I'm sorry to hear about another male survivor was abused by a priest too. Did you get in touch with SNAP-Iowa? I tried to get help from the Chicago office, but I got more help from the Iowa office. I can get you the director's name if you would like it.

My ex brother in law when I was 11 until 12 for a period of seven months. It consisted of fondling, and he would pinch me. He forced me to touch him, as well. I told my family, and I never saw him again. My sister divorced him two years later. She remarried and has a 23 year old daughter. When she decided to remarry, I was pleasant yet distant to her second husband for obvious reasons.

An older boy at camp, a stranger who followed me around in his car, and a trusted and close friend in high school for the date rape that is my big issue.

My brother.

One thing this thread adds credence to is the myth of " stranger danger".

Most abuse is perpetrated by people we know / trust... n ot by random " lunatics" running around the streets. Nor are most perpetrators pedophiles. ( not discrediting or minimizing anybody abuse who suffered abuse by a stranger/ lunatic/ true pedophile)
