Could Things I Did when We Were Young Affect My Sister Now?

From a 15 year old girl in the U.S.  When i was much younger, about 6 or 7, i did things with my sister that are considered sexual. She’s three years younger than me, so she was about 3 or 4 at the time. We were extremely sheltered as children (i didn’t even know the word “vagina” until 3rd/4th grade) so i had no way of knowing that this was sexual/harmful. So, describing the things i did: sometimes, when i was told to wake her up, i would sit lightly on her and maybe (? idk its fuzzy) grind on ...

Is Childhood Sexual Abuse Always Traumatic?

Hi, I’m wondering if it’s possible that a childhood trauma I experienced didn’t actually traumatize me. Here are some details for context: I was 7 and in an art program with my best friend and another girl (age 14ish). This older girl was nice to me; she played games and helped with art projects. As nice as she seemed, I think I was uncomfortable around her. One day when it was just me and her in the room, the other girl made me sit on her lap and touched me inappropriately. It didn’t last very ...

Molested by My Grandfather in a Dream

Last night I had a dream that I was molested by my grandfather. We were sat on my auntie’s bed, he was drunk and his face screwed up and his demeanor was very different to how he is in real life, but it was my grandfather. My grandfather and I are very close, he is everything to me and I grew up with my grandparents so they are more like my parents than grandparents. When I was approx 6-years-old, I was molested by my uncle on my grandfather’s side – my grandfather’s brother. They look a little ...

Why Do I Have Weird Thoughts?

From a young woman in Egypt: . I was a sensitive child since I was young. When I was something like 4/5 years old, I was “touched” by older male relatives inappropriately. This was a one-time incident and it didn’t happen again.  After a year or two, my body began developing and I was so insecure. With this began again what I -personally- perceive as sexual abuse (please correct me if I am wrong). This time it was my father. I must mention that he was a normal father. He didn’t hit me. However, ...

Am I a Pedophile?

I am an 18-year-old transgender male, and I’m afraid I might be a pedophile. I have never touched or acted towards a child in an inappropriate way, nor do I intend to. However, I have been aroused by cartoon images of children, and I sometimes fantasize about seeing a child in a sexual way. Sometimes I view cartoon images of children online. I’ve thought about it, and I wouldn’t want to touch a child inappropriately if I had a chance. It’s only in my fantasies that that might happen. Even then t...

My Mom Makes Me Uncomfortable

Just to make my situation a little more clear; I’m a 15-year-old girl and I was sexually abused from the ages 5 to 7 by a “friend” I had before we moved.

Now, despite me not being uncomfortable around people, my mom DOES make me very very uncomfortable and I’m not quite sure why. Anytime she touches me, whether she kisses me, h...
