    I know that society, media and the entertainment industry frames sexual abuse as men = perp, female = victim.

    As a victim of abuse by 2 female family members, I can tell you that in my experience coming forward at any stage was never an option. The paradigm is so linear, that you think no one will believe that women are capable of bad things. Women are busy telling men how bad they are and men are busy telling other men how bad they are that male victims of female sexual abuse feel they will in no way, shape or form be believed, so they stay silent and the circle of silence keeps the discourse the way some people want it.

    Until society acknowledges male victims with anything other than lip service then those buried, hidden victims will continue to suffer, whilst the help they need is diverted to the more important gender.
