There are men here on MS who share the same you've just done. I've read them around. I hope you see those too? Knowing you're not alone, not just the validation of your truth, which all of us will do, but to read others expressing the same is a power

I just stumbled onto this now and thought it would be of interest to some here. I found it very enlightening about how it's not just men abusing, but women too. I didn't find it triggering. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQhEv9Ov7nQ
