    :thud: Please. No. The ultimate in exploitation would be a special regarding this.

    Any more sponsors pulling out?

    I wish that were true too, but I highly doubt it. Or if they did, Jim Bob would have made them turn the money over to him. Do you think any of the girls has a checking account or independent access to family money?

    I agree that the show should go away, pronto.

    Really, the kids in that family have been exploited enough already IMO. I can't imagine growing up with cameras following you around all the time. Very odd existence.

    Oh, Honey. I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this and that your family has not been able to come clean or do anything to support you. I hope that you have (or find) new people to be in your family. You deserve love and support!

    Or maybe he does and he's doing a clever psych thing so the wrath of the Duggars won't come down on him?

    That's something I have not thought about. His family certainly seemed to seek out the Duggars for their son.

    Thank you to those of you who shared their powerful stories of abuse. You are very brave and very gracious. :hug:

    What strikes me most about this situation is that at least for me, forgiveness doesnt preclude punishment and appropriate action. Josh can ask for forgiveness and his victims can forgive. But that doesnt mean he is absolved, imvho. There should be consequences-society demands it. The Duggars and their church and the ASP decided to act outside of the bounds of the law as I understand it. Truly, they dont really get to decide on Josh's punishment (or lack there of) because there were a number of people here who were mandatory reporters under the law, right? So it should have followed due process. But, it was covered up. This is incontrovertible.

    The positions they take fascinate me-it is OK for them to exploit their children and their family...it is OK for them to accept freebies and assistance to maintain their lifestyle. But they dont want to have to follow the law when it doesnt suit them. I dont get it.

    I wonder if the other children reading books saw what happened...

    More victims right THERE!

    The "witnesses" would have (one or more of the following):

    1.) Witnessed abusive behavior....

    2.) May have witnessed something they never have heard about before..(perverted sexual acts)

    3.) Could have been conflicted on whether to report to the parents...(were they "threatened by Josh in some way NOT to say anything?)

    this gets creepier and creepier...

    :what:

    My new theory is that the whole Seewald thing was an elaborate plot to save Jessa. ;-)

    Thanks all, for your kindness. It means so much to me. However, it was the brave song22, who inspired me to share my story in this thread after she did. I think she is a hero. *hugs* for everyone reading this.

    Very respectfully bolded by me. No, this is not the truth, your mind has not been destroyed, YOU have not been destroyed, because you are capable of seeing the truth. Yes, it is the most painful thing in the world to realize that someone who should have loved and protected you allowed to be gravely harmed, or did the harming, but YOU are not the broken one. The one(s) who did the hurting and the one(s) who covered it up and denied it are the broken ones, THEY are the ones who would rather walk with evil than shine the light on it. I honor your bravery in surviving, in telling the truth, and in protecting yourself as others should have protected you. Think about this: the fact that your parents did not love you enough to protect you, to believe you, does not make YOU unloveable or worthless, it makes them those things. This is the truth. This is the truth I paid for with my pain and my blood and I give it to you.
    With gentle love, from a fellow ptsd survivor.
