Childhood sex abuse survivors are appalled at your behavior.
My friend Janice suggests we all take a moment at noon today to think about victims of child sex abuse, and send them our love. I think that is a beautiful idea.
And thanks, Jac, for the link.
A law should be passed that would make EVERY adult a mandated reporter. Obviously, many people think it’s ok to just walk away and let someone else deal with situations involving sexual abuse.
I totally agree.
Also appalling is the fact that the man who finally reported the rape to his superiors has been threatened — IF I thought the threats were because he didn’t go to the police immediately, I’d not be so pissed I guess — but I gather the threats are because he actually did a tiny fraction of what he should have done.
Like others I wonder why the guy who witnessed the rape did not grab the perp and knock him silly or yell or take some kind of action. I think how the child must have felt doubly betrayed.
This has to stop.
Yes. It does.
