tw child sexual assault
Anonymous asked: Is it possible to be traumatized from statutory rape?
Yes, yes, a thousand times YES. Children are not capable of informed consent. Older people - even the ones who get verbal consent or even have the younger person come on to them first - are the adults in the situation and are taking advantage of a vulnerable child/teen if they have sex. Kids/teens can get extremely fucked up from it, not only because it can be a very traumatic experience, but because adults often groom kids into it, which is a form of intense manipulation.
Sorry if this wasn’t very eloquent/feel free to add onto this.
Anonymous asked: for myself, as a survivor, i really do appreciate this blog. it makes me feel less alone thinking back to situations where i originally felt like no one in the world could ever understand. just an alternate perspective, everyone is entitled to how they feel though.
Love and support <3
leckerbisschen asked: I don't actually appreciate this blog at all. The way you approach it is all wrong. And you should tag it correctly, it's not #trigger #warning, it's #tw: Just an FYI, so people don't get their feelings hurt when they look at a blog who makes light of the traumatic thing they've been through. kthx
This isn’t making light of anything, its a place for people to talk about their daily struggles of being a survivor. It seems to be helpful to a lot of people. Its okay if it isn’t for you, though. Thank you for the tagging tip, I usually tag it “trigger warning” and “whatever the trigger is.”
Not being able to press charges because it was in his house and you have no evidence.
