Can you help us, PLEASE! In ANY way.
NSVRC are fake allies to male survivors. One in four men will be the victims of at least one unwanted s*xual experience across their lifespans. Groups such as the National S*xual Violence Resource Center who trumpet the utterly bogus "1 in 71 men are r**ed" statistic are NOT interested in listening to or supporting male survivors. That stat is cherrypicked to make it appear as though male s*xual assault/abuse isn't really a problem in the United States, and is another way these groups try to pit male and female survivors against each other. It's purely political. It's time to stop the pointless bias against male survivors of s*xual abuse and to put fake allies on notice.
I'm so proud to share my story as a survivor. https://youtu.be/EqVmHWwSpYQ
