RealityTV: Child Sexual Abuse

I don't get cable so I haven't watched Charm School, but Jezebel reports that on an episode of some reality TV show based on making fun of women for their crazy antics, one woman discloses Child Sexual Assault. Amazingly, LOTS of the other women end up sharing similar experiences. So women and children are systematically brutalized and used, develop coping mechanisms that society uses to mock them and we call it entertainment. Unfortunately, realizing the prevalence of Sexual Assault in a group of women may be the more reality than most shows of the genre.
