    Hi Trish. Thank you for sharing your story. Sadly, there are too many stories like this out there. But, do we have the answer? Can it be stopped? Let’s hope enough people speak out about their experiences with sexual abuse to make a difference.

      I think that as more of us stand up to tell our story we empower others to as well. Then young women can read, hear the stories of others and take action on that voice in their heads that tells them “this isn’t right”. I wish I had listened to that voice.

    Well done Trish. I felt like you were writing my story. I think a lot of broken love starved little girls had a Roger, or Rogers. He may have been violated, but that does not excuse him. I was, yet I have never taken advantage of a teenage boy. Thanks for putting it out there Trish. And Viga, thanks for all you do for all of us. Toni

      Thank you Toni. I certainly was not excusing his actions by pointing out that he to may have been violated. My intention was to highlight the fact that this is not a gender issue sexual violations happen to both males and females. So I was hoping someone would catch that in this story so I could highlight that issue as well.

    Thank you Trish for sharing
    Weather he was a me too or not he made a choice
    He needed the power and control
    His behaviour was predatory and he must have felt like king of the hill
    I sincerely hope he has changed but I doubt it

    Very brave of you to write your story Trish, thank you for sharing. Hopefully with so many people speaking up the future will be better for our kids and grandchildren. Unfortunately with our generation I don’t know a woman that has not been through something like this.
