Not having a good day at all. But today shows my strength too.
Passive aggressive trolling and harassment from a paedophile, is not what I want to deal with. And he will know that going to an abuse survivors page and commenting on Twitter about anything paedophile or sex offender related, is not okay, not appropriate. He is using his believed ‘rights’ to harass abuse survivors. With no empathy as they don’t. Sick.
Paedophilia is a mental disorder, which means they have sexual attraction to children. Yes I have a mental health disorder – but mine doesn’t create sick thoughts in my head about sexual interest in children. It is completely different.
He ‘claims’ to not act on it. Well of course he will say that. ‘If’ he has acted on it, he’s not likely to say it on a traceable social media account, is he. He certainly knows that contacting abuse survivors will be highly inappropriate, especially ones with PTSD. Was that intended? To cause distress? It’s certainly harassment.
But, despite my considerable distress, flashbacks, memories etc flooding my head, I still did what was needed. I phoned my husband to come home. Good self care. I responded back appropriately to this ‘person’, who doesn’t disclose his name or photo, funnily enough, but hides behind an anon profile. Blocked him and he’s blocked me. Good. I want nothing to do with people who have sexual attraction to children – which is a severe mental impairment of having thoughts and needs that if acted out are criminal and disgusting and are highly abusive to children and cause great harm and suffering and life long consequences and damage people lives.
If a person sits thinking about murdering people – they would be a severely sick person, because that is an act of dark, evil and sick thoughts. Paedophilia thoughts are no different.
I have reported the tweets to Twitter and the police. My husband is a police officer and will ensure this is dealt with.
I do stand up to people now, who have abusive, dark, intentions and act in ways that are abusive, regardless of their excuses, justifications, manipulation, lies, deceit.
And, I will continue to stand up to them – because it won’t be just me these people are hurting.
I won’t be apathetic about abuse. Ever.
