Our thanks to Stu for this. The start of the piece:
Victims of female child sexual abusers face “enormous stigma and shame”, according to police and charities.
Figures from BBC Radio 4’s File on 4 show there were over 10,400 reports of this type of abuse from 2015 to 2019 – equivalent to an average of 40 a week.
Experts say there is still a “lack of understanding” about the extent of such abuse.
The UK government said it would not allow “any safe space for sex offenders to operate – male or female”.
Between 2015 and 2019, the numbers of reported cases of female-perpetrated child sexual abuse to police in England and Wales rose from 1,249 to 2,297 – an increase of 84%.
Can anyone believe that the increase in reporting is a reflection of increase in perpetration? Surely not. The reason that female-perpetrated sex abuse of children (and adults, for that matter) remains a taboo and there’s a “lack of understanding” of it is that successive governments have kowtowed to feminists to make it so.
You have to scroll well down the article before coming to these lines:
Katherine Cox, services manager with male and non-binary victim support charity Survivors UK, said she believes the File on 4 figures did not reflect an increase in abuse, but an increase in people feeling able to report to the authorities.
However, she added, far too many victims “believe they won’t be believed”.
“The prosecution rates are really low for any survivor,” Ms Cox said.
“I think for a male survivor of female perpetrated abuse, the reality of getting a conviction is usually going to be extremely low.” [The two female “journalists” say nothing on why this might be the case, presumably not the case for female survivors.]…
Survivors UK have a waiting list of 10 months for its counselling services…
File on 4’s data shows the gender split between male and female victims is roughly half.
The longest section (pp. 31-7) in our 2015 general election manifesto was on sexual abuse of men and children by women. On p.31 we referenced Michele Elliot’s book Female Sexual Abuse of Children: The Ultimate Taboo (1993).
