Boys Also Get Sexually Abuse!

Working globally against paedophiles, it still astounds me that so many boys, who are either trafficked or sexually abused are ignored or shunned.

Boys or men very rarely come out & share their nightmares, due to a social stigma of embarrassment or shame.

I’ve said it before, I’ve even come face to face with charities that do not help boys, one CEO telling me, “Girls bring in more donations”. It made me so mad to hear this.

I’ve been to places where boys are more in demand & more expensive to buy to rape, then a girl. There is a very large community of paedophiles, that have fetishises over boys, not girls.

So, for those statistic lovers, according to the most recent Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS 2017), Personal Safety Survey, 5% of men & 11% of women in Australia report having been sexually abused before the age of 15 years.

In total, the ABS estimates that approximately 1,410,100 people living in Australia experienced sexual abuse before the age of 15. Greater than half of these respondents (58%) report being sexually abused for the first time before the age of 10 years.

An Australian birth cohort study found that at age 21 years, child sexual abuse was self-reported by 19.3% of males & 30.6% of females (Mills, Kisely, Alati, Strathearn & Najman, 2016).

Basically, 1 in 6 men have experienced sexual violence involving physical contact at some point in their lives.

Other statistics (cdc.gov – Center for Disease & Control – USA) show:

  • Nearly 1 in 38 men have experienced completed or attempted rape during their lifetime.
  • About 1 in 4 male rape victims experienced it for the first time between 11-17 years old.
  • About 1 in 4 male rape victims reported that it occurred before age 10.

I receive messages from men who share their stories with me & they all say, if they come out with their story, people won’t believe & not support them. This must change.

A child is a child, regardless of gender. We must start supporting both genders, on the same level.
