Why didn’t I report it? Because when you are sexually assaulted by a relative, it’s terribly complicated. Initially I felt shocked, numb and powerless. Keep in mind, sexual assault is an act of violence, not sex. In addition, sexual assault is about power. It’s common for victims to feel helpless. —Dana Arcuri

We live in a society where people are often more offended by those who point out abuse than by the abuse itself. In other words, society does not view abuse as the problem; the problem is you pointing it out. Society’s basic mindset is that “IOf we don’t talk about abuse, then it’s not happening”.—Darius Cikanavicius
