Broken Boys Become Broken Men

Two women sexually abused me. I was molested by a female babysitter and raped by an adult female neighbor.


As with all sexual predators, both women sensed vulnerability and went in for the kill.


Like countless others, the impact of sexual abuse has inflicted unspeakable and lasting damage upon every strand of my being. No one protected, reached out a hand, nor said what happened was wrong.


Sexual abuse of a boy perpetrated by a woman is globally viewed to be less severe or damaging than when a perpetrator is a man or the victim a girl.


This barbarically antiquated thinking serves only to perpetuate abuse, leaving victims untreated, sending confused, suicidal, alcoholic young men out into the world who are wholly incapable of processing complex emotions to love or be loved in return. Editorial Post
