I want to clarify

Hey @lizardcave!

I wanted to drop a note here. I tried to post another comment on chat but the thread got locked before I could.

I was not taking sides for or against OP.or minimizing what you went through. I have survived physical as well as psychological abuse. Many people don’t think about non-physical. That is all.

Please don’t apologize! My ex husband was (is, really) still emotionally and verbally abusive to our kids. I just didn’t like the comment that someone else made that wearing a costume was child abuse. Like you said – there are many kinds! In my head, the two of them didn’t line up. I wish I had have just kept quiet but my fingers moved faster than my brain could think… but thank you for reaching out!
