No-one will be in the least surprised that the email response I have now had from this body simply says they are sorry to hear that I have been a victim of a FA, but that IICSA is only mandated to look at the distress of abused children. The results are that (1) I feel like a really bad person for trespassing on the distress of children - I mean, aren't I an adult? Surely I can deal with it myself. (2) My distress is not a priority. (3) Clearly the motivation of IICSA is to assist in the punishment of perpetrators rather than in alleviating human distress. (4) Will there ever come a time when an inquiry into the actual suffering of PERSONS (child or adult) resulting from sexual abuse becomes paramount, and at least equally as important as the punishing of perpetrators?
