If a Guy Tells You He Was Sexually Abused…

Important . . . from The Good Men Project. A lot of boys and men are afraid to tell anyone about the abuse they have suffered for some or all of the reasons mentioned below. That should NEVER be the case. We need to educate people that boys and men are also survivors of abuse . . . and it makes them no less manly, no less straight, and not in any way deserving of shame or judgment.

If a Guy Tells You He Was Sexually Abused…

A great new viral infographic from Just Tell for Facebook is spreading the word about the ways in which male survivors of sexual abuse are often regarded. It also offers the information tat 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the age of 18 – a startling statistic.

The mission of JustTell is to empower youth to disclose sexual abuse to a trusted adult.
