Child abuse is something that makes a lot of people uncomfortable.
Child-on-child sexual abuse (CoCSA) damn right cringes people the hell out.
I’m here to talk about both, if not now, then for a short time soon.
What amazes me is that it’s not widely talked about and victims of (CoCSA) are shamed into silence about it or are mistakenly blamed for the sexual assault they encountered as a small child. Like, “no, that wasn’t sexual abuse! That was you exploring your sexuality, you little deviant!”
But guess what?
If you’ve had to suffer through unwanted sexual contact as a child from another child, that is CoCSA. That experience shouldn’t be explained away, it shouldn’t be brushed under the rug nor should it be minimilised.
Your experience is very real, incredibly valid and shouldn’t be silenced because it makes people uncomfortable. That’s not fair on you or your experience.
I’m sick and tired of people looking down on victims of CoCSA because they can’t wrap it around their own minds how one child can violate another in such a way, but holy hell does it happen. And it happens in the thousands.
One way or another, that experience can very well effect your functioning.
I know because it has effected mine. And I hate it. Absolutely hate it with a passion and I wish I never had to go through that but I did.
