Since I have found this board and have read some of the stories, I have been wondering how common (or uncommon) it is to have been abused by a female rather than a male? I feel kind of like the Lone Ranger in that my abuser was female - it is almost like people think it is less serious than if a man or boy abuses a young girl. For a long time I never even thought of what happened to me as abuse, but it clearly has wrought havoc in my life and my sexuality. I have various fears and phobias that I think stem from it. Worse yet, what was done to me was done under the guise of medical treatment - therefore it was (not in my mind, anyway) excusable. It was veiled abuse. How common is it for a woman to abuse a female child? you never hear about that on the evening news - I really feel alone in it sometimes. can anyone relate?
