[🗣️psst. That's low.]


Dwnld pamphlet:
🤔🤔Y don't men
report rape and/or sexual abuse?

As a society,
we must recognize barriers men face
when choosing whether
2 speak out about sexual assault.

Regents of Michigan published this

As w women survivors,
when men choose 2 come forward,
it is important male survivors,
be believed + supported by
those around them
+ allowed 2 make their own decisions
about what courses of action 2 take.

#Respect 🙌
⚖️🗒️U.S. Dept of Justice records

Average of >12,000 reported
sexual assaults of men annually,

+ predicts if unreported assaults R included,

actual number is approx 60,000👈😱

A male's age of greatest risk
of sexual assault
is age 4😱
🤔How do male survivors
react 2 sexual assault?

Anger, anxiety, fear, confusion,
self-blame, shame, depression
+ even suicidal thoughts
R all common reactions
4 some1 who has experienced
sexual assault.

Men, however,
R more likely than women
2 initially respond w anger,
Men will try 2 minimize 🐜
the importance
or severity of assault.

Male survivors more likely
2 use or abuse alcohol or other drugs 🍸💊
as a means 2 try + cope w experience
+ its after affects.🎭
Some men may have an erection 🚀
or may ejaculate during a sexual assault,
+ may later feel confused that
perhaps this means they enjoyed experience😱

Some perps deliberately manipulate victim 2 orgasm,
out of a desire 2 completely control victim😱😱

Due 2 a male's physiological response
of an erection or ejaculation,
Perps can continue manipulation
after assault 2 coerce survivor
away from reporting or seeking help.

💸💸Bet there aren't many
women survivors who had
an orgasm while an assault took place.
🤔What ideas in our society
prevent male survivors
from speaking out about
sexual assault + sexual abuse?

Because of how men are socialized
+ expected 2 behave in our society,
a male survivor of sexual assault
may feel as if he is not “a real man.”
Our society expects men
2 B in control, 💪
therefore survivor + others
may have difficulty accepting
image of a man
who has been victimized.🤔

Stigma | Fallacy 👈
of being abused as a child
leading 2 adult perps <=== NOT TRUE
effecting males in not speaking.

👥Homophobia causes men
who have experienced
male-on-male rape
2 fear telling their stories👻

Homophobia + gay stereotypes
may affect man’s decision 2 disclose.

Stereotypes on promiscuity of gay men
will often lead 2 victim blaming
from survivor’s support system.
Homophobia is a tool ⚒️
a perpetrator can use
+ perpetuate in order
2 maintain this power⚒️

By denying that males
can B sexually assaulted,
male survivors R made 2 feel
they R alone or abnormal.

I am no scholar nor psychologist.
Just 1 of 6🗣️

Never let it own U.
Own it!
At least 1 in 6 men
have been
sexually abused or assaulted.

Those who come forward R brave.
All survivors have a voice.🗣️

If U R a male survivor
of sexual assault,
seek support.

U R not alone!

Too many cases go unreported.
Healing is a process.

Sometimes people forget 2 B
compassionate w themselves.
Often times, it's easier 2 show
others then 2 themselves. 🤔

Male sexual assault + abuse is real.
