Good morning … 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
