Unfortunately I don't believe it will ever happen as long as men and women don't /refuse to control their urges.

I'm sorry you also went through this. 
Decades ago I was told if you look down your block, every third house will have a victim of sexual assault.


 

@AlsaceGal It's surprisingly prevalent.  I am so sorry you experienced the same.

 

That stat you cited sounds about right. When will we as a species learn to honor and care for 50% of the population?



@Squirrels Are Trash ... I'm so sorry you went through this too... as well as @AlsaceGal ... I'm 75 but remember that summer when l was about 8 or 9. I can still picture the whole thing... People say it was much safer back in the 50s growing up. Not in my small town. I'd like to see a list from every town and city in our country to see how many of us were s**ually abused. That would be One. Long. List. Sending love to all of us. ❤️

Sunnyvale, California, abuse started in 1953, through 1954 and 1955.

I was 2 when it started. I remember it clearly.

Sexual assault is a crime of control and violence, not of "urges"

Re: Russell Brand being Accused of Assault!

@AlsaceGal ... He also tried to hang my brother from a tree who he supposedly was friends with. My mother saw out the window and ran outside and caught him just in time.  ...but my parents never did anything about it !! Brother was 5 years older than me. They didn't know about me until years later. What do we do to help us ?????

Mine wasn't a relative, it was the adult son of a woman who baby sat us as my dear mother worked, and yes, she knew what her son was doing to me. It happened to me every morning.

when you're young there isn't anything we can do to protect us.
