From the time I was very little my own father was a sexual predator in my life and my sister. I am sure my mother and my step mother knew how he was and just buried their heads in the sand. I wonder how many mothers just keep silent when they know they are married to a monster. Somehow I think this is all too common in our world.
How many fathers, uncles, brothers, cousins, etc. are getting away with this horrific behavior and families just don’t want to expose it.
If your own mother doesn’t stop this from happening to you, how can you grow up thinking that anyone else is going to protect you. You just accept that this is the way things are.
My father is still living, as far as I know, and lived his whole life without being punished for his awful behavior towards all the women in his life.
