I just want to prove how often molestation, rape and more happens.  People are not aware of how often it happens.  Just because there are no registered sex offenders in your area, does not mean there isnt sex offenders in your area.  It just means they were not caught.  I do not think that people really understand how often and how close to home it can be.  Most times people are molested and are forced to kept quiet and sweep it under the rug.  So this poll is to prove how many people it can happen to, and how often it happens.If you have been molested, or know someone that has, please post here and explain if it was kept quiet, if they even did anything about it.  I would like to know.  Please post anon if you have to.  I am not here to judge.

I know several people who have been molested by family members, and have a friend who was raped during a home invasion by a stranger.

I was molested by an older cousin. Not only was it swept under the rug, but he blamed it on ME and I got punished for it. I was five. He continued to do it with impunity until I was fifteen. I was also raped in the past by a handful of ex's.

I only know one woman that was not molested as a child.  All of them, except me, were molested by relatives or friends of the family.

Wow.. thank you all for all the comments and poll.  It isnt much yet, but it just shows how often it happens.  This made me cry.  I did not want to be right, but I knew I was.  :(  I cannot believe how this happens so often and most of the time they get away with it.  Something really needs to be done about this!

My half brother and half sister were molested for years by their stepdad.  My sister was removed from the home when she was 12 and told, but my brother kept quiet until jsut a few years ago.  They're both in their forties now. He was never prosecuted, in fact, their 'mother' stayed with him until they were their late 20s.  There's so much more to the story...he destroyed two lives
