Honestly I donít know which makes me sicker, the abusers or all those who make excuses for them. I was sexually abused at age 16 and itís because of attitudes like those of the Fox news commentators that Iíve always minimized what I went through and questioned even whether it was abuse for so long. Mind you my perp was a man so theyíd probably have a completely different take on that, just as much as they do when the perpetrator is an unattractive female, which shows just how much they donít get it. People with attitudes like this fail to understand that minor teenagers are still children who arenít there for the taking by any adult only wishing to gratify themselves at a young personís expense, especially when one is in a position of authority that requires them to put the kidís interests first.
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And weíll change the world.
