Mankind, a UK support service for male victims of abuse, is running a survey to discover how people discuss sexual violence against males on social media:
We want to hear your views about how the sexual abuse of men and boys is being talked about on social media – tell us which of the campaigns work for you and share your ideas about what you think is needed. The survey is completely anonymous.
The information that you provide will only be used for research purposes to help us develop new services and campaigns.
IMPORTANT: We know that talking and thinking about sexual abuse can bring up a range of emotions. You know yourself best, so please make sure you only answer what you are comfortable with and feel free to stop at anytime if you want to. There’s also a section at the end of the survey that gives information about other services if you would like to contact someone for some additional support.
I took the survey. It is rather short and presents several clips for people to watch and review. The questions pertain to whether the video changed your perspective on the topic presented in it, whether it changes a general understanding of the topic, and how the public may respond to it.
If you have twenty minutes, consider taking the survey. You do not have to be a survivor of abuse. It is merely an attempt to better understand the types of videos that would work best on social media.
