Whatever form of violation, touching, fondling, peeping, oral, anal, vaginal intercourse; sexual abuse can leave lasting damage to the victim. I have heard all the rationalizations and justifications I can tolerate (such as "She really did like it", and "She had it coming, you know, the way she would walk around with her cleavage showing") There is no excuse. While women are more at risk to be sexually abused, the statistics are staggering. 1 out of every 3 women before the age of 18 is abused. I spell out the issues, and suggest many solutions to healing.
