SEX IS BIG: 16 DAYS OF SEX TALK(Day 4): WHAT IS SEXUAL ABUSE? (3)

Culled from our Instructional Manuals: S.A.F.E™ for YOU

TIP 69

“If you have been a victim of sexual abuse, you can heal.’ Josh MCDOWELL

It is my pleasure to be with you today my dear and precious young ones.

We are still on the subject matter of what constitutes Child Sexual Abuse.

Sex, you will agree with me is a major issue among young people today. Everyone around you appears to be committed to luring you into sex one way or the other. That is why, it is important we to demystify sex as we discuss it here.

When the Law Does Not Do Justice: please note that we have discovered from working with a lot of young people like you since 1997 that sexual abuse is deeper than how the law sees and define it.

Pay Attention: It is important you pay very serious attention to this for the sake of your PERSONAL SAFETY and SELF-PROTECTION.

Let’s take Sexual Abuse Further

Sexual abuse includes any act or omission of yours or your caregivers, which compromises, your sexuality. What do we mean by this? Sexual Abuse includes exposing yourself to inappropriate materials, which in most cases include songs with lewd and sexually suggestive contents.

The Implication: The implication of this is that your exposure to indecent materials distorts your perception about your sexuality and almost automatically prepares you for making yourself available for sexual relationship either with your peers or adults.

For example: today many of you listen and dance to songs, which are made for adults; I mean songs, which contain lewd and sexually suggestive words and lyrics. Please note that such practice is an abuse of your sexuality.

Here is the Point: Your sense of healthy sexuality as a young person comprises of two major factors:

  • Your understanding of the essence of your gender
  • How to take adequate and informed steps to preserve, protect and celebrate the essence of your gender.

This noble quest comes under serious but subtle attack when you are sexually abused through exposure to inappropriate materials.  Please note that you are not the only guilty party in this matter. In most cases, you are initiated into this unholy realm by your caregivers, who also do not know the implications of their actions or omission.

I believe you get my point. It may not be popular today but it is the truth of the matter straight from a heart, who truly love you.

The THINK Factor

I want us to really reason together on this matter. What do you really think about exposure to indecent material through music, movies and other means? Do you really think it constitutes abuse or you think it does not and we are just taking things too far? Take time to really reflect and share your thoughts in your S.A.F.E™ 4 YOU Personal Journal and share with your parents and other trusted caregivers and friends.
