    I have read statistics that confirm this. Actually, CSA is a very unique crime because it is so universal, and there is really no relationship to socioeconomic status. You see higher incidents of physical abuse in poor households, but the rate of sexual abuse is pretty much the same across the board.

    And yes, there is a strong tie with fundamentalism, and patriarchal families.

    The lowest rate of CSA (as well as abuse in general) is in lesbian households. The child abuse rate in families led by lesbian mothers is, statistically, ZERO percent.

    And contrary to the tripe they spew, there is absolutely NO correlation between gay men and pedophilia. This site does a good job at breaking down that myth:
