Notes

Abstract: In today's society, silencing male rape has become more socially accepted than the actual assault; it has become more prevalent and yet, undeniably less reported. All rape is gruesome and inconceivable, but the reporting process should not be another assault on these victims; it should be the beginning of a long healing process. If at least one victim reported their crime unharmed, then it could give others the courage to do the same. Victims should not have to suffer in silence; they need support and strength to comprehend what they have experienced. Men need to be publicly informed that they do not have to suffer alone and others out there can help them cope; how many men need to suffer before change comes?
