    • I totally agree. Nor any other kind of abused child. Nor abused adult, but children are especially vulnerable due to the power differential and lack of knowledge. Hopefully no one would say “she deserved it” of a sexually abused child, but as the author notes, it’s easy for cases of reports of even extreme physical abuse of children to be brushed aside as “he or she probably deserved it.” In both situations, however, the child may not be believed but punished again for lying and pressured to recant.
