Male Abuse Awareness Week

December 1 was the start of Male Abuse Awareness Week. More information about MAAW can be found on help4guys.org and on the MAAW Myspace page.

In keeping with the goal of this week, I would readers to post links to articles or blog posts concerning male victimization on this thread.

  1. I wrote three blog posts this weekend – all related to male victimization.

    On a large UK survey which found similiar lifetime results for male rape (incl made to penetrate) as the NISVS 2010 Report:

    On a couple of large South African studies finding that at least half of the rape victims aged 10-19 are boys:

    On how Salon (and Huffington Post) failed by erasing male victims of rape and sexual abuse when writing an article fittingly titled “America still doesn’t know how to talk about rape”:

  2. On a slightly different note; I haven’t seen the videos on the help4guys site, but I found the female “cop” picture they used jarring. Why use a sexualized picture which most people will think isn’t of a real cop?

    Something like the picture used on this page would be better for a photo of “a policewoman signalling ‘stop'” in my view.
