The statistics are shocking. About 90% of children who are victims of sexual abuse know their abuser. Only 10% of sexually abused children are abused by a stranger. The younger the victim, the more likely it is that the abuser is a family member. Of those molesting a child under six, 50% were family members. Family members also accounted for 23% of those abusing children ages 12 to 17.
There’s an accepted culture of incest in too many families. Too often, children are sexually abused by fathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, etc. and are taught to keep quiet about it and move on. Research shows that victims do not mentally move on from the trauma of abuse and often suffer in silence. Usually, they continue to interact with their abusers because their families prefer to sweep their assaults under the rug and pretend like it never happened.
Well it did happen. And the women who endured the horrific experience are ready to out their abusers by sharing their stories. They hope so save some other young girl from the sexual lust that exists inside monsters that we call family.
