I would like to ask everyone here to be extra mindful of your responses to abuse. When someone comes forward about being abused … child abuse, domestic abuse, sexual assault, bullying… LISTEN without shaming, judging, blaming or criticizing ..Just because you watched a great movie and you became a fan, doesn’t mean those in power are incapable of abuse.Abuse is all about power and control. Period. Wake up please… The rate of abuse in the country is extremely high. Just in custody cases alone, 58,000 children are legally trafficked by way of family courts annually. Victim shaming and blaming needs to stop if we are to make a better world. The victims are NOT to blame. The Bill Crosby, Sandusky, Kevin Spacy, Weinstein, of the world are. ..And we sit and wonder why we have so much violence… one of the highest rates in the world. I applaud every victim who has come forward to speak up in hopes the abuse will end. The last thing a victim is seeking is Fame. when a victim comes forward like any whistleblower, many times they are re-victimized by the system and public. Some end up dead.Take your blinders off and fill your heart with compassion for those traumatized by abusers especially by those in a position of power and notoriety.As a survivor of abuse, I learned the only way for abuse to end is by the community coming together and rallying in support of the victim and not the perpetrator. Be a part of the solution and not a part of the problem, and I promise you in time we will have a better world with less violence including mass murders and gun violence.
