I get the sense that you are angry and upset that the ministry knows about you and your story. I am going to be honest with you and let you know that yes, we did have to report the sexual activity between you and this older man. Being that you are considered below the age of consent this man’s involvement with you is considered abuse, and we have a legal responsibility to report all abuse.
We truly value your voice here, and want to continue being a place of support for you.
I’m sorry that we weren’t able to explain this to you directly, and would encourage you to access the live Chat (evenings 6-11pm PST) which may be a more appropriate avenue for these conversations. If you want to discuss this policy I encourage you to contact staff at [email protected]
I hope that you will continue to speak with us here. We care about you and your safety, and hope you understand that we have a legal responsibility to report abuse of this nature.
Here for you,
