Britischer "Guardian" berichtet über vergewaltigte Männer
"You don't feel like a person any more. You feel like a thing. Like you're subhuman. It gets to you, and you stop thinking of yourself as human.

The first-person accounts posted on Reddit last week by survivors of sexual abuse have many familiar elements. They recount post-traumatic stress and emotional damage, the sexual dysfunction and difficulties forming relationships, and – most commonly – the disbelief and victim-blaming that greet attempts to report or share the details, even with trusted friends.

Ohne uns aus feministischer Sicht gemeingefährliche Maskulisten gäbe es diese Entwicklung nicht.
