MALE RAPE VICTIMS
Rape works both ways, help men get the support they need
The stereotypes of men being the sexual predator, always sexual, always wanting something holds back makes them hesitant to report any form of sexual victimization due to not being taken seriously. AND, if male survivors do report any act of sexual assualt laid upon them, they are questioned their masculinity and manhood - this needs to be changed.
Sexual Violence In The Military
The world has shut out the fact that men DO get sexual assualted, by males, females, family, friends, etc. They suffer from the same truama females do, and infact while they are off saving citizens of the world in military forces, they are still getting assualted, and get no treatment for that ontop of all the PTSD they already have. Studies have shown that men are being more sexually assualted in military forces over females, but hold back from reporting.
