Sexual Abuse is often part of parental alienation because it is used as a way to control children of all ages because it elicits fear, violence and intimidation.
For all those who have been sexually abused, including my son, who I and others believe WAS SEXUALLY ABUSED at CATE SCHOOL (with the knowledge and consent of his father and his current wife) along with being forced to sleep outside and live in those horrible conditions as the photographs posted a few days ago show; this information should help you which is from an article I recently read.
The general consensus from government and other statistics is that 1 in 6 men will have some type of sexual abuse in their lifetime. Most often the abuse has come from a close friend or family member which is often accompanied with ongoing interaction and PRESSURE to keep it a secret.
***Boys and men who have been sexually abused and forced to remain silent, BEGIN TO QUESTION THEIR SEXUALITY. They often question if they are gay or if they wanted the encounter(s). If the abuse is from a woman the boys are made to believe they are more “manly” or are “lucky to have a head start.”
But, the reality is that the emotional side of sexual abuse leads to all types of problems like: a false sense of masculinity, lack of ability to have real and lasting intimacy and experience love, overcompensating, and extreme PERSONAL GUILT AND SHAME, even though NONE OF THIS WAS THEIR FAULT. These are all common results of a sexual trauma.
Just like many do not want to believe the plethora of evidence I have showing all those involved in creating and perpetuating parental alienation; many do not want to believe those who are brave enough to talk about their sexual abuse.
So, if you have been sexually abused or abused in any way; please CONFIDENTALLY seek help with a reputable therapist and make sure they will keep your sessions confidential from everyone. Also, do not tell anyone you are going.
I hope this is helpful. Remember, those who are wise seek help and should be very proud for taking care of themselves. It is important to take care of yourself emotionally as well as physically.
As always, none of this is legal or any other advice; just based on my knowledge and experiences.
