That's what we designed this whole site for. Certainly, if any SGs feel the need to come here and chew our heads off because of what they suffered partially due to our involvement, they have every right. However, we are also victims in varying degrees and need our space to be able to sort out our baggage and get our healing too. They need to understand that also. Many of us did not do such horrendous things but rather tried to protect them and keep them from harm, as much as we understood or were able. I remember one mother going on the war path because her children ended up with bruises due to a brother's spanking. She said it was child abuse and he had to stop. Of course, she had other problems that they used as an excuse to send her to Australia for "retraining" and she had to leave ALL her children behind with her husband. I felt soooo sorry for her. So, there may not have been a physical gun or no one broke our arms (that is actually quite offensive to me) but they had other ways to make sure we complied with the heirarchy.
