I've been thinking recently. One in six males has been abused. What do these survivors do to support themselves when they grow up ?

I know of a pro football player, a singer in a popular rock band. Survivors cross a wide range of occupations. I am an engineer. What are you?

Cool idea. What do we do? Great question.

I'm a university professor in Germany, where I teach Arabic and Middle East history. I've been there 8 years, and before that I taught at the University of London.
