This April 29, 2014 article on the Slate.com website talks about an issue often ignored by our society. The issue is about the males who are raped and how the males who experience this either don’t report being raped, or feel they can’t say anything because of how society expects views the issue of rape and who the perpetrator and victim typically is. I have always been aware that males could be victims of sexual assault, but I was not aware of the rate that it occurred. this article clarified that for me, and also educated me about some eye opening information about who the perpetrator of the crime often is when males are raped, honestly I was surprised when I read the answer to that, it wasn’t what I was expecting.
*** Note … this article doesn’t portray sexual acts, but offers educational insight into statistics and information about who the victims and perpetrators are. If you have been sexually assaulted I would advise caution when reading this, because it is possible for articles about assault to trigger memories even if the article doesn’t convey the specifics of the crime. I ask that you take care of yourself and if you feel this could be a trigger for you, please skip reading it ****
