I once did a report on female sex offenders for a criminology class and while I don't remember the exact number, I remember that the overwhelming majority of offenders are male. I think it was around 98% but don't quote me on that.

I know that the majority of pedophiliacs are male, many are married and have sexual difficulties which leads them to feel inferior, so they seek out sexual situations in which they are the "masters." Many of them abuse alcohol and have underdeveloped social and sexual skills and have anxiety disorders.

I do know about 75% of the children who are victims of pedophilia are girls (Koss & Heslet, 1992).

the dangerous things about statistics is that they are not accurate.. and are based on the information collected, which means, in the case of sexual abuse, an overwhelming number of cases do not get reported.. ewspecially by male victoms.. shame plays a big factor i believe....so to accurately say the percentages is not possible.. I know based on the information collected that male perps have higher percentage over female... and female victoms have a higher percentage over male.. but there is a certain age range where boys do seem to have the higher percentage as victoms.. i am working on finding those stats for you..

btw.. i had two sexual abuse perps. one being a male family member, the other a female neighbor.. neither were reported...

take good care of yourself..

Thank you for your concern.. yes, i do see two therapist actually... sad statement of what abuse does to the psyche... it is difficult.. knowing that i will never be vindicated, or have the comfort that they at least have done recovery work themselves.. because i did not disclose... and now too much time has passed.. and new fears arise...sorry.. been a tough week.. i dont mean to sound cryptic..
but i am working at healing..

Thank you again for your concern.. i am slowly finding a comfortable niche here..

hsuzie,

abuse is NEVER fair...

I believe that next to a high % of low self worth, that feelings of INJUSTICE is the next largest fence to hurdle in abuse recovery.

It won't be fair. It's the even crueler injustice that happens after the abused confides...we think it will be properly handled, and in 99.99999999999% of the cases, never is. - put an infinite on that, and if there is a number between 9 and the next, make the 9's that next highest number-just trying to prove my point ; )

The perpetrators aren't given the same 'forced/highly recommended' recovery therapy that the abused are, and family, friends, lovers, etc can become distant, reluctant...so many problems can arise.

Isn't that what so many who are abused want? Is for the abusors to see and understand the WRONG and the shameful pain they've caused? To say they're sorry, and MEAN IT!?

You are so right.. and i believe, that the hurt is compounded when disclosing is handled insensitively or even ignored.. the healing process suffers if--it is even allowed to begin.. and seeing a perpetrator join a recovery program where they are proactive in their own healing, is in the long run more theraputic to a survivor than hearing the words "i am sorry" Thank you again for your support..
