Female Child Sex AbusersPosted: May 8, 2014
Very difficult to watch, but extremely important in place of crass stereotypes. See also http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPDL78e8UAs and especially the following: http://www.female-offenders.com/Safehouse/2010/09/toptenmythsaboutfemalesexoffenders.html
Male victims of abuse, sexual crimes, or domestic violence should be treated with the same degree of sympathy as female victims, yet this is rarely the case (especially when the perpetrators are female), and nor do they receive much in the way of practical support. If you believe this is wrong, that all such things are equally bad when the victim is male and/or the perpetrator is female, however much such things are trivialised in popular culture and the mainstream media (with teenage male victims of female abuse portrayed as ‘getting lucky’, and female-to-male domestic violence treated as something to applaud as a supposed form of empowerment), then please do sign both of these petitions.
It has more recently become clearer to me just the extent to which male victims face ridicule, complete disbelief, hostility, and often attempts to shift the blame upon them. Please support extending full help and support in a gender-neutral fashion.
