When I was 13 my stepfather punished me by touching me “down there”. He told me thats what bad girls get. After that it progressed to longer touches, he made me touch him as well. He wouldn’t punish me as he did my sisters because we, “had a relationship.” I didn’t feel comfortable and the abuse went on.
He threatened me. He told me he would hurt my mother (who was also physically abused by him).
I told her about it. She didn’t believe me. She told me I was just mad because he had grounded me.
But I didn’t hesitate. I told everyone I could. I KNEW it wasn’t ok.
Today I still struggle. It is hard.
