(Right Country) – Oprah is part of this country’s elite and this country’s elite are full of pedophiles and perverts. She is no exception. The famous talk show host said that if a child molester is “any good” their victims won’t even know they’re being molested. It will “feel good” to children, Oprah claimed in a segment of one of her special’s on sexual abuse in 2017.
This is a downright disgusting thing to assert about child molestation. It’s doubtful that any victims of childhood molestation look back and think about how “good” it felt. Since Oprah made the comments in 2017 there was backlash and Oprah was forced to acknowledge such.
Here’s what Oprah’s website says in reference to the disturbing comments and one viewers perspective:
One comment Oprah made during her interview with four child predators touched a nerve with some viewers. During the discussion, Oprah said if an abuser does his or her job well, the abuse feels good. This can add to a victim’s feelings of shame and confusion.
A survivor of sexual abuse, Diane, calls in to share a differing viewpoint, based on her own violent childhood. “I just wanted to make people aware that it’s not always that you’re going to feel good or get pleasure from [sexual abuse]. A lot of times, it’s fear and intimidation. It’s abuse,” she says. “It’s the fear of being beat again. It’s the abuser using abuse to get you to do what they want.”
Diane says it never felt good from the first time she was raped at 9 years old until the abuse stopped just before her 13th birthday. “There was violence throughout my childhood,” she says. “He abused us enough that, when he said he was going to do something, we believed it.”
Diane says she and her sister, who was abused by the same man, were intimidated into keeping their terrible secret. “When he said he would kill us, we believed him,” she says.
Oprah says she understands where survivors like Diane are coming from. “There are many situations where that happens,” she says. “And as I’ve said before on this show, I’m speaking broadly and in, of course, general terms.”
Maybe Diane’s abuser was simply just not doing it “right.” Child molestation is supposed to “feel good” to children, apparently, not intimidate them or scare them. Diane just had a really lousy abuser.
Asserting that sexual abuse “feels good” to young children is just another attempt at normalizing it. How can it be that harmful, after all, if it feels good. Convincing young children that sexual abuse, when done “right,” should feel good is an appalling and disgusting way to desensitize children to abuse.
Since Oprah launched the series meant to bring awareness to sexual abuse she has spoken with numerous victims and even convicted child molesters. One of these child molesters explained when he was 10 or 11 he was groomed and subsequently molested and then grew up to then follow in those same footsteps.
Grooming is a psychologically damaging process to any child and it’s the very reason why so many victims of child sexual abuse end up abusing children when they grow up. That’s exactly why it’s so dangerous to put out ideas like when child molesting is done “right” it “feels good.”
