddenly confided me in his troubles: his girlfriend had committed suicide a few years earlier and he was still trying to cope with her loss and all the revelations that came out of it.
It had turned out that she had been molested by her own dad (he told me that her relationship with her dad had always seemed very strained). First her mom died, which naturally made her quite upset. But when her dad died, something went completely wrong for her and she ended up deliberately giving herself a sleeping pill overdose. Before her suicide, her boyfriend had tried in vain to comfort her. Neither he, nor I was able to really understand the full reason behind her suicide, but this story affected me deeply and made me realize that.... the crime in question is far, far worse than I can imagine.
Genuinely sorry to hear that this...atrocity has happened to you.
