As a little girl I was molested and raped my a distant family member for years. I never told because I was scared and ashamed. As I got older I was having a conversation with my brother about how just because this family member is buying him alcohol doesn't mean he is a cool/fun person. I told him that in my opinion this family member was a horrible person. My brother replies "didn't he rape you when you were little"? I asked him why he thought that and who had said that. He didn't want to answer and we never talked about it again. I have recently noticed that he and my sister are now friends with him on facebook. This man has already been to prison for raping another little girl. It is well known what kind of man he is.
My question is if my next move is something that I should do or not.
I want to talk to them and tell them that if they are friends with him and are going to keep in contact with him that I can no longer be family to them. My sister is 17 and brother 18. I am very hurt and confused about this. I know that maybe I am not thinking clearly.
*******SO I talked to my brother and sister. I told them what happened and that I felt it was important for them to know there is a man like that in their lives. They said they knew he had done something and that he isn't suppose to be around littler girls. I told my sister that meant anyone under the age of 18. So after this conversation I said that I just wanted her to know that if she is going to have him in her life I can no longer be in hers. Not to be harsh but I just couldn't handle it. Couldn't understand how they wouldn't feel the same way I would if someone molested either of them.Answer Question
