Not sure if I am doing this correct, but trying to link to a post Ken Singer made on this very same subject on November 20th in the Male Survivor forum. Topic was called "My girlfriend thinks all survivors become abusers" ... Hopefully this works!!

However, the consensus is that a victim does not become an offender in the overwhelming majority of cases of csa. In my 30+ years working with offenders (and I do ask about their sexual histories including victimization), the majority have no experience with sexual victimization done to them.

The analogy I use is that if you went to a drug rehab center and asked heroin addicts if they used marijuana before they went to heroin, the large majority would say yes. However, if you asked the same number of marijuana users if they went on to use heroin, the vast majority would not use it. Being victimized does not make one a potential abuser.
