Should female minors (under 18) be given SSI, or some other state support for their remaining lives because they were abducted or used for sex in any way?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21352 points ) May 12th, 2014

While reading through this thread here, I got to thinking, the pundits (at least in the US) seem to indicate whenever a minor (under 18 as a constant for this question) is kidnapped, abducted, or simply used for sex by a coach or family member by guile and deception, they become psychological train wrecks and damage goods, unable to live out a normal life; that they are forever scared. If that is true and they are going to suffer lifelong PTSD, or some other mental disorder because they were introduced to sex before being 18 years of age, (by violence, or not, by force or by plain trickery notwithstanding), shouldn’t they be given lifetime government aid and section 8 housing?

What about the male minors who were abducted or used for sex in any way?

Do you realize the government aid is like 800 bucks a month and minimal help with mental health?

@Dan_Lyons What about the male minors who were abducted or used for sex in any way?
That is a good question. From what I can glean from the pundits and the media unless the young nipper’s bones got jumped by an older male, they recovered better (true or not), if it were some hot neighbor lady or female school teacher they were not as messed up as the girls. It is a good question though.

@johnpowell Do you realize the government aid is like 800 bucks a month and minimal help with mental health?
That is where the some other type of aid comes in, something like ”girl got sexed” aid, etc. with more cash benefits, psych care, and housing.

Any numbers on what these additions benefits are? Damn near everything in the thread you linked to has been deleted.

Show me the numbers on these sexually assaulted welfare queens.

@johnpowell I don’t know if there are any. I can logically guess some sexual assaulted minors are now on welfare, but I am not simply speaking welfare, but maybe something new. After all, if they are to be considered disabled by their mental state being made spaghetti by the sexual contact they had with adults before 18, then they should be in the same category as VN Vets. How many are receiving SSI or welfare now, if any, it is anyone’s guess.
