It is a very difficult topic. I don't know if it's just TSA that has failed to take this into account or if it's something that applies to today's society as a whole. Going to get a little crass here, and I don't mean to offend, but we go head-over-heels trying to by sympathetic to drug and alcohol abusers, and we break substance abuse down to a whole bunch of little subcategories. But sexual abuse is, in my view, one that is overlooked except in extreme cases. I don't know if it's because victims remain silent or if this is an awareness that is just starting to become more public. My guess is that the perception was that this was limited to certain stereotypical situations, and if a person didn't fit that situation then it was a non-issue. I'm guessing and, again, don't mean to offend. I'm just pointing out that it is certainly something that needs to be taken into account if a TSO is about to pat-down an abuse survivor.
