As young boys, teenage boys or young men we’re taught to keep things inside, take it like a man, suck it up and shoulder on they always said. Well, you get the picture.
If you’re a man or young boy who’s been sexually victimized by a female family member or otherwise. I would really really like to hear from you. Our circumstance is so unique it’s been difficult to find support groups or resources geared specifically for people such as us.
You name and personal information will never be shared. Privacy is my utmost concern and anything shared will never, ever be published. I’m working on a ‘potential’ private forum in hopes of being able to connect us all regardless of distance.
The #metoo and #timesup movement is in full swing and I don’t know about you but I don’t want my voice, a valid voice, to get missed in this very visible time.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for identifying. And thank you for having the courage as you reclaim your voice. You matter, it wasn’t your fault and you deserve to be heard.
