The poster reads:
1 in 6 males are sexual abused before age 18 - far more than are at risk for diabetes (1 in 10) or heart disease (1 in 8).
At 8 I became a statistic - at 30 I became a survivor. (Most male survivors take at least 20 years to begin healing - if they ever do)
For 22 years I lived in silence. Now I want the world to know - what happened to me can happen to anyone. Both the abuse and the healing.

“For every 100 friends you have on Facebook, 15-20 (at least) are survivors of sexual abuse.”

THIS IS AWESOME. I can’t wait till victims are no longer shamed and we start putting the blame on those who deserve it. Awesome for people like this man who has so much strength to speak out. I know through my personal experienced I was shamed by close friends. To see someone go all the way I can’t imagine doing that myself.
fuck yeah man my day is so much better
