One of my readers has made me realize there may be many female survivors of child sexual abuse who won’t take action about Lena Dunham merely because she is a woman.
I don’t know about you, but I am tired of women getting away with sex crimes because of their female anatomy.
I was told by the woman who read my Blog that Lena Dunham was most likely a victim too, and she “needs help.”
Lena does not want help, she does not think she needs help, and she is supported by everyone who defends her and who allows her to continue in what she does because they give her a pat on the behind, or more money for her show on HBO, or they promote her book with a favorable review. And she is even defended by people who work with child abuse victims like the woman who instigated today’s article.
Nearly EVERY man who has ever raped or sexually abused a child was once a victim himself and needs help.
It is hypocritical and disingenuous to excuse Lena because she is a woman, but condemn men and older teenage boys who sexually abuse children.
All male perpetrators need help, and most were “a victim too.”
In spite of the fact that male and female perpetrators need help, people need to choose to defend the innocence of children………not the perpetrator.
Children who were sexually abused by a woman or teenage girl, want to be HEARD. Adult survivors of sexual abuse perpetrated by a female want to be heard. They don’t want, or need, anyone defending their victimizer because she happens to have different body parts than a man.
In addition, once a victim turns around and sexually violates another child, they are no longer a victim; they have crossed over to perpetrator.
Please read my article on why sexual abuse by a woman is often more devastating on the victim than when a man does it.
