Suppressed Abuse

bandbacktogether:

At the ripe old age of 67 I have been made aware that I was sexually abused by my father.

Having a hard time dealing with this truth, still do not want to face this even though I know it is true.

Would like to talk to others with a similar story.

Hi there, would love to talk with you. Send me a message any time.

This needs more notes.

no one seems to care if they are guys 

reminder that rape and sexual abuse happens to everyone, not just girls

reminder that rape and sexual abuse needs to be acknowledged no matter a person’s gender and “no one seems to care if they are guys” is a typical antifeminist theory that is disproven by the fact that this photo set has 100,000+ notes alone

The concept of a woman forcing a man into a sex act can seem paradoxical, if not physiologically impossible. The assumption is that guys are always in the mood and an arousal constitutes consent; but there’s a uniquely afflicted class of male victims who would strongly disagree. Lost in a cultural blind spot, they have been left to suffer in silence without resources and often without the empathy of family or friends.
