Posted in Sexual Abuse

Goodmenproject.com 11/26/2014

"... I’m sick of adults abusing children, and I’m sick of the way the media portrays male survivors of abuse as willing accomplices or “lucky boys” when the perpetrator is a female.

How Colleges Deal With Rape Claims

Posted in Sexual Abuse

Nytimes.com 11/26/2014

"... Why should the manner in which an allegation of rape is handled depend on whether or not it occurred on a college campus?
