About Abuse and Us

I am the FudgeQueen. I would prefer to be known just as that for now, till we are better acquainted. This blog will focus on providing consistent updates and informative essays on Child Sexual Abuse.

My group is called Elaan. We have been around since July 2004. We will be a registered NGO by January 2006. Till then the movement to spread awareness on Child Sexual Abuse is being spearheaded by me. Its tough but relevant.

What IS Child Sexual Abuse and why bother crying yourself hoarse over it when it's about something that happened in the past ?

That's a question that i have been asked by all and sundry. After tiring myself out with diplomatic responses, i feel that this, i.e. today, is the right time to set the record straight.

I have had personal experiences with facing abuse, and have been through hell with dealing with the aftermath of it. I see myself as a living example of a survivor who, after (finally) receiving support and love, is still not completely over it.

The aftermath is what is even more dangerous than the abuse itself.

As for the "what is", you're not stupid. You have the internet. Read This, and This too.

And if you havent had enough, there's 1 , 2 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 8 , 9 , 10 .

there are laws in certain countries that allow for chemical castration for sex offenders. somehow, i feel that although cutting off someone's genatilia as a lesson to them for the hell that they put someone through, sounds like an ideal way to get justice, it is not.

what needs to be implemented is a process that encourages people to be educated and vigilant with regard to themselves and the people around them.

a trust factor between people, for instance, children and parents, must be established for clear,unhindered communication.

these things might sound trivial, but they go a long way.

Nice place you've got here. Lets just hope that the fire catches on, and you're able to make a difference.

I like the fact that you're taking a civilized approach of spreading knowledge and information rather than a vengeful one of pushing for harder punishments for sex offenders (which IMO solves nothing as far as the victims are concerned).

The internet is a great place to spread your goals, best of luck to you. Will keep visiting, writing and helping in my own little way.

Cheers,
Nish
