From 6-14 I was molested, by an older male relative.
16, accused of touching breast of a fellow student, I still say I didn’t, because I was racist & sexist, thanks to my father.
I was punished, but this girls “friends” decided it was not enough.
I was viciously assaulted, not only left for dead, but made infertile.
We don’t always grow up to inflict the same trauma on others.
I certainly didn’t.
In fact, I cringe every time I hear that a child’s innocence has been taken away.
When I say innocence, its not just physical, but emotional and mental too.
Some people will manipulate children so they do what they want, no matter how the child feels.
I abhor anyone who does not allow a child to be themselves and live a
Childhood and Adulthood.
I fully support extreme punishments to anyone who hurts a child.
My traumas should have caused me to turn into a criminal, but I haven’t
Because I’ve had supportive, law abiding friends in my life.
Honestly, I’m an Honest, Hard-Working, Trustworthy, Loyal, Mis-Understood, Accepting Human.
Yes, I’ve made mistakes, but who hasn’t?
