I know that some people are trying to help or can just can't handle the CSA once it is revealed. I have had some strange things told to me and wondered if others have experienced the same.

Such as,
Your preacher can fix it.
How did your parents react when they found out?
Did you go to the police?
Are they (the perps) still alive?
Do you remember what they looked like?


These things used to really hurt me to hear, but I hope by sharing it will help others.
Thanks,
Randy

Wife: "Does this explain why you don't wear nicer clothes? Because you're trying to keep men from pursuing you?"

She means well, she really means well, and for the most part she does well. But... oy!

I have heard some great lines, but on the other side I have heard some wonderful words of support--I believe the supporters have outnumbered the negative side.

However the negative comments are hurtful and show the character of those who spoke the words--

"report it and let's get some money from the church"

"no one dissociates from abuse, it is not real"

"do you think I am stupid to believe you were abused"

"your father was the abuser not the priest"

Just a few of the hurtful comments I have heard--yes they are dumb but hurtful.
