US TV chat show host ELLEN DeGENERES is set to shock fans by revealing she was molested by her late stepfather when she was a child, in a new magazine interview.
The lesbian comic tells the new issue of ALLURE magazine she was a victim of her stepdad's lust in 1975, while her mother BETTY was in hospital being treated for breast cancer.
DeGeneres, then a teenager, claims her guardian insisted on checking her for breast cancer lumps.
She recalls, "He made me let him feel my breasts. He made me lie down because he said he felt hers (mother's) when she was lying down."
After that incident, the comedienne's stepfather started to become violent when she refused his advances.
She adds, "He tried to break down the door to my bedroom... I had to kick a window out and escape and sleep in a hospital all night long."
Ellen DeGeneres says that when she has told people about her abuse before, they have told her that's why she is a lesbian. "But I was a lesbian way before that," she said. "My earliest memories are of being a lesbian
I just read that online. I'm deeply saddened and angered me to hear that. This is kinda veering away from the Ellen topic, but I do not understand how someone who knows what it feels like to be molested could abuse another human being. If your little blanket of innocence and security was violently pulled out from under you as a young child I would think that you would want to protect other children from the same fate. It's not right for ANYONE to be haunted by flashbacks, to feel like an alien inside of their own bodies, or to feel worthless and used up like a fucking ragdoll. FUCKING BASTARDS!!!
my life may not be something special, but its never been lived before.
