It depends, in what way?

I honestly would have more respect for them because of what they endure, and the fact that they survived such abuse.

I have someone very close to me that was abused as a child. Its a "other". You can't say it makes no difference, or you or they are unaffected - they are. It has changed and shaped them. It impacts life. It is part of who they are, and it part of your relationship.

@TBR: So true.

As a victim myself I have noticed people pity me.

@Shaa: I get a lot of disbelief because "that doesn't happen to men."
