Great article, thanks tshodson!
This sentence struck me:
"Narcissism in our society is rampant, and can be a result of an early violation which leads to a lack of empathy in later life.
The Narcissistic wounding which occurs when a child's boundaries have been violated can lead to an inability of the victim to be able to be vulnerable, and many men will spend their entire lives avoiding true intimacy."

Thanks peroperic2009. I really think this is a supportive article. We need more media outlets to take this issue seriously and to keep it "in the news."

EXCELLENT - love it that she said - most victims DO NOT (emphasis mine!) become abusers!!!
