I’m not sure how to write this but I want to say thank you, the article you wrote has touched me, but also as a male survivor, I’m glad to see such articles are appearing and that the voice is being raised to say, ‘No, no more, not again’. And thank you for saying it can happen to men as well – that means a lot!
Hearing about the project made me acknowledge what had happened last year. It kind of made me have acceptance for something that i had blamed myself for, for such a long time and made me realise that there are so many other people in the same position.
I think its really important that these things are spoken about as so many people don’t realise the long term effects it can have or they have the mentality ‘it wont ever be me.’ but being in the wrong place at the wrong time means it can be you.
But mostly for me, it made me talk about it and in a way made me forgive both the guy involved and myself.
