The one thing predators are better at than abusing children is making YOU believe they never would.
When victims come forward to disclose their abuse, their abusers do everything in their power to discredit them. They look for allies, support from the people in the victims life. The blame that roars at the time of the abuse, re-surfaces and re-victimises the victim.
This behaviour is a common tactic predators use to convince communities that they are innocent. Less than 5% of predators confess to their crimes & the small percentage of predators that do confess, do so because they were caught in the act.
We as a community can lessen the impact on survivors by believing and supporting the women/men that come forward to share their story.
