    If this is all true, she's a wonderfully strong young woman. I pray her great success.

    Re: Beauty Guru Confronts her Rapist Online

    Assuming that it's true, am I the only person that really isn't surprised by the turn of events?

    The guy is her dad. Yes, he's a terrible human being, and he should be in jail for the rest of his life if he raped his daughter as a child, but she's still his biological child. I don't find it that unusual that he's still interested in her life and that he subscribed to her youtube channel to keep up to date on what she's doing.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Incest like this is unforgivable. The only thing this man can do now to enhance this woman's life is to stay the hell away from her.

    I know what you mean -- this is so ugly, most adults (family, prosecutors, judges, juries) would strongly prefer the victim remain silent, so they don't have to face what happened. And many people failed this woman -- all her teachers, all her neighbors, all her extended family -- anyone who should have suspected and did nothing to try and help.

    I had a social worker tell me once that if you put any ten women in a room, one is a survivor of rape, one is a survivor of domestic violence and one is an incest survivor. ANY ten women -- even ten US Senators. I hate to think that this is so common, but I am fully aware of the power of denial and the desire for silence from victims, so it's possible.

    There aren't many little kids in my immediate orbit, but for some of you reading this, there could be. Read about the symptoms a child victim of sexual abuse will exhibit, and if you see such behavior, speak up.

    I couldn't find a web site that seemed reliable for this purpose, so I'm going to PM Captain Courtesy and ask him to recommend one.

    The bottom line is, any adult in this woman's orbit as she was growing up could have saved her this agony (at least part of it), and blessed her with the justice she deserved. ALL of us should be courageous enough to be the hero for a child we suspect may be suffering in this way.

    What about this situation gives you the impression he cares about enhancing her life? I understand that it's hurtful to the woman that he did it, I'm just not surprised. He was a ****ty abusive dad, but he's still her dad, and at some level most likely still cares about her in some way. I've seen that happen before.

    i'm sure he cares, about getting his next fix, has he been castrated yet?

    only silver lining of this story is she has guns now. so she'll never be a victim, to him, or to anyone, ever again.

    I couldn't make it past 1:30. I can't comprehend the depravity one would have to have to do such a thing nor the agony she must feel. Simply hearing about it was too much for me to take.

    Molten, if you know a perp who committed incest IRL and find that man's behavior towards his now-adult victim "understandable", you need a severe wake up call.

    Incest has to be the single most corrosive, soul-destroying betrayal any child can experience.

    I've met women and men who have been sexually assaulted by their family. Often fear and shame prevent them from coming forward. When they do find the courage they are met with judgement and doubt. Everyone survives in their own way. On a related note.

    It is interesting how rape runs in generational cycles. It could be posed that her father raped her because he himself was raped, and she will rape her child (especially if male child) because she was raped by her father.
