Hi Ken,

My thesis specifically addresses the socially-produced norms that deny the coherence of the subject position "male victim of female sexual abuse" in western culture. My research was not clinical, but theoretical, working from ideas developed in feminist theory, gender theory, and queer theory.

I would be happy to forward a copy.


And let the darkness fear our light.

Hey Cement,

I'd be interested in seeing this also, if you don't mind sharing.

yup. Interested in participating/knowing more about the lack of literature on male survivors of female perpetration.

The best book I've ever read on abusive women and mothers, and an incredible book in general, is "Understanding the Borderline Mother" by Christine Ann Lawson. You have two of her articles listed above. It's incredibly informative about the dynamics of families with abusive mothers and written in a very moving, accessible style.

If I can add one, "Come Here" by Richard Berendzen with Laura Palmer is one of the first books I read about CSA and was very helpful to me in understanding the power and control of an abusive mother. Here is an article that talks about the book and Berendzen's abuse in some detail.
Nothing there. It subsumed me. Black hole in time and space.

And yet.

It seemed like what I was made for.

Its obvious who the enemy is I mean serously check this out these feminists blame us for their actions.
These feminists have a talk show and in this episode, they decide to talk about male victims of domestic violence. To start off, they stress that women are the overwhelming victims of violence, and what male victims there are are only victims by technicality and don't really deserve to be counted. Then they bring on a feminist doctor who goes into further detail that denying a woman money counts as domestic violence. She also explains how when you study the statistics the proper/feminist way, you can see that women are the overwhelming majority of victims. The feminist head of a shelter for only women and children begrudgingly admits that it is harder for men to receive help than women and she sounds a bit disappointed when she adds that some of her shelters actually do a little to help men. When confronted with an American study finding that men and women engage in violent and controlling behaviors at comparable rates, the feminists naturally disregard them on the grounds that they have faulty methodology. The study found that women are violent and it asked the same questions regardless of sex, so clearly it must be faulty.

But probably the most abhorrent thing said was that a significant proportion of males classified as victims are actually perpetrators. She stresses that those who help male victims have to be trained to screen these men to make sure they aren't actually perpetrators. Naturally, no such precautions are necessary for women who claim to be victims. These are the sentiments expressed by the director of domestic violence shelters across Britain. The doctor agreed that it was necessary to scrutinize male victims more than female

Hey all, just came across a recent article that compiled data on female perpetrators and thought I'd share. Among the statistics are that women account for about 20% of reported sexual offenses, and 70% of them are mothers perpetrating on their own children. Lots of other stunning information.
