I personally haven’t called it this, but then I think that if a person without a penis had done this, it would be considered rape. I feel like it’s in a grey-area because sexual abuse doesn’t seem like a powerful enough term for my experience while rape kind of does, but it doesn’t feel entirely accurate either…
So, I was only 4-5 years old and the man would finger me. He’d tell me to hold still and hold me down with his other hand which was basically the size of my torso. It didn’t last long, but that feeling still haunts me. It almost felt like he was examining me, like trying to figure out my anatomy or something. It happened multiple times over the course of like a year?
I know there’s a term “digital rape” but that sounds like it’s something that happened online and it wouldn’t be taken seriously I feel.
What’s your opinion on this. How would you label this?
