I was abused between the ages of eight and sixteen by an older brother. I haven't spoken to him for almost a decade and would never reveal it to
anyone in my life, my parents are older and not in the greatest of health so wouldn't want to put more stress on them, maybe after they pass. I did
speak to the older Brother and asked why he did it and he gave me two BS excuses - He said: that he had the urges to do something, didn't have a
girlfriend or someone he could do it to and didn't think it was that big of a deal and He didn't know why but he got off on the domination and
control. He felt powerful doing what he did.
He never said he regretted it, apologised or said that he hated himself for doing it. And I do think that for part of it, it's about the control and
feeling being dominant. I couldn't imagine living my life knowing that I'd done something to someone, I'd hate myself even thinking about it and yes
it screwed me up but if I was honest and although I've yet to do so myself I'd go to the police. Him being on the lam is a mistake because he could
find another victim and abuse them.
I only wish my younger self had the guts to say something at the time. fifteen years is a long time to report something that is barely even reported
anymore. Name me the last guy you heard report being abused.
