Jump to new posts How the MeToo Trend Made Me Feel Lonely by rileyfinn @ 25 minutes 25 seconds ago

Spoke on the phone tonight with a very well-meaning friend. We were talking about the social media hashtag of #metoo. She didn't include men in her post and didn't understand why men would feel left out. She knows about my abuse, and so I talked a

I've looked to see some of my older posts and feel pretty bad about how I responded to guys who were just trying to comprehend what I was trying to communicate and be supportive. If any of the guys are still around here I just want them to understa

I simply said on someone's page that I was so sorry and that I had a lot of empathy as one who had experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. Luckily those responding were favorable. I don't normally talk about that experience and I never compla

Sorry this happened to you today, Andy. Thanks for being brave enough to make the case, even if others didn't receive it well. As I said before, this may not be the best time to insert ourselves into the current dialog, since it is about Weinstein

No, I think it could potentially help other's from being victimized. That said, be prepared that the pastor may or may not take your concerns as seriously as you do. Since your grandfather has already beat a conviction, and has apparently never be

Found out recently that not only is my rapist grandfather still alive, he's on a board of elders at a church in his area. That man is a serial child molester. We reported him in the 80s, they gave him a polygraph test and he passed... So they dropped

The last thing I would want to do is invalidate the suffering that females have endured as well. It is just as important that they be recognized on social media or otherwise as survivors of sexual abuse. With that, someone I know posted something o

I was googling a topic related to paedophilia and was most surprised by Google's automatic suggestions. If I write the letters "paedoph" in the search box, Google suggests "paedophryne amauensis" (which happens to be a frog from N

I feel more comfortable discussing csa with women -- my therapist, where I had the choice of a husband/wife couple and chose the wife; and a female friend who is also a survivor. In fact I've only ever talked about it with one male, my brother, and a

Good point. I would say, in this sense, that porn addiction is similar to love/relationship addiction, dependency, codependency... it all goes together. In love/relationship addiction, we're also self-harming (getting/staying with those who are no

Maybe this is a stupid thing to say here, but the cop in me wants to suggest that maybe its worth looking into whether this is legal or not. I know for a fact it's not where we live. Just a thought.
