I decided to create this thread based off the father's thread that avery started. It was a very interesting thread and even makes me wonder about everyones past abuse history even more, because it seems to me really common. So since avery's thread was specific about talking mainly about the father, this is overall abuse in general. So if to your knowledge, you know you have been abused sexually, physically or even verbally then please for the abuse options. No matter who caused the abuse, mother, father, sibling, neighbor, friend, partner, or anyone! As long as it happen sometime between you being born and 18 years old.
Well for me, I have no abuse at all, not even any unnatural verbal abuse. My parents are also still happily married. A very abnormal family for American family, specially for an infantilist! So that is what has made me so eager to find out the exact statistics of how many of us actually have been abused. Before voting please take a look at some definitions of type of abuse, and if this description, describes you in any way please vote for this option. This will also be a multiple choice poll.
Sexual- Any type of sexual contact at any age, from any person anything from inter course to un wanted touching.
Physical-Any type of physical harm done purposely, from any person.
Verbal Abuse- Now this is a little more tricky to judge. Scolding for doing something wrong is not real verbal abuse, specially if it is by parents. BUT! If it involves any type of name calling (vulgar or not), or demoralizing self esteem by negative comments. That would be considered verbal abuse.
