25 survivors of Rape Speak Out

I found this awesome post about 25 Male Survivors of Rape speaking out about their abuse. I think this is a really important post to be going around social media. We tend to classify sexual assault as a women’s issue. While women are predominately the victims of sexual assault and rape, men are also a common victim in this problem. Rape and sexual assault are crimes of control and power┬ánot crimes about getting sex. These crimes are usually committed by people they know. Until we question the reasons why males (and sometimes females) feel a need to dominate and control over people through physical domination, we will not solve the problem of sexual assault for any gender.

What do you think?
