Hallo Ohio, You are very right if only someone not only listened but Believed. This is so very common. I was abused from as young as a little toddler, as i grew older I tried to tell but the family members i told chose to ignore me and I was punished severly and hurled physical abuses like i was a troublemaker etc. other members of my family were abused as well.
After a while I just gave up, what was the point, no one believed....
At the same time I encourage anybody to never give up, if family members will not help you then go over their head and report them to a teacher, another adult.
Nobody should have to be someone elses sex object or punching bag.
I am speaking on behalf of a woman but no woman belongs to a man we belong to ourselves!!
Keep strong Ohio and always believe in yourself.
