#TOTW from 29-05-15 “Male Rape – Victims suffer. Survivors speak.”

Hey Folks!

The subject of this week’s #TOTW isn’t pretty, but then it can’t always be that way:

(1/2) Watch this short video to see how rape affects men as well as woman  Why abused men need the support to say ‘I’ve been raped’:

(2/2) Rape doesn’t just happen to women. Men, women, gay, str8, bi, trans -it affects everyone  ‘I was raped by another man. Now the state is cutting the one thing that saved my life’

I like to think that one of the purposes of my blog is to educate not only myself, but also you, the reader. I have known friends that have suffered male rape, and it’s not pretty. Whether you’re a guy or a girl, it happens to both. You may not know about it, or even want to know about it, but the purpose of my tweets and this blog is just to put the message out there. You may or may not know people that have gone through this. It happens.

If you didn’t see or read my tweets earlier in the week, then please take just a few minutes to educate yourself such that you can be there for a friend or relative, should you even need to be. Hopefully it will be information that you never have to call upon.

Stay safe and be happy.
