When a man who has been through CSA states that his abuse is worse than mine I cringe. When a man who has been through ASA says his abuse is worse than the man who has experienced CSA I also cringe.
In the last couple of years I have cringed quite often.
I honestly do not know why anyone would categorize pain like that.
I have felt slighted by comments made in the last few years and have seen men who went through ASA slight those who experienced CSA.
I do not think either are necessary or should be tolerated. What one wants from others one must be willing to give. And above all else I would certainly think respect and understanding would be at the top of the list.
Perhaps I am as naive as some have told me.

Broad statements often miss their true mark.
