I found this an interesting document: http://www.stopitnow.org/downloads/Prevent_CSA.pdf

one of the quotes:

Some sexual abusers were victims of abuse or neglect as
children. Itís not an excuse, just a fact. But many victims
of sexual abuse live their lives without ever becoming
sexual perpetrators themselves.

I heard some figure like 8 percent go on to perpetrate...? It may vary with the study.

I'm glad they at least included this statement, Mark.

The myth that abused boys are likely to go on to become abusers themselves is one that just refuses to die, it seems. There's a good account of it here on the site: http://www.malesurvivor.org/myths.html , myth no. 6 on this list.

Much love,
Larry
