section specifically for incest

10 posts in this topic

Just a suggestion to have a section specifically for incest. It is sexual abuse yes... but it comes with it's own set of challenges. It would be nice to have a place to discuss those specific challenges

thanks

In the types of sexual assault forum there are threads devoted to struggles concerning incest. Have you checked out that forum? It might be helpful to you.

I would also like to have an incest section,

It soo much upsets me that when I do internet research on Incest, it´s all porn that comes up, Incest really does turn on a lot of men in the world, so sick, so depressing.

Yes i've checked out the threads, but theres so much more about incest that's different from other types of sexual abuse. If you speak up you're calling out a family member. This changes the family dynamic and so many other things that are different from other survivors. I'm not saying that either are easy to deal with, but they are very different in some ways.

Hi Sleeping1,

You are right - incest certainly has its own dynamic that other types of sexual violence might not have. We put a huge amount of consideration into creating more sub-forums to make sure there is enough demand for them - it's a horrible feeling to post something so difficult on the board only to receive few to no replies... just because there aren't enough people using that sub-forum! You are welcome to post in the Relationships forum where you will find other members struggling with family dynamics following incest and other types of sexual violence - you could even start your own thread to discuss the effects of incest on family, and if there is enough ongoing interest in the thread we can judge how necessary it is to have a separate forum for this type of abuse.

Take gentle care,

Kate

There's a new forum now www.siameeting.freeforums.org that's specifically for Incest survivors.

It looks like a very new small group at the present time.

I think that at this stage if l had anything l would be still posting here as so few members means few responses.

Good Luck to those settling up the site.

Every site has to start somewhere small.
