I did not have an "adoptive" dad but, I had a step-dad who was just like the man in this current article. I have tried not to "post" about the wrongs done to me but, this current event was so compelling. I suffered from addiction, sexual confusion, self-abuse and very low self-esteem just like the survivor/victim in this article. This "stuff" messes up - big time - a persons well-being, even for men. The survivor in this story "suffered" from the affects of the abuse - addiction, self-abuse, and low self-esteem BUT underneath it all - IS THIS AWFUL, ICKY, STUFF.

This story speaks to the unthinkable but, the very real trauma of sexual abuse decades ago.
