in my town, there are many government, church, public and private resources for FEMALE victims, and only ONE service for MALE survivors.
that one office is supposed to service an area with a population of about 2 million people.
It is NOT free. there is quite a waiting list.
i was told point blank that men are NOT welcome at any of the female group therapy sessions because the abusers were all male and it would be difficult, if not impossible, for women to feel safe enough to speak freely with a man in the room.
very few resources have been allocated to male survivors.
i did find ONE therapy group for men, but it was only available by court order to men who had been convicted of sexual offences, were at risk to reoffend, and were themselves victims of CSA.
i tried to enroll but...
of course, it was overbooked, and i did not qualify, since i was not a criminal.
i guess we men are just supposed to tough it out.
that is what i had to do mostly.
no wonder so many of the abused males become male abusers.
i would wager that a significant majority of male survivors NEVER reveal their hidden history.
can you win the game, if you don't know the rules?
can you make repairs, if you don't have the tools?
