My ex-husband is a child molester. He touched my niece when she was 7-8 years old, and she confided in me around age 11. I did tell her parents, who decided not to press charges “because it would be too hard on her.” Personally I think that is a bullshit, cop out response because they just want to sweep it under the rug. I spoke to the police, but as I’m not a guardian or teacher, they can press no charges on my word.

I approached him about it and he straight faced admitted to it. I have emails from him where he admits to and attempts to justify it. I want to scream from every mountaintop here so that everyone can know what monster hides behind that friendly face, but I can’t. All I can do is tell my niece I’m sorry I brought him into her life, and that any help she needs, I will move heaven and earth to get it.

A friend of mine tried to kill himself multiple times, but to no avail – until the last attempt. A mutual friend of ours did the job with a bullet.

A very good friend of mine was sexually abused by her father. Her parents are still together, but I don’t think her mother knows about it. Anytime I see her parents, he still gives off these incredibly weird sexual vibes, it’s very unsettling.

I’m gay. Found a video on a gay for pay site. It was my younger married brother. Getting head from a fat guy.

A woman I dated, turned to me one day out of nowhere and said, “My brother used to rape me.” She went on to tell me that when she lived on her grandparent’s farm as a child. One of her older brothers insisted on sexual activities, she hid most of the time from him. She used to have a group of cats she took care of. One day he found her in the barn with some of the cats. He picked up one of the kittens, and twisted its neck shut, dropped it and looked at her. He did it to 2 more till she gave in.

After a long talk about how fucked up life can be, she was a new person. I am still haunted by it sometimes.
