USENET Post (1992): Sexual Abuse and the Pillars of Society

I've always been infuriated by sexual abuse.  So this year has been an infuriating year.  Here's an essay I wrote about sexual abuse back in 1992, which, sadly, is as accurate today as it was then.

My Transvaginal Ultrasound

A few months ago, I blogged about my experience(s) around a medically necessary transvaginal ultrasound. 

The post continues to be one of the most frequent landing pages on my blog. It is *almost* more popular than my posts about Robert Traynham.

Why is it so popular? The searches are pretty sparse so in my imagination, I see women facing the need for this procedure seeking some answers. I confess that I googled it myself prior to the procedure, but only found rants about why Senators needed to probe my body.

I suppose there are women who seek comfort - women facing terrifying diagnosis or outcomes, from cancer to hysterectomies. To the unknown.

I don't have many answers myself, but I've been thankfully able to rule out the worst possible scenarios. So for now ... I'll just hope I can offer a measure of "I feel ya sister" to some other women out there waiting for this procedure to be over and life to move onward.
