Reflections for Child Sex Abusers


  Photo courtesy of  Faisal Jawaid sex is?


where babies come from?

how the body parts work?

what sex is?

how to say no?  (There was a power differential)

who she or he could tell?

what would happen after her telling?

that his or her normal developmental stages were being stunted?

that family and friends might blame the victim and hold him or her  responsible for what was happening?

they might avoid sexual activity in the future even with appropriate sexual partners?

that they would carry shame for a long time or forever for your actions?

why you were molesting him or her?  Were you aware?

of the harm you were causing to his or her future ability to trust?

that this was not  a loving hug?

she was being valued as an object, not a person?

that she must carry the secret or face dire consequences?

that her psycho-social development was being sabotaged?

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
