Description

Underreported and underdiscussed, male sexual child abuse is a topic that is often brushed under the rug due to social norms and the child's fears of being labelled a homosexual or future perpetrator. Data from various studies indicates that the problem is much more widespread than initially thought, but because such a small percentage of victims ever come forward, the data is skewed. In this episode we delve into this topic and discuss it freely and openly.

I'm finding this episode so very helpful. For personal reasons I had to cut ties with my Mother and Grandmother and then additionally anyone who chose to remain in contact with them. It's so very very hard so massive kudos to each of you for coming out the other side with good insight and awareness. Hearing this from figures I hold respect and admiration for has helped, it's hard to verbalise but I think I found it reassuring and comforting to hear the challenges that others faced as a result so I feel a bit more validated in the decisions I too have had to make. I'm from the UK and I still find certain people to be very judgy on those that have walked away from family despite their reasoning. It's all very black and white to some people so thank you for taking a subject and explaining the true gritty reality and grey areas. You are a fantastic podcast and I truly appreciate the hard work that goes into all you do. I do not see this as entertainment at all, but rather a learning opportunity and in turn its helped me process some personal experiences somewhat. As a result of my upbringing I've been left with a deep need to understand why people do the things they do, the paths that lead us there and the trauma/experiences that impact on us, just to name a few so your podcast and insights help me a lot in my quest so truly THANK YOU 🙏🏼

Sarah-Jane Percy And good FOR you Jim C, I love stories of triumph over adversity and you are definitely that good Sir. You seem like such a decent and authentic soul and I am genuinely pleased to know you are in a good place where you are able to help others. People like you are truly invaluable to this world and you need to know that. Heart felt apologies for what you had to endure as a child but it's made you who are which is truly one on a million and I bet your support has saved so many and will continue to do so. Keep being you 🙏🏼❤️😍 SJ from Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Repressed memories are the worst...But you soldier on and some times it's alone. As a survivor of assault and abuse, I know. Only you and the universe knows your pain. No one else, even if the act was similar. Every ordeal is different.

male or female the abuse and it's affects are real. I never went through that and most days I feel like I'm not gonna get through so to those who have had it harder than I did and find the courage to get through another day, I am humbled

I just wanted to publicly disagree that this episode tried implying that male victims have it worse than female victims. I did not pick up on any of that at all, and I found the episode to be very well put together. Very raw & absolutely emotional. Mike, I applaud your authenticity. Thank you for sharing your story.

Patrick McIntosh @Patrick McIntosh it's not that women can't handle hearing about men getting raped or molested it's that society's double standards don't allow for you to hear the real statistics. When I speak to most of my male friends, they joke about men getting raped being fruity. This is how society labels male rape and female rape. If a woman is raped she is either looked at as a liar or damaged goods. If a man is raped, automatic homo. If a woman rapes a man, he is considered lucky. Rape is a deviant crime that has nothing to do with sex and sexuality. It's a violation.

This episode is really powerful, but I felt that a number of times they were trying to imply that male victims have it worse than female victims, which is a pretty offensive thing to say, as if being a victim of sexual abuse isn't bad enough, you had to make it about who has it worse - I think that was really callous. Besides that, this episode was very moving.

Allie P I'm not picking up that vibe at all. I think if you know anything about this topic you know the stigma around child abuse for males, and that's the point they're trying to make. not that it's worse.

Allie P everyone knows females have it worse...they are just trying to show that men can get it too. the fact you get that impression is due to something personal to you
