What happened in the basement stays in the basement

I'm a grown man now but when I was very young a male relative took me into the basement several times a month and did things to me I can never and will never repeat to anyone ever. That person is in jail now thankfully he got caught doing the same thing to another kid and other crimes. So it's not like I have a duty to stop him from doing it to others by telling the world what he did to me decades ago. No one can ever know. I will be sure of it. I know it happens to others and I'd give just about anything to prevent it but its always going to happen. People may think I'm a coward for not telling what he did but like I said he is in prison for the rest of his life. I could have confessed but I doubt anyone would believe me. My family didn't protect me and took his side. They probably suspected anyway but since nobody ever did anything to protect me f*** them all.

  • It's your life, you don't have to do anything you don't want to in this situation. If you want, give that lil boy inside you an innocent loving hug and tell him he has nothing to be ashamed of, he did absolutely nothing wrong.

  • My mom used to dress me up. Short tight shorts. And look the other way when my father called me to sit on his lap. Then he would run his hands up and down my legs.

  • Sometimes best to leave things in the past.

  • Being anally raped happens to a lot of boys. Don't let the experience destroy you.

  • WTF who anally raped you? It does not happen to a lot of boys.

  • ^ Ignorance. You are the exact reason why this poster doesn't feel safe. Because people like you don't believe it happens. Why would you think it doesn't happen? It happens a lot more than you would think. It's just that not enough boys come forward to report their abuse. Look at the Catholic church for example, how many alter boys have been violated by the priests that they trust? The church just continues to cover stuff up. And the whole Sandusky thing.. over 10 victims of boys.
